New Life. I Celebrate

Oh my god! Such an exciting morning here in Lloyd where it is cool and sunny and green and blue and golden and very, very fine. First off, here's fourteen seconds of what my day looks like every day.

Open the door to the hen house and the ducks explode forth and waddle their way to that shed on the left where they shovel all of the cat food into their big flat beaks. And boy, are they happy about it!
As you can see, this is quite entertaining to Maurice.

All right. Here's the exciting part. Last night Mr. Moon discovered one of the hens from next door brooding on a nest in an outside corner area of the garage. We laughed and worried because she's outside and on the ground but...disturbing her would have been...disturbing.
I went to take a picture this morning and this is what I saw.


Can you see?

Look closer.


That's a tiny yellow peep head poking out there! They are so still. And I am so worried that something will come and eat them. But maybe not. I do believe that's probably the child of Elvis, Jr. 

I am filled with wonder and I'm not even kidding you.

And now I must go off for a walk and then get to town to pick up a few things because Lon and Lis are coming tonight and we will have a birthday celebration for my darling friend. 
Although I sort of just want to pull up a chair and watch this maternal scene all day long. 
Oh my. Oh my. Oh my. 

Happy Friday, y'all.

Love...Ms. Moon

  2. If she saw this, my daughter would explode from joy and wonder, just absolutely loose her mind! I'm so happy just thinking of her right now and how she would react.
    Happy day to you.

  4. Baby peep! Do you think there are more? Are you going to make a little fence around her for protection?
