Today our family received a second postcard from Moxie. We were excited to read that he has finished learning his right and left turns and is now on to crossing the street safely in traffic. It's been 2.5 moths since we sent our boy off to guide dog college and each Friday that goes by without a phone call from GDA I have a mini celebration. We continue to keep our fingers crossed that in only a few more months we may see Moxie cross that graduation stage with a recipient.
In other news our Gertrude (Australorp) has made a good recovery from her illness. It turns out that she was merely molting (18 month molt) and is already looking much better as her new feathers come in. As is typical with molting she has lost weight and stopped laying. Hopefully she feels back to her old self soon and gets back to work.
Tomorrow we begin more work in the garden. I have eagerly planned six or seven projects which I don't plan to divest to Mr. Rural until after morning coffee. Shhh! It should be a productive weekend for our little homestead!
