Unity Town News
In my world
The ducks were 4 weeks old this weekend, so I let them out of the pen, and it was only moments before they were in the pond. Watching them paddle and swim, dive and wiggle their little tail feathers made me regret not getting ducks sooner! What a joy.
When we were in Florida, we ate alligator. It was all right. Reminded me of pork. I can cross that off my bucket list. I also killed a scorpion that had sneaked into the house. It was small.
And a super happy birthday to my bestie Lulu Belle!
