Turkey Tracks: February 10, 2014
DIVA UPDATE and WINTER PLEASURES
The Diva Queenie continues to heal and hang out. She is picking up weight not and is noticeably heavier when I pick her up.
If I’m going to be in the kitchen at all, I let her out, and she strolls around investigating, flying up to the counters (where she is immediately removed), and following my shoes and picking at the buckles. I’ve almost stepped on her at least twice.
Here she is with the straw basket that is driving her crazy.
Winter pleasures include pulling a bag of frozen tomatoes out of the freezer so a few can grace a lamb stew. What a treat in mid-winter. I also put in some of my dried zucchini and frozen green beans.
AND, winter pleasures include a bunch of flowers. These did double duty–at the Coastal Quilters Meeting last Saturday and, now, in my dining room–with all the snow outside.
Actually, that picture shows a line of turkeys coming into the yard. I have about twenty to thirty around the house most days–which is another winter pleasure. This morning they all talked to me as I let out the chickens.
