An egg in my pocket. . .
The other highlight is not breaking the egg I put in my coat pocket. I bent over to get some hay and almost forgot it was in my pocket. That would have been disastrous.
Hubby and I came to a decision on the meat birds.
We are not ordering this year. I'm hoping what's in my freezer will last until fall, and we can "ponder" on fall meat birds. We haven't decided on layers just yet.
I'm sure a few kiddo's will be happy this spring. They don't particularly like helping with meat bird chores.
One day left of the month, and I'm still reading my current Hemingway book (left). I have one more in my books stash, and then it's time to check the library. I'll admit, I haven't been in the mood to read. I have to be in the mood.
I took a "sneak" peek photo of my next floor rug, but forgot to load it. I guess I will just wait until it's finished.
I printed off two more scholarship applications for our 18 year-old. She asked for help, but now she is bombarded with homework on top of applying for these. She is still a senior in high school, and taking another college class on top of it.
I asked her if I earned any "Mom" points with her yet. I bet she never thought I find so many so quickly. Now, let's hope she gets some of them. Her room at the college is already secured. The food card cost is astronomically high. However, it's the only way to really eat there, especially the first year.
