An Outing

I basically ignored Lucy during the past few months while Ben was home. Now he is gone and she seems so bored, so I decided to take her on a little outing tonight.

We set off down the road........

Oh gross....two of my least favorite things....a slug and Indian Celery!

 Then down a quiet, secluded gravel driveway....

To Olga's house, to see her charming chicken house.

Visiting with Olga is always fun, and her chicken house is truly one of the nicest ones I've ever seen.

Her chickens are very happy.....

And after our visit, Lucy and I walked back home.... UP HILL! Both Lucy and I are old gals....and even though I work all the time and am fairly strong, I rarely get any cardio we were both panting by the time we got to the top!

 Note to self: Get more exercise!
