    Hey you gals with the chickie young'ens....a while back we were hoping for a warm fall because of the little chickadees hatching. Well, don't know that we can have warmer than this in November!!! Anything warmer would be freaky.

    With this warm weather I am able/willing to spend time in their run with them and am reinforcing their manners...no biting mama's fingers! 1/2 of them have earned names and Curly, one of my RIR loves to sit in my lap and be petted. Earlier today I actually had to put her down so I could go do some work. I think she would have sat there on my lap all day, she even started to fall asleep!

    I can't wait to see it!

    I put up 2 trees in the house for Christmas, 1 in the upstairs which is the "pretty tree" and 1 in the downstairs which tends to be the more "homemade tree" and I am going to hang painted eggs on my tree this year! It will be a "hobby" tree with eggs, gardening items and golden retrievers (my hobbies), saltwater fish, motorcycles and trains (hubby's hobbies) and Steelers and Penguins ornaments-both huge fans!

    My friends already think I'm over the top so a feather wreath...might push me over the edge!

    Darlene....can't wait to see the feather wreath! What an awesome idea!


    btw....Have a question about sprouting the oats. The sprouts look sooo tiny compared to mung beans and lentels. Maybe I need to wait longer for them?
