Time flies.....


The week has flown by. Theater, chicks, building a coop, moving Wesley home, preparing meals. My studio has become a base for building the coop, my upstairs weaving and jewelry space is storing all of Welsey's things from her college house, my office space holds her mattress, desk and dresser. There is no space for making right now, no time for making. Only family and animals are getting my attention right now. One day there will be time for making, now is not it. 


Our power went off yesterday, the chicks got scared. I made a little nest with a blanket in my lap and they slept there until their heat lamp came back on. They have to be in 95 degree warmth right now, so  my body heat had to do until we got the power back. It was a nice time to be still. The rain fell hard all day, Wesley napped, the chicks napped, I read. It's good to have a stillness day.......

This was my great grandmother's lamp. Every time I use it, I think about the times she must have sat by this lamp to sew or read or just rock a baby, she had 10 of them. More work than three chicks and a grown up daughter, that's for sure!

Sometimes you have to play mother hen. It does sound relaxing and comforting in this scenario.

I was so excited to see your baby chicks. Many years ago I had chickens and I just loved having chicks.
I just wrote a blog post (finally) and mentioned that my grandmother had 10 kids! I really don't know how they did it. I was so busy with just my one and only.

The chicks are glad you're a hot momma.
