This morning I was out hanging clothes on the line, and heard the familiar cackle that a chicken makes after she has laid an egg. It is something I am very used to hearing. But this morning it was odd, because it sounded closer. Hmmmmm? I decided to go investigate. Sure enough, it was closer alright. Instead of laying their eggs in the chicken coop, using one of the two boxes I have placed in there for their use, I found Big Red (which seems to now be her appointed name) one of my new chickens from my friend Elaine , sitting snug as a bug in a bed of leaves beneath a corner hibiscus bush in the corner of the backyard by the garage. I went in to get my camera to take a picture.
And the only place for our wall until that holds the telly is on a wall that does not work well for viewing the fireplace in the winter months. We love to have our roaring fires, and so for the past few years, I have been moving the big easy chair over to the fireplace and it has turned into the favorite place to sit.
Tonight is the night that we light The Great Pumpkin! Always exciting to see! And I leave you with a picture from last year. I have not made my Fall wagon up just yet.
