You are always growing. Physically, emotionally, spiritually, intellectually—however you are progressing, it is enough. — This little chickie baby who needs a name Here’s What’s Happening At Good Spirits Farm The new chicks are out of my bathtub and out into the grass. Not only does this mean my bedroom no longer smells like the rear end of a chicken, but: I get to watch the joy of chicks experience grass for the first time. It’s as tall as they are and full of exciting things to peck at.
Absolutely in for NetChicks. And yay for Veli watching out for all the farm creatures, including the farmer :)
If you like Mary Oliver, you might also enjoy @maryoliversdrunkcousin on Instagram—she has really beautiful poetry, too.
Also, some name ideas. Taylor Flufft? Cardi Beak? Meghan Thee StalliHen? Beakyonce? (I will see myself out.)
This was a wonderful read. Like salve on my soul to help with today’s stresses.
Veli is such a pretty pup! Such soulful eyes and it looks like she knows stuff.
I’d actually prefer ChickFlix. Love me some non human drama!
that mcsweeney's piece is perfection (like your blog <3). "With Actual Dirt, Because Soil Is a Blessing" lol
Chick name: Hope. If you don't already have one.
Your relationship with your animals brings me to tears sometimes. It's so lovely. I have no doubt Veli is in tune with you and knows. My dogs have been amazing, especially when I'm needy. It makes me appreciate more when they're needy.
We've been watching NetChicks too. It's often MUCH more engaging than the stuff on the screen.
Veil’s like “alright someone’s got mom’s back”
I enjoyed this update, watching the chicken’s antics sounds like my kind of tv. When I saw the pic of the nameless chicken, I thought of the name poppy 💓
Loved the Mary Oliver's Garden selection.
