This is going to be a self indulgent post. Let my apologize up front for that. Under “categories” I’ll classify this as “musings”. Since spending some time at home with my folks, and then going through old photos looking for some scans recently, I’ve been an introspective or even nostalgic mood. Bear with me? Continue reading
Been awhile. You have any news? We do have news. But let me being by saying, I have no idea what day of “quarantine” it is, how long we’ve been in this situation, nor how long it will be until we get out of it; however, we are doing our best to get through it all one day at a time. Continue reading
As promised, I’m going to update you on the construction projects. Trent sure got a whole lot done for us last week. He finished all the initial projects, and we’re hoping to have him back over time to help with the big stuff! For now, though, his done.
Blessings to you on this day! Today, being Sunday, and after attending to “virtual” church services this morning, I thought I’d share how God is working in our lives and helping us to share those golden nuggets with people all over the place. (Not, chicken nuggets, I mean eggs!!!) One of my Face Book friends, from High School, posted this photo of eggs today – I thought it was rather apropos of the season. I don’t know if she made them or not, but I shared it to the Wing and a Prayer Facebook page, giving her photo credit. Thought it was cute enough to share here (thanks again Cheryl). Continue reading
As everywhere, our weeks are not normal. We continue to do our every day chores and work on projects around the house as best as we can. This last week was a difficult week – we had to put down several chickens, including our much loved rooster Olaf. You may remember that he was being picked on by the goose and several others. We had placed him in the top brooder to keep an eye on him, but he did not get better. We didn’t want to have him suffer, so we put him down along with 2 hens. Continue reading
So,typing with one hand and conferencing on the cell with my other. The amazing things we are now able to accomplish from home. This is day 2 for me, working from home. The chickens are nonplussed; they say they work from home all the time with out any issues. So, what’s the big deal, they ask. Not a big deal really. I suppose. Continue reading
Hello to you on this first day of Spring! After a day of pouring rain, yesterday, our day is definitely Spring like. If it were not for the persistent wind, we would have had perfect weather. Continue reading
Ok. Here it is the very long awaited and much missed egg report. I have no excuse for not sharing the numbers, save for sheer laziness. So, I’ve created a little spreadsheet for you. Hope it fills in whatever you’ve felt was missing from your chicken news life. 🙂 As you can see, the goose has not been contributing to the numbers in some time – lazy goose. Everyone else is doing the best they can. Average daily chicken egg total for this part of the month is 26.8; duck egg, 1.65. Not bad as we work our way toward Spring.
We don’t have Bob the Builder working for us, but we do have Trent! My friend’s nephew lives in Bisbee and was hoping to get some extra work. If it’s one thing we have it’s extra work. I just wanted to give you a quick update on the work going on. Continue reading
This weekend, “rescue” was the words of the day. It started out a regular day, with regular items on our to do list… then just kind a took an interesting turn. Looking back on the day, I found that all the big ticket items were along the theme of rescue. Want to see if you can follow my train? Continue reading
