....taking those, somewhat larger scraps of yarn, and putting them to good use. These will be shipped to New Jersey for those in need.
Thanks to my son and telling me he saw clumps in the chicken feed, we immediately got rid of it (too late to return it), and started giving the hens apple cider vinegar. We may still lose one hen, but thank goodness he noticed something wrong with the feed (worms, most likely came off the truck that way).
UPDATE: The hen died. :(
The kids are helping me finish up a few ornaments to put up on my S.C.R.A.P. blog. My 16 year-old put the eyes, nose and buttons on the one I posted today.
Is it worth it? You know....those crochet projects you want to sell, but take 3 days to make? These ornaments take about 2 days to finish (considering my chores I do in a day), and one day to block. I'm not sure these are prudent to my time, in regards to selling.
On another note, we tried a coffee mix, to test it out for gift giving. It's called Merry Mocha Coffee. I could not find the instant coffee I wanted, so this tasted a bit bitter. We added a splash of peppermint creamer, and it tasted okay. It's not the best, but then again, it could be the instant coffee.
