Chickens in the ‘Hood

chicken coop in Llano Quemado

Every time we see this, it makes us feel so good! I wonder why?

Went for a four-mile hike in the neighborhood yesterday, since the pickup is still buried in the snowy driveway and I can’t get to the wilderness. It turns out that the two-mile turnaround point is completely out of town, however—all the way past Talpa on Rt. 518!—so I guess I made it, anyway. Just a few hundred yards from where we live, I came across our favorite chicken coop. There are a couple or three turkeys in there, too (closeup coming next). These folks’ woodpiles put mine to shame, you’ll notice. And off to the right, where you can’t see, is an acequia that runs most of the year. That’s why the willow (orange branches) is so happy.

    We were so lucky to visit Taos again on December 30. Gorged ourselves on chile rellenos at Doc Martin’s and escaped before the most recent storm blew in. Now my soul is filled again!

      Did you know the head chef’s first name is Zippy? Or did I make that up?!?

    good to know you didn’t break a sweat with the move — perhaps the zero degree weather helped on that level — as always, looking forward to your posts — das

      The zero degree weather helps with focusing on staying alive!
