Where has the week gone?
I wanted to write a full post since I am up late, having slept very early and am now up again, but I can’t find the keyboard we just bought for this thing. So I will peck at this screen for a bit before returning to bed.
Monday was spent clearing out the ducks shed, formerly chickies shed. I had known for several days TG&Y needed more space. Turtle had been telling me so, climbing onto the food container, pecking my leg and peeking over the side. Perhaps I was in denial over how fast they are growing. But, Sunday night, when she spread her minuscule wings, gave a loud PEEP and lurched for the top, I knew time had run out.
So, the next day I ripped out the cruddy old mustard yellow carpet, something I had longed to do for two years, swept up some ancient dust that had been hiding beneath it, and converted a chunk of space into a new duck pen. They love it.
TGandY, sorry the darn symbol button suddenly won’t cooperate, were thrilled. They flapped their teensy wings and ran around peeping like little maniacs…and then, THEN…they saw their POND that has WATER in it which they can access ANY TIME they want! Oh, the joy of it.
The pond, of course, is merely an old litter box. But hey, they don’t know that. Truth is, in just a few days they’ve already outgrown this, too. Tomorrow I will find a bigger pond.
Tuesday morning I was forced to do housework. Then there was my last drawing class. Then we went shopping. Both latter tasks took up the entire afternoon and evening.
Wednesday was cleaning up after the ducks, getting in a mile walk, cooking, running errands, and before I knew it it was evening and I was exhausted. I fell asleep at seven thirty…symbol button still not cooperating. Now I’ve been up for a while. Hopefully sleep will come again soon.
