<quoted text> LMAO about the billboard. Great that Hubby is going back to go college. I regret having to drop out myself. Circumstances. Anyway, you all hang in there. It's difficult, but rewarding in the long run. Hope your plants are doing well. Nice to hear your good news;)
our frost this past week bit some of my beans but i planted so many in the bucket that i was more than sure i would have to thin them so really nature just saved me the trouble.... the rest are starting to climb a little. my peas and cabbage are doing great. i threw some watermelon seeds out on the hillside a few weeks ago but i haven't seen anything come out yet. hostas are already well on thier way to invading everything. verdict is still out on my peppers, some got sapped when i transplanted but i think i may get a few good looking ones out of it.

Lol. Guess we all need tarps like yours!! Lol
Those third shift days are rough. We lived with swing shift for too many years.
Congrats on the "back to school " decision! Classes will have their own challenge soon enough. I always enjoyed classroom time, but tests? Not so much!:-(
I'm afraid to look outside. Rain? Cold? I've got a small trip planned and just need to get up and do it. The light showing through the curtains is gray so not much hope for a sunshiny day..
im too chicken to leave the slogan on it so i spray painted over most of it before we got it tied on. knowing some of the locals out my way i would be afraid they would come with pitchforks and lanterns in an angry mob and torch it to the ground.

yes very excited about getting out of the third shift job! we have the craziest schedule and a lot of times he misses out on sleep to get things done. he has been at that job for six years and in the last three, you could really start to see it wearing on him in his hairline.

it will be a nice change to have him home at night and away during the day. last year he had to transfer to days for almost six months and got used to sunshine again so figured it would not be long since he had to switch back that i could finally talk him into school or he would be looking fir a new job. been trying to get him into it for years cause he gets to go for free using his g.i. bill entitlement, but he just never could decide what he wanted to do. im like.....go for political science for all i care! if you got a way to go for free...do it! we will be paying off my student loans for prolly twenty years or more! but im glad i didn't have to push and beg.... he will do better wanting to be there and it will be nice having him home at night.

For all the "Good Nights", Good Morning LOL

I wonder what project I can get into this week to justify my existence? Maybe I will go help that old 80 year old man repair some siding on his shanty.

If I just look around, I can surely find other ways to share my Blessings. The Senior Citizen's Center might be a good place to start looking and if I take the cook some eggs, she might have a treat for me and Dog. Wonder what day she will have apple turn-overs? or peach cobbler?

It's nice of you to help like that. Maybe, you'll get a tasty morsel after all. You deserve it;) I have babysat for free and done shopping for an older lady I know. It hasn't been much. However, I have two children at home so it's difficult to do much. I hope my prayers, thoughts and kindness Bless those who need them. I realize, they don't harm. Birds are excited this morning. Beautiful! You have a fine day, AW!

Sheesh. That spinning class still does a number on me. I'm doing two classes this week and next so I should see some good results. If the class is done correctly it eats up about 500 calories!

Betty- it will be nice having him around for the evenings and nights! It's scary to be alone in bed at night when the neighbors dog walks around the corner of your house with its 20 chain scraping and thumping against the downspout . Lol
And Misty. My better half comes home this week also. He's been living 12 hours away for the better part of three years. He was home 3 weeks last year and has been home one week so far this year.:-(
Well, Roaming. At least we didn't go straight into hot summer this year. But I do wish our days were in the mid 70's! Lol
AW. So u ain't got nuthin ta do?? Come on over! Thursday n Friday my Amish worker and I ( and maybe my husband if he gets home) are setting this little shed up and putting on new siding and new roofing for these chickens we plan to get. I think it's going go be the case of the $100. apiece eggs! Lol

Hi everyone!! Long time, again!!!

I'm overjoyed to see leaves on all of the trees and flowers starting to bloom everywhere! What a loooooong winter it was, huh?

Hope everyone is doing well. It looks like everyone has been busy outside. I enjoyed reading about the gardens and things that some of you have going on. Way to go!!

Still nothing from Blue though. And where is Hemp? It's unnatural for them both to be gone this long... Praying that things are okay on their sides of the rock..

Anne, don't fret over those $100.00 eggs. In the beginning it feels that way. But it'll even itself out. Not to mention the entertainment you get out of watching your hens every day. They're clowns and can make you laugh with the silly things they do... I initially had so much money tied up in mine that I thought I'd have been better off NOT having any. But during all the years that they've continued to produce eggs AND make me smile? Priceless blessings...
(And nutritious, naturally. Hormone free, fresh free range eggs? Nothing better IMO).

Okay, well, chat later!! Looks like everyone might be in bed right now. I'm always too late for a good chat here anymore it seems.

God bless you, everyone!!
Goodnight!

And what about Abliever? She has been missing for a while too. Yes, chickens can be quite entertaining. Mine free range only in the afternoons after collecting my eggs. The get layer pellets in the mornings and scratch grains at dusk to tell them it is time to quit free ranging and come home to roost. The Big rooster walks along in front of me, looking back to tell me I am walking too slow. LOL. The little rooster brings up the rear and making sure that no straggling hens get left behind.

It is funny to see how they choose the same roosting spot every night, with some hens making sure they get to sit next to the roosters. One likes to suspend and rock back and forth all night long on one of those orange electric cords strung across the top of the main building. I have baby chicks in the tool shed closest to the house, and an incubator going in my laundry room where I hope to have at least a 25% hatch rate with more babies in mid-May. Besides the entertainment, chickens are my part time job and gives me something to do. I sell enough eggs to town folk to cover the cost of feed and give away the rest in exchange for a slice of pies and cakes and such.

Good morning!!
It's a beautiful morning!...just like you said , Roaming!

I hadn't even considered the entertainment value of these chickens! A little bonus there. Nope, I think I will set a bench out by the little chicken shed just for that purpose. After all, got a couple chairs down by where I feed the fish, a glider by the trampoline, rockers on the porch...soon, a bench by the chicken coop! Green Acres all over again! Lol AW, you seen to have quite the operation going there! i won't ever get that far with mine but I'm a little envious if what all you've done.
