I gave the chickens a strong admonition yesterday morning, before we left for the day.....eggs or stew pot...their choice. I actually need a fresh flock this spring, my little biddies are getting some age on them. I don't actually enjoy butchering, but it's a farm-life reality.
We went to Kate's for the day. Liam read us a funny story about gossiping (sort of like the telephone game) where the story changes word by word as it goes person by person. Joe sang us a song his class is learning for their Christmas Program. Adelie wore all of us out running a marathon course singing a banana phone song throughout the house....over....and over...and over...soooo funny. Chris has gotten into roasting organic coffee beans and roasted, ground and brewed a yummy pot for after dinner. They made a delicious roast dinner. And they sent us home with a bag of Bob's Red Mill Polenta. Kate and I went through the house re-inventing the wheel so to speak....talking about where she's going to put everything and every-little-body.....now that they just found out she's expecting twins!!
On the way home, it rained harder than either Jim or I have ever seen before. The lines on the freeway were completely obliterated. Like driving through a creek....lengthwise.
