In the meantime I thought I would hop on here and share a bit that we've been up to. As we find ourselves a step closer to getting back to normal the girls and I have been having some discussion on the projects we would like to tackle around the house and outdoors. I find it very therapeutic to talk about such things! For example I am very excited to be getting new chickens. We got rid of our whole flock at the beginning of this bug situation. I found out that I really miss seeing those silly birds on a daily basis. They come running when you walk outside. They 'greet' us when we pull up form being out and about (really to see if we have any crumbs to throw to them). They just stroll around the property eating all sorts of bugs. Speaking of which, I realized that we may have a tick problem this year! Yikes. When we first moved to this house the kids would get ticks *daily*. I hated having to do tick check duty all day every day. Then we got chickens. Ahhhhh! No more tick problem. The ticks make their annual appearance around March 15, give or take 2 days (no, I'm very serious, it's always within a day or two of the 15th). It takes the chickens about two weeks until we don't see any ticks, but that is a whole lot better than doing tick checks for the WHOLE summer and fall! Needless to say our new chicks will not be big enough to get the ticks at the first sign of them. So we will be dealing with them for longer this year. Oh well.
On to the pictures:
We were on our way up the road to get the mail. Saoirse looked cute with her hood up.
