Happy Sunday everyone… here we go! Photos for you – I’ll do my best to explain what we have, but as has been the case as of late – there really isn’t a cohesive theme. I’m starting with this photo of Leggs because I think it’s funny. This was Friday morning. I was changing the bandage on her foot and she just ended up sitting in my lap like that. She just stayed like that the entire time I worked on her foot. She was pretty comfortable.
Saturday morning we finished the Thursday project of the garage door. Just took a bit longer and we were able to fix it up right as rain. Well, Sue did the hard work; I just held things and pushed against the door as she was drilling, etc. The weather was a blessing that morning as there was ample cloud cover which kept the temperatures quite cool. This photo shows the new board in place. The second photo shows that we even did it well enough to shut the door! Yay!!! I think its stronger than ever.
This week we inadvertently caught a rattlesnake in the chicken fence. It got stuck there and was electrocuted. It was quite a big one and very long. The chickens stood around it and held a memorial service. There was a lot of muttering over Mr. (Ms?) Snake – so glad that he (she) wasn’t in a capacity to turn against his mourners. Sue saved the chickens from their tears by removing the snake for other lands.
I shared this on Instagram and Facebook – but I’m sharing it here because it shows the lower field all completely mowed. Looks so nice in the light of the morning, n’est pas? It’s the only one I have of the pastures at this point. I keep saying I’m going to share them with you, and I just never take any. So this will have to suffice for the time being.
The last photo I’m going to share with you for today is one Sue took, “Still Life with Eggs and Plant” is what she’d like us to call it. Judging by the number of eggs, I believe she took this Friday night. Not sure about that. We keep our eggs room temperature, unless we have an overabundance and end up needing to refrigerate until we get them to customers. This way, if we deliver to people at work, they don’t have to worry if they don’t have a refrigerator handy. Chicken eggs last much longer if you don’t wash or refrigerate them; up to seven weeks. That’s a lot of time, but once they are refrigerated then you gotta keep them cold. So, don’t try that with your store bought eggs… just sayin’. Hey! Don’t give up on me with the blog schedule… one day it’ll work out. Until then, as always~
Thanks for reading!
Today’s Weather: Wasn’t amazingly hot today, but this morning – at around 7am – the temperature was 74° with 82% humidity! The humidity was the issue today, because it really never got that warm. Spoke with my friend Ray and he confirmed that we were a great deal cooler here than even where they are, in La Mesa, California. Currently, at 6:43 p.m., it si 85° with 47% humidity, winds from the west at 7 mph, barometer reads 29.83 inHg. Sunrise today was at 5:51, and sunset will be at 6:51.
Egg Report: Friday – 30 chicken, zero duck; they are hiding their eggs again, those darn ducks. Saturday – 24 chicken, zero duck. Sunday – 33 chicken, 1 duck; but we still haven’t found their stash.
