The chicks I ordered from Cackle should be here before the weekend, and I am like a child at Christmas..... I am normally all groggy and in MUCH need of coffee in the mornings as the kids are shuttleing off to school. This morning, however, I was wide eye'd and bushie tailed. I might sound a bit silly, but with all the losses we suffered this past year.... the chickens, my Dad passing, then my Mom passing just the 4th of this month..... I am looking forward to the new babies. They will give me something to do, as well as lift my spirits. Hubbie has even jumped onto the chicken craze and ordered some Saipan chicks from Ideal. He is so tickled with himself and building them a new coupe and run. He started it last night as soon as he got home from work. I think the cows are afraid we got more pigs, as they watched his movement until dark when they got bored with him and went to bed. I need some prayers for patience and maybe some suggestions as what to do with myself to get my mind off the babies coming.
