Update on Isabel, My Beloved

Hello! Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!

If Winter decides to stay mild and snowless, I vote that we fast forward into times when the days are longer so my ducks can start laying again.

I have been purchasing eggs from the grocery store and it is a sad state of affairs. While I have to clean my eggs a bit before cracking into the pan, my duck eggs are not only richer in taste, but they are much larger in size. I require a large number of chicken eggs for sure… Just look at the difference!

Speaking of large numbers, I went out and picked up a puzzle for my Beloved. She likes puzzles on occasion. This is a critical time where her mind needs to stay sharp. She can run laps around me when it comes to thinking, but oh well.

On the topic of laps,

We also went on another walk around the track. If I am not mistaken, her last lap took 37 minutes to walk a quarter mile and this time, she did it in 22 minutes and 45 seconds!

To top off this accomplishment, she walked from the car to the track through thick dried grass and patches of snow!

Well, that is all the news fit to print at the moment! Have a beautiful day!

    Beautiful jigsaw! Bella has outdone her last record, keep it going. Not that breaking record is what I am excited about, I am excited to see her pace is faster so her muscles are regaining strength. ๐Ÿฆต
