Welcome back! Sorry I haven’t written in awhile but I’ve been busy migrating the blog over to WordPress from Blogger.
On top of that we’ve been really busy. It’s been a week since Sedona came to her new home. There is definitely an adjustment period and it hasn’t settled down yet. I think her first friend will probably be Daisy, though that hasn’t quite been figured out yet. Of the two, Daisy is definitely the less aggressive and they’ve been seen sniffing each other.
In the meantime Bella and Daisy are sporting tennis balls duct taped to their horns. Bella is clearly unhappy about Sedona so we want to make sure she doesn’t really hurt her.
In other news, we have a broody turkey hen. On Thursday Duke decided it was time to sit on her clutch. She only has 6 eggs to set on, but she probably laid over a dozen over time. The first few sat for so long that we ended up tossing them (she took a rather long break in her egg laying). Then Riley found them and he LOVES turkey eggs. We finally had to make the rule that the dogs do not go out into the backyard unsupervised with Turkey Town open. Otherwise they eat all the feed and the eggs. I don’t know what it is about turkey food that they love so much?
It’s Christmas eve and every year my family would have a crab feed for dinner. It’s been a family tradition for me for as long as I can remember. It was even a tradition for my mom when she was growing up. I love crab and it used to be the only time of year I got to have it. Of course now that I’m older I can buy it other times, but generally we don’t very often because it really is a treat. Unfortunately there aren’t many of us around anymore. My mom now lives in Ohio and my other relatives have moved further away. So this year it will just be my cousin, Mo, who wouldn’t miss crab for anything, Tom, Junior, and our friend Scott. As it turns out, Scott has crab pots so this year we’ll be hopefully getting very fresh – like still alive – crab. He took Tom and Junior this morning to go crabbing. I hope they get a good haul.
