The Good: The sky is a checkerboard of sun and thick dark clouds, very interesting and pretty. It has character.
The Bad: It's raining sporadically every half-hour so I can't free-range any chicks - they've been cooped up for two days now as yesterday was a deluge of thick rain all day.
The Good: We managed to mow half our lawn and do a bit of landscaping over the weekend (the other half is still too boggy for the lawn tractor).
The Bad: Everything grew right back... in dandelions. We now sport a bright yellow lawn.
The Good: I'm getting a free replacement jigsaw from Black & Decker as the one I had bought and used for three weeks just broke.
The Bad: I placed the service call March 23rd... and another one April 28th.... and another one today. I had to escalate to a manager to finally get told the new unit was shipped out April 30th. Gnar.
The Good: I finally sold five of my 6-week old roosters, yay!
The Bad: They were supposed to leave at 10am this morning and of course the people had a delay... they may come by around 4pm instead... I hate people.
The Good: I seem to have enough energy today to finally attack a bunch of housework, gardening, all that good stuff.
The Bad: There's so much to do, I don't know where to begin!
I'd keep going on but you get the idea! Right now the dishwasher's going, there's a load of laundry I need to go hang to dry and then it's time to hoover this giant mess of a place. At least all the chicken condos in the garage and nice and clean - it's amazing the amount of dust and poop these birds generate, mind-boggling in fact. I have to shop-vac the entire garage this week in order to be able to breathe!
No wonder my poor babies have respiratory problems :-/
I took my camera out for a walk yesterday, the dogs kept us company... The sky was such a lovely refreshing blue after the morning storms, a real treat!
Dakotah, my pretty-boy posing in the field:
I've gotta get a move-on and will leave you with a quote from my lovely grandmother, who's now 87 and has been in a nursing home (old-age home?) for a few years now on account of a slow progression of Alzheimer's...
When asked "what have you been up to?", I've been told with a smile "oh pas grand-chose, on tricote des nounes pour le gouvernement!" which translates to "oh not much, just knitting muffs for the government!"
And by muff, she wasn't talking about the kind that keeps your ears warm either. :-o
