Then There Was 32!
I had thought Sally had decided to be a good mom and sit on the eggs she has in her nest now. She did for 2 days and then she never went back so I took them and put them under Priscilla. Priscilla is mean! She would sit on the eggs the other hens were laying and when I went to gather them she wouldn't just peck me she would bite! She meant business when she came after you! Since she wanted to sit on eggs she is now sitting on 12 duck eggs. That brings the total to 32! Wilma has been faithfully sitting on her ten from the beginning. Betty on the other hand let other hens help her then decided she didn't want to do it at all. She waited till Henny Penny came to give her a break and never went back! Henny Penny is sitting on 9 eggs and Red is sitting on 1 right beside Henny Penny. Red is a bantam so one is plenty for her and makes her feel like she is helping. I know all these eggs won't hatch but even if half of them do I am going to have lots of little ducklings running around the homestead. The bathroom project didn't get started today. Wayne had a doctors appointment and still has some painting to finish up on the outside of the house. Since I am having company next weekend we decided to wait till next Monday to start the bathroom. It would be a big mess with company here. I am trying so hard to be patient but I can't wait to get the bathroom done! I stayed up till 2am making soaps last night and have been making soap all day today. I was blessed with 2 huge orders and have been asked to put some in a online shop so making some for them. I also have lots of new scents that I want to get in my shop on etsy before the holidays. I just posted a tangerine scented one there today. It reminds me of Christmas and getting a tangerine in my stocking. It smells just like a peeled tangerine. I have about 10 more new scents that will be ready within a week. Our fall is going to turn back into summer. The weatherman is calling for 90 degree F weather this week. We have been having 69 and 70 degree F and it has been so nice. Now we are going to have a heatwave. Hopefully that will be it for this year and we can get on to the cold weather! It just has to be cool for Halloween! Hope everyone has a fantastic week and enjoy all your blessings!
