2. We're still recovering from the flu bug that decided to hitch a ride home with us from Alaska. It's a doozy; we've both been out of commission all week. Our friends, that traveled with us, are suffering as well.

I spent most of today in my garden, convalescing. My mom always told us kids to go outside and lay in the sun when we were sick; the fresh air and vitamin D would help us heal. I did some coloring, and thought about garden projects; although, I had no energy to do any of them.
3. The chick continues to thrive. It is interesting to me how strong this chick is; how fat and fluffy and active. Mother Nature (and Mama Hen) do a much better job of raising chicks than we do with our brooders and warming lights and hovering care.
|The chick doesn't even look like a chick anymore, right?|
4. Our chickens love canteloupe. They don't share with the chick.
5. Kersey is very busy at chore time. She watches us work from the front porch.
And sometimes she even moves to different spot on the porch, so she can see us better.
