This pepper caught my eye last night because it's literally ripening from the bottom up and there's a clear line between ripe and not ripe. Kinda cool!
No news on the house yet. We're now off contract because the amendment expired last Friday, but I've been assured that the lender is working furiously to resolve the issues. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Patience, however, is not one of my virtues.
Not that it's been hard to wait with all that tasty pig in the refrigerator. We've put off the bacon-making to this weekend when it will be really nice outside. But, in the meantime, we've been pigging out (*snicker*) on pork chops. Nom nom nom!
Last night, I let the chooks out for some recess time in the garden while I changed their water and filled their food. J. likes to call this their "ultra recess". Henrietta decided to sneak in the big coop at dusk while no one else was looking. I considered leaving her in there overnight, but it wasn't long before one of the other Austrolorps noticed her and started trying to peck her. Bless her heart! She wants so badly to be part of the flock and let me know she wasn't happy that I plucked her off the roost and put her back in her own enclosure. But I'd rather she be angry with me than pecked to death.
What's up in your neck of the woods?
