Yesterday I babysat the cutest child in the universe (my niece). She was perfect, and so darned adorable I had to take about a billion pics. But I'll just show you one. We had to do the girly thing and smoosh our heads together for a photo. I don't usually have to flop out on the floor for that, but whatever it takes.
This morning was hay delivery day. :-)
On another note, there was an ad on my facebook page today for "elite mature singles" dating, that showed a, uh, distinguished older gentleman. Wait a minute here... Why did they decide that that's my demographic?? I don't think I fall into the "mature" category just yet. There's another one titled "get yourself a man!" or something like that. Makes me think of Jessica Rabbit.
Check out this egg I found in one of the coops today. Yes, it's really an egg! Sometimes the chicken oviduct does some pretty whacky things. That's the weirdest one I've seen.
I also found a tree frog in one of the chicken feeders. That seemed like a very dry and dusty place to be, so I dunked it in some water before I took this photo. Pardon the schmootz (schmutz?) on it's face...
Imagine this scene this evening. I'm sitting at the microscope dutifully working. Outside, a shriek.
Mom: "Katherine!!! Come look at this snake!"
Katherine runs outside, imagining a python or 6 foot rattler on the back porch.
Katherine, with delight: "Ooooh! A king snake!"
I don't see a lot of king snakes around. It was little, just over a foot long. I picked it up and had a good look. Aggressive little thing! I always wear gloves for that!
