Our ducks, going after mealworm treats this afternoon. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s Flock Friday for a surprise revelation about them! Yes, I’m going to make you wait to next year. 🦆


Our pond is partially frozen this morning; the first time this season. It’ll probably melt in a few hours, once the temperature is above freezing. Here’s a time-lapse GIF of the ducks swimming in the non-frozen part. ❄️🦆

And so it begins. Today we are doing our 17th annual The Lord of the Rings movie marathon, where we watch 12 hours of all three extended editions of the movies. Yes, I really said seventeenth. 🍿
