Sickness and Spring

It's been a long couple of weeks around here.  Someone, sometimes more than one of us, has been sick every day for the last 2 weeks.  I hope that we are starting to turn the corner.  Around town, in sunny fields, daffodils are starting to bloom.  Ours aren't yet, but the ones I've seen elsewhere prove that soon, our shady valley will blossom with yellow suns.
These two have been so happy playing together lately.  Lydia has been teaching Gyunay to play with great imagination, and he loves it.  

Gyunay is trying to talk more than ever.  He is not often understood by outsiders, but Lydia understands him best.  She translates for him when others can't figure out what he's saying.

In chicken news, our younger pullets have just begun to lay eggs!  We got the first small egg yesterday, and two more today.  We are very happy with this situation.  Malachi scrambled up the two eggs and devoured them.  I was thrilled to let him; he's been the sickest of all, since he caught both the stomach bug last week and the flu this past week, and he's lost weight.  He's finally fever-free, though, and has more energy for the first time. Elijah is especially happy to have him feeling better.
