1) We had twenty people for Easter dinner here yesterday. Which is why I have no energy. But we do have a lot of leftovers, so at least I don't have to cook today.
2) We also took Cubby to church yesterday. The service falls smack in the middle of his usual morning nap time, so it required some complicated machinations to figure out a way to have an awake and not cranky Cubby for a whole hour. He was definitely awake and not cranky, but he was also not about to sit still for an hour. Or even stand in one spot. He made it about 45 minutes (with the aid of some hot cross buns the MiL had fortuitously baked for him), and then A. had to bring him outside to run laps around the church parking lot.
3) Instead of doing housework on Saturday, A., Cubby, and I took a family field trip to the Small City to visit the farm store and pick up the Easter flowers for the MiL's church. We also stopped on the way to get 24 Rhode Island Red chicks (surprise!). Which is why we had to go to the farm store, for the starter feed and a new bulb for the heat lamp.
4) That Subaru can carry a CRAZY amount of stuff. Specifically, seven large boxes of flowers, fifty pounds of chicken feed, 25 pounds of oyster shells (for our old hen--they need extra calcium), a few bags of miscellaneous farm store purchases, a box of chicks, two adults, and one toddler. Possibly also a partridge in a pear tree. I love that car.
5) The guy we bought the chicks from had some two-week-old chicks, so we got those. They were significantly bigger than the hatchlings we were expecting, so the tub we had set up for them was too small. Which is how A. ended up spending the rest of Saturday breaking up pallets for lumber and building a chicken tractor. The chicks are now located in the currently-unoccupied sheep barn in the paddock, where the dogs can hear them and smell them but can't get to them. How very frustrating.
6) The tomato seedling forest in the study is getting to a critical stage. I really have to transplant pretty much all of them to bigger pots. Like, now. And it's raining. Again. So I can either stand out in the rain to do my transplanting, or make an enormous mess in the kitchen. Decisions, decisions.
7) I have relevant photos to illustrate all of this, but they're still on my camera. And I now have even LESS energy, so the photos will just have to wait.
8) Is it bedtime yet?
