What with barn chores, cooking and gardening, it’s futile to paint my fingernails. At best, I keep them short, tidy and clean. But, since this month I can do none of those things that ruin my nails, I decided to paint them matte gold. Very New Years festive.
I went out to say hello to the goats today. I had a dozen leftover kernels of popcorn, which makes their tails wag with joy. The boys did not notice my painted nails. Then I visited the girls in the coop. I squatted in the run with a handful of poultry manna treats. Lulu came out into the snow to see what I had. It was very confusing. Gold is sparkly! It must be meant for her! But, pecking was quite unsatisfactory. Lulu settled for the boring brown pellets.
