Rise and shine! We're back in action this week after a great visit with family and lots of fun outings to enjoy our time together. 💕 Of course, that means I'm playing a bit of catch-up to make up for all the work that didn't get done during that time. 😂 With the end of the school term rapidly approaching, I'm working myself a bit ragged to finish papers before the deadline, and that has seriously impacted my sleep schedule. 😴 I'm not usually one to take naps because it often makes me feel more groggy and tired afterwards, but this week, I've taken to sleeping *whenever* I feel tired, and then waking up to get back to work--even if it's way outside of my normal routine. Do you take naps? Does it make you more tired, or do you feel refreshed afterwards? :
I'm so in love with this proud wrought iron rooster! 🐓 Not only is he a wonderfully unique piece of vintage farmhouse decor, but he just makes me smile with his funny facial expression as he gets ready to greet the morning! 📣 🌞 He's available in the shop at @my_eclectic_home in historic downtown Snohomish. Stop by to see all of the latest vintage goodies--you'll find this guy in the upstairs loft! 💗
We have a chicken that’s feeling under the weather this morning. I found our sweet girl Buffy still sitting on her roost an hour after the rest of the flock had left the coop. I picked her up and she feels a bit thin and seems lethargic. She has been laying regularly, just seems a bit tired so I’m giving her some of my chicken pick-me-up formula this morning and hoping it helps. It’s really just a spoonful of Greek yogurt mixed with our honey. I add in extra probiotics by breaking a capsule of acidophilus and stirring in as well. Raw honey is a powerful (and natural!) antibiotic. Research on broiler chickens shows it to be effective at helping them gain weight as babies. We used our honey to successfully treat a nasty case of bumble foot. Any other tips out there that could help Buffy?
