What I’ve Been Up To (with photos)

Long time, no see, eh? Well. Here is where I’ve been, in a nutshell. Erm. Eggshell.

Yes. Eggshell.

Because this happened.

I didn’t say anything because I didn’t know if the eggs were fertile, and I wanted to make sure the eggs had chicks inside first. πŸ˜… And then I wanted to make sure they were happy and healthy before giving an update, and now they are almost three months old and so big. I guess you all can expect a lot of chicken photos over the next while…

And then a lot of time has gone into gardening:

Aaaaand then I also met this kitten, fostered her for four days, and found her a lovely woman who wanted to take her home:

…and I found out recently that the kitten is actually a boy. XD The woman who adopted him works at my vet, so whenever I go to get meds for my pets, I also get updates on how the little guy is doing. πŸ˜€

Also, I’ve had days where I wasn’t up for doing much so on those days I read a lot. XD

This is my current reading stack, but if you want to see what I’ve been reading this year, here is my 2020 reading challenge page where they are all listed: https://www.goodreads.com/user_challenges/20906860

So I’ve had a lot on my plate. I’m aiming to ease back into blogging this month! πŸ™‚ But next month is NaNoWriMo and I plan to write the first draft of a 50K novel so we’ll see how blogging goes that month. XD I hope you all had a good summer – or as good of a summer you can have with covid around. πŸ™‚

  1. You’ve been very busy, Grace. It’s lovely to see your chicks and the harvest of your garden. I planted some seeds for the bell pepper but they didn’t grow. I have to do it differently next time. The kale is growing. The milkweed is growing nicely and I transplanted some. I still have some wanting to be transplanted. Since my trip to visit my granddaughters is coming up, I left the pots in an area with sun and watering until I come back. I also have the Zinnias in several feet tall. I wanted to create a butterfly garden.

    Your reading is wonderful, 21 of 30 this year!! Good for you to take part in NaNoWriMo this year. What happened to the one you did a few years ago when we were buddies? ❀ πŸ™‚

      I tried planting some from seeds too, and they didn’t work. I ended up buying the plants.

      I tried kale for the first time last year, but it didn’t get big. I’m not sure what I did wrong.

      Ooohhhh that sounds like a lovely idea! i hope the butterfly garden planting goes well. πŸ™‚ Is there any specific type of butterfly you hope to attract?

      I made it to 30 with 6 minutes to spare. πŸ˜…

      I still have the draft of that novel, and I plan to edit it sometime. πŸ™‚
