Sunday Afternoon

Not a lot going on. Kids are each doing their own thing or things for me! :) MN and S went to scatter salt blocks for me. MN is driving. MJ is building us a new cage. We seem to have acquired some chicks and a guinea. Really we acquired the guinea on Thursday morning. It was maybe a week old. Have no clue why it was all alone and cheeping to the top of it's lungs. Kids beat the cats and dogs to it so we had ONE bird. One bird doesn't do well. I decided to add a few chicks to keep it happy, and maybe alive. We bought 6 chicks on Friday. Two Rhode Island Reds, 2 Buff Orpingtons, and 2 Araucana,(color egged). They are all hens. Kids can't believe how gentle they already are. I can see these full grown hens perched on the windows begging to come in and do school!

This week is shaping up to be busy. Tomorrow (Monday) we keep grandson. Then Tue. we have a home study update. No matter how many times we get CPS workers out it still makes me uncomfortable. Please pray that we all feel peace and that it goes smoothly and easy. Then Wed. is again grand baby day. :) Not sure what we will do on Thursday. Friday is our normal produce run. DIL usually does that but she has to sooner or later have a baby! Maybe by then! Hey maybe that is what we will be doing on Thursday!

Here or some quick pictures I took this afternoon of our lazy day.

Snowball doing what guardian dogs should be doing... laying with the stock. Isn't she white!?

Lots of concentration in backing up and not running over anything.

Off to scatter salt blocks for mom!

Chicks in the poor man brooder.

Poor man brooder! Hey it works!

That's All Folks!
