Today Puff laid her eggs! I'm so proud of her! Her second clutch ever! I'm going to let them rest for the night before I remove them to the incubator, and hopefully in 6-12 weeks we will have baby geckos! Flick was such a cute, proud daddy sitting in his tree.
We had a fantastic weekend at the farm, which is why I took a little break from blogging. I try to stay off my computer as much as possible when we are down there just so I can stay more in the moment. It's really wonderful to just spend time outside listening to all the birds and the animals in the surrounding farms. We got the garden all planted and watered with the thunder storms, and secured them with a a little more than 100 feet of chicken wire fencing (and still didn't have enough for the whole garden!) I also decided to wait on planting several of the herbs and flowers because I was a little wary of the cold. But something exciting that we started was a special section especially for the fancy flowers. We got an old tire off the side of the road to plant some flowers in and planted my Iris bulbs beside it. We're on the lookout for three more old tires to finish that little landscaping project, but I think it'll look really nice. Hopefully one day we'll have a bee hive over by that garden, but that's a project for the future.
We always find fun things to do when we're at the farm, whether it's cooking, art, finding new books, starting new projects, or going out to E-Town. We got to go to Rural King this time, and yes, I walked past those big boxes of chicks again, knowing I couldn't bring even one home. They're just so adorable you want to squeeze them! But, of course, you can't even pet the sweet little babies! So, to satisfy my chicken dreams, I had to do some chicken embroidery. I did about five different chickens and was very proud of them! I finished them today and we decided to hang them up in Chris's room. Another highlight of the weekend was that I went running for the first time in years. My calves are still sore! But it made me feel great! Definitely a repeat workout! All in all, a wonderful weekend. What did you do this weekend?
