7am arrival of g-daughter got my day started. I got her breakfast set up and then got ready to take her to play school for the morning. She was all smiles on the way in and her usual happy self but once I got her jacket off and started to leave she lost her happy face and cried . Getting back into the normal routine after a week off is always harder for the younger ones. I got her playing with some toys and then got out the door while one of the teachers had her distracted.
I always feel sad to leave her like that but I know it is better for her to get used to being with other kids.
Back home I did the chores finding more chicks this morning with this Black mama hen. She has these 4 chicks and 2 more eggs that were still warm so maybe she will go back and sit on these while they hatch.
I have decided I am changing my setting nest to all round buckets as the hen that sat on the eggs in the bucket turned on its side hatched everyone of her eggs. I think the eggs under these small hens are getting too spread out to keep warm in the boxes I have been using.
I had breakfast and then headed out on a nice morning walk. Even though I have rain boots on the sun is a beautiful sight this morning.
I came back inside and had devotions then it was time to pick up g-daughter. She still wasn't happy even when I arrived back to get her as one of the teachers was holding her and she looked really pale and tired.
She went right to sleep when we got in the Honda and took a long nap.
I had my lunch and then did some ironing while she slept.
She didn't want any lunch when she woke up and just wanted to go outside. She is "little miss independent " these days and made a game of going up these stairs across the porch and off and up the stairs again.
After d-in-love picked her up and hubbie came in from work we did chores and then I watched the sun set tonight from the outside patio.
This is a map of the total rainfall around the area. I have circled our area and that is what my rain gauge said also including the over 1/10th inch last night rain total.
One thing about living here in the mountains at least the rain runs off and only the low areas flood instead of the entire towns that are totally flat in the more eastern parts of the state.
Thankful for the wonderful blessings that this day held and for the love of a gracious Savior.
God Bless and Good Night
