I did not get any more eggs on Saturday but Sunday my egg factory operated at 75% productivity! 3 eggs! It was pretty exciting, LOL. This morning I made dh's egg sandwich with the fresh eggs, but had to use 2 since they are so small. When I went out into the coop yesterday morning, boy they were all squawking up a storm for awhile. One egg had already been left. One hen was up in the top nest and telling me all about it. I checked back a little later and she left her gift. Later another one layed. After all that they calmed down the rest of the day.
We got started on DH's shop loft/shelf yesterday. Basically it's an extension of the loft that is above the bathroom in the corner, it will just carry on down along the whole wall, giving lots of storage space up there. He cut his boards and I stained them up for him with some leftover dark stain we had. He realized he needs some longer heavy duty screws, so he will go back to the lumber store today for them. It was a bit too hot to work out in the shop, but most of my time was spent in the garage (with doors open) doing the staining, so it wasn't quite as hot. At least the project should keep him busy for awhile.
I also mentioned that for next summer/flower season, I would like some pots or planter boxes in front of the garage and shop, in between the doors. It needs something there and he agreed. He said he will build some narrow tall planter boxes this winter and he should have leftover stuff to make them with or if he doesn't they won't be anything fancy or wouldn't cost too much to buy some lumber.
The Skecher tennis shoes I ordered from Target are going back. I didn't realize they are the fake laces, which is fine, except I have narrow feet and for some shoes I need to tighten them up with the laces. They are just too wide/loose on me. Not to mention they are such a cheap feeling shoe. So, I'll have to find something else and get ordered.
It's supposed to be a cooler 85 today and mostly in the 80's this week. That's much better than 100. DD and her hubby had all last week off and got quite a bit accomplished. They got their concrete patio poured. She found a nice 7 piece patio dining set on Marketplace for $400, they got a neat firepit with stones built, and got started on a pergola over one corner of the patio. This morning she said she is back to work - going through over 500 emails. Ugh!
I don't know if I'm imagining it or just wishful thinking but it seems this past week my mom has been remembering a bit better. She is remembering what group she is for dining/activities, she is remembering that there is a calendar she has to look at for what is going on each day. Saturday morning I told her about getting my first egg. She called me yesterday afternoon and asked if I got any more eggs. She's also remembering we are still waiting on the fence guy.
I'll leave you with a picture of some birds cooling down in the bird bath yesterday
