It was a grey chilly day. Almost no direct sunlight. It is funny how even the tiniest shaft of sun can lift our heads.
Yes, this is the same peacock. The Duke of Kupa’s train is growing so fast! This has surprised me, I thought he would wait until late winter. But already he is working on his show plumage.
Charlotte was definitely up and about yesterday, limping and cranky but fighting back. A huge difference from the other morning when she was still in her bed, while I sat beside her scratching her ears, her head laid down and not moving. Just her eyes. I was even feeding her by holding that bowl under her head. But there is no way she was laying about yesterday. The moment I appeared in the door she was up and hobbling across to see what I had. She had aspirin again yesterday but I will discontinue it today and see how we go. Aspirin is hard on tummys. I am going to collect some willow branches for them instead.
I have begun to gather all the post Halloween pumpkins off people’s porches for Daisy and the chickens. I have heard that pumpkins are a very good natural wormer for chickens. And as you know Daisy will run across a field if she sees a pumpkin being offered.
Our temperatures are fairly stable and cool.
NaNoWriMo. 16528 words so far. I feel like my mind is being taken for a run every day. As though I am in training. This is excellent exercise for the imagination. A thorough workout. I am finding it a bit harder to write with the house full of people and all their noise, which is interesting. I definitely write better when I am alone and it is quiet. Senior son suggested that I just put head phones on but with no music. This also deters interruption. I will give this a trial today.
Have a lovely day
