Still alive....


Previous Entry Still alive.... Mar. 27th, 2011 @ 03:21 pm Next Entry
Let's see...it was 91* yesterday; today it's 56*. :brrrrr: Junior/Zaphod is safely ensconced in our bathroom - as a result, I'm not sleeping. It's hard to sleep with the pitter-patter of little hooves learning to tap-dance and jump! :lol: He's a cutie, though....I need to get pictures. I have some - but they're of the wet-with-slime variety. :sigh:

Yesterday, SG spent part of his bonus on a mini-Mac for the kids. We are now a Mac family.....no PCs for us! :lol: We're using one of my old PC monitors with it - Apple wanted $1000 for a 27", and that's the smallest they had. :blink: Sorry, but NO. The 15" we had is OK. :nods:

Inara's doing well. Up to a little over 4 pounds of milk a day right now...and still increasing. She's an easy milker, too - a blessing! If I could only get her to jump up on the stand.....(I seem to remember Annie and Inara being stubborn about that, too....I just don't remember the stiff knee part of it! :lol:)

Tomorrow is contract-day. :sigh: Both kids will be home....I plan on leaving early so I can get home early. :blah:

Eggs look good....we'll see how they are *really* doing in a few days. Got our candler yesterday....gotta wait until the 10th to use it, though (10th day, not 4/10). :fingers crossed: they're all all right.

where did you purchase your candler from? I've priced them and they are $$$$; you seem to find all the good bargain places.

Re: candler

eBay! The seller is sklipper; the link is:


It was $9.99, with $4.99 shipping. Shipping was a little high, I thought, but it arrived in a couple of days.

It's an "incuBright"; it has "6 super bright cool light LEDs" and a rubber egg protector ring. It was the cheapest one I found...and it's *bright*. Haven't used it yet....but I think it'll work great! They say you don't need a box or anything, just a dark-ish room..which is why it's cheap.
