There is a lot of Misc. to talk about right now! The first thing off the miscellaneous pile is the removal of a Facebook “Like” button at the top of the page, and the addition of a couple of badges along the side. One of those badges takes you to The Prospering Peasant’s Facebook page. Go on an”Like” that page because an update will post every time I put a blog post up here! This is the best way to keep up with The Prospering Peasant if you are on Facebook! I also added a badge for my Photography site on Facebook! Go like it too, especially if you are in the Moapa Valley area of Nevada, or close to it in Southern Utah!
The next bit worth a mention is that the chicken egg production is starting to pick up again. The chickens have been so stressed in the 100+ heat that they all but completely stopped laying eggs all summer long! This is definitely a reason not to love the heat of the desert!
This morning my three year old daughter came out in the back yard with me for a little walk. She is petrified of the New Hampshire Red Rooster because he often tries to act like a Rooster towards her! We have been teaching her to roar at him and scare him. But he still does to her like he does to the hens, usually starting with a little dance in a circle around her, just like the hens. So I put my darling baby on my shoulders, and we chased the Rooster across the yard. When he finally slowed down, I did a dance in a circle around him, and he ducked way low, and I think he knew what was going on, because for the first time ever, he launched an attack at me! He leapt up at my leg, but only got me just below the knee, to no effect, and then he ran off.
Tonight I am going to take one of the boys and we are going to go learn how to make Mozzarella cheese! This is an exciting prospect that I really look forward to sharing with you! Details to follow!
