Lots of pictures

Good Morning-

Today is another rainy day.  This week I spent a lot of time working on putting up edging around the house and deck.  There was some edging up, but it was ugly and all overgrown with grass.  I am laying down bricks and rocks for edging...however, I ran out of bricks that we had, so now I have to figure out how to find some more.  It is looking nice and makes the house feel more feng shui.  My husband laughs at me with my feng shui, but there is truth to things needing to be in a certain place to feel comfortable and good.  I posted some new pictures so everyone can see what is going on lately. 

Henrietta is still in isolation.  Her eye is looking so much better, but not healed enough to put with the other chickens.  I read you can put roofing tar on the area the hens keep pecking because they won't like the taste and it will get them to stop.  I am going to give it a try...I will let you know if it actually works.  I think she is ready to be with the others, so we will put her back with her "friends" this weekend.  Easter is tomorrow so we get to color our eggs with the kids today.  We have over two dozen in the fridge right now and we will probably get at least a half a dozen more today. 

This weekend we are going to stop and smell the roses.  We work so hard every day and every weekend, it is time for a break.  I am sore from working the past few days, so my body needs a break anyway.  Have a happy Easter everyone.  Bye.
