I am finding the touch screen and (now) silent keyboard of the Yoga Book a much calmer, quieter and gentler start to the day. As you know I work on the images for my blog the night before, load everything onto the page then at 5am I awake and begin to write. It is nice to not have the clack clack of a conventional keyboard – I am a key basher, and the halo keyboard has stopped that behavior right in its tracks. But enough of technology. Meanwhile back on the farm …
Yesterday was cold and windy.
My fat little piglets grew about an inch in every direction.
We are still awaiting the arrival of the chicks and ducklings. They are coming from separate hatcheries and are racing each other through the countryside. They are transported by the Post Office so The Postmistress, who is one of the original members of the Fellowship of the Farmy, is tracking them and will hopefully receive them for us at the Post Office this morning. We hope. If they do come this morning she will call me and keep them warm until I arrive.
I hope they come this morning. Usually it is a lot warmer for an April delivery, this is why I ordered them for April. So lets hope they are travelling OK. I have had chicks delivered like this since I arrived in America and we have only ever had one delivery problem.
When I have sent this out into the ether I will turn all the heat lamps on so if they do arrive today everything will be warm for them.
I hope you have a lovely day.
