i'm expecting

...a couple of visitors here tomorrow. We are all so very excited. I get to meet a wonderful friend that I have gotten to know only online. This amazing lady is driving up with her friend and neighbor to deliver her 14 ducks and 4 geese to me. I am honored that she has trusted me to care for her flock.

There should be plenty of action going on tomorrow! I am visualizing 3 brunette grown women playing duck, duck, goose! Oh, my neighbor Shirl will have a great show tomorrow. I never really let him down.

I am cooking meatballs in homegrown sauce, over pasta, fresh artisan bread, and some roasted red pepper and herb goat's milk cheese for my weary travelers (the humans, not the flocks.) Peas will be served to the flocks. We have a temporary pen for those who might have adjustment issues. But I am thinking positively. We will all get along just fine.

I will be blogging about their visit and all about those new ducks and geese. I hope they make friends with my gang. They have never seen piglets or a donkey or an Izzy before!

Safe travels my friend, see you for lunch on the green door.



  1. I'm sure your visitors will be impressed with your lovely corner of the world, Crow.
