Day of Rest?

Where did my spring weather go to? I have had a fire going all day. I thought I might get to take a nap and enjoy the fire but that didn't happen. After feeding and milking this morning I had to run get chicken feed. While I was out I got a nice little box to package my vintage Easter egg I sold on ebay. I was really surprised at how much it went for so thought I would package it really nice. I cleaned all the water buckets and gave Sammi a shot of vitamin E. She is eating good and adjusting nicely. She just looks too skinny to me so I am trying to build her up. Jane and I went to the bread store and got bread for the chickens. They all stand at the gate waiting for their bread. You could feed them the best chicken feed in the world and they would stand there and wait for crumbled bread. So I give them bread and chicken feed. Yeah, they are spoiled rotten too. I also got a little paperwork done. After milking and feeding and gathering eggs. I found Snow White sitting on eggs and Sister Sister was sitting there waiting to sit on the eggs and Betsy stuck her head under Snow White and roll a egg from under her so she could sit on a egg too. Think I will divide the eggs tomorrow so they all can sit on them. I had one chick hatch in the incubator today. Its doing fine and I am hoping the others will start hatching too. Flower has made her nest in her house and she is due next Saturday. Babies are popping up around the homestead. Well I have laundry and dishes to do and I want to list some more items on ebay. Everyone have a great night and hope your week is filled with lots of blessings.

Today my granddaughter Kristine is 12 yrs old. She was my first grandchild. I will always remember the first time I saw her. There was a special feeling that seem to flow between us when I held her for the first time. She has made all A's and B's every year. She plays basketball and flag football. She helps do housework, helps take care of her little sister. She helps care for rescued squirrels and raccoons which includes getting up during the night to give the baby ones a bottle. Her smile lights up a room. Her tenderheart and kindness makes her a friend to everyone she meets. Happy Birthday Kristine! I love you uddles and unches!!!

Peggy I send special birthday wishes to your first grand daughter Kristine from here in Australia."happy birthday"

Your wallpaper border is such a beautiful pattern and colour and looks so nice in the dinning room well done I know they are a lot of work but it looks lovely.

Your farmyard family sound as if everything is going well and I am pleased spring is there now even if you are having a "winter moment" right now.

We are collecting firewood for our open fireplace and watching the leaves turn their golden colours as the days get shorter and the nights get colder.

Have a lovely day as it left us here with best wishes to you all there.

You have a beautiful granddaughter Peggy and the little puppy is just precious. Your home repairs are awesome! I love the border that you chose. Your house is very "homey" looking and that is what I like so much about it. We in NC are going to have some more warm days this week. I love them too! But also like the warmth of the woodheater when it is cold.
Have a great day my friend! Hey, I love your new template too!

Hey Peggy, nice to be able to visit you again. We are still on the road in Tennessee in fact but should be home soon. We are trying to get there but the wind was so bad that we had to pull off and stop for the day!! I always love coming and reading about all your wonderful days. Sandy
