New chick pics and a few other things....

Between my kids, cats, the dog, and my chickens - I've been really busy! I've also taken up some gardening and so far, it's going good. I can't wait to get the first fruits and veggies off of their vines!
Hopefully everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day and weekend. Mine was good. Had the family over for some good food and a few laughs! I've missed blogging lately. I haven't even started any craft projects yet. My hands are itching for the crochet hook, but I've just got so much going on. I have been looking for some new patterns and thinking about using up my "plarn" stash to make a cool tote bag for the grocery store or maybe a rug. Who nows? I always change things up at the last minute! lol
Well, I'm off to look at a few friends' blogs, so here are some new updated pics of my chicky babies for you to enjoy. They are getting sooo big!

Been sooo busy!

Well, I have to say that this may well be the busiest Spring ever for me! I'm not complaining - I am happy about it actually. I have two 4x4 square foot garden beds that are doing pretty well. I'm so excited about that! I have 4 baby chicks that are feathering and growing like weeds. They'll be out in their coop in a few weeks and I can't wait to watch them enjoy the outdoors. Gunner (my new dog) is doing well. We are still working on his discipline and training, but he's a lovable dog so I guess we'll keep him ;)
My cats are still a little anxious around the dog, but haven't cared about the chicks at all! That's a good thing. I hope it stays that way when they go outside soon. The little ones helped me plant some parsley and flowers over the weekend in some terra cotta pots that they decorated. They are such the artists! lol
Mother's day was good. I got to sleep in a little, hubby cooked dinner, and my children were here too! All in all a good day :) I hope all the moms out there had a good Mother's Day too!
I've been working on dejunking my house, so crafting anything has been put on the back burner. I need to make something though - I feel like I'm going nuts without a crochet hook in my hand or the sewing machine on! I'd settle for a box to decoupage right now. But with everything else and my part time job, it'll have to wait. Once I get the chicks outside and the bedrooms re-arranged, I'll be in good shape! Then I'll start my crafting again!
Well, I'm off to get ready for work. I hope everyone has a wonderful day!
Take care and Happy Crafting!!
