Maybe, Just Maybe

Some weeks you got it and some weeks you just don't. Being a year older now I am trying to take the good with the bad and not let the little things get to me as bad. For the past few weeks we have been rolling on really good, but this week has been a check in reality.

Like I said in the last post, the hatch rate from the big incubator at my Dads was good and we have another tray coming off at the end of the month full of the mini chickens.
The people around here are in love with these little, easy to raise chickens and I wish I could hatch out and sell 500 or more a month.

The geese are going to natural hatch their eggs any minute now and we are still waiting on the new pygmy goats to drop. They show all the signs of kidding and with a cool front moving in tonight I bet they have them. I am just worried about it.

The middle daughters birthday dinner was a hit last night. The wife made up some chicken fried steak tenders with mashed potatoes and gravy. And People wonder why I'm fat.

The weekend plans are:
I plan to make a run to the monthly trade days and get some rustic, metal handles so I can put on my wooden gates. Then stop by the flag store and see if I can get another Bonnie Blue flag because I have wore mine plum out.
I also want to look for one of those large dinner bells so the wife can let me know supper is ready when I am down at the barn. Lord knows I can't miss any meals.
Then maybe, just maybe if everything goes right I can start on the rabbit room I really need to get done before the 100 degree day get here. We can't let the rabbits get to hot because their fur will not look as good when we show so they need their own air conditioned room.
I tell you what, we better start making some money from these little fur balls pretty quick or they might end up being dinner.

I did get a flag in the mail that I plan to fly out back. I have been wanting one of these for a long time and now I can show it with pride.
If you don't know the history of this flag and the meaning of the rattle snake then you ought to look it up. It is well worth the read. 


  1. I now have flag envy! I've been wanting one of these and just haven't gotten around to ordering one, now I'll have too*wink*

    As hard as you work eating, or should I say gaining weight shouldn't be an issue, that is how I feel too, but if I look a fried foods I gain 5lbs. *wink* I blame it on a sluggish thyroid and since taking Iodine( and continuing my healthy diet) I'm beginning to drop weight ever so slowly. :o) Over the course of a couple of years I've lost 50+ lbs and still would like to lose another 30 lbs.

    Praying you get the rabbits room done before it gets to hot.

    Blessings to you and yours this weekend,

  2. Those flags are flying all over here in KY.

  3. Thank yall for commenting.
    Kelle, I am glad to hear your diet is working for you. I have chosen not to fight the inevitable. I am balding and I am fat. I'm not buying anything to make my grow hair so on the same note, I am not buying diet food either. LOL Good luck with your other 30. Thanks for the prayers on the rabbit room.
    SFG, I know they are popular and I guess that is why I wanted one. When I fly the rebel flag, people automatically think I am a raciest. This flag says what I want without all that.
