What Cows Do Best

6 X 8 Ink on index $25

There's not much grass left in the pasture for this kind of activity. No rain means no grass...and no flowers for the bees. I am feeding them a quart of 50% sugar water a day - and they'd take more. The bees are NOT in a good mood, either. When I removed the empty sugar water jar last night at sundown, they came after me and I got stung on the hand. Now half my right hand is swollen and itchy - not good. Guess I'd better start walking more cautiously around them!
The chickens are cutting back on their laying, too - but good old Moe, the naked-neck chicken, is uglier than ever and still laying the biggest eggs every day. Today's Sunday school lesson for my teenagers was about God not seeing the same way people see. People look at the outside of a person, but the Lord looks at the heart.
Same with Moe - she would end up last place in a chicken beauty pageant - heck, they may not even let her in!!!! But she is the best layer AND the best at getting after the grasshoppers. AND she survived the great coyote massacre of 2010. As far as I am concerned, she is perfect.
1 Samuel 16:7
But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”

Hi, Debbie - I am glad I stopped by - I really enjoy reading your blog. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the line drawings - they are so lively and beautifully done! By the way, I think your naked neck chicken is just gorgeous!
