This morning as
Dad left for school,

we stepped out onto the porch
and looked around.

The cattle are grazing
on this wonderful
rainy Fall day.

The leaves are getting
more colorful every day.

The blue birds have left
our lone little birdhouse.

Ruairi has already
been bathed and dried.

So has Piper.

We girls wait in apprehension,
because we know we'll be next.

And then after everyone is
bathed and dried,
the stripping and clipping will start.

And it will look like Mom has
been plucking chickens
in our living room.

Lucky Ivy -
she's just out
playing in the rain.

Hey, I skinned my chin last night. Boy did it ever bleed. Lots. They were really worried.

I just can't seem to stay out of trouble!!!!!

Wyatt said...

Your trees are sooo colorful. We don't get chilly enough in the fall for that kind of color :(

Did you all go out in the mud, after your grooming? You have to get the clean stink rubbed off...heehee

It's so beautiful there Lynn!! We are just starting to see some real color here, and some real shedding too!! Ruairi looks so handsome and I'll bet when Todd is all grown up, right down to the collars, you won't be able to tell the two apart!

Oh I think I would like to be outside with Ivy on one of your rainy Fall days, romping around enjoying the beautiful colours and not being stripped and clipped!

Oh, how mom misses the beautiful fall colors. We dont get anywhere near the brilliant colors here.

Sorry about those bangs but we bet you will all look so good once you are done.

Your home is SOOO beautiful!!!!! That's just the kind of place where Darcy would love to play. Speaking of... I think she is needing a little stripping and clipping herself. Are you interested in another chicken to pluck?? :)

I hope you have a beautiful day!
