Another week has passed and so has March 2020. That is astonishing to me.
We have a lot of birthdays in the spring and with this “shelter in place” and such orders, we are not able to get together and celebrate our early spring birthdays and it is looking like our late spring birthdays won’t be either. So, when we are able to reunite and celebrate, it will almost be like Christmas. I just hope it is before our summer birthdays.
When we all get together, there are thirteen of us and my parents are both in their 70’s, so it is just safer for us not to get together right now.
I am amazed at how much the puppies have grown in the short time we’ve had them. I am also very glad that we got both a boy and a girl the same day so they have each other to play with.
We’ve had them three weeks and the difference is amazing. Heidi is catching up to Finn’s size. Of course, he’s getting bigger too. They really enjoy playing together.
Tiffany is doing a great job training them. At first she was just trying with Finn, since he’s a few weeks older than Heidi but she saw he was getting a treat for coming and she hustled right on over.
Tiff says the chicks have grown a lot in the week and a half we’ve had them too. Of course, you imagine there is a lot of growth from just hatched. We did end up losing three chicks, unfortunately but the rest are doing great!
The fruit trees made it through the freeze as far as I know. I have not gone and checked on them myself yet.
What are your plans for April? Other than planning for Easter, I’m doing a lot of reading. I’m really enjoying it. I’m pretty certain I’ll get the library books read before I have to take them back, considering they are closed for a while. I’ve read six books in March, starting two books that I didn’t finish before the end of March but already finished one as I’m writing this. So April is off to a good start.
I got a turkey ham from WinCo and scored a ham on sale at Aldi this week for our Easter dinner. I’m probably going to be making the Easter Story Cookies because I want them and some candies for fun. I’m not sure what dessert to make . . . maybe a baobab cake, immune boosting
Tiffany and I are buddy reading Dune together. One of us starts the book and reads two chapters and hands it off to the other, who then reads four chapters, thus leapfrogging over the other by two chapters. Then hands off the book back to the first reader who also reads four chapters and back again until we’ve finished the book.
Well, I’m off to read some more. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Until next time, God bless,
