I managed to get the blocks sewn together yesterday afternoon on the stars and nines quilt. Only one set of 4 got swapped around in the sewing =) I plan to head to Joann's today to pick up a cotton flannel backing so it is soft. Maybe I can get this one pinned tomorrow for machine quilting this weekend. It looks like we 'might' get a little cool front to kick the temps into the 80's..... might become outdoor weekend work between weeding and working on the 'new' coop since we can't intermingle the chickens until they are the same size. This works out ok, as we need to separate the chickens for a bit after bringing them home from the fair in February..... and we will have an area to separate out if anyone gets sick. Speaking of sick... Myrtle is separated in a recycle bin with a heat lamp and wire fencing on top as she had a respiratory infection. We got the antibiotic Monday and she is a lot more feisty now - she even flew up out of the cage when Emily took the top off to change out her water this morning! Still sneezing a little but her breathing is better.
I also knocked out a 1.5 hour online training for girl scouts that needed to get done before Saturday for our fall product sale. Now to do the training and set up the troop for Clover and Cheddar Up payments. Hopefully those are not as long.
Unfortunately 4 of the catfish have not survived in the tank. Seems the water PH went really high and they prefer a low ph. The last one perished this morning. We are currently changing out the water a little at a time to try and get the ph lower. I went out to get deionized water yesterday and picked up a few other things while at the grocery store. Got home and was missing a bag. Darn it - self checkout and left it at the store. Called and yup - they had it. I had to head back and get it.... it was the expensive bag - frozen shrimp, pork chops for tonights meal, can biscuits for last nights meal and a package of burrito's for the freezer for Gregs quick meals after getting home late from work.
