Had roughly 7 hours of sleep, food, coffee, water and even planned dinner for tonight.
Can you believe my productivity?
I just generally being lazy. I could do more if I wanted.
In fact today’s plan involved washing up my laundry from the trip, but I got sidetracked when I found baby chicken #9 was laid out in the rain.
Slaughtering an animal for food is one thing, but walking away from a baby animal that is on death’s door is not something I can do.
I brought him in and held him in a dry washcloth for a bit so he could get some of my body heat. This may sound irresponsible but it was the best I could do—I gave the chick some human baby electrolytes (like pedialyte).
Drop by drop he was drinking and currently he is holding on. Nursing baby animals, especially birds is not a strong suit of mine. At least I can say he will be warm, dry and somewhat hydrated if I lose him tonight.
In addition to being the Nightingale to the chicken I am getting supper ready.
Dinner is a little bit random because I don’t want to have to make a full shopping list and spend hours at walmart just after vacation.
Supper is spicy quiche! I will put rotel tomatoes, onions, dry red pepper (+other spices), cheese, milk, and eggs in it.
Dessert is flan! I am using a box mix that we got ages ago at the salvage store. It has set up well in the fridge. Fingers crossed that it tastes as good as it looks.
I’ve missed my readers very much.
How have you all been?
