It was touch and go with my grandmother this week. I honestly though her time had come. But, in true fashion of her spirit, she has rallied! They finally released her from the hospital and she was moved back to the rehab home. Here is hoping her health continues to improve.
With injuries to both my feet, I am still hobbling like a penguin, but the spring chores need to get done. I finally got our seeds started, with only one mishap. The "wind" blew one of the trays over. I am pretty sure the "wind" is not to blame. LOL But what ever, I quickly restarted all the seeds in the try. No sense crying over split seeds (cause there isn't much you can do about it!)
So what made me smile this week?
Cinder may be at the bottom of the pecking order, but she is one smart cookie. She knows that Mr Bill will not tolerate the other girls picking on her and she sticks close to him. *wink* Smart chicken, very smart.
Poor, poor Mr Bill. He needs to learn to run faster. It's been a long winter and he isn't used to being snuggled. We will have to work on that now that he has had his first spring bath and doesn't smell so bad.
If anyone is looking to get me a belated birthday gift, I found what I need. Yes I said need. LOL This sign and these big old chickens at Family Farm and Home are awesome!
It's an itty bitty, tiny weeny, green egg! Guess Ester ran out of egg making juice on this one!
Actually it is a fairy or "fart" egg. It happens LOL
When your laying on the couch and your country kid lets a chicken in the house.... Yup, she just hopped right up on the arm of the couch and made herself to home. Thankfully she didn't peck me in the face!
We have some over achievers in the little greenhouse by the window! I planted these seeds 4 days ago and look!!! The Morning Glories are already up!
"Is it wake up time, mama?" Yes, Bill and Betty. Have fun looking for bugs and playing in the pool. Mama loves you!
Someone was a little impatient when it came to me filling his water bowl. Little Larry sure has a big personality some times. Back in your pen, buddy.....
Buffy has the best tooshy ever. So full and fluffy. If there was a rooster pin up calender, she would so be in it!
Just a bunch of ducks, doing what ducks do, and looking cute doing it!
Nothing like closing out the day with the country kids and critters enjoying each other’s company.
This is life, and I love it!
Remember to take time out of your busy day to find your own things to make you smile!
