Weekend Drive & Still No Baby Chicks
We went for a drive this past weekend & passed by this beautiful old log home. Another dream home to me. We visited an antique shop just to look see what they had. So many great old items I would have loved to have brought home with me. While there I saw a rag doll & some other prim craft items that were unpriced. After asking the prices the shop owner said he carries some handmades to help bring business in. He said most of his customers are women & they eat up the prims. He said the doll was the last one he had because the lady he purchased them from was no longer making them. I talked to him about my dolls a bit. He was interested in seeing them & asked if I could bring them in next weekend. I am really praying he will like them & sell them in his shop.
We stopped at another Tractor Supply Store & they had one breed of baby chicks. There was no sign posted on a minimum of chicks to purchase. As Sam & I waited to be helped we spied such a cute one in the trough. We got our turn & was told we could not purchase one chick but had to purchase six chicks. Still no baby chick to take home to put in the brooder. I thought the chicken coop was going to be the hardest thing for us to acquire. I guess I was wrong.
The rain turned to freezing sleet & snow over the weekend & covered the garden pond as it froze over once again. Today there was mud every where that the snow was not covering. When will winter end? Not soon enough for me. It has been a long one. Off I must go to pick up my daughter from her work.
Blessings Til Next Time!
