It's hard for me to explain how happy this makes me.
We have chickens again!
As some of you know, we've been living in town for the past six years after living in the country since 1995. We are country people, temporially living in town.
And in the country we always had chickens.
Today a friend is moving away and needed a new home for her girls. So early this morning Lupine and I set out to pick up the four we were adopting.
And after an eventful and perilous chase of the Americana up and down our quiet street this morning (a chase that ended with me taking a slapstick flying leap into the neighbors bushes to finally catch her) the four ladies are tucked contentedly into our borrowed coop.
I am so happy.
Now all we need is the farm! Universe, I'm ready. Bring on the farm!
