Billie is my senior German Short Hair Pointer who is turning 16 this week. I rescued her from a bad situation when she was 3 years old and she has been my faithful companion ever since. Morning is her favourite time! We make the rounds together to let the chickens out of their coop and feed the rabbits. Then we play the food game and go for a stroll to the lake; when we get back inside, it’s time for the rest of the household to wake up. For Billie and I, mornings are our special time and we cherish them.
Last Friday was an energy-filled evening on the opening night of “The Other-Side presents That Wall”at The Old School House Gallery on Cortes Island. Del Riveria floated around the room and outside while playing his vintage 1962 accordion, as more and more guests kept on walking through the door. It was quite overwhelming to say the least, and very delightful to watch people engaging with my art installation and jiving to the sound track. The enthusiastic comments and warm smiles made me feel like I accomplished my goal of inspiring viewers to think, to dream, and to feel something new or different, even if for just one evening. A friend even came bearing a gift that would only happen on Cortes Island – 3 new laying hens! (I bet you wondered why I chose that picture! And if you look closely, you will see Del and his accordion on the porch too.) Much to my surprise, the hens were well appreciated by everyone and have now made their forever home on my farm. What a great evening! Xoxo
Months ago we got our first chickens at 6 days old.We started with 11 little Chiclets(as I called them) So cute they were , we ended up with 3 beautiful hens Penny , Giselle ,and Elsa and the roosters were well given back on the trade for more hens and we well get them when the time comes.We love them , in fact the whole zoo loves the hens.Now I have never had chickens before but I have to say it’s been super fun and exciting.With no really high expectations as I do like to be surprised my goal was low and I told myself if we got 1 egg out of this extravaganza I would be thrilled.Well last nite we scored and got our first 9 eggs unexpectedly and once again the farm creates ART to my eyes.Thrilled to report this exciting news from our little farm xoxoxo wishing you all a great weekend.
