Ordered some chickens.  
After I made my post yesterday I went ahead and placed an order for my new baby chickens. This is so exciting. They will ship the week of May 19th. So far away. I ordered
2 Olive Eggers
1 Buff Orpington
1 Black Jersey Giant
1 Salmon Faverolles
1 White Marans

I need names though I am going to name the Jersey giant Hoboken. The reason is there was a movie made in 1984 called The Hoboken Chicken Emergency. I LOVED this movie. It's about a boy that buys a giant chicken named Henrietta for Thanksgiving. She escapes and destroys half the town. That movie made an influence on me and I loved how they made Henrietta. Her face was so cute. She was a white chicken tough. There are White Jersey Giants but I wanted a black one. They are the largest of all chickens. I do need to think of names for the others. I think my salmon chicken will be so lovely. They are a strange breed with pea combs, ear muffs, beards, feather feet and five toes. That's weird a bird would have five toes. Most birds have four. They are a pretty cream and white color. I know I have always joked about naming three of them Hot Wings, Drumstick and Nugget. Hehe but I don't think I will do that. Maybe I'll name one Melon since I like cucurbits and I have a Zucca already. Maybe name one Luffa.

I hope I can finish inking the drawing of Owen vs Ophidius today. That would be good so I can start to color it as well. I will also be inking page 1 or Renegade. I know that will be slow going. Not good.

It's raining and cold today. Tonight I may have to bring in the budgies. The next few nights will be in the upper 30s. Not good. Luckily all the plants are already inside.
I've gotten all my calendars but one now. Of course the one I most want hasn't even shipped yet. It's the one of Monument Valley. Gosh they better send it soon because I want to enjoy the January page before it's too late. That is one of the must beautiful photos and I don't want to miss it.

I looked up some of those chickens yesterday. There were some cute ones.

Blah on this weather. It rained this morning, but it's sunny now. It's still cold though.

Yeah, that Salmon is going to be lovely. I don't know what the olive eggers will look like. I think they will be like my Ester Eggers. The buff Oprington will be very pretty.

Yeah it's not a nice day.

That is exciting about the chickens! May does seem a long way away, but time flies. Cool names you have thought up so far :)

Ugh. I hope you get through your cold day okay.

Thanks. It will be so nice to have baby chicks again.

Tonight will be pretty cold.
