I really need to get out more.
This is our new dog toy. A pink piggie with a squeaker inside. I had to take a photo of it before the cute little guy is slathered in slobber and dog hair. I also bought a yellow duck (must be fair and buy two of everything,) but I thought two photos of a dog toy was pushing the loser envelope just a tad. So I restrained myself and for that, I am proud.
This is what the sky looked like yesterday morning before the rain. Black and ugly. I was sure we were going to get hammered, but surprisingly, just a heavy rain followed. It was in the 70s and cloudy for the rest of the day, which was a welcome respite from the high 90s the day before. See the heart shape in the left hand corner? That must have been Mother Nature's way of saying, it won't be so bad this time...
Speaking of nature, we have a new baby on the farm. Well, we had three, but two disappeared from the time I discovered them to the time I was able to get the coop door blocked. The guinea eggs were hatched by one of our Royal Palm turkey hens and she's not the greatest mother. Whenever I enter the coop, she tries to run out, leaving her little baby in the dust. So I blocked the freakin' door with an old window. You hatched it, you take care of it. That's my motto.
Okay. Just this one more. I promise.
