We contemplate what brought us joy,
And we think of our loved ones and our friends.
We reflect upon who really counts,
As the fresh and bright new year arrives.

|The Silkie Gang|
|Pretty birds, pretty birds|
With the arrival of 14 new chickens, we knew we had to house them. We ordered a chicken chalet, which was scheduled to be delivered this week but now has been pushed back because of the weather. The chalet is a link to spring when I’ll paint it, name it and plant flowers around it.

Thanks for walking around the farm and taking in our outside holiday decorations. We will share the inside with you on our next post. Until then, enjoy decking the halls, baking, shopping and taking in the reason for this wonderful season.
