From the front porch

For those of y'all up in the Frozen North ... I snapped this from the front porch, after listening to the chicks make happy noises through the open windows, dressed in capri length jeans and wearing a cotton button-up shirt as a light jacket.  Yes, that is still-green grass.  This morning is much cooler than the past couple mornings, as it's only in the lower 60s.

The chicks are pretty energetic this morning, after a weekend of humid 80F plus with overnight lows only in the lower 70s.

Like last year, we are forecast to get an actual cold front this week - and may even get frost.  This will be perfect for a mess of baking.  I have enough bread heels to do up more cinnamon cranberry bread pudding, plus there is a birthday cake to bake.  There is a nugget to roast (as soon as we pluck the last bit of feathers off it) and still five more to slaughter.
