Good morning. I hope you all had a wonderful Father’s Day weekend. Our dear friend Roda messaged me a few times this weekend to mention she’d arrived safely and snapped some incredibly great photos of the landscape. Two things I know already… she had an encounter with a moose (who does that???) and is visiting the tundra today. I didn’t know they had tundra in the lower continental United States. I thought you had to go to Alaska, Canada or the Arctic. Maybe she’s not really where she said she was going… hmmm…. and another thing… it’s going to be 95 degrees in New York today (where I live) and Roda knows I hate the heat. How come she gets the cool weather of the tundra and I am stuck here? Eh, maybe I should stop complaining and start enjoying that she’s finally gotten a vacation and a break since… like February… when she came to visit me in NY.
So… back to farm life while she’s away. Baxter and I had a conversation with a few of the animals this morning. Oh, in case you don’t know who Baxter is… he’s my new puppy (13 week male black and tan shiba inu – see below). I can’t share the pictures of the sheep as we have to pretend ‘it never happened‘ but the sheep at Indigo Acres have been eating up all the grass. The odd thing is they spelled a message for me with their eating pattern. I’m fairly certain the message said “Give Us More Food Please” which is kind of humorous. Not only because they’re smart enough to tell me they are still hungry, but they can spell. Who knew? Sheep can spell and communicate. Maybe it’s not Roda texting me all day long when she’s on the farm. Perhaps my days are spent discussing things with sheep?
I’ve just sent a note to the barn cats to snap some photos of the chickens so I can see how many eggs were laid today. I’m trying to convince them to pile up all the eggs in one large mound so they block the door to the chicken coop and Roda can’t get back in when she returns home. I think she’ll love the challenge of trying how to break in without making an omelette large enough to feed a small army. On that note, since my humor is quite bad this morning, I’m gonna sign out before my presence on the blog becomes known. Happy Monday!
