Backyard Gardening

Body
It was a wonderful weekend for starting the clean-up of the yard and to get completely distracted from cleaning up the yard, if you know what I mean. One minute you are completely absorbed in trimming up some shrubs and then the next thing you know, the chickens have done the cutest thing and 30 minutes have gone by while you soak up the sun and marvel in their chicken ability to dig in the dirt. The digging in the dirt really isn’t that remarkable, but it is a good excuse to just sit in the sun and enjoy 74 degree weather the first week in February.
