I Am Still Alive!!

We had a very busy weekend. Michael took Friday off and we planned on getting lots done. When he is home, I do not get on here too much, so that is why I have not posted this weekend. On Thursday morning, I got a call from the post office bright and early. We had more chicks arrive. It was supposed to be a just a small batch of 35, but it ended up being even smaller... only 25. I thought you would like to see how they come. This first picture is the brooder all cleaned out from the last bunch and set up for the new bunch.

This is how the carton comes. If you click on it to make it bigger, you can see the chicks through the holes in the box. They make a great big noise for such little things.

Here is the box with the lid off. Aren't they cute? These are all meat birds, and this is the only point that they are cute. =)

We did all of our errands on Friday. We had quite a few to take care of. We went to the greenhouse, the bulk food store, the bank, Verizon, TSC, Kroger and probably some other places I forgot. Saturday, Joshua wanted to go garage saling in a nearby community. Every year on this weekend, they have tons of garage sales in this area. We got some good deals, but really did not buy very much. Joshua got an oar and an anchor for his boat. He got a really old RISK game that was in pristine condition. He paid 50 cents for it. I got 8 blue gingham cloth napkins, something for Michael's Dad, some shirts for Michaels and some small towels to use with the animals. It was fun being together. Then Sunday, we had our fellowship next door. We always eat a meal together and we all hung out together. On Monday, we got up and started getting things done around here and then went to some friends in the afternoon. We cooked out and then sat and talked for a short while. We then went and played miniature golf. Today, I have been trying to catch up. My phone and DSL were out most of the morning and part of the afternoon. I walked next door and we used her cell phone (her phone was out too) to call and report it.

I hope to be back on here more regular now. Hope you all had a great weekend as well.

Hello Marci! It sounds like you had a very productive weekend. Your new baby chicks are the cutest things! Too bad they don't stay that cute. :0)
Have a wonderful week.
