new babies!


After weeks of watching our sweet little Henny Penny sitting on eggs we weren't sure would ever hatch, we found a peep in the cage with her. Then a little while later, there were two...and three. Well, I think there are three. She's still hiding them under her wings and since we only ever see two at a time, I can't be 100% sure. But I'm thinking there are three. We'll know in a day or so when they get big enough to wander freely through the cage.

I know it's still, technically January, but there's just something about new babies that makes me long for spring. And maybe having a few new chicks around will make the wait seem a lot less unbearable. And while I'm at it, a few potted orchids would brighten up the place. I could bake frosted flower shaped cookies too. Put away the last of the Christmas stuff.

Oh, yeah...the Christmas stuff. That really needs to be done before I jump to spring, doesn't it? I've officially moved it to the top of my to-do list. Put away the last of the Christmas stuff before it's time to take it back out again.

And then I'm making cookies!

Until the next time...I'll be watching for more chicks to hatch!
