Party Girls – Who Knew?

I’ve been sleeping on a mattress on the floor in our living room while our new animals are babies and transitioning, just not wanting them to get in trouble while we’re all in our bedrooms and not hearing.

If you didn’t know this, because I sure didn’t, little ducklings are party girls! I kept jumping up all night to see who had their head wedged or some other emergency, only to find a duck party in progress. All the raucous noise was just them running around having fun. Sheesh.

They’re funny, though. When I bring out the camera, they think it’s some exotic predator and freeze. Pretty convenient!

And on the screen porch, chewing cud on a toddler chair:

Guess what we finally have in the garden? Why no, you don’t need to adjust the color on your monitor, that tomato IS actually red. At least it squeaked in before August – two years ago we ate our first red one on July 4th.

Yep, that’s today’s ongoing life in a smelly house :-).

Hilarious about the duck partying. Are they nocturnal creatures, or do they just take naps whenever they need them 'round the clock?

According to what I've read they're not nocturnal, and they do seem to be sleeping a bit better now! Hopefully it was a baby-duck thing.
