Wonderful Dinner

We enjoyed the food at the "Real Food" dinner and learned more about our hosts. I hope I didn't pressure her too much about the chickens. They are young and so nice. I should have socialized more, but sometimes I am shackled by my own shyness and feel Charlie is not comfortable in new social situations. I really wanted to talk to Amy. When she came to my house for the "chicken tour", she was reluctant to leave saying "I love the energy of this house." By far the best compliment my home has ever received. I hope we are included in more invitations. I would love to host one of these events myself.

New Friends

It's been a while since I've been here. Wallowing in self pity, which is never a good thing. Then, by noticing a post on Facebook, about urban chickens, I left a comment. This led to a request to "tour" our urban hen set up. This in turn led to meeting 3 people I wantd to know more. After the "tour" came the "friending" on Facebook which led to an invitation to attend a "Real Food Dinner". The meal is comprised of real foods, "knowing exactly what's in your food". That is what we believe here at the "farm", but frankly, I am excited just to get the chance to learn more about these new friends!
