Another hot muggy morning as I did chores and came back inside to have breakfast. I have a man coming this morning to buy seven of the Silkie chicks and one of the big roosters. He is the same man who bought the Silkie roosters a couple weeks ago. I told him then I wanted to wait a couple more weeks but he insisted that his son wanted them now to watch them grow. I hope it works out okay for them. They will have to have heat for awhile.
After he left I decided I had better start my baking for the day. I baked 12 caramel,4 chocolate, 6 pound cakes and a blackberry wine cake then had a late lunch.
After I ate I heard a hawk squawking up near the chicken lots. I grabbed my camera and went up to the lots.All the chickens were under their houses and very quiet. I kept walking toward the squawks and suddenly the hawk flew out of the tree he was in. He was huge, I jerked the camera up and started snapping, trying to get a pic I could indentify him with but the best pic I got of his escaping flight was this one as he headed over the fields.
I should do some sewing this afternoon but just can not get in the right mood. I did remember that I had not done the month ending figures for August so I did get that done and get August in the books. It wasn't a bad month overall so I am thankful for that, however my expense percentage went up with the rising cost of my supplies. I am going to try to make it through the season before I have to raise my prices.
The rain started while I was working in my office and as I looked out the window I couldn't even see the trees because of the pouring rain. It rained really hard just for a few minutes then slacked to a steady rain dropping 1/2" before it stopped just before chore time.
After chores the temperature dropped significantly and my 4-legged kids and I took up our cooler weather positions on the couch.
I listened to the local highschool football game on the radio while I worked and it brought back memories of all our Friday night football times. I would always get so nervous that I couldn't eat before the games. After seeing several of his team mates get hurt during the games I was always fearful of serious injury to #1 son as he played all four years of highschool.
Thankful for another blessing filled day.
Good Night and God Bless.
