Oh, of course it has its ups and downs but today was a lovely life, with my hard working friends and badly behaved piglets.
At the table I asked what the favourite parts of their days were. Megan said it was feeding the baby cow and Hugo said (predictably) Mowing. I made my first batch of Crepe batter today – Hugo tested it – asked to see my recipe and adjusted the Litre of milk to a litre and then a little bit. But it passed the test! We have discovered that Megan likes to do the dishes more than she likes to Trim in the garden. Works for ME!
Look at my breakfast up above! We do have fun.
Only one turkey fell off the workbench today. Megan found it stuck behind the rubbish bin. They always look so confused. I am definitely going to make them a run – very soon. They cannot be unsupervised. Another one was stuck under a branch of the Spruce tree. Without Boo Pointing to it we would never have found it. He has an unusual affinity with the turkeys. (Considering his rather dubious history with small birds) He gets very upset when they are stuck in something. He peers in at the turkey, then back at me, then at the turkey, then back at me, his body adjusting to and fro. Making sure that I know that he has the lost one in his sights. TonTon is a big animal dog. Boo is the guardian of the birds.
My happy Sheila. Back in her big field.
I hope you have a lovely day. I am glad you are a part of this lovely life.
