An 80 Degree April Day Outside

Thursday, April 1, 2010

Days like this remind me why we moved out here. The kids and I have been hanging laundry on the line this morning. I love the smell of line-dried laundry. It has a clean smell and a fresh crisp that cannot be attained in a dryer! But one of my favorite things about line-drying the laundry is looking out and seeing tiny little clothes flapping in the breeze... tiny little pajamas... tiny little socks... and even tiny little gloves!


Awhile back I posted that we lost our flock leader, Ginger. Well, I believe another hen has stepped up to take her place. It's amazing. Nature just fills the void. This hen, and I am not exaggerating, naturally - in the void of a leader, took on a different appearance. Her comb grew larger, her feathers deepened in their red color, she got bigger, and her voice even deepened. I've not named her yet, but she really is the little red hen around here!

Very interesting blog. A lot of blogs I see these days don't really provide anything that attract others, but I'm most definitely interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know.
