holiday chickens

I spent the afternoon freezing my buns off at a tree farm, where the 4-H club had been asked to bring animals for a petting zoo. The farmer gives the club a small donation in exchange, so it's not all livestock altruism, but it is awfully cold. So cold that my fingers haven't quite yet recovered, and this short post will have to do.

I think Christmas chickens are appropriate now that it's after Thanksgiving.


  1. I am sure the chickens rose to the occasion! Too bad you couldn't warm your fingers in their feathers!

  2. I'm not sure why that event is always on the coldest day of the year. Couldn't be today when it is almost 50 degrees!

  3. Yes, it was most definitely freezing!...At least you were still able to get some knitting done :-)
