Sapphire, how exciting to see your egg pipping. I want all the pictures you can get of the whole process. I'm not in a position to hatch eggs so I do it vicariously through the board.
Trish, great picture and I love the one chick standing up in the upper right corner.
Josie, your little mud puppy looks as happy as she could be.
HEChicken, I think you'll enjoy not working. Officially working, that is, because you'll find plenty of work to do at home! I've been lucky that my husband makes enough for us to live on and the mowing in the summer months really helps a lot, too. I was able to babysit my niece for years and we have a special relationship because of that time we spent together. I love puttering around the house and yard, taking care of my home and family. A lot of people talk about being bored if they had to stay home, but I don't find that to be a problem.
Hawkeye, I hope you had a great GNO. You certainly deserve a little time to just relax and enjoy life.
RVRoman, I can't have roos, either. Stupid city ordinances! He's a pretty bird and hopefully someone will be able to take him soon.
We did a bunch of planting yesterday and I may have undone most of what the doc did for my back that morning. We're trying to make it 3 weeks between appointments and so far, I haven't made it. This was the closest, though, going in Thursday and the 3 wk appointment was for Monday. I ended up taking a muscle relaxer for the first time since I've been going to her. It's better today, though, and I didn't do much physical labor. Watered the gardens since I have no faith that it will actually rain HERE. It may rain all over the rest of the state, but McPherson gets skipped a lot. DH finished planting the strawberry pallet.
I'm trying to grow tomatillos since I can't buy any plants here. This is the third year I've tried to start the seeds, I think. I don't seem to be able to start anything in seed pots and have it live long enough to make it into the garden. On my second planting this year, I did manage to get two starter plants that we were able to put into the garden yesterday. Only one had a true leaf on it, though. I caved in and bought 3 of those water tents you can put around plants that need warmer weather; maybe that will work and I'll get at least 1 tomatillo plant out of it. We planted the two I was able to start and keep alive, and put seeds in the ground for the third. We also had our first harvest -- 10 radishes!
