Why is this a bad thing? I talk to myself the whole day – of course I pretend I am talking to the dogs. But – however. Thinking out loud helps clarify things. In fact, thinking out loud is a good way to get rid of cerebral rubbish. Taking out the verbal trash so to speak – please excuse the pun. And that process is best done alone sometimes. Most times actually.
That second to last duck photo is my favourite.
Let me know when you get bored of duck pictures. But now that we have finally made friends, or at least made peace, I am getting to really like them. Boo and I sit and watch them for ages sometimes. My research tells me that they should start to lay in about a month. The beginning will be staggered so there will not be a day suddenly filled with duck eggs. I think they will take us all by surprise. There is concern that they may not begin if it gets too close to fall but we will see. September is a perfect month.
Also now that it looks like they are settling in I will have to think about a proper house for them.
There is talk of a new restaurant being built down the road – about 9 miles down the road – with a microbrewery! Can you imagine the possibilities for a farmer like me. I am going to go down and nosy about today – see if I can find out some info. This may be a really great bonus for the pigs. HURRY UP! I will say!
Jake’s restaurant is still coming along. They are making the Hood for the kitchen now and after that it is just appliances. The dining room looks marvelous. But he is working with a budget so things must happen in a certain order and slowly so as not to break the bank and his back.
The ducks found the barn yesterday – at least they stay in a tight flock so they are really easy to herd. And so LOUD that I never lose them. They honk and laugh out loud, chattering away in their deep voices. All day long. Betraying their whereabouts. I can tell from the house if they are straying.
I hope you have a lovely day.
I loved having you pop in to check on One Drop Meadows garden progress yesterday.
We are a Fellowship aren’t we. You are all so supportive of me and mine and each other too. I would be lost without the Lounge of Comments.
