I don’t know about anyone else, but here in Kentucky it’s cold and windy, and today we had gigantic snow flakes. I actually looked down the way at my little chicken coop and was feeling sort of sorry for my three girls, Gertrude, Hilda & Wanda. It’s been quite some time since they’ve been allowed to venture out due to the weather. They have a nice heater inside to keep them warm, but they surely have to get cabin fever like people do. Don’t they? I’ve had a major dose of it myself lately…that’s when I go bake something in the kitchen and pretend it’s Spring outside. It’s funny…when it’s 90 degrees in the heat of Summer, I wish it was Fall. Now it’s Winter and I wish it was Spring. Well anyhow, I took a walk down to check on the girls…
Gertrude was sitting by herself alone in the corner…and I asked her what was on her mind….She let out a small cackle and said she had just been dreaming about Spring and Summer when she’s allowed to roam the yard, dig in the mulch beds and catch bugs. I understand chicken language, ya know…I grew up on a farm, and played with the chickens a lot, cause my evil twin wouldn’t play with me. Anyway…I told Gertrude I understood….I’ve been dreaming about warm weather too….and fixing the mulch that she digs up.
I gave Gertrude some cracked corn, patted her on the head and told her to go back to sleep and dream away….
Then I went back to the house, sat down at my kitchen table and started letting my mind wander to blooming trees, butterflies and flowers… I’m still dreaming…don’t wake me!!!
Still dreaming……don’t wake me…..
