Tag Archives: Easter Weekend

Wednesday

Hello everyone!  This week seems to be speeding by.  We had a great Easter weekend!  We went down to Jessica’s on Sunday.  The weather there was beautiful.  When we left Floyd that morning, it was cold, rainy and super foggy.  We still had snow in the shady places.  It really felt good to have sunshine and warmer temps for the day.

We have started warming up some this week though.  Temperatures have been in the 50’s with sun.  Nice for doing outside work.  The girls and I worked some on cleaning out the chicken house yesterday after school.  Today we (Hubby included) worked on getting wood.

I wanted to share with you all a recipe for homemade window cleaner.  Jess gave me the recipe.  It really does work.  We worked on cleaning Hubby’s van this morning.  It is his work vehicle so it gets really dirty.  I made a batch of the window cleaner and it worked really well cleaning the van windows.  If it will clean them, it must be pretty good stuff.

I think it’s time for me to rest.  Getting wood is hard work.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

 

New Ladies

Meet one of our new ladies.  We have been blessed to receive 5 new hens and 1 rooster for free.  A family that lives across the Parkway from us purchased these chickens on Easter weekend.  That makes them about 1 month younger than ours.  They decided chickens were not for them.  They gave them to us with the coup.  We brought them to their new home today.  Julie will have to work on petting them up but I don’t think it will take her long.  We are going to increase the size of our fenced in area and then put them all together.  We think our older ladies like having a rooster around.  We received 6 eggs today and one of them was a double yoke.   We do not really want the rooster though.  We are thinking of giving him away.

It is HOT here.  Temperature is 95 degrees.  I’m not sure what the heat index is but it is definitely hot.  Enjoy your day, stay cool and God bless.
