Hopefully... good things are happening here! V is negotiating with a potential new freelance client. Woot! This would be a fabulous thing for us. His freelancing work has been steady but minimal since he lost a subcontract (the original contractor lost the account because of the client's financial outlook) last year.
So, because of that finances have been tight recently, especially since we're helping Justine with tuition. (Good thing we've got a pantry and freezer full of food!) But, an additional source of income would be quite welcome. So send good thoughts his way.
We're happy that Justine's package arrived yesterday. She evidently has declared me 'the best mom ever', LOL! Amazingly, the thing that touched her most of everything I packed in there was not the cookies or the package of dark chocolate... it was the little bit of candy from the HS homecoming parade. Awww....
Other than that, not much is going on here.
Work has been busy and I'm looking forward to a 4 day weekend coming up. We hope to be painting in the library since V has finished the drywall back there and it's ready to go.
Many of the chickens are molting furiously. V and I got one chicken saddle deployed on River (who needed it the most)... he held her, I snapped it on. We also put one on Abbi but it was too loose and she kept pulling at it, so we took it off. I've shortened the straps but we haven't put it back on her yet. I need to get more snaps and make a couple more. I've noticed that Helen is looking pretty bare on her back as well. Egg production is WAAAAY down. I only got one egg today and only three yesterday. But at least they should be feathered out again by the time it gets really cold.
It's raining again. Hoorah!
