Talk Around Here

edited using Kim Klasesns 'Gratitude' texture

Daily correspondence between the Artist and I have taken a huge turn over the last few years.
Where once we were only driven by a concern on what to have for dinner,
witness yesterday's gibberish to see how far we've come.
:::::::::::

Him: I got.....Heat lamp, waterer, feeder, and ibuprofen at walmart. Chick grit and leg bands too.

Me: I asked for advice on my blog today. Someone suggested I try taking the current broody hen, replace the eggs currently under her with the chicks that hatch, during the night.

Him: Can u do that?

Me: A red light in the coop rather than a white light will stop pecking if hens are at each other all the time, and it supposedly works when different ages are involved as well.  I didn't know that about the different ages but I do know a lady who had some henpecking happening in her coop and it stopped as soon as she changed the light.

Him: Good thing I bought red. :)

Me: No, not the heat lamp, the actual light in the coop at the ceiling.
Him: Ohhhhhhhh

Later in the day...

Him: Lawnmower came! It has 4 wheel turning!

Me: Is that a good thing?

Him: Yeah, that's so I can turn real close to a tree. It wasn't supposed to have it. It's an expensive option.

Me: Ohhhhhhhh

Yep, we've come a long way.

~Happy Tuesday Friends~

What a pretty flower! Hope you enjoy your new fancy lawnmower!

Ha! Sounds like some of the conversations around here. Our conversations used to be about work or what we were going to do over the weekend now it's about the chickens, ducks or cats, getting out of debt and growing the homestead. I'm preferring these conversations much better!

That is such fun to read and just so typical of so many conversations between couples who've settled into a very nice life with similar goals:-)

Ha! Sounds like our conversations... although lately ours center around planning the garden fence (from my last birthday) and the irrigation system he's planning. This morning on my way out the door he told me his "something-something-well tip fitting" should come in the mail today. Exciting stuff :)
