It snowed here in the Seattle and surrounding areas. I’m excited, but I’m also a bit worried about my hens getting too cold. I can hear them outside announcing their eggs as I write this. It’s 25 degrees right now, but the lows are expected to drop into the teens again this evening. The girls have been regularly laying daily. Five hens, five eggs a day. I feel blessed to have them, and I’d like them to be as comfortable as possible–without getting too warm–as we go through our blustery weather.
In other news, I have started occupational therapy (OT) for my vestibular disorder. I got sick after the first one. OT says it is normal. I have two more this week. I just want to be on land soon. All this motion has me feeling like I’ve been out at sea on a raft for the past six weeks.
I took a drive last month and found these beautiful snow geese on the side of the road. They are just beautiful, and the pictures do not do them justice. The white blanket of snow geese to go on and on as far as the eye can see.
GI Joe, decided he was above the rules and shimmied out to take a closer shot. He actually helped to create the following shots for me when he scared them into flight.
They filled the sky. It was amazing.
