Busy, Busy, Spring Break!

I need a break to recover from Spring Break! I have been babysitting a 9 year old, 8 year old, and a 3 month old all week. I am worn out! When they all went home, I managed to plant the garden, clean out the fish pond, and take care of my baby chicks. I also took the two older kids for a hike at our local park to make it up to them for giving so much of my attention to Atticus, my little nephew. Stitching? What's that? Ha ha. No, I haven't even had the time to think about stitching much less the time to pick up a needle. After Atticus goes home Saturday, I plan to take a looong bubble bath and then pamper myself with my cross stitch.

Ok, now for some more photos of my chicks! We put them in their coup that they will be living in to get them used to it. They were a little scared but I think they like it. It's still a little cool at night to keep them out there overnight but hopefully it won't be long. I can't believe how fast they grow! We started with 9 and are now down to 7. I'm hoping we don't lose any more. We may get a few more chicks after we get these grown and in their coup permanently. The white/taupe colored chick has been named Lady Gaga, the black one (Barred Rock) is Medusa, and one of the Rhode Island Reds has been named Jasmine. The others will probably be named soon as well. I want to get a rooster eventually just because I want his cock-a-doodle-dooing to annoy the neighbors. (Evil laugh inserted here)
