It's GORGEOUS outside, if a bit warm, in Dallas. Very difficult to return to the office after that hour of freedom known as "lunch." Come on weekend!

cynical its only tuesday. Are you going to torture yourself by dreaming of the weekend for the next 3 days. That's the psychologist in me talking.
Denton would be great so nuisance can attend.
Anyone have information on the LBJ grasslands? Just to compare and keep our options open. Shalom

I know they are in different stages of development b/c she's been sitting on them for almost 2 weeks and the other hens are still in there laying eggs in her nest! I candled 3 random eggs just awhile ago - full of veins. There are a couple that will probably hatch in the next few days and the later eggs still have a couple of weeks to go. Oh well = More chickens for the freezer!

DBA, those of us stuck in an office 8 hours a day live for the beautiful weekends and days like today!!! My horses are out enjoying this beautiful weather today and tomorrow before it starts raining!

If anyone is in the area and wanting to find something to do on Saturday, my church is putting on a Hoof n'Foot Rodeo (Horseless Ranch Rodeo) It should be quite entertaining, especially if it's wet and muddy:) It starts at 3:00.

I try not to let my hens do that .. (lay on top of a setting hen) .. because the setting hen will typically only hatch for about two days and any eggs that haven't hatched she will typically get up and abandon. Besides, the original eggs will sometimes fail to be incubated properly because of the interruptions and too many eggs to properly sit on.

Once I have a hen "hard sitting" .. I cage her to keep the other hens from adding to her nest.

Those are good fun, kc, we've had a few at our church too..

I used to live for the weekend, then I heard a very well respected (in my heart) bible teacher talk about how if we EXPECT weekdays to be LESS than weekend days ... they will. We should be living EVERY day expecting God's best...

I have a whole new perspective .. no more "Monday morning blues" for me! ....and many times the weekend sneaks up on me because I'm not so focused on it!

That is so true TG, thanks for the reminder:) Hope everyone has a Wonerful, wonnerful, wonderful Wednesday!!!

Also we are having a Jam session and an ice cream/dessert social on Friday night at the church as well.

Our church band has been asked to play at the High School Senior Baccalaureate on June 2 and the District Assembly for the Church of the Nazarene in July:)
