It is still raining out just a bit but it is supposed to start clearing off. If it does and start to warm up the next few days we are going to try to do a little fishing. Jeff has said that maybe he would go with me. I cant say that I have done much because I haven't I may remove some plastic and put in some garden dirt and get a few seeds in. I am planting my vining plants along the trellises I have constructed. If my pole beans don't come up before long I will have to replant them. I still have another package of seeds.
went out a little while ago and fed the menagerie in the pen and If I did not know better I would have thought from their actions that I have been starving them. I was rather concerned about them last night because it got down to 39 degrees and was wet and windy which makes things feel even worse than what they are. they all look to be in pretty good shape.
still no babies but I got looking and she really isn't due until tomorrow. I just get antsy. It is always such a thrill to see the new little ones. I am going to have to build another cage to have for the little ones to use while I fatten them up. don't want to crowd them too much. When it warms up again I am going to have to process three rabbits. If I get that done before long it will free up one cage and a dog crate I use every once in a while
called Michael last night and I am going to be taking the six little ones over to him. I will also take a dog crate that I have put chicken wire on and he can use that to isolate them from the other ones in his flock. Once they get a little bigger the rest of the flock will be used to them and they should be okay for him to let run with the big girls.
I have nine eggs in the incubator. after reading an article on sexing chickens by the shape of the eggs they are in we decided to try it. We candled them yesterday and from what we can tell they are viable. we will see in another eleven days.
I have one grandson who I have not seen since he was one. He will be eleven in July. I got a message on facebook yesterday from his mother and last evening I had a nice visit with them over the phone. It looks as though I am going to see him the first part of June. This is an answer to a prayer. a few years ago I tried to reach out to her but too much had happened during the time of my son's death. I was willing to let the past stay in the past and forgive and go on, she was not. Now she is ready and I am going to meet her at least half way if not more. I am to call them again this evening.
Chicken is in the crock pot and later I will fix spaghetti with alfredo sauce and mix it with the chicken Jeff really likes it that way. I will not eat it I will save out a little chicken for me and make me a baked sweet potato and a salad. I have to get back on track with my food. I know what I have been doing wrong but went ahead and did it any way. Now the scales show it. I know I can do it I have done it before I just have to get myself going the right way again.
That is enough blabbing, Ohh I meant blogging, for today catch you on the rebound. god bless all of you
