It has come to my attention...

By much yelling and squealing...

that we just got our first two strawberries of the season!

And today I ordered six more chicks which should arrive Monday. I know, I know, I said I was not going to have any more baby chicks unless there was a real MamaHen around. But ya'll, they were so cute and cuddly and they neeeeeeeedddddd me.

Plus, we need more eggs. They are selling like hotcakes and we need a lot just for our personal use. So, as of Monday afternoon I will be checking temperatures and little chicken bottoms and hearing little "peep, peeps" all through the night.

Thank you all so much for the hungry boy advice. I think the bread and jam idea is great! I have a bread maker, I can just start a loaf in the morning. If I can remember. And I have got to get better about a big breakfast. What kind of MamaHen am I??????

Tonight I am having an at-home movie night with Sweet Hubby. This week was super-busy and I am ready to get the kiddos in bed and then begin the movie-watching. Who am I kidding? I am usually asleep 20 minutes into the movie. Do ya'll have any idea how many movies I have NOT seen the end of?

Anyone have any exciting weekend plans?


  1. I hope we can get out and plant peas and beans this weekend. It's been super rainy....

  2. Jill, I don't know yet. It really doesn't matter, I will just go to sleep. Are you feeling all better?

  3. I also think you making bread daily is a good idea. As I love to eat it and smell it when I come over.

  4. I get to go on a "date" with my hubby to pick up a deck my mom is giving us for the pool she gave us...


  5. STRAWBERRIES! Super important.

  6. I need chicks too! Even though I don't want to take care of them either ;)

    Did you get my email? I'm interested to hear from you! XOXO

  7. OOOOOH - a relaxing movie night sounds fabulous! I totally need that too.
