Woke at 7 am to g-son coming in. We were hoping to snooze with him for a little while longer but no dice !! He spotted his surprise Easter bunny drop off as soon as he came through the door even with half closed eyes !! No chocolate until a breakfast of waffles and milk were consumed. He made short work of the chocolate bunny for his breakfast dessert.
After I finished chores and I had my breakfast which was the normal cereal and hot tea. (no chocolate for me)
Dolly and Bernie lined up for haircuts and baths. I found the first tick of the season crawling on my arm last night and I want their hair short enough to see if they bring any of those little buggers inside on them.
After lunch Hubbie went up to church to work on the parking spot lines and g-son and I headed outside. It is another beautiful day although a little cool,65 but plenty of sunshine.
While he rode his bike and played on the swing I took some pics.
This is the huge azalea that graces my front porch each year.
Another nice bloomer is this old fashioned Snowball bush. The balls are green now but in a few days they will be white.
This is g-son running from Pawpaw's shop to tell me they caught a mouse in a trap.
Hubbie and I made a trip to Tractor Supply to pick up chick starter and them stopped by Sam's Club for a few things on the way home.
So far this season all my chicks have done very well. These are the first hatched chicks mixed with the tractor Supply Americanas and New Hampshire Reds I bought and started in the basement. They are almost 6 weeks old now. Another 2 weeks and they will be ready to go out into the lot with the Silkies.
This picture is one of the white Silkies that sat on the neighbors green eggs and none hatched, so I bought her some Production Red chicks from Tractor Supply.
I have a red Silkie setting on a dozen silkie eggs that should hatch any day now and another red silkie on some more of the neighbor's eggs plus a couple of my Orpingtons that should hatch this weekend.
Surprisingly no one else has wanted to set !!
After a supper of left overs and evening chores I crashed in the sunroom with my 4-legged kids and watched darkness fall. I am sapped this evening after a not so demanding day but I didn't sleep well last night so I am getting in bed early tonight to get ready for another day with g-son tomorrow as he is out of pre-school for spring break this week.
Tonight is only going to be in the low 40's but tomorrow night look out, we are under a freeze warning for Tuesday and Wednesday nights,yuck !!! Praying for all the early fruit that is on the trees and vines.
Thanking God for the wonderful day filled with the joy of grandson and the beauty of God's creations.
Good Night and God Bless.
