    Boredom = lack of imagination

    You are going to get an earful from all of the old fogeys on here about being bored. LOL I never once told my parents when I was young that I was bored. It simply meant a much longer list of chores. And the list from the start was not one I was going to finish that day.

    I'm prolly gonna sit in the Nursery (bathroom) and watch chicks and ducklings in the brooders for a good portion of the time.

    Oh, I'll probably TOUCH them some, too, not just watch 'em.

    I might wash my dishes. I will probably take some time to break down all the boxes in which shipped hatching eggs arrived. I will also set some more eggs in the incubators.

    Then, if I get tired of any of that work, I will open yet another box and break out the brand new DYSON vacuum! I'll need it - especially for the cookie crumbs.

    'Course, I need it for the pet hair and feathers everywhere, but I do intend to snack on some cookies over the weekend.

    The rest of the time I don't spend watching chickens in the rain, I bet anything I'll get involved in a good read or three.
