Cat Sketch

Last night I was "home alone," so to speak, so I picked up my sketch pad for the first time in a really long time. My cat was drowsing on the back of the couch, so I took the opportunity to draw her. Not perfect--she kept moving her head--but I think I got her eyes right.

First Eggs!

In May, we got some new baby chicks. Yesterday, we had one 2.4 oz brown egg, from one of the Turkens, and a lovely little green egg, from one of the Araucanas. The Turken laid it on the floor (not surprising, since 2.4 oz is really big for a first egg--it probably caught her by surprise), but the green egg was in the nest box. This morning, all three eggs were in the nest box--two more greens and a pinkish brown that could be Araucana or could be Turken.

Here's a pic:
