I often find things when I examine images in the morning as I prepare them for publication. I think that is a jacket? On the post behind the peacock. I know exactly where my one work jacket is so it must be the woodcutters!
He will be splitting wood today! Maybe he will see it and collect it. I don’t pick up after him – not being his mother and all. But I will show him this photograph!
The six chubby chops went out for a run yesterday. And the moment they are out the gate they hurl themselves around their race track.
Pigs are not fond of strange open spaces so they are really fast galloping around the field ending up back on their own turf, much happier.
But these 6 are getting a bit fat a bit fast so they need a good run each day.
I was in a gorgeous little bakery in a nearby town yesterday having a cup of tea and this was on the bathroom wall. It was put out by the society for the prevention of tuberculosis. I am going to research this and see if I can find myself one to hang. I love the Recess advice: “Play Hard but nothing dirty in your mouth”!
Actually some of it is pretty good advice.
So I am thinking this must be from the early 50’s. My mother had TB about that time. She was told she would never have children. But my mother was never very good at doing what she was told! So she had six.
I hope you have a good day. We have had a string of days in the 50’s but I think we drop back closer to winter temperatures today then back up again to rainy spring temps tomorrow. Then back down again. But still above freezing in the daytimes which Piglet will be grateful for.
November was the coldest and snowiest on record in Illinois, and December was almost 5 degrees warmer on average than usual with a record breaking number of tornadoes in Illinois. Not here thankfully. It will be interesting to see how January shapes up. Also interesting to note that the chickens have not slowed down their laying much at all. Only the elders are taking a laying break.
The last few days of full sun have been wonderful.
