Duck Fun

Mondays.

Love the foot up in the air!
When I was a working girl,
or should I say a working outside the home girl,
I didn't like Mondays.
Getting up in the morning,
going to a job that I didn't much care for, blech...
I'm sure y'all know the drill.


Now that I'm a full-time housewife/farm girl,
and my job is that of taking care of my husband, home and farm
I don't mind Mondays at all.


In fact,
I rather enjoy Mondays.


It's a day of laundry and cleaning.
Cleaning both inside the house and out.
By out, I mean the front porch, the chicken coop, duck pool, etc.


I enjoy doing these things as it "restores order to my home"
(to quote Jayme of Tales from the Coop Keeper)
and it's very rewarding work.


My paycheck?
watching others enjoy the fruits of my labor (make sure your sound is on!)....


Totally worth the effort!

The ducks were so excited about their clean pool that they didn't even wait for it to be finished filling up!  They kept peeking over the edge and watching it fill up.  As soon as it was three fourths full they were in it splashing, diving, floating, swimming, wings flapping, etc.  I just had to capture some of it on video to show you how excited they were.  (Note to self:  I need a larger SD card for my camera to hopefully catch some longer clips at one time rather than several small clips.)

Did you hear the hen in the background?
Yup, she just laid an egg and is letting everyone know how proud she is!

Speaking of eggs...  11 farm fresh eggs today.

Happy Monday y'all!  I hope it was a good one.

Till next time,
