Finally Friday!

This week seemed to drag on forever. I've had a hard time concentrating. This time next week I'll be arranging flowers for the wedding! There is still plenty left to do. I've got to put the finishing touches on the flower girl dresses that my sister made. The groomsmen's ties need to be made. I think one of my friends is coming over on Sunday to help with that. *A quick reminder--if you use the T9word shortcut when you text, make sure you proofread your texts first! I almost sent her a message that said "we'll have a sex fest" instead of we'll have a sew fest. That sure changes things, doesn't it?

Yesterday evening I planted some things in the garden. I got in 4 half-rows of corn. I'll wait a few weeks and plant the other half of the rows. Corn pollinates better in blocks rather than long rows. Hopefully we'll get some nice corn this year. And why is pollen spelled "en" and pollinate is spelled "in"? English is weird. I also planted a row of yellow stringbeans and one of green stringbeans. I'm not sure if I'll get more planted this weekend or not. It depends on how ambitious I feel.

Here are the chicken pictures! The lighting is a bit dim in the garage, so I can't get very good pictures. I'll have to bring the chicks on a field trip to the yard one day soon! Here is there new pen.
They're still pretty skittish, but they love to eat out of my hand.

And here's my favorite one. She's (I'm hoping it's a pullet) a frizzle bantam! I also have a black one, but s/he's not feathered out much yet.

I need a name for her (we're going to assume it's a "her" until we find out otherwise).

I love your pen for the chicks. Where did you get it? I can't wait to meet the chickies next week!
