Not much going on here. Rick is farming with his friend, Jim, so Telly is pouting. It’s not fun having to stay home with Mom after you’ve gotten used to Dad being home. I signed Telly up for basic dog obedience class on Monday nights this fall. She is still depressed and missing Faye and since Rick has been home, I miss having Telly for company so I thought this class would be something fun we could do together. Until last night we were both bored because all we got to do was sit and listen to a lecture. But last night we got to practice doing exercises with our dogs and Telly loved it.
I thought I’d update you on the chickens. From 25 layers I get 12-18 eggs per day because chickens lay an egg about once every 30 hours. That’s a lot of eggs. Here are the 4 “dysfunctional” girls – I call them something a lot less flattering but wouldn’t want to print it here. They get lost so easy, can’t find the water or the feed, roost on the edge of a water bucket! and other nonsense. I’m always checking on them to see where they are or if they’re in trouble.
And I have two big goldies that I just love but they are real sissies and want to hide all the time so I put this shovel in the corner for one of them and this is where she lays all the time, behind it. I suppose she gets up to eat and drink but not when I’m around.
And Emma always wants to eat out of my feed bucket the minute I set it down even though I have just fed her in her own pan. JB has taken up residence in the barn this summer and only comes to the house when it storms. I wonder if he’ll stay in the barn this winter? Colton lives in the barn, too, and they don’t like each other much.
It’s very windy today and the rain is coming tonight so I want to finish up the houseplants this afternoon if I can. Someone said the other day that I’m a plant “hoarder” and I think that is an accurate description. I can’t throw them away so that, I guess, makes me a hoarder.
I am reading Etta and Otto and Russell and James and enjoying it very much!
Hope you’re all having a great week!
