The ducks are in solitary confinement. For the past 2 weeks I have been letting them, the geese, chickens, and the guineas free roam during the day. They have been staying on the property eating bugs,
Finishing off what was left of my gardens and just enjoying being free. Well today Daffy, Donald and Sally decided to go off on a adventure. They went to one of my neighbors and went swimming in her pond. Thank goodness they didn't tear anything up or eat her fish. They just enjoyed swimming in her pond as she had her fountain going. So now they are in big trouble. They have to stay in the pen and swim in their own pond (which by the way is bigger, just doesn't have a fountain) while the geese and chickens enjoy being free. William will be home tomorrow and we are going to start work on fencing in all of the property so all the animals can roam around and not get the bright ideal of going on a adventure. Sally is very upset she can't get out but Daffy and Donald are taking a bath. Daisy was the smart duck. She stayed home when they decided to sneak off. She could care less if she gets out of the pen or not just as long as she gets food.
I got 2 loads of laundry done in my trusty washtubs. They smell so fresh and clean after hanging on the clothesline all day. Got a lot of outside things done, some housework and even had time to go thrift storing. I got a lap quilt, cute little pillow, basket, couple of books, 2 pair of name brand jeans, a vintage cream pitcher and a baby gate (to use with the cats and chickens) and only spent $7.00. Tomorrow will be time to rake the pens and plan a nice meal for William.Hope your day has been filled with blessings!
