Animal Blessings and Angel Food Cake

Posted by mrssmythe on May 10, 2017 in Baking, Chickens, Critters, Garden, Seasons, Week in Review |

No, we haven’t decided to let the chickens come into the house – this is just Pepper, trying to lure them in with some scratch…which she should not be doing, but which I found funny enough to photograph. In the end, the chickens held to their good manners and did not come inside. Pepper gave them the […]

I was in Ginger’s room this afternoon, washing walls in preparation for a long overdue paint job we’re planning for this weekend. Ginger was helping me pull furniture away from the walls, and then she sat down on the bed to read with her rabbit, Opal. Mr. Wa, who inhabits Ginger’s room most hours of the day, was also […]
