Brad was up and out of the house before I managed to get moving this morning. He went out to the farm to pick up Joshua and Jacob and take them with him to the feed store. They helped him unload the range cubes, sweet feed, and pellets and did a great job. Rachel came out and helped as well. He managed to get the three of them to work together on the job instead of making it a competition. None of them needs to be trying to lift a 50 lb bag of feed by themselves. They caught on fast and were done in no time.
I finally shook off my headache, got showered and dressed and went to Albertson’s to pick up our grocery order, C.J.’s Coffee Cafe for some breakfast to take home, and the post office for mail and a couple of packages. I’ll wear my Relief Band today to make sure I don’t start feeling nauseated again.
In about an hour the two of us are going back to the farm to pick up Rachel and make another run to the feed store. We’re trying to get Audrey stocked up during cold weather since she’s not feeling that great. It’s her turn to fight off the 24-48 hr tummy bug, bless her heart. And Sarah was in bed when we were at the farm yesterday. We stopped by to drop off the game cameras and saw David unloading supplies at the barn and went straight down to talk to him. We didn’t expect Audrey to come out and she really should have stayed in. She’s a lot better today though and she sent her dad home with chicken wraps for our lunch, another dozen eggs from her hens, and some homemade Chex Mix.
I’ve got a couple of empty egg cartons for her…found two partial cartons of store bought eggs in the fridge that had expired…in October! Yikes! I can’t believe I forgot about those eggs, but we’ve been eating fresh eggs from the farm for months now and they stay fresh on the counter at room temperature until we finish them. I got spoiled. I needed to toss out the leftover bones from my pot of chicken broth so I tossed the out of date eggs in with the stewed bones and chicken carcass and found a spot near the creek to dump it out for the wildlife to enjoy. An owl flew up from the ground across the creek when I walked across the yard and he/she will enjoy what I tossed out no doubt. In any case, the crows will show up anytime now!
Just looked outside…looks like the neighbor’s cat won’t need feeding tonight.
