Where Did Last Week Go?

Today is Monday, August 23, 2010. It has been another wet and humid week, with no change over the weekend. So will have to get laundry going first thing this morning and see what happens. Suppose to be storms through tomorrow.

Not sure where last week went or the weekend. I remember Monday, Friday and Sunday, but nothing in between. It was here and long gone. Monday because the boys had a long school day, Friday because I ran all over town in the rain, then on Sunday I was thrilled that I listed three more things on Etsy and went to see mama.

Mama wanted to know when I will be making bean soup again. This was a hint, I took the hint and started soaking the beans last night, she will have her soup tonight. This will make her happy at least for now. So tonight before George gets home, I will finish up her soup and make her a batch of corn bread.

Friday while cleaning the chickens, I found an egg that didn't have a shell. Talk about something that looks really weird. So I did the Google search and found out that the correct term for this is a "rubber" egg. Some hens do this with their first eggs, if it happens later on after they have been laying, it is their diet. It felt like picking up a water balloon. But Sunday there were two eggs! So now both of the little red hens are laying! They don't like the rain, when cleaning on Sunday, the rains came pouring down, they ran all the way across the yard to get into their house. They look so funny when they are running.

Have to get a couple of packages ready to mail and start the laundry. Keeping fingers crossed that the rains wait until afternoon to come.

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