Chick Preschool

Once again it was preschool day for our chicks.  We currently have 18 two week old meat chicks in one of our two coops.  Four of those little ones got to make the trip to two preschools this year.  The kids thought that it was cool to watch how they drink and there were lots of ews as the chickies pooped a lot because they were nervous.  They weren't used to this much commotion and tried to all climb in my lap and up my arms to be safe.  By the second stop, the chicks were old pros and didn't seem to mind the noise.  They were even checking out the ants running around on the sidewalk and trying to be big kids.  All the way home I didn't hear one peep.  All 4 of them were sound asleep in the carrier.

Surgery Rehab

This has been a LONG spring and start to summer.  To start it all off, spring was really poky this year and than I discovered that I had a herniated disc and ended up having surgery 3 weeks ago.  My poor garden is very green because of it.  Green because it is covered in weeds. Taking it slow is really hard for me to do.  I feel great, but have to remind myself that I still have restrictions.  Restrictions are not good for a Northwoods girl.  Don't bend at the waist or twist and turn wrong.  Don't shoot the bow, because that is twisting and turning.  Don't lift more than 20 lbs. (at least I am finally up to 20.)  Don't mow the lawn (because with our lawn - lots of hills equals lots of twisting and leaning.)  As you can tell, I am not one to sit still.  It is even hard to sit still long enough to right on this blog.  Well, off I go to do some rehab for my foot/back.
