Ducks are charmingly messy creatures. They love wet conditions: mud, rainy days, puddles to splash in…and they poop a lot. When it comes to bathing, nothing beats ducks for sheer happiness in the water!
The incubators have been quiet for many months now…but no longer. With a couple dozen barnyard mix chicken eggs sitting pretty in the Brinsea, we’ll have tiny fluffballs in the brooder soon.
I’m eagerly awaiting the arrival of spring and summer, when foraging finds will become unique and memorable wines. As I’ve waited, I’ve had to entertain myself by finding other kinds of wine to make…and you know I have!
I’ve been making practice swatches (really, making them, unraveling the yarn, and making new ones)…a lot of them. It’s been fun to learn new stitches, and some are actually pretty challenging – even ones that are supposed to be “easy”!
