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.

  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!

Never Give Up Hope

Twenty-three years ago, a beautiful little girl was born. From the get-go, she was sweet, sensitive, and rather shy. She has grown into a young woman of whom I am so proud. She has worked hard to overcome challenges, and recently told me she is trying to face her fears, and asked me if I would write her story and share it here on the blog, in hopes she can inspire others through their own struggles. Although I offered to publish an auto-biographical piece for her, she wanted me to write her story from my perspective. At her request, and with her approval of this post, I share the following:
The phone rang, and the social worker on the other end informed me that a baby girl had been born 10 weeks early and drug-exposed. She wasn't ready to be released from the medical facility where she was currently staying, but would we be interested in being her foster-to-adopt parents? Of course! When John and I filled out our paperwork, we indicated that we were comfortable with a premature bab…

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. …

Six Sentence Story: Burst

The moment the church organist started playing the introduction to the hymn, the precocious toddler girl stood up on the pew. Music just moved her, and she was doubly excited when she realized she recognized the tune. Though everyone around her was opening a hymnal and finding the right page, that was unnecessary for her. 
First of all, she couldn't read, but second, even if she could read, she didn't need the words; they were etched into her memory. Finally, the organist finished the introduction and the chorister signaled the congregation to begin, but while the rest of the church-goers sang, "Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing," the sweet little girl belted out, "Go tell Aunt Rhody." By the time she got to the line about the old grey goose being dead, all decorum was lost as those around her burst out laughing.
