I’ve gotten behind again on blogging. It’s amazing how quick that can happen.
Life is fast, and sometimes I like to slow down and just enjoy the moments. But I don’t like it when it takes an illness to MAKE me slow down. Well, this weekend it took food poisoning to make me stop and smell the doughnuts. Although, I wasn’t in the mood to smell doughnuts or any kind of food! YUCK.
I’m fine now, and it was just a 24 hour deal… but it did slow me down (just enough to get behind on everything, but not enough to get a rest. don’t ya just hate it when that happens?).
Tonight at my girls Bible Study, I was telling them that Peeps had gotten much bigger. Well, okay, maybe not MUCH bigger… but some! And I reminded myself that I hadn’t posted her latest photo shoot that I did on Easter morning.
So, here she is… Peeps and her peeps!
And that is a regular (med) sized egg.
She pecked at the peep later and got her beak temporarily stuck to the marshmallow!
She is two weeks old today, and doing fine.
Still lives in the house under a heat lamp, but gets to go outside and peck around in the grass a little bit every day. She likes it as long as my hand is nearby to hide under or hop on.
The other six chicks are doing GREAT, and are being very well cared for by Bonnie. They are so stink’en cute! I let Bonnie and the chicks out of the pen today to free range for the first time. They all did great. Bonnie and one of the other hens got into a tussle because the hen got to close to the chicks… but other than that all went well.
Maybe tomorrow I will get a chance to go out there with my camera and get some good ones of those little cuties.
But right now, I need to hit-the-hay.
Hope you are all having a good week!
