Yoga with Mabel...


When Mabel isn't foraging for food, possibly laying an egg?? or sleeping, I've caught the odd glimpse of her trying to teach yoga.


I believe, and correct me if I'm wrong, this is Kundalini.


Poppy caught sight of this..


...and gave it a go.  But, being a boy, it was awkward and hard to watch.
I looked away, busying myself with a button on my sweater.


He moved on.


On the egg front...we are getting an egg a day.
I still don't know by whom!


In your honest opinion, do you think I over shot on purchasing the egg basket so soon?

LOL You're funny! Getting the basket ahead of time was a great idea. One must always be prepared, you know.

Great, Heather. Do you remember that tiny little picture book called 'Yoga for Cats'?

I love the egg basket! It looks so cute and country-ish even with one egg in it ;) Or even empty too!

I too purchased an egg basket like this... since we actually only have 5 chickens, meaning usually 5 eggs max per day, I've used it more to harvest veggies from my garden!

Those first eggs are so exciting, but if I remember correctly ours turned into ducklings. LOL. We loved that.

Will you please let me know when the garlic is ready for sale, I missed it last year. And I am down to my very last head of Armstrong garlic. I so loathe having to eat the white "made in China" garlic. And I just can't find anything else anywhere.

No, because you are going to have all sorts of eggs when you add those chickens!
Love those ducks - I saw baby lambs yesterday and fell in love. Guess what is coming to live on the farm in two weeks... :)
