I got to sleep a little later this morning as g-son had to go to the doctor to have another x-ray to make sure his elbow was healing correctly. His mom was taking him to his 8am appointment and I was going to meet her half the way between doctor and school to take him on to school so she could get to work.
I was in the chicken coop just starting to feed and let them out around 8:00 when my phone rang. It was d-in-love saying she had mistakenly missed his appointment time, it was yesterday morning !! She had to re-schedule for Monday so she was going to take him to school.
I finished feeding and had breakfast. The sun was winning the battle with the clouds this morning so I dawned my waterproof hiking boots and headed down to the lower pasture for a nice morning walk.
The Buttercups are plentiful in the wet bottom.
The clouds had taken the sky back over by the time I turned the ovens off so I decided to do a couple catch up errands after making a cake delivery this afternoon. I needed to pick up heart wormer for 3 of our dogs at the vet's office. After shelling out $81 for these meds I thought about how expensive pets can be and no wonder so many of them are turned in to the shelters because owners can't afford them.
I worked outside pulling weeds while hubbie mowed the lawn this evening. It looked like rain would fall any minute all evening but we finally made it through a day without a drop of moisture.
I made another nest in another brooder box for a little black silkie that just won't be discouraged from sitting. I have never used this lower box for this as it has a chicken wire front and I have always been afraid a snake would slip through the 1" chicken wire. It is the only vacant box right now with the little female quail that I rescued needing to fill one of the other boxes as soon as this next cold snap coming the first of the week passes.
I iced my cakes tonight while munching on the fresh strawberries I bought yesterday. Hubbie and I have almost ate the whole gallon !!
Daughter took the business praxis test yesterday for a teaching job at the high school she coaches at. She only found out about the job a couple weeks ago and has had 10 days to study for this test. She passed with 20+ points to spare ! Congratulations to her !!
On other family news #2 son finally has a closing date for the short-sale lot of land he made an offer on. June 10th is the closing date so he has a surveyor going out there tomorrow.
I prayerfully and humbly thank God for the blessings He bestows on my family and me each day.
Good Night and God Bless.
