What a perfect day out there today! It's the nicest day in 2009 we've had yet.
Hoosiers go a little nuts when we have sunshine and a temp of 58. They dig out their summer wardrobe, and spend the day outside. I did a little raking in the flower beds, and with much joy, saw the tender, pale green tips of corn lilies, hollyhocks, tansy and tulips, hiding under the leaves.
Of course, a senior cup of coffee was in order, and the corgis wanted to have their lookey-loo at the various farm animals.
We went to see the ponies who were happily lying on the ground, on their sides, sunning. The horses did not want to rouse themselves just because the corgi kids came calling, so they'd snort and nicker in repose. It was laughable.
We moved on to the next farm on our daily jaunt, and found that farmer guy had brought back the flock of white faced sheep, and opened the door to the hen house! Oh what fun! The sheep, always in flock mentality, stared across the field wondering what the joyful yips were all about coming out of the Malibu.
The little lady hens were running in circles and pecking at the ground, while rooster guy slowly strutted his stuff in the sunshine, bleaching out his feathers I guess. When they stretched their wings out and flapped, it caught the corgis eye.
Sunshine makes everything, and everybody feel good....please, nice Mother Nature lady....may we have more?
