More Storms Thru The Weekend

Today is Saturday, July 3, 2010. The thunderstorms are still here and supposed to be until Tuesday. I like a good storm as well as the next guy, but this is getting ridiculous. The wind is blowing and it is still dark out from the overcast of clouds.

George is working today, so I will be able to get things done, that didn't get done last weekend. Have projects that are started and I thought were almost done, and then, they seem to take on a new direction. Planning on getting at least three completed today. That's the plan....

Went to let the chickens out yesterday morning, there was a little maybe six inch across puddle in front of their door. They don't like to get their feet wet, each one stood on the frame of the door and jumped across the puddle. Funny watching each one get their balance and then jump. The rooster is getting a little pushy with my girls. Oh, I know this is natural, but when he is plucking out their feathers, he is going to far! He tried with "Boss Lady" but she quickly put him in his place. I couldn't figure out why the little all white one was always dirty. Well, now I know. Just might separate him from the girls for awhile, until they are a little bigger.

He needs to remember that I don't need him and he is costing me more in feed than it would to get more babies. But George wanted to get a rooster.......

It is so nice to have another driver in the house. Yesterday son#5 went to the feed store, then to get hay and the pool supply to get chlorine. He says, "You know mom, you don't have to go." You are so right, see you when you get back. So while he went to town, I made bread. Later went to get groceries and the running for the week is done!

Wishing everyone a great 4th! Be safe!

Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~
