No this post doesn’t really have anything to do with things/people/animals etc. that are in meinen Herzen. I just wanted to use a German title, and that sentence came to mind.
So. Here I am. Very tired still…thanks to my cat who is now cuddled up on my lap. Let us start with Monday.
Monday evening was the Azure food truck. We were there from 8:00pm till 10:00pm. 95% of that time was spent lifting big heavy boxes. We got home late obviously, and crashed.
The next morning, we had to get up and do our chores as well as readying the books for the homeschool curriculum and book sale that was going to happen that morning. We had to be there by 8:30am which failed to happen. You see, here are our chores:
Mum’s chores – she feeds the 35 or so butcher chickens, waters them. Feeds the layer chickens, waters those. Gives the newest baby chick and her mama food and water. Gathers the eggs. Gives food to the banti chickens, as well as to Duck. This process takes her at least 20 minutes, usually longer. It doesn’t sound too complicated, but those who have chickens most understand, right?
My chores: feed the deck cats ( these are the cats that hang around the deck. Yes, they all have names.) then bring food out for Sassy, her kittens, her two adopted kittens, as well as Noah’s cat Ferdie, who gets locked up with Bunny at night. Yeah, interesting huh? I let out Sassy and her four older kittens, and feed them out side their cage, then give the two little kittens (there used to be 3. One recently died.) soft kitten good inside the cage. Then I let Ferdie out if Noah isn’t out to do it. Next comes the rabbits. We have only 3 at the moment. First I feed Orange bunny (his proper name is.. Teddy I think.) then comes Thumper, and then Bunny. Next is waters. Have to give the rabbits all water, and cats.
Finally I am done with my barn chores, and then am off to pick a bucket full of grass, which then gets brought into my piggies. Next is feeding Nina, then the hamsters. All done!! That takes me about 20 – 25 minutes on a good day :D
That was probably really boring.
The book sale went alright. Not as good as a turn out as we all hoped. But what can ye do? Three people including us, sold books. About 5 maybe, people stopped by. Maybe less. We sold the most I believe. I even sold some of my books! Praise God :)
To make this post still somewhat short, I will just leave it at that. Today I believe we are canning. Fun times. :P
