We brought our new chicks home yesterday. What a cute bunch. It will be awhile before we know if there's any roosters. We know someone who will take them off our hands if need be. In the meantime they will get lots of care and cuddles. I don't want to name any of them yet until we are sure who is who, although I'm a bit partial to one of the light orange ones I can't help but call Buttercup. Other names in the running are Lily, Violet and Blossom. There are seven all together, so I think we will be lucky if we get 3 maybe 4 hens out of the bunch.
Today I'll be planting a few more tomatoes, eggplants and radishes. I bought some strawberry plants and begonias that were 50% off at Lowes ~ just slightly wilted, hopefully will bounce back once in the ground. After gardening I plan on relaxing! I'm going to sit outside and read for a bit. I'm making an easy dinner of sauerkraut and hot dogs with fresh strawberries for dessert.
Tomorrow we are in for lots of rain, which calls for a slow cooking dinner (a roast perhaps?) and the day spent lounging about with lovely pots of tea and good books.
