I finally found dear Hubby’s Kodak digital camera and today after the chores were done I played with shutting off the auto mode and using different shudder speeds, filters etc. I had a lot of fun and wanted to share the pics. Of course there is no way I can begin to capture the beauty of this place but it gives you an idea. Also you will note most of the pictures I take are of the view I see each day of Mount Illiamna that is across Cook Inlet. I am still mesmerized by its beauty every time I look at it.
Off course no picture taking day would be complete without kids and critters!
Not perfect by far but much better than my phone! I look forward to taking many more as we begin seeing signs of spring. When that will be is any ones guess as it is currently 26 degrees and starting to snow.
I did take time to call the postal service in Anchorage today. I was worried over my chicks that are to arrive tomorrow and spoke to a very nice woman who assured me that the chicks were alive and well an headed here tomorrow in the CAB of the truck. She was horrified when she heard the entire story about what has transpired with the other chicks over the last 3 weeks. I also informed her about the very rude gentleman that I had the unfortunate call with at their customer service call center. She was appalled that anyone would behave so badly. I did take the opportunity though to tell her what awesome ladies we have in our local post office who work so hard to get things done in a timely manner.
Chicks should be here at 6:30 in the morning and yes I am excited! The 4 I have now that are 3 weeks old have become my little buddies and soon they will be going outside but not to the chicken tractor like any common chicken-nope they will be in their own little sheltered area (a large netting enclosure) so they stay close enough to visit and enjoy their morning coffee with me.
The brooder is working great, it has been a week now with no glitches. I will begin construction of an incubator in the next day or so and after I have it stabilized will be hatching chicks for resell and also some to fatten for butchering.
Work is steadily progressing on the bunny barns and I will be showing photos of those soon. Always work to be done on Two Moose Farm but I have to say that it is much fun.
