    Well, I woke up late (915!!!) wonderful hubby let me sleep in..
    he got kiddos up, dressed, fed...he started working on chicken coop..

    so I laid in bed til whenever lol..and slowly started my day...

    then motivation got me in gear...I cleaned:

    1/2 the bathroom; 13 yr old cleaned the rest
    the girls room..
    the living room..even dusted!
    bedroom - -mine..even washed sheets & vac'd...
    hallway...

    started some laundry -- which is a freak event..I DONT do laundry..thats
    hubbys job..he claims it...

    made a thermos of coffee ... my momma called and said we're bringing gramma (Great gramma to my girls)
    by today this afternoon sometime...which is a RARITY for my mom to come out and even a bigger RARITY for gramma..in 8 yrs she's been
    here 2 times..today will make 3...
    so I made a huge thermos of coffee and 2 triple berry cobblers...(one for my elderly neighbor..we try to take care of her..
    we always buy "oops too many" of these things..and give to her..she may be onto me after 8 yrs of it lol..but she doesnt
    say anything lol)...

    so girls have play clothes on..they are outside in the 22mph winds playing...its semi-warm..about 56...

    I have nothing else to do...I guess I could go clean the craft room..but thats a week project!

    anyway; waiting on mom/gramma to stop by..cause I want some of this:

    My mom came by too. She came to visit her chickens...not me. I am giving her some of my new babies as a Birthday gift, but she isn't ready for them yet.

    YUMMY! That looks good! [​IMG] We've gotten a lot done today too! With the soft ground, our dogs kept digging out of their pen, so we fixed them! [​IMG] Got a fence charger and wire put up around the inside bottom of their pen now.
    I washed 4 loads of laundry so far, and 2 loads are hanging outside. Now we need to finish building my incubator this afternoon! [​IMG]

    I woke up, saw it was 8, went back to sleep, woke up at 9 because my dog was licking my face (she does that to wake me up, when she has to potty) So I let her out, went back to sleep, had amazing dream/memory type thing. Woke up because she was barking and scratching on the door.
    Let her in, let my other dog out, went back to sleep again. Then woke up when the other dog was scratching and barking at the door.
    Let her in.
    Laid in bed for like another hour just thinking, then got up to take a shower.
    And now here I am.
    It is only 11:39 right now.
    Its weird i have been getting up early even when I wish to sleep in.
    So today was my attempt to sleep in hahaha.
    The rest of my plan for today is, watch horror movies, and cook.

    Was up by 6.

    Went out to check cows since we're calving now.

    Came back up to the yard and did chicken chores.

    Went in the house to have a few drinks of my first Pepsi of the day and check BYC.

    Went back out for cow chores.

    Helped move a truck and tractor to the field since hubby was going to plant oats this morning.

    Came back and checked the incubator.

    Checked cows again and found a cow calving.

    Started a load of laundry and did some housework.

    Checked cows again and the calf had arrived.

    Went to a neighbor's auction for a little while.

    Noon

    Went to my son's and babysat for some of the grandkids for a couple of hours.

    Came home and checked cows.

    Started another load of laundry.

    Cleaned up one of my flower beds.

    Interspersed throughout the day when I've been in the house I've checked BYC

    Now I'm going to make something to take to my husband for a snack since he's done planting oats and now is working some corn ground.

    It's 4 pm.
