some pictures and words...

This picture is actually from summer.

  Last night we loaded our chickens up to take them to be butchered.  My job was to get in the pens and shoo them towards the opening for my dad to swoop them up and put them in cages.  It was a workout, because I was crouched down and trying to walk... not only was it hard, but I probably looked like a duck waddling.

The last three pictures were taken this morning.  I woke up, looked out the window, and saw frost everywhere.  I knew that I had to get some pictures of it, so I braced myself and ran out in the 40 degree weather wearing shorts and a tee shirt.  Yes, it was cold, very cold... but it was worth it.
In a couple of hours I'm going to be taking these girls portraits!  Eeks!

Have a lovely day!

  2. Awwww, it sounds really harsh... your chickens to be butchered. But anyway, the photos are lovely, I absolutely love the frost, I can't wait for winter for this reason, also winter can usually be a little bland here. Let's hope for lots of snow.
