They’re Here

We got the baby chicks yesterday afternoon.  Aren’t they cute?  We have 22 of them.  5 are Buff Orpingtons and the others are Rhode Island Reds.  They had sold out all the Buff’s but 5 when we got there.  We took the last of the Reds that they had.  The lady said they would get more in on Monday but didn’t know what breeds they would be.  The odd one is a Ameraucana.  I think they are also known as Easter Eggers as they lay colored eggs.   We are hoping this one is a hen.  The girls thought it would be fun to get something different.  Anyway, they spent the night in the kitchen next to the wood fire.  It was pretty cold here last night with rain, fog and wind so we thought they might be better off inside the house.  Today, we moved them to the coop with a heat lamp for warmth.  The house seems quiet without their chirping. 

The girls and I are off to Sam’s and Lifeway today.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

Birds

We have been entertained all day today by these beautiful birds.  Many, many birds.  Every time I looked out my dining room window, I would see 50-60 birds in our yard.  Probably 20 of these were doves.  We love feeding the birds.  They love sunflower seeds.  This morning as Hubby and I were sharing our coffee together, we listened as they sang morning praises to the Lord.  Beautiful!  We take care of them by feeding them and they take care of us by providing beautiful praise music.  I think that’s a fair trade.  It was a little distracting doing school and watching the birds, though.  Well, the fog has moved in here.  Super foggy.  High wind warnings for tomorrow and Thursday 25-30 mph  with gusts up to 50 mph.  This will be for Wednesday and Thursday.    I never knew what fog and wind could be like until we moved to Floyd.  No church tomorrow night-it’s already cancelled.  I guess it isn’t done snowing yet.  I just looked out and the snow is pouring down.  Oh well.  We are warm inside our home, our tummy’s are full and our children are happy.  Life is good!  God Bless.
