I’m not good at taking pictures. My phone isn’t good at taking pictures, but maybe this next one will show what my brother brought home today.
We now have three turkeys ( Bronze) and five chickens (Silver Laced Wyandottes). They are all females. My studio is warm from their lamp so I may be playing to the chicks. They are so soft and cute.
Withing a couple months brother will make a portable coop so that they can range around our yard without predators being able to get them, (finger crossed and enough smarts in the building end of things.
So maybe I’m not counting my chickens before they hatch. Rather I am counting my Eggs before they are laid. And a little bonus:
I’m counting my hugs before they are given. Can’t wait!

When I mentioned to my hubby the word of the day, he said, “Which ham? Rosie, Teddy, or Kali? Between them you have a whole hog!”
Above starting at the ginger, Teddy. Black bump is Rosie. Kali is hogging the foreground. Hard to believe they can now get along like this. Now they have races up and down the hallway sounding like a herd of elephants!
Now back to the weather. Rain and snow predicted for the next few days. More adventures with Kali and friends to follow.
This Stream of Consciousness Saturday with prompt “ham” brought to you by Linda G Hill. Thanks for the inspiration!
Sometimes you are sitting there minding your own business when someone says they like you.
I’m so excited I can hardly sit still!
I learned about TINK (or Killer as he wants to be called–I think he’s a he–my nose is good but I can’t seem to pull TINK into nose range). They have a 4-legses meet and greet and tell about another one.
Yeah, this looks like the same picture as the one before but I was so astounded by the news it was hard for MommaDar to get a steady picture. Anyway, the other meet and greet was set up by a 2-legses doctor. But that’s okay, she loves 4-legses!
This was supposed to be a picture of the rain and snow I had to deal with on our last “outside” but it wasn’t coming down hard enough to show, so another me! I sure am pretty! And I love when MommaDar whispers sweet nothings in my ear! Especially if life is going to be only ‘inside’ for a few days. I don’t like the river at the bottom of my steps. MommaDar says there is nothing she can do to stop this wet weather. Not sure I believe her.
Anyway, glad to meet other bloggers, even if they’re doggers–Kali the poet!
Dog and cats napping together. Teddy, Rosie, and Kali enjoying snooze time. It’s been a little over a month and they are starting to hang out and even play together. At first, they were quite upset when the other was on their blanket. But that is over. Rosie is on the cat blanket. Teddy is on the dog blanket. Kali is touching her own blanket but mostly on my top comforter. It’s so fun to watch them start a friendship.
Happy Linconln’s Birthday. All about how we can get along. Above is how that can happen to what should be mortal enemies can feel comfort in each other’s company. It is possible.
When your day starts looking at this sweetie at the end of your bed, you know you have NO complaint!
Then I finished another Messy Bun/Ponytail hat:
Then I got to spend three hours on Google Chat with my besties M and Y. Lots of laughing! Love them so much!
I even had the chance to write a review about a book that brought back tons of memories: Betsy-Tacy Treasury
I guess you need to find the Complaint Department for some of that. I’m just feeling happy, accomplished, and loved!
And since I took two pictures of Kali, see if this doesn’t just make you want to squeeeeee!
Look at that ear! She knows I’m taking her picture but she tries to maintain the pose! Soft, lovable, sleeping sweetie!

Cat First Aid by American National Red Cross
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
I wish I could read this! It came with instructions to open written parts but that doesn’t work in this book. The font remains so tiny as to need a microscope! Too bad, I’m sure the information is very good! Can’t read and no text-to-speech. FAIL

I have to admit that Rebecca Welti had the most exciting artwork at the retreat. I wanted to be a marine biologist when I was in junior high. That passion never left me even though I was told math would be involved so I pulled myself out of the possibility. But Ms. Welti is self-taught and her passion for the tiny marine beings is contagious. Those strange space aliens are all microscopic creatures of the deep. She wants to make action figures and trading cards for folks to get more involved in this wonderful field. Please go check out her website to learn more. http://www.rebeccawelti.com/
