The neighbor and I have been doing tag-team animal care the past week or so: she dealt with our beasts while we were in Virginia, and this week I am petting her cats and feeding her fowl. The chickens in my care are easy keepers. Although on Day Two I had to nudge a couple of them with a pole because I had not seen any movement from them in the past 36 hours. Since then I have noticed that they move around when I am not there. Whew! That's a relief!
Here's what the funny things look like:
It was such a nice day, I set the Thanksgiving table outdoors. We enjoyed the turkey, the fennel, potatoes, cauliflower, and shortbread. Not a traditional Thanksgiving meal, but then, I have never been accused of traditional meals.
While we are on the subject of meals, I should say that tonight's "light" meal was to be a quinoa, navy bean and kale stew. I just went out to pick the kale in my garden. No kale! That Spouse o' Mine weeded this morning!!! (Why does he go into my garden?!)
And after Thanksgiving diner, they began bike repair and tune-ups.
