Once again a week has passed and it was a busy one again. Quail chicks arrived on Wednesday and are doing pretty good. We lost a few of what looked like the runts of the litter. Can't believe the amount of food they eat. They are fun to watch.
Picked a few greens out of the garden this week. Spinach and lettuce have have been on the plate for a while, but the first of the Swiss Chard was ready this week. We froze some and ate some. Had a few small potatoes.
Started tearing some siding off of an old house. Owner is going to bulldoze it this summer. Some pretty good old dimension lumber.Will use it to build a new chicken coop among other things. Some of the new lumber is so crooked it is hard to use sometimes.
Yesterday was our anniversary. Seventeen years. Not bad for what one person said was only going to be a 6 month fling! It has been a good seventeen years and a happy seventeen years. We have done a lot,(bought and remodeled two old houses that we have lived in), experienced the happiness of birth, ups and downs of everyday life and the sadness of pain of death. As I stated in another blog, I could have taken a different fork in the road, but I would not really want to be anywhere else sharing life with the one I love and hold in the deepest respect.
God Bless all who read this and may your week be prosperous.
