Hey everyone. I have missed several days of blogging and because of our modem problem, I didn't get to get out to visit all of my friends like I usually do either! So I will be catching up in the next day or two. I am going to do a random post tonight. I have my internet working better than ever, so I can do it quickly and then get my sleepy self to bed so the Easter Bunny will be sure to stop by our house tonight!!! I am still plugging along with Weight Watchers. I had a little backtracking to deal with on the old birthday week celebration! Then it took a couple of weeks to get my head back in it. Today I am down another 1.5 pounds, for a grand total of 9.8! Sheesh....I am pathetic! If I were exercising, it would be coming off so much faster. But until my knee is better I won't be doing too much. So at least I am one size down, and 10 pounds is still 10 pounds! Okay... I lied. I am .2 from 10 pounds. But still, I will take it. Moving on now. I cannot tell you how much I am loving my chickens!!! They are so fun to watch. They talk to me the second they hear me coming. I have them all named now. Snacker...the one my brother gave me, will remain Snacker. She is adorable, and I swear she is like a little puppy that follows me around the yard. So gentle and sweet. And she gives me a great big healthy egg every day! The two older Rhode Island Reds are Lucy & Ethel. Lucy is the bossy one. Ethel is pretty shy and content to be in Lucy's shadow. They get into trouble together though, just like Lucy and Ethel did on t.v. The younger Rhode Island hen, she is young and hip. Kind of punkish. I am calling her Lady Gaga. It suits her. Here they are yesterday, as they were free ranging while I worked in my garden.
Time to gather the girls into the coop for their roost.
After I put the girls to bed, I climbed up onto the boat to sit and rest a minute. It was so pretty and peaceful sitting up there. A really different view.
Saturday mornings has become routine for me to go to Weight Watchers, and then go to the local Farmer's Market. Today I went with Gennifer and the girls. We both got a few things.
Wishing all of my friends a Happy Easter tomorrow! See you soon, with more news from Grover Farms.
