Had a good-bad day yesterday...woke feeling bad ..but a quick call to the doc and meds on board..I was perking away...Fixed a kicking good meal for all of us..It is my sons BD tomorrow...I told him to count MD as his BD dinner too..not up to two such large meals in one week!!
I have in the chicken house, my adult birds...9 hens and 2 roosters. Then in the grow out pen I have the 6 baby girls. Plus 3 geese and one very confused duck that thinks he is a goose. And a pair of Lion Head rabbits. In the AM it takes maybe 20 minutes to feed them all and check them out to make sure they are ok. I spend more time than that giving Skinner a massage and rub down. When it is time to clean out the chicken house and change their bedding...ahh I just take my time and get it done. I enjoy my birds so much...they don't take the place of a horse, but indeed horses don't lay breakfast for you...heee heee.
Getting ready to tuck in..a very quiet day here. I planted some flowers , did the watering and just took the rest of the day off. Finished my book..it had become rather predictable by the end few chapters..that is where most authors will lose me. Started a new poncho for a neighbor and set up the plan for the veggie garden. I will plant that tomorrow..according to the Almanac tomorrow is the day to put above ground crops in...so tomatoes here I come!!
For now ready to find my bunk....nite y'all
