Tuesday Time to Tackle: Welcoming New Chicks

I received a call from the post office today.  A package was waiting for me!  I quickly drove to retrieve my awesome box of chirping cuteness.



Inside I found the most adorable creatures.




I carefully inspected the chicks, then introduced them to their new childhood home.


After drinking some water and trying out the food, they were ready to snuggle under the warmer.


Now all is quiet, at least until naptime is over.
  
Thanks for adorable fluff-balls.

  1. Oooohhh, I love new chick day! Their home looks so nice and clean...for all of an hour. I've never seen a warmer like that. Much better than the light hanging down! Although, I see it does have to be plugged in. We don't have electricity in the coop, so we wait a little longer to get ours. Of course, it's a lot warmer where you are than it is here.

  5. I remember getting chicks in the mail when I was a child. The post office was pretty noisy the day the chicks arrived.

  10. Last year we received chicks in the mail. I was thrilled to get that call from the post office. Good luck with your new feathered friends!

  11. I was about to ask where you get your chicks from and then I saw the box! We've gotten all of ours out at Odyssey Ranch, so I haven't experienced the post office call :)

    What breeds did you get? We've got New Hampshires, Cuckoo Marans, white Easter Eggers and Silver Laced Wyandottes... for now ;)

  12. So adorable! I have some eggs incubating under a hen right now - first time ever for me to do a hen-assisted hatch!

    I hope you'll stop by my blog when you have a chance. We share all kinds of backyard chicken keeping advice...and we're going to be giving away some of the new blue vintage-inspired Ball Canning Jars soon, so you'll want to be sure you don't miss that!

It's #RootsTech Giveaway Time!

In February of 2018, not knowing exactly what to expect, I attended RootsTech for the first time. What I learned is that RootsTech has something for everyone, from the most beginner of beginners to professional DNA genealogists. If you are interested in your own family story, come to RootsTech! RootsTech offers over 300 classes, amazing keynote speakers, an Expo Hall packed with all sorts of vendors, and evening cultural events. 

After an enjoyable experience in 2018, I returned in 2019, and even got my husband, John, to come one of the days to hear Saroo Brierley give a keynote address. 

Speaking of keynote addresses, this week RootsTech just announced that one of the speakers for 2020 will be David Hume Kennerly, a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer. I can't wait to hear his story!

RootsTech 2020 will celebrate its 10th anniversary, and is bound to be the best one yet! I have been delighted to be accepted as an official RootsTech ambassador. One of the perks is that I received a c…

Ten Things of Thankful: Dad's Influence Edition

Here in the United States, it is Father's Day weekend. I did not realize until recently that Father's Day was not officially made a holiday until 1972. 1972! Now, while I realize that many people consider 1972 eons ago, I do not. I'm glad that fathers have a day of recognition now, because they surely deserve acknowledgement. 
I thought for this week's Ten Things of Thankful post, I would list ten lessons I'm thankful my dad taught me.
My dad is a teacher. Not only did he impart his knowledge to countless junior high aged kids throughout his career, he taught--and still teaches--my siblings and me. He is not a preachy teacher; he's a humble man whose lessons I feel like I learned through osmosis.
When he would get home from work, we'd all sit down as a family for supper. Often, our phone would ring, and on the other end of the line would be a parent of one of my dad's students. 
Hello, Mrs. _______. How can I help you? . . . (an irate woman's voice is h…

Ten Things of Thankful: Summer Strawberries and Procrastinated Projects

You would think that by the time a person reaches my age, she would not be surprised by the passing of time, yet I find myself nearly constantly amazed that a certain amount of time has passed--whether that be a week, month, year, or couple of decades.
Earlier this year, I planted a garden. Yesterday I harvested my first strawberry. Earlier this year, I also planted fuchsia starts, and now the flowers are blooming. How is that possible? (And why am I surprised?)
Sometime around the turn of the century (and it still seems strange to use that phrase about the year 2000), we bought a circa 1935 dresser. It needed some TLC, but had a cool curvy front. This past week, I finally got around to applying some Restor-A-Finish and Feed-N-Wax, and now the dresser still looks old, but not dilapidated. I still need to apply some hide glue to some loose pieces, but I'm counting progress as a win.
For as long as I can remember, I've been a saver of papers. It some respects, this is good. I'v…
