I was supposed to be using my downtime on the blog while our transfer to a new host was in the works to catch up on a lot of things. Instead I went and spent the weekend at a friend’s….and I wonder why I’m perpetually behind on everything!
My friend lives next to a mini-farm with chickens and goats…so we had some visitors while there! The Dadz and I are still considering adding goats to the farm in the future, and these guys were pretty cute.
There were some all black, and black and white chickens, that were very pretty. I can see us wanting to try different breeds, so our flock will probably grow in the future (that woman has 32 chickens!).
The blog transfer is still in the works. It got delayed a little bit but it’s still in process. We may still have a bit of downtime here, which I’ll try to use more wisely this time! We’re working on more than one review/giveaway post and some other things, but I don’t want to publish those until I know everything’s settled, so we might still be a bit more quiet than usual.
Thanks for the Motivation!
Thanks to everyone for their support and suggestions on my Exercising with Dogs – On Motivation and Consistency post last week. This morning dawned wet and humid. It had stopped raining but everything was still damp. But with the extra motivation I got from that post, I put my excuses aside and got right out there for my run, and the dogs’ walk afterwards! It was as muddy and buggy as I feared it would be on our trails, but we survived! I did slip a couple times on some wet rocks but I had wisely put my hiking boots on and they helped me stay upright.
My hubby was home from work and got to see what a process it is for us to get out the door! He commented that it looks like another workout in and of itself (dog wrestling 101). He might be right about that!
Next up will be working on that consistency and actually walking in the rain, and I hope to get the dog some raincoats soon. Does anyone have one for their dog that they love? I want something that covers their bellies too for that splash up that we get.
The chickens are getting so big and the guinea keets are growing too! The keets will be able to venture outdoors in just a couple more weeks, and the chickens will hopefully begin to lay some eggs around that same time. I’m excited to see the first one! I still plan to tell you more about the guinea hens as well.
My sister commented that our kitty Samantha hasn’t been on the blog much lately. My answer to that was that our little Sam doesn’t do much to write about! Sleeping and eating is about it, along with a whole lot of purring and licking when she’s getting the attention she loves. I’ll try to get some new photos of her soon, and she’s also due for her yearly vet checkup so we’ll give a report on her health, which is hopefully as good as it seems.
Hope you all have a great week!
