I ran home again on my lunch hour to feed the baby kitties and when I left to go back to work the sky looked a little weird but I thought that there’s no way it’s going to rain right? Well about an hour later the sky opened up and it just poured. So why was I so worried about this? Well when I got done feeding the kitties the chickens came around and it kind of freaked me out. I didn’t know if they would be mean to the little kitties and start pecking on them so I grabbed a handful of bread and fed the chickens down by the barn. That way they’d stay away from the cats. So I put all 5 of them back on the porch and just hoped that they’d stay there. Now with it raining, I was not only hoping that the chickens wouldn’t be mean to the cats, but also that they stayed on the porch and didn’t jump off again and drown. Man oh man these cats are becoming a lot of work aren’t they? So I was kind of nervous and just hoping that I wasn’t coming home to a bunch of dead cats on our lawn and this is what I found
Yup, no dead cats .. just a lot of little kitties that are meowing a lot! And then to top it off, later tonight William asked when we got 6 cats? What? These cats are multiplying as if they were some kind of fish in the bible or something! I guess Reno found another one and put it with the rest by the house. I think she needs to stop looking for these cats don’t you?
Well tonight was a big night for our new chickens. They’ve been in jail (the cattle tank) now for a couple of weeks, so I left them out to run around in the brooder house. They have the whole 1/2 of this chicken coop and for some reason they all ran into the chicken cage that was being stored in the room. Now I’m not saying anything bad about these chickens – but they just might be a little socially challenged.
And while I was working on getting these chickens free, Daryl and William were working on replacing a supporting beam in the cattle shed. I was so glad that no one got hurt and also that William was around to help Daryl. Looking at how heavy that beam was, I’m sure that there wouldn’t be any way that I could help much. So I was just hovering with my camera and took this picture of Earl.
He’s so stinking cute isn’t he? And then I also took one of Sam. Daryl had the chain saw going and tractors and just a lot of noise. But Sam just kept watching and eventually moved to the bale that was the closest to the guys and just stood there and watched. It was pretty funny!
Now the photo of the day is that of butter. Yup, butter. I bought this the other day and I’ve just never seen or bought anything like it before. It’s butter wrapped up in parchment paper that a local farm sells near us. I’m not sure if it tastes anything different, but it’s about as fresh as you can get. Plus it looks kind of cool too.
