Where did the week go??

I guess I need to get on the ball - I didn't realize my last post was on Tuesday!!  Sorry!!

The week just got away from's not like there was anything crazy going on.  I didn't have to commute to the big city since my boss was out of town.  But things were still quite busy at work.  I didn't really get much done around the house or yard either, so I'm not sure where the time went!

About a week ago, we noticed some of the blueberries were starting to ripen.  Actually, there was one really big, fat, blue, juicy looking berry that I wanted to pick so, last night, I noticed there were a few more looking the same.  I said to my husband, I think we should pick these before they rot on the bush.  He agreed.  We picked the 6 or 7 ripe berries, and proceeded to eat them, right then and there!  Sorry - no pics!  There was no time to run and get the camera in the split second between picking them and eating them.  And let me tell you - were they ever DELISH!!  There are a lot of berries on the two bushes that are in varying stages of ripening.  We are looking forward to picking - and eating - many more this year!  Love them blueberries :-)

Today, we will be putting more sand in the chicken run.  Hubby stopped at the home improvement store on his way home and picked up twelve 50-lb. bags.  Only cost $4 - I had a gift card from Christmas that I had not used yet as this particular store is pretty far from us - he happened to be near one while working and put the card to good use.  The chickens will be LOVING life once we get it all in there!  Gotta have their sand baths!

I hope everyone has a great weekend, gets everything accomplished that they set out to do, and makes time to just relax!!

It's amazing how quickly time can fly! I'm anxiously waiting on blueberries too. They are absolutely the best when fresh. I know your chickens love their sand, too!

We have some more blueberries getting ripe - my husband built a little thing out of scrap 2 X 4's and deer netting to keep the birds from getting them first :-) And yes - the chickens LOVE their new beach!
