Yes, we decided not to work on the tractor shed yesterday after Vick was outside talking to a friend who dropped some grapes off. Vick mentioned that she was sweating terribly just standing there talking and there was no way we could work in that humidity. With that, we did other things inside. I worked on the new web site I’m designing for a very nice lady called Chef Gail, from Long Island. It was a fruitful day for her, even though she didn’t realize it because I go a really good start on a nine page site for her.
We now have two new turkey chicks with Mama(s) out in the grass happily pecking around. The other five eggs in the incubator are close to hatching I do believe, because when I added a little water this morning, I heard cheeping in the eggs, so there is a viable possibility of five more chicks. We are leaving these chicks to the mother to raise them, because we haven’t had any luck what-so-ever with caring for them. The three that hatched and we took away to put under lights and care for all died as of last week. In a case such as this, we might as well allow nature to take its normal course and they will survive or they will not…but any way you look at it, it will not be something we have done. The eggs were put in the incubator because the two hens left the nest with the first hatchling, leaving the eggs to chill by not returning to them. We candled them and seeing movement of live chicks, we opted to put them in the incubator for their last part of life’s journey of hatching. We immediately return them to Momma(s) as soon as they are dry and fluffy. So good so far!
I enjoy being on the farm…seeing life emerge…and death remove he old and sick. It is a good life and can really be appreciated by viewing the many wonders of life and how the animal world evolves. It is us that God chose to be the animals’ keepers…to care for them, protect and use them for ourselves. Life on the farm makes perfect sense and we love it.
I truly believe we need to stay out of this one and let them kill one another if they want to. Protect America, because neither side over there seems to be in the right and we shouldn’t get involved….especially with cannibals!
I pray for the world and that God will turn things around in the United States for us all…and protect us from terrible, underhanded, hateful people and politicians.
