We got our order of chicks and turkeys this morning. They are so darn cute when they are chicks. Just one of the chicks didn't make it. That is isn't so bad. They are pretty darn crowded in that little box and they took approximately 3 days to reach us.
We are getting ready for the lake today and will head up there tomorrow morning. Looks like we will have rain tomorrow afternoon and into Saturday morning. Hopefully it doesn't rain a lot and ruin the BBQ. You just can't rely on mother nature that is for sure.
Hope you have a great day!

Boy, it sure has been a while since I posted the last time. I get busy living life and trying to get things done that I don't take the time to blog and see what my other bloggers are doing. This week is going to pretty darn hectic, we are going to the lake and have to get ready for that. Then we are doing the BBQ and have to get things ready for that also. Plus, trying to do the normal day to day things around the farm. Did I ever say how much I love spring and summer? (I will just as soon as everything is done)
Hope you had a lovely holiday weekend!

We are in the process of getting the garden pond redone. I have been working on getting all the old rocks out. so that we can put down new covering to keep the weeds out. Then we are going to put new pebbles down before we put the big rocks back on top. We might even make the fish pond a little bigger this year. We really haven't decided yet. It is a big project and hopefully we will be working on it some more this week end and will be able to make some progress.
Hope you had a great day.

Then Saturday was a busy day also, I had to help with food (Ladies Auxiliary for the fire department) at an auction. It has been a pretty busy four days. Yesterday I spent part of a day weaving rugs and doing laundry. I still have one more rug to weave then I can deliver them to my client. I think today is going be a lazy day for me. I might go out and brush the rest of the ponies. I did a good brushing on Annie, but I need to really wash her tail, it is a mess and just brushing it can not get all the goo out of it!
I might even go for a ride! It has been a long time since I have been on a back of a horse. It is time to get back in the saddle and get my arse in shape! Hope you have a great week!

These beater that we are going to take the paddles off of for the manure spreader, they are in a lot better condition than the ones that we have now!

Went to see Sirocco and the trainer said that he put a hose to him after he road him and he didn't do bad with the hose (Shock)! He told me that he just needs a firm hand and he just didn't know what to do when someone tries to steer him. He will be working on that now. He said he got in the saddle and he wouldn't move, he would kick and he would just stand in place. I couldn't believe how much he has mellowed out already just from being handled by someone who is not a push over! (like me)
It was a beautiful day, in the 80's, which I will not complain about! Hope you have a great week.

Not much happening, been sick the last couple of days, seemed to hit me all at once. Today I am feeling a little better but still have the feeling like my throat is swollen and the side of the neck is sore. Was looking out at the bird feeder and saw a male and female red-breasted grosbeak. That was pretty awesome. I tried taking a picture but my camera didn't want to focus on the birds, it wanted to focus on the grime that is on my windows!
I have started on some rag rugs for a client and will have those done hopefully early next week. Next week is graduation week, also. I have three awards that I am receiving Thursday night, then Friday night is the commencement exercise for graduation. I am so excited. I have been glad that school is done, even though I do miss learning. I am glad that I did get my degree, it has helped me get my own business started and hopefully make a success of it.
Not a lot going on, just the normal day to day workings of life. Hope you had a great week.
