Feeling Chipper

Donkeys, as well as turkeys, have an eye for beauty.

Daphne and Chloe stood facing this sunrise as they ate their breakfast yesterday morning.

It's hard not to look at the day with much anticipation
after seeing a sunrise like this!

When I went into the barn, I heard TomTom mumbling.
Before I could grab my camera, I saw Lucille standing in TomTom's bed...
right beside him.... TomTom with his back to her.

I am pretty sure he was muttering, "Chickens make very strange bedfellows!"

Luckily the day proceeded with perfect weather.
I had much on my list to accomplish.
When morning chores were finished, I took the gator and began to load it with cut wood.

34 trees makes for a whole lot of firewood.
And that firewood needed to be stacked.

Although I was working alone...
you can see that I am never every entirely alone.

There is always a friend or two willing to keep me company.

"I'm staying up here," uttered Bobby.  "I hope she doesn't expect any help!"

"Not from shady character,"  I replied.

Here is what was next on my chore list...

I spent the entire day working outdoors.
By the end of the day...
bed never looked any better!
