I just switched over to wordpress so I apologize for anything wonky.
If you notice something *off* please let me know!
The part of hatching that takes the longest is from the initial ‘pip’ to when they break the shell all the way around. After than it goes pretty quickly. There is a lot of flailing and some nasty looking membranes. All six of these eggs hatched and they were moved out to the barn earlier this week. If all goes well we should have some turkeys hatching next week and we needed the tub.

Summer Blog Challenge – Nicknames:
Beans – My dad’s parents sometimes me that because I used to play with a jar of beans
Rosie – My dad’s father calls me that because my middle name is Rose
Quack – Long story but that’s what Mike calls me (it’s a reference to ducks)
The two mullberry trees (here when we moved in!) are covered in little spiky baby mulberies
The new currant bushes have a few flowers here and there. I’m making some deer-deterring cages later this week and I’ll be sharing them soon.
Make sure you stop back tomorrow! Party goes live at 4 pm EST
Next time you do something that makes your significant other ask what the heck you were thinking, all you need to do is say:
At least I didn’t put cows on our lawn.
In my defense, most of the fence was already there when we moved in.
AND it’s really overgrown.
AND it’s to wet to mow.
AND gas is expensive.
AND I’m terrified of our lawn mower
Really. It was the right thing to do
But it screams her name
If you put your nose up to the screen that’s what I wake up to every morning
Finally, after 6 days in the hospital, my sister is home.
Gallstone pancreatitis and a potential case of C. diff meant baby juggling (not literally) for the entire family. By the way, if you happen to take a baby to a restaurant and don’t immediately know how many days old he is people will assume you are the Worst Mother In The World. When you tell them it’s not your baby they will assume you stole him. It’s important to mention you’re related!
She’s only 21 but I had mine out when I was 22. My mom and dad both had theirs removed as well. Must be genetic….
Anyway! I haven’t had a whole lotta time for crafting this week so I’ll just be sharing some fun pictures instead.
If I still dyed my hair I would want Sophia’s color. Shes
a little shit very, very pretty (should cut back on the white eyeshadow though)
I admit I over edited this one. But I like the ‘feel’ of it.
Do I sound like I’m in high school art class?
The eastern fence line
(yes, those were telephone poles at one point, no idea why they are a fence now)
Soon to be lilac
Everyone is all up in everyone elses business
By the way…
How do you feel about Alfie’s super manly collar?
