Not Much Going On

Yesterday made a trip to get my much needed hair cut then to Walmart to pick up a few things.  It was such a beautiful day to be out and around.  Brandon came to spend Friday night and we all went out for supper.  We then spent the evening with me researching how to make an incubator so I can hatch turkey eggs next spring while Ron and Brandon watched TV.
Today we went to an estate sale by our house and came away with nothing.  We then went to an auction and looked around and left with nothing.  Stopped and picked up a few groceries and on our way to take Brandon home we stopped along a country road and picked up some dropped pumpkins from the side of the road and then saw some spilled corn and picked it up.  The chickens and turkeys loved their free treats.  Then after we dropped Brandon off we stopped and got some ice cream and while we ate it sitting in a truck parking lot we saw some like new lumber that someone threw away so we picked it up.  We got 9 2x4's and 2 2x8's  that will come in handy when constructing a structure for the turkey poults next spring.  My goal is to construct the incubator and make the turkey structure for free or very little money spent.  I have until next spring to gather everything needed and I love a challenge.


  1. You should see about reviewing Weck canning jars. Don't think I'll try them, I have so many Ball and Kerr now. they seal with a rubber ring and glass top. Very expensive, maybe you could get some to review. Take care, love you, G.

    1. Renee said something about that too. I love they way they look and have also heard they are hard to find and expensive. I'll put that on my list of things to do on my down time.
