The chickens are half feathered out again. They spent their first day outside. It was in the mid to high 80s. When i got off work at 5 it was 85 out haha. Although it was plenty windy to help cool. The husband and one of the boychildren got the coop finished. The kids brought the babies outside and now they are ready to come inside. Weeniedog is not interested thank you lordy lol! They are thus far safe.
I took a couple photos of some wee babies. I know i havent spent as much time with these two litters since they were born. Its been an extremely hard week for me work and emotionally. I have been feeling terribly run down and exhausted.
This is the rew x chestnut litter ( minus the rew in with the foster mother) Everyone is nice and fat and happy. :)
This fawn has some smut on it. Some darker shading that isnt desirable as far as color. But it dosent bother me any.
Ive also been working on spinning in the evenings. I have a lb or two of this mill processed mohair. I know its for the trade. but i wish i could keep this entire bat lol! I mean its a 50/50 split so i suppose i can keep 50% of anything i want. But i dont want to be rude either. I had to take a break from processing wool and spin something brainless. The plus side is that i can spin this extremely easy and fine. So here is a snapshot of that :)
As opposed to the wool im processing for her into textured yarns.
Lets see, This is tuurdy. Or Wilbur. But i call him turdy haha. B bought him with one of his first paychecks. Hes excited. Seeing i didnt want a turtle for a long time. I still dont really want it but i told him if he is going to take care of it himself. Then its his.
Turdy is obsessed with chasing cats. I had to pen him to keep him from chasing the kittens.
and a close up of his face. He is an ornate wood box turtle.
ok so i mentioned how exhausted ive been. Im on day 3 of 4 of my work week. Ive been feeling like crap. I know im having a thyroid flare and its exhausting. Normally a day 3 is tiring but not this bad. I actually stooped to drinking a monster. My manager bought it for me again. Shes a total enabler lol. Im doing everything i can NOT to drink them. But i also hate feeling THIS run down. My body hurts, i feel dead tired. That sometimes even typing hurts. Last night i took a bath and went to bed at 8! Tomorrow is my “swapped” shift. Im closing ( ive been opening this week) So i dont need to be in till noon. Which means i can take something and sleep. Full disclosure i ocassional eat pot edibles to sleep. But with the possibility of this upgrade and needing a pee test at work. Even though i dont know if i would need one and it is legal in this state. I wouldent want being sent for a drug test and that occasional pot use to have them tell me no. So im not taking that, even though it helps. Instead i took two benedryl last night right before i passed out. But it didnt help. I woke up about 20 times. So that sucks. Im hoping that POSSIBLY i can sleep better tonight. Or at least sleep in a larger chunk then 30 minutes. I go back to the doctor on the third to hear the test results for the MTFHR gene and RA plus my thyroid and basic labs. We will see how im doing. Will be hearing B’s test results as well. We already know he has EDS.
Oh Good news. I had a lady message me and wants 4 of my angoras. I posted some for sale and she wanted both mama does and two of the bucks :) Im really excited for her. Shes going to make lots of beautiful babies with the pairings ive made for her. Shes going to pay for and pick up the bucks. Then pick up the girls when i wean the kits. Im going to sell the kits as well. Fingers crossed i can find homes for them all. Im hoping i can get down to 8 instead of 30 something lol. I know 4 seems like a drop in the bucket when you consider how many i have. BUT its something!! I told her im off work on Tuesday ( my only day this week ) and can meet her then, otherwise it will be closer to next week. Up to her. But yay. Even two boys going to new homes, is 2 less cups of food a day. I need to get it down you know. Especially as these babies get older and need food.
Ok im going to log off. Its 9 and im going to head to bed soon.
