I'm recovering from having the flu the last 2 weeks. It's been a while since I was that sick.
I'm thinking about how I need to go clean the chicken coop, and I'm procrastinating. It's cozy and warm in the house. I eat an orange, trying to waste time, not wanting to go out to work.
It's a little foggy outside - we are having unseasonably warm weather. It's supposed to be in the upper 60's, maybe even 70's today. I looked out my kitchen window and saw these scenarios. I have to smile. The fog makes everything look like a muted painted picture.
At first my attention was directed to a pilated woodpecker. I went to get the camera and returned to the kitchen window. I missed the woodpecker, but saw Benjamin the farm cat and the guineas. They all get along well, the guineas don't mind Benji.
Benji was hunting mice and squirrels when the guineas showed up in the yard. He went and greeted them, then went off to continue his farm cat duties.
Benji has a very thick coat for winter, as he's an outdoor only cat. He wouldn't have it any other way.
It's going to be a great week. Hope you take a moment to see how beautiful life is and enjoy it.
Now I'm going to get to work on cleaning that chicken coop...
