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!

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
