An angry, broody hen, who hoards ALL the day’s eggs.

We really only give the girls watermelon when it’s hot, and it’s only 66° right now. But hey. We spoil them ❤️

Good evening folks. This post is about a cat we found on Ebenezer Rd in Clarke County where we live. No one responded to an earlier post on a local lost pets page for our county claiming the kitty. So, I will be working with a TNR program now because I need help trapping this cat (it just won't let me near it). Then we’ll take it to the vet in the next few days. We’ll check to see if it's been chipped. If it hasn't, we’ll assess for TNR or fostering. Either way, this cat will get any treatment/vaccines/spay/neutering it needs. I am posting this update to do my due diligence reaching out JUST in case anyone on Ebenezer Rd recognizes this cat. Please share this post if you live in our neck of the woods! I do not intend to kidnap anyone’s cat. It seems feral, but you never know. It has a heated shelter and food until the vet can assess it.

update: he was apprehended early this morning.

Sharing for all NOVA and West Va friends. According to Police in all surrounding counties, he’s still at large.

One of the most amazing things to see here, is total darkness. No light pollution immediately evident(it’s there, just not obvious).

Tonight, a low fire, and the Milky Way can be seen. Imagine a week from now.

Today is dead/dying/diseased tree removal day. Sorry for the noise, neighbors! Lots of trimming around power/phone lines (#winteriscoming) and removal of limbs touching the cabin (stink bugs arrive soon). We waited until nesting season for birds was over or ending!

Have you heard the story about Benjamin Franklin and his preference for turkeys over bald eagles? Well, we enjoy seeing both species out here! But here are some photos of a turkey in our yard. Happy July 4th!

Happy Winter Solstice and Yule everyone! May your evening be full of warmth and light on the longest night of the year :)

Winter officially begins tonight at 11:48pm EST!

Astronomers define the winter solstice by the time the northern hemisphere is at its greatest tilt away from the sun, leading to the shortest day and longest night of the year.

'Solstice' is derived from the Latin 'solstitium', which means 'Sun standing'. Early astronomers believed the sun rotated around the Earth and noted that around this time every year, the sun appeared to pause in its southward movement and eventually begin to move northward. ~arh

Log Cabin Day

Today is Log Cabin Day! Of course, that's every day here. But yay for log cabins!!

Log Cabin Day encourages us to step away from a world of computers, electric lighting, and even indoor plumbing to embrace and experience a simpler existence.

Our fridge is full of eggs again, and we're looking for buyers. They are now $5 a dozen and $3 a half dozen due to increased costs in feed and protecting them from predators. No deliveries (except for people we see at work). Message Lesley or Tro if you're interested.
