Spring Has Sprung....and The Long Black Train












We are so excited that Spring has finally come to the farm! It seems like it has been a LONG winter and we are a bit stir crazy. So what comes with Spring?? Baby Chickens of course. We are trying to build our flock up a bit so we can keep enjoying fresh eggs (Laurel loves her eggs for breakfast). Also, Grandaddy had this bright idea to put our garden in boxes this year to help with the weeding and watering so we are getting those ready for planting. I LOVE it being dark in the mornings longer (the babies sleep in). I LOVE it getting dark so late! I LOVE everything about Spring. New life, new beginnings, how exciting!

I was at Aunt Ruthie's last weekend and it was 70 degrees. We were able to take several walks and I got lots of pictures. The peacocks are so funny this time of year. The males spend their entire time showing off for the females. The males are so vain this time of year that they look at their reflections in my car and start pecking it, chipping the paint off the car. They do this over and over, not figuring out it is themselves. They sure are pretty but not much in the brains department.

One more reason why I am happy Spring is here. Hopefully the flu & cold season is on its way out. Laurel came down with an awful cold last week and it turned into a terrible ear infection. I'm talking 104 fevers and up all night hallucinating. It was a pretty long week. Noah & I passed a much lighter version around and we are all feeling somewhat better today.

And as for the Long Black Train Video..... What can I say? American Idol is my guilty pleasure :)
