I decided to sit down and write a little post before I head upstairs to soak in the tub. 

The weekend has gone well and we have accomplished quite a bit. My cold has finally gone and my back is feeling tons better. In fact, I washed, dried and folded almost all of the laundry today with a little help from EJ. Only a few dryer loads to go. Hallelujah!

The ducklings had their first visit outside and loved it. Katelyn took them out while I was busy inside. It felt good to actually accomplish a lot instead of laying on a heating pad all weekend.

Spring break is over and the boys are back to school in the morning. This mama is ready for them to be back in the classroom.

Roasted chicken, green bean casserole and ? are in the works for dinner. Katelyn also made up a few batches of cookies. Yummy!

Randy took the first boat ride of the year in search of our other five Cayuga ducks . . . sadly, he reported he did not see them. Never again will we allow our ducks to roam and swim freely. We firmly believe the snowmobile rider had something to do with their disappearance. They were doing just fine at the base of our yard where they had houses, hay, food and water. We may never know what happened to them. 

Well, that is enough for now . . . time to head upstairs for a long, long, long soak in the tub.

So where will you keep the ducks during the winter then? Inside with Finn?

Do you think the snowmobile driver took them or hurt them? I must have missed hearing about that. :(

BTW, as I'm typing this Bernie and Wally are popcorning all over their cage, lol!

Hi Tammy,

Well, we are building them a nice duck house that will keep them all nice and cozy, plus give them a place to enjoy the outside safely. We are excited about this project. Randy is to begin it this week.

We aren't sure what the snowmobile guy did - they were there one night as we ate dinner - we know because we were watching them. The next morning, there were snowmobile tracks right up to the docks and then foot prints. We never saw them again.

Go Wally and Bernie!!! lol

So where are the 3 yellow ducks in the picture from? I hadn't read that you had gotten any new babies.

Katelyn bought them at a local farm supply.
