She'll sleep wherever she wants

So, I've had this blog thing set up for a couple weeks now, but I've been thinking about doing one for quite a while. I haven't mentioned it because I didn't even have a post up and wasn't sure if I'd ever even get one up. Since I am a bit of a perfectionist (understatement), I have a tendency to overanalyze everything I write, emails, facebook updates, you name it. Knowing that, I figured it'd take me forty forevers to even write one post. My husband makes fun of this little quirk and rightly so. I annoy myself sometimes. I've been comtemplating what my first post should even be about...the new farm, the critters, the internal combustion engine, the price of tea in China. I dunno. My inspiration came the other night when I went to the chicken coop to put the girls to bed. I got so tickled I ran back inside to grab my camera. Look at this goofy thing:




This is Kimmy, one of my Americana hens. She is roosting on the cord to the coop light, and I wonder why the light was on the floor the other day. No, the light wasn't on then or in this pic so don't get excited.






I told her to quit being a princess and to get down and roost with the other girls. She told me I was interupting her beauty sleep and to get outta her face. I get no respect 'round here.


If you've tolerated me thus far, then stay tuned. I'll be putting up some progress pics of the work we've been doing at the new farm soon.
