Some Fall Eggs & Fall Color, Colder



Some Fall Eggs & Fall Color-
The spring pullets we bought have finally put on their big girl pants, so to speak. They're finally laying! Someone is anyway, I just don't know who. I told Dave they were "practicing" last weekend, sitting quite a while in the nesting boxes. One per box, that's a relief! I've seen two piled in before, not pretty! Monday I found one very petite egg, another today. How cute! With the weather change I'm actually seeing leaves slowly falling. It was 40 last night, furnace clicked on! Jacket weather, and time to start ripping a few things out of the garden. The squash are getting mildewed. It's supposed to be back up to mid-70's next week. Only 62 today. I have the next 4 days off work, 2 are "furlough". We used to have in-services for we classified people, but the $$$ was cut. I'll be doing some projects- painting my inside front door, making nectarine jam, getting some winter/fall clothes out. Time for a change of season! I'm hoping for lots of snow. Snow = snow days!!!







Mom, that flash is killing my eyes! I just wanted a drink, sigh. Poor Anya...

Pretty eggs! My girls are still laying pretty steadily for the time of year. Cold air is coming in tonight I hear. My kitty I just lost used to only drink out of a running faucet too!!
