I kept trying to come up with a good April Fools Day thing to post on Facebook all day today. I was going to tell everyone I ran off and got married or something, but I figure I'd either give a few people a heart attack or nobody would believe that for half a second anyway. ;-)
Hoo wee, where does the time go? April? Crap! I need to do my taxes! So much for getting them done before April this year. Sigh. Let's see, what's going on:
Chickens: Batch 1 produced 4 chicks, all from the Blue breeding pen. There are 2 Blues, 1 Splash, and 1 Brassy Back, which I'm not sure I can explain but I'll try to if it happens again. Batch 2 is hatching right now. In candling the most recently set batch of eggs (batch 4), fertility is excellent in 3 pens and horrible in 2. Perhaps this sunny weather will help.
Weather: Oh my. Last week it was like January, cold and rainy and trees falling down. It's suddenly summer. Mid 80s, shorts, flip flops, sleeping with the windows open... It's a tad overkill for early April, I'd like some spring before we get into that! Give me mid 80s in July and I'll be thrilled.
Olin: still having allergy issues, still chewing hair. He's off prednisone, and has been on a low dose of benadryl for the last few days. I think I'll need to increase that. I've seen him chewing the bottoms of his feet more lately. Wondering again if it's an allergy to something he's touching or breathing... Poor punkin.
Scrimshaw: after much discussion and deliberation, the images for the dragon knife have both been approved. Color versus b/w was thoroughly discussed, and in the end the decision has been left in my hands. That's a tough call, but I know what to do. What will I do? Guess you'll have to watch and see. :-)
Other things: I'm working many many hours on a "labor of love" project. It started as a small fix, and blossomed into a full blown artsy fartsy thing, because goodness knows I can't go halfway on something if the potential exists to make it awesome. I'll post this on April 16th or shortly thereafer. ;-)
Other other things: uh, random photos?
Blackberry pie tonight! Yum!
Macro photos of soap bubbles, that may have been the most fun I ever had washing dishes...
