Tahkira Angelsun Memoirs

Dedicated to the Memory of Geisha
(Tahkira Angelsun Memoirs).
She was Brave and Strong and True,
And was SO very much more than those

Last Three Days.

This poem is an appeal to extend respect and courtesy to those who have lost a beloved canine member of their family.

“At the temple there is a poem called “Loss” carved into the stone. It has three words, but the poet has scratched them out. You cannot read loss, only feel it.” Memoirs of a Geisha

First Hatch–The Chickens @ Angelsun

We decided to add some chickens to our family this year and thought that the Silkies would be a lovely addition for their eggs.  Unfortunately, we were unable to find anyone in the area with this breed so had them shipped in.

So far, all seems to be going well and all of the eggs except 4 showed development.  Below is a video with 3 of the eggs being candled at day 10.

Like many expectant mothers; I decided to prepare the nursery and do some crocheting.  I was inspired to make this set of crocheted Silkie and Showgirl Chickens.  The PDF pattern is for sale in my Etsy shop at: http://www.etsy.com/listing/181797191/muffy-fluffy-the-silkie-and-showgirl
