MURPHY-LAST DAY FOR THE POP UP SHOP

20 12 2015

GREETINGS

We are having a bit of a cold snap but for Christmas Eve  day its suppose to be around 60.  Too warm but we will take it.  I am sure we will get plenty of snow in the new year.

MURPHY

Murphy is a great rooster, hatched right here on the farm he is truly the kindest and gentlest .  Two nights ago I came home from the pop up shop and did my usual animal routine.  I lock up each coop and count chickens.   Murphy,Francis and Miss Speckles were missing.  I got my large flashlight and ran out to their yard.  There himself was with his wings covering the two girls.  The netting  covering  the top of their run came down and covered their doorway so they couldn’t get into the door.   He takes care of his girls and knows when one is missing and will go back out and stay with her and nudge her to come in.

Francis is quite old in chicken years, yet she goes out every day and in summertime still manages to lay some beautiful blue eggs.

LAST DAY FOR THE POP UP SHOP

Today is the last day for the Pop Up Shop.  Its been so interesting .  As a group we offer diversity in products and we would like to do it again.  Many of our customers wanted to know where and when we would be again.  Its given us all something to think about.  I have met new crafts people and got to spend some time with my friend Susan.  I have also learned  a lot about doing this.  Its fun and exciting and a short commitment at a busy time.

CHRISTMAS YIKES!!!!!

With so much going on with shows and making things I am so far behind.  Hope to catch up in the next few days.  I haven’t even made my Christmas cards yet so they will be  late.  I do have an idea though and it has something to do with Cosmo..

Hope you have a wonderful day and many thanks for reading my blog.  Carole
