Making up for time lost

Thursday, April 2, 2009

...time lost to a lack of DSL!!!! Well, lightening and DSL don't like one another too well... but I'm back online, and boy do I have pictures to post!

We recently picked up our latest round of chicks for the chicken farm. We now have a dozen more little peeps on the farm... some Red Sex-Links, Aruacanas, and Golden-Laced Wyandottes. The Aruacanas will be interesting - they are called the "Easter Egg" chickens - they lay eggs that can be blue, pink, green, or shades thereof. Courtney already has his favorite chick - she's an Aruacana - her name is Greta - she has a little bit of a crooked beak. Yeah, he dotes on her... ha ha!

Spring has also arrived here in the Ozarks. Grace got a real kick out of helping me hang laundry on the line the other day. She really gets into it... it's so cute.

We also did a trial run at our blackberry smoothies - no, our blackberries aren't fruiting yet (that's a July thing), but we had some frozen from last year that we decided to get out. It was a nice reminder of the wonderful tastes of summer soon to come to the Goff farm! Yummmmmm!!

Grace has also really embraced the idea of being a cowgirl... she came out of her room the other day with hat on and riding her pony! I guess Daddy will have to get her a REAL pony someday - fat chance. (He's not a horse guy - seriously.)

And the last of the updates, Grace apparently has a new sleeping buddy. Our female cat, Stormy, has apparently gotten past all of Grace's flipping and flailing in bed, and has decided it's an A-OK place to sleep at night. How sweet...
