This week; one for the books

This week has been a whirlwind. It started with me being at a conference in Dallas, Texas, and as seems to be always the case if I go anywhere in the spring that is when baby animals will be born. On Sunday Caro gave birth to two baby boys. So without further ado, let me be the first to introduce you to Merry…

And Pippin.

That’s right we had twin filthy hobbits.

Then on Monday my dad had knee replacement. A surgery thirty years in the making.

And within a couple hours of being back in his room the physical therapist had him up and walking the halls.

Tuesday I finally caught the first fish of the year out of my pond, not the monster tuna I was looking for but it’s a start.

I then found a life lesson in the koi pond, “be careful to not bite off more than you can chew.”

Poor froggy couldn’t get the other froggy all the way down before he croaked.

Thursday I was at work when I got messaged that one of our backyard residents had decided the front porch might be a nice place to hang out.

Then the Turken rooster decided to travel from the goat pin to the chicken run and pick a fight.

With severe storms headed in tonight, we will have to see what else this week has left in it.

the unique cabin #3

This is another installment in my series of blog posts about how our cabin has items that make it unique amongst all cabins, and possibly all homes, around the world.  For todays post I looked at one of the largest items that inhabits our home, and one that other homes in the country setting may in fact also have and that is a five foot tall metal rooster.

So while rooster art may be common, few I imagine would keep it in the living room.  Right?   Okay so others may have a rooster, but how many also have a metal rabbit playing on a laptop?

In the unlikely chance that  another cabin has the rooster and rabbit combo (doubtful), let me throw in the item that will put our home over the top.  How many others also have …..wait for it…. a three foot tall  penguin wearing a party hat and bow tie.
