Ducklings


Last week, I was invited to breakfast with our pastor's wife and daughter. We had a great time chatting, and just before I left, they showed me the latest additions to their family: five baby ducks! They were simply adorable. They have raised ducks before, and they plan to keep them until they are full-grown and then hand them over to a farm.

The pastor's wife told me about the ducks she raised when she lived in a different state. When they had grown big enough, they would follow her down to the creek to go for a swim and then follow her back home again. She ended up having to let the ducks go, but several years later, while she was canoeing, a duck came right up to her and followed her the entire time. She thinks it had to be one of her ducks! If we ever own a house with a bit of land, I think I'm going to have to raise ducks. They're just so darling.

    Good! You got it on the right blog! :) Ducklings are so cute! Do you have any other pets?

    1. Guess I was bound to make that mistake sometime. Lol. We don't have any other pets (although we have 6 stray cats that roam around our property throughout the day), but someday I hope to have a pet bird. And my husband wants a dog.

      We have a cat. Do the stray cats ever come in you house?

  2. This is sort of random, but have you ever heard of Chocolate Covered Katie? She has a super-popular healthy dessert blog, and I can't help but think the two of you look alike! Maybe it's just me though. . .Anyhow, cute photo!

    1. I hadn't heard of her, but I looked her up, and I can see why you say we look alike!

    Ellie does not look like that Chocolate Covered Kate. That girl looks like a girl Jessica Lowerns from 90210.


    Ellie looks like Jessica Biel from 7th Heaven.
