Peaches ate too much and almost had a Winnie-the-Pooh-stuck-in-Rabbit's-hole moment. Peaches calmly wriggled herself out, but since she and the other heifers are gaining 2.5 pounds a day, their burrowing days are numbered.

Some neighbor birds nested in a privet only a few yards from the house. How many times did I pass within inches of the structure, totally oblivious to all the setting, hatching, feeding, and fledging drama within?

I need to update my profile picture (I think it's six years old) but am camera avoidant. Nevertheless, while doing yesterday evening's chores, I thought I'd take a selfie with my best barnyard pal, Blueberry. I'd spent most of the day cleaning and shoveling gravel, but I hoped that December's periwinkle-and-tangerine light waves would be merciful.
Nope. All they did was highlight my need for soap, makeup, makeover, and airbrush. Fortunately, the critters were more photogenic!
Blueberry and company, sundown
