G-son was here at what seemed to be an extra early hour this morning. The first Monday morning of day light saving time is a day I do not look forward to !!!
Hubbie took him to school and I dragged myself from under the warm covers and did chores.
When hubbie got back we had breakfast and then he went outside to finish cleaning up a downed tree in the bottom pasture.
I did some paperwork this morning that I have been putting off and then went outside to clean a couple brooder boxes out to get ready for another two setting Silkie hens.
I sold my Orpington rooster to a man who is picking him up along with a couple of my older hens this afternoon so I am going to let these two little hens set on all the large eggs I gather in the next couple days because it may be a while before I find another rooster for my ladies.
After lunch I took a nice long walk in the 68 degree sunshine, then did some yard work. It feels so good to be outside in a T-shirt !!
And I finally spotted some color in the lawn.
When he was fed and settled in I took a hot cup of tea out to the outside patio and watched the bridge workers for a while. Rebekah and little Evy came out to visit. They are both still under the weather a bit but the warm sunshine did them good to get out in.
#1 son came after g-son and #2 son came by to drop off checks for the payments on his taxes.
As I gathered eggs this evening I heard some small peeps from the brooder box where the hen I sat 3 weeks ago was. I checked and she had one little Partridge chick and another couple eggs had good sized holes in them ready to hatch. At least their first day will be a warm one. Guess I'll be rigging up a light to help her keep them warm by Wednesday night.
After supper hubbie and I had a cup of coffee out on the front porch in our rocking chairs.
As I sat out there in the peaceful quietness of the evening I thought how lucky I am to be able to take in all of God's handiwork as I watched the day come to an end.
Grateful for the wonderful world God created for our viewing pleasure. What an awesome God we serve !!
Good Night and God Bless.
