The Animal's Rule The Homestead

I have been going out in the early afternoons and letting the animals out to roam around the property. They have now decided its an everyday event and have even decided what time of day they think they should go out. Miss Diva is waiting with Ethel on her back for me to open the door and let them out.

Here are the rest of the ladies and gents waiting to get out.

Miss Diva is even being nice and letting the hens go first.

They had a nice long afternoon of scratching around. They even scratched all the mulch I put in the flower beds for the winter. Miss Diva followed me around and when I came inside she decided to watch William work. She did try to push the back door open with her head. All she accomplished was a dirty glass door. Nice sunny day here today. Where is winter?

I just love that you have a screen door on your chicken pen! That is so sweetly unique and country perfect!
Love all your tales of the "zoo" have got the most personable animals any where! (and you have delicously spoiled them all!)

I think it's so cute the way they're all waiting at their door to get out! And Miss Diva certainly is very polite to let them go out first:-)

I always love reading about your special animals. They are wonderful and so spoiled but animals need to be spoiled. God put them here for us to take care of and so then spoiling just comes naturally!! THanks Peggy. Sandy

Winter is surely not here Peggy. The days are getting hotter and hotter. The storms are rolling in every other day or so with little rain I should add. The dams are still extremely low but with prayer, faith will fill them soon. My cat 'Floyd' has a nasty gash on his cheek and takes up my spare time with bathing and dressing the wound. Jack the dog says 'woof' to Miss Diva, and thanks to her soap, his hide is nearly clear of the horrible rash. The birds sit and watch me run around all day hoping for some fruit and vege to be popped into their cage... and a crust or too. The garden is looking poorly but we must think of those farmers who are on water rashens... oh dear, I will wash for 1 minute less tomorrow, and savour the tap water. I am so pleased everything is beautiful on your side of the world Peggy for you. Much love, Nicole xox.

Winter can bide its sweet time somewhere else as far as I am concerned. Your Miss Diva sure has a personality all her own!
She seems to make life rather interesting for you all!

Have a great week!
