Watching 3 of my young Muscovy ducks who just couldn't wait for me to rinse, move and refill the stock tank which I'd opened the valve on so it would drain while I did other field chores. They just had to jump into the tank and play in the two inches of water that don't drain out! Of course, once I'd filled it, the geese chased the ducks off so they got first swim - the splashing was impressive!

I love hearing the noises of the countryside from our terrace. Birds, deer, more birds, frogs...

Waking up to this.

I've been struggling with my sleep. Paul gets up earlier than I do and makes our coffee.

The nights/mornings are cooler, and he knows I like my coffee hot. So he turned on his steampunk lamp (with an incandescent bulb of course!) to keep it warm for me.

Ahhhh! Sweet!

I enjoy how a tractor can have a smaller turning radius than a van. I think its nice to be able to simply turn around a tractor, instead of doing three-point turns in a van. (context: I was trying to haul small buckets of sand from Arrakis by loading them into a van, and then, I used a tractor!)
