A couple of years ago, one daughter and her family moved to a small farm in Franklin, Tennessee. It is halfway between Rockport and Houston, so it’s a perfect overnight stop on the third night of travel
Now, I’m not sure I’m a farm girl, but it is fun to take in all the activity in the barnyard. How all those two and four legged critters know when its feeding time is beyond me, but when they see the girls step inside the gate, a mad rush ensues. What is really funny is that the different species hang with their own giving real meaning to the saying “Birds of a feather flock together”.
The same is true of the sheep. They stay close to one another
and follow their shepherds wherever they go.
I couldn’t get enough of the sheep. They are so affectionate with each other,
and their sweet faces would steal anyone’s heart.
I’m told we are having farm raised turkey for Thanksgiving,
and it looks to me like they may be hatching a plan to avoid the chopping block.
They may have a hard time outrunning this gal
which means Thanksgiving dinner will be the one that doesn’t get away.
All this activity is a bit much for Lucy who looks down on it from her high perch.
As for Aslan, he’s on the outside looking in wanting to be part of the action. With his energy that would cause total chaos!
It’s tempting to linger to take in the natural beauty of the farm, but hit the road we must.
As we sneak down the stairs hoping to leave quietly, we find Super Daughter in the kitchen scrambling up some farm fresh eggs. Now, that is a loving and delightful surprise.
Speaking of eggs, the chickens are the girls’ responsibility. Eggs are plentiful, and the girls have built a customer base for all the extras. Pretty enterprising, wouldn’t you say?
Until next time through, that’s it for barnyard happenings. There’s no telling what changes will occur there between now and then.
