Linking up to Like Mother, Like Daughter to share some pretty, happy, funny and real times...
Although we are only in our second week of Lent, we are experiencing some 'Easter' type phenomenon. Small and beautiful miracles. We have had a little rain, but we are still in need of much more rain. Nevertheless, things continue to grow around here in sunny California.

...and then, after some days, became these beautiful butterflies.
Once their wings dried, they were ready to be set free...

For years we have talked about raising chickens. Having fresh eggs for a morning omelet or to bake some delicious fresh bread just sounds so wonderful to me.
But I put it off for years, because with chickens, come work. And clean up. And mess. And...cute little adorable fluffy chick chicks...that chirp so sweetly. And...they like to fall asleep in the palm of your hand.
After only a few days, these cute little creatures have shown exponential growth. Already feathers have formed on their wings. Amazing!
They have a heat lamp that stays on 24/7 and they eat lots of chick feed and drink lots of fresh water and need to have their bedding changed frequently, too.
They know Little Lamb and immediately start to chirp when she comes around...they are very friendly and like to be held. (I'm not sure if this is a good thing, or a bad thing, but either way - I have one happy little girl).
