I’M HERE! Wonder of wonders, I’m actually writing a blog post. I have been writing a couple blog posts lately, but not exactly finishing which is kind of an important detail when it comes to blogging. And a lot of other things, come to think of it. I got most of the way done with a February wrap-up but then it was sort of the end of March. Ah well, try again.
With no after-church small group on Sundays my family has been going on walks and finding other things to do outside because the weather has been amazing lately. This past Sunday it was bordering on uncomfortably hot, but still quite nice. Carmen and Jeff brought the chickens out and Carmen’s goat (oh yes, I haven’t posted about that so for those of you who don’t know – Carmen got a goat and her name is Nellie!) and eventually the bunnies were also brought out. So we had quite the barnyard going on in our backyard.
Here we have Daisy (or is it Moby Chick? I can’t tell without seeing the feet) the hen and her noble steed, Eeyore. This was Jeff’s brilliant idea, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Eeyore wouldn’t put it in the “brilliant” category. She’s not a huge fan of chickens.
Olaf is such an odd rabbit. She can occasionally look pretty though, even with her pink eyes and dewlap.
OH MY. Now this is probably not Olaf’s best angle.
“Who will help me take the wheat to the mill to be ground?” asked the little red hen.
“Not I,” said the slightly-creepy-rabbit.
“Well then, I’ll do it myself!” replied the little red hen, striding away determinedly.
(Actually, I’m not sure chickens are capable of striding.)
Eeyore was eyeing the commotion rather suspiciously from behind her fence. I think she found Olaf especially concerning.
Another brilliant idea Jeff had was putting a chicken on Eeyore’s halter. Thankfully he couldn’t figure out how that worked and Jane the hen was spared.
Bunny on the run! Eeyore is also not a fan of bunnies, and Lavender got a little too close for Eeyore’s comfort resulting in a rather annoyed donkey and rather frightened Lavender.
Wow, Jeff was full of brilliant ideas that day. His third one was to bring Tom out to join in the fun. Tom is the type of cat that probably scorns any association with barnyard animals. He’s rather tuxedo-y and quite indoorsy.
I think you can be the judge of whether Tom thought Jeff’s idea was genius or not.
Oh dear, I didn’t get any good pictures of Nellie! Instead, here are some from a few weeks ago when she joined us on a walk.
Eep, her hooves are so cute and tiny!
That’s it for today, I hope you enjoyed this post of cute animals and brilliant ideas! HURRAH I did it – I finished a post! I’ve actually been pretty busy during all this quarantine stuff with school and also with my Etsy shop which has gotten way busier t
which do you prefer: chickens, bunnies, goats, or donkeys?
do you find olaf cute or not so much?
