Oh, and I think one of our chickens is egg bound. Treatment: hot bath. Middle of winter. Snowing. Which means heat lamp and box, and possibly placed indoors. More. Animals. Indoors. What a fiasco,...

It's been snowing here, solid since 8am. Wet snow, so it's not accumulating as fast as the snowfall would suggest. Day home from work, as my daughter and her day have a stomach bug. Plus...

I forgot to mention-- we didn't march because of a family gathering, but the girls and I had some amazing discussions about it and the issues around it. I love when we can be like adults together!
