Week 34 An owl week

Another week that has flown past.  Its been real windy the past couple of days; not the coldest in the world but the wind makes it worse. It is 34 degrees right now and I just got back in from letting the chickens out of their coop.

Tuesday when I opened it up I got a big surprise.  An owl flew out and the chickens all came running out scared to death and hid under the trees for a couple of hours.
Whats funny is Dave says he went in the coop to turn off the light and everything seemed normal.  They need 12 to 13 hours of light to lay well so I turn on the ligt when I collect the eggs in the late afternoon cause it gets dark so early now. Lol he didnt see the big owl in there and the only way it got in was flying through the coop door that evening.
I checked and not one dead chicken from the over night guest. Wonderful to say the least.

Our oldest son and family were up here over the weekend and the children injoyed sledding down the hill in the back yard and the hill comng down from the barn.

Our son Seth and his wife Jessie are expecting a new little one come May. Congrats to them.

I am 90% done writing the sequel to After The Dying Time, that feels good. I keep getting asked from our daughter Christine and a couple of the grandkids and some of my friends to get it done so they can read it.

New skill:

How are you coming at learning a new skill? Make sure you pick something new to learn. And when you have learned that go on to another. Don’t quit learning.

If you want to take up knitting or crochet and you have the Internet there are some very good sites that have videos of how to do it; knitpicks is very good.
Even youtube has them.
