Where Did The Weekend Go?
Wow, its Monday already and it seems like the weekend was just a dream. William left for Minnesota but will be back in a few days. We did a few errands this morning and a few chores. I have been packaging items for shipment and trying to pack up more of my kitchen for the remodel. I am so afraid I will never get my kitchen back once the remodeling starts. The dining room should be finished tomorrow if I find a light fixture. I really am trying.. honest! Ms. Diva is looking more pregnant everyday. Sammi is filling out from having her babies nicely. She is eating really well and Diva will eat anything she can get her mouth on. Nitro is enjoying being the only male around the ladies. When William went out to see the goats I went in the pen with them and Nitro had to show William I was one of his ladies too. He didn't want William around Diva, Sammi or me. We had to laugh. Had a new baby chick hatch a few days ago and the two I already had are acting like its mothers. They don't peck it or try to hurt it. They even cover it at night with their wings. I will have to try to take a picture tonight. Bud has had his house moved around the dining room so much he is pouting and staying in the corner. If we open his door to feed or give him water he smacks his tail at us. He is letting us know he is tired of being moved around and wants to stay by the window to enjoy the sunshine. The animals around here seem to let their feelings and thoughts know very easily. Groucho is in trouble as he has decided to try and catch a Guinea. They run screaming and then fly into the duck pen and the ducks start chasing them. I have to go get them out. The guineas chase the chickens and bite them if they get the slightest chance. I think I am going to put them all in time out and take a nap! I got a quart and a half of milk from Sammi this morning and can't wait to see how she does this evening. Diva dried herself up after a few weeks of slowly cutting back on how much we milked from her. Her babies are due May 23 so a extra week of being dry won't hurt her. I am already looking forward to my supper tonight as I am having leftovers from Outback. William was nice enough to let me keep the leftovers. Well I guess I had better get back to packing things away. Have a great rest of the day and hope you are adapting with the time change better than I am.
