Books and Birds...

It is a beautiful drizzly day. The snow has finally melted off the ground and I am starting to believe that spring may actually be around the corner. This month I have had my head buried in books and my hands stained by paint. I have started flats upon flats of flower seeds and they are laying next to my husbands vegetables nice and warm under the lights.  Our little chickens now have combs and the poor momma has to sit on top of her water to get away from the chicks trying to fly onto her back.

The days seem long with work, childrens sports, tending and art....I find myself grasping for daylight at the end of the day to accomplish things. I am teaching 2 art classes starting next month at our community center and am getting really excited. Our newspaper came over to interview me and take some photos for a write up on the classes. I can't wait and I hope all the seats fill up quickly.

Some of the books I have been reading this month.....
Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
Intertwined by Gena Showalter
Black Hills by Nora Roberts
You Suck: A Love Story & Bloodsucking Fiends: A Love Story by Christopher Moore
I am just starting Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

Oh, what darling chickie-babies! I can see everyone loves them!

I should read a book or two and widen my horizons as you are!

Wow - you sure keep yourself hopping! Congrats on the newspaper interview!

The chicks are so sweet - I miss having chickens.

Happy to hear your snow has melted too - cheers to Spring!

Yes, A *busy chick!* I could not agree more. It all sounds like good stuff, though. Oh those chicks! Poor little mama. I was beginning to wonder if our own chicken mama wouldn't like a moment's rest.

Chicks are growing so fast. They are still cute.
You sound like a busy little bee. Have fun at the art class. Wish I could be there. I have been offered an opportunity to do a class on making Artist Trading Cards at the community college . I need to think about this one. 100.00 per class and I supply all the materials?? Humm I need to figure this out before I do it.

cute chicks! Those books sound good!

You sound crazy busy!!! Both you and Val P.make me wish I was as active and talented as you both are. Do you ladies ever sleep? Really though, congratulations on the art classes and newspaper interview. I can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve for the classes. I wish I lived closer, as I'd camp out on your doorstep to await art lessons, canning/gardening lessons and most of all I'd want lessons in wood burning gourds.

These photos of your chickens bring back wonderful memories of my visits with my grandmother. She had fryers, and layers and grandchildren all wanting to take home a little biddie.

I hope your classes will bring you as much fun as the students will have. I think this would be very esxciting.

AWE!! I loved having baby chicks when I was younger. We lived pretty much on a farm. Wish I could have them now.. but My husband and I live in a apartment. Maybe someday though.
