Isn't it crazy how the weather can energize us! During our week of flu sickness, I still managed to get outside for two 60 degree days and finish the barn painting project I had started the day I got sick! Pictures of that to come soon. It looks amazing! Today with the threat of cold rain turning to snow, my usual coop cleaning chores are already done and it's only 10am! I plan on making white chili tonight! I have never tried it before. I think it will be a nice change. It has chicken instead of beef and great northern beans instead of the ranch style beans I normally use. Chili with a little cornbread, chores done, and a warm (but dirty)house. Bring on the snow, I'm ready ☺ The latest chicken news, today I quit turning some of the eggs in the bator, they are due to hatch Friday ☺ My two pullets that hatched early September are laying now! One of my little cochins layed an egg last night and it was the cutest thing, barely bigger than a quarter. It reminded me of Ms. Squirty's first egg, she made quite the fuss that evening and I was so worried about her, around 9pm I came in with the cutest pink egg, I think I even cried LOL! I miss her so much but I have 10 of her offspring and a few of them have her spunky attitude ☺ Stay warm and safe!!!
