On Tuesday, Richard said: 'Ya ought to do something with that chicken in the basement fridge. What day did we butcher them?'


Me: Uh, I don't know. Tuesday? (my day off)


Him: A week ago?


Me: Nooo! (hmmm) What day is it?


Him: Tuesday!


Me: Oh....No, it wasn't a week ago, but I thought we did them on my day off. We butchered chickens and THEN I went to work? Musta been Friday or Saturday. <shrug>




Then I remembered that a lady had shown up to buy some pullets while we were butchering. I HAD written that down in my little record book- '5 pullets--$25--March 27'. FRIDAY! SHEESH!




So, I figure if I start writing things in here a bit about what I've done for the day, then this can be one more place to go when I think: 'Now, where did I write that down at?' :24:




Today...(actually yesterday since it's after mid-night):


Jason (DS1-23) and I went to the elevator and got 100# goat feed, 100# rabbit feed, 100# layer mash, 50# barley and a bag of pine shavings.


Chicks started hatching last night so it's time to rotate chickens. There's only 4 chicks (14-18 wks old) left in the little coop, so I shut them out in their run and cleaned the coop. Put down some wood pellets and pine shavings and put waterers and a new feeder that Richard made me today IN the coop (usually the food and water are out in the run). Then had to catch the 4 little buggers and put them in, (cuz I guess they were afraid of the new bedding :rolleyes: ), and shut them in there. Then Jason and I crated the 23 chicks (7-11 wks old) that were in the large brooder in the barn and put them in the small coop with the other 4 chicks. They will stay shut in there until Saturday, then hopefully when I let them out Saturday morning they will have enough sense to go back in Saturday night.


Made some chicken and noodles out of the butchered roosters for dinner for Richard and Jason, then I went to work.


Pretty boring day, huh?

Most of what we do every day seems "boring." But you know what? It's the little things in life that often are most significant. How we spend our days in doing our work, prepping, taking care of families, trying to juggle all the stuff we must do and keep it all straight--well that's the stuff of real life, the stuff we would miss most if we got stuck in a nursing a home or something. So any time life is dull--rejoice! (Nothing BAD is happening in that case) Hugz!

What is 'boring' to one person is fascinating to another. My grandma showed me an old accounting book she found of her father's. It was amazing to sit there and read his accounts of 'Mr. Johnson - 3 layers, .25' Mrs. Wheaton, 1 dz eggs every week', etc. The note that warmed my soul though, "Saw first crocus today. 18 degrees out. Glorious purple color. Can't wait for spring".
