Look what is going on in our hen house!
We have not one...
but three broody hens!!
I am so excited. I forsee oodles of fuzzy little puffballs marching around our yard in the near future. :)
Except...look is still lingering...
I don't think chickies like snow. I guess we'll just have to see. We've never had chicks hatch before.
The hens weren't the only ones around here who were feeling broody today. I was broody (or should I say moody) too. I spent the whole day, it seems, waiting for Nadia (my 1 year old) to go down for a nap. Do you ever have days like that?
I had a project I needed/wanted to work on and I just couldn't seem to get to it. Nadia is the most darling girl...but oh so busy. She can climb up on chairs now, and a whole new world has opened up to her. I found her on the chair beside my sewing machine, reaching for my sewing scissors and I knew something had to give...and that somONE was me.
So Nadia, Trinity (my four year old) and I got bundled up (it's still a little chilly up here in the Great White North) and went for a walk. When all else fails...a good dose of fresh air and sunshine is sure to chase away the "broody blues".
We walked and talked, and each munched on a nice crunchy apple...oh how I love that perfect, crunchy apple!
Things were looking up. The longer I spent outside...the more sane I felt...the more I stopped obsessing over that silly project, and I could feel everyone's "happiness factor" going up. After all, when momma's happy, everyone's happy, right?
And you know what? Later on, I did also find time to work on that much anticipated project, and got quite a bit done! Here's my progress on my 15 inch and 10 inch Waldorf dollies....
All that broody, moodiness for naught! :P
