Romy and Michele
arrived today! Poor little darlings... Their
feathers could use some improvement and they could
stand to put on a little weight, but we'll take care
of all of that soon enough.
They see the other
ducks in the pens in the distance and REALLY want to
join them. Soon girls... Soon...
Every time it
pours, I pray that the rain will refill our
neighbor's pond and come down to us, but it is just
coming so slowly. I hate that our ducks have to swim
in kiddie pools instead of their lovely ponds. Only
the big Courtyard pond is usable.
I have been
lugging buckets of water to all of the pens since
July and the thought of hitting freezing weather and
going straight into lugging buckets for the winter
months without any break in between simply exhausts
me. Good thing ducks and geese are cute and keep me
inspired... still, a break would be nice...
