I am still alive, lol
Anyhow, we have been working outside lots, our front porch has the roof on it and just needs the eavestrough on. Then I am going to decorate it! My husband bought an antique 1948 ford 8N tractor for us to use around the farm for smaller chores. He got a plow put on it and has been trying to work up an area for a veggie garden after he gets home from work each night. My flower gardens are coming up nicely and I have purchased some shrubs to plant along with some more perennial plants. We still have most of our chickens although we lost one hen due to something grabbing her when she was in the wooded area and my favourite banty hen Martha was killed by something that beheaded her and left her on the front lawn :( Than my hubby accidently ran over my all white americauna hen last week when he was backing up the truck. For some reason, the chickens like to hang out under the vehicles and do not like to move out of the way. ***sigh***. I am now working on getting my business started working at home which takes up some of my time as well, but being able to work at home is great! The kids have been busy raising money for The Cops For Cancer fundraiser by doing a readathon.For such a small school, they raised quite a bit of money!!
I am slowly losing weight for the National MPS Society charity, working out to Shaun T and his hip hop abs dvd, something easy for me lol, and fun and I am losing inches!! The weather today was chilly and windy, it almost felt like winter without the snow. I almost had to put my mini gloves on because the chill bothers my Raynaud's syndrome and my fingers go bluey white and numb briefly. I cannot wait til summer gets here! Oh well, the weekend is looking good although my husband has to work Saturday and is on call for Sunday, busy time of the year when everyone needs their septic tanks emptied :)
Tomorrow I have more planting to do and weeding and I am on my own so will make things easier to do.
Guess I should get off to bed soon, thought I would stop in and say hello! Thank you Steph for emailing me to check and see if things were okay! You are a true friend!
Hoping you are all having a great week and Happy Friday tomorrow!
hugs and blessings, Trish
