As I sat looking out the window this morning, after I checked on the critters and let the chickens out, I thought back on the year so far here at Nestle Inn Bed & Breakfast.
I had the wonderful opportunity to meet new guests, and make new friends. It is always a pleasure to talk with people about why they visit the little town of Beaverton, and to hear about their lives elsewhere. I can't think of a better business to travel where I don't even have to leave the house.
There were newborns this year at the Nestle Inn ranging from small and large. Day-old chicks were purchased in May to become laying pullets in September. With the new flock on it's way that meant that the "old ladies" could be used elsewhere, such as in soup. Rooster still has yet to gather his new ladies together like he should, but I'm sure he will.
Rocky, the other rooster, found a new home with his own flock of hens. Last I heard he was doing well.
There were baby bunnies, and more baby bunnies. The last two bunnies born were fathered by Gizmo, the Angora rabbit.
And then there is Sarah. Sadie gave birth to her little kid on September 25th. She has been a pleasure every single day. I wish I had half the energy she has.
And talk about energy! I'm watching the pullets in the yard scavenge for bugs and such. And it seems whenever they want to travel from one part of the yard to the next they are in such a hurry, running and flying; as if there isn't much time left to get to where they're going.
It's amazing how much I get to see and witness just sitting here looking out the window.
