It’s the Tuesday after labor Day, but for me it pretty much feels like a Monday because I slept through quite a bit yesterday and didn’t have feed anybody but myself.
This morning, I woke at 6:30 pleased with the amount of sleep I had received the night before. The start of the evening had me on a dream sequence I wasn’t particularly happy with and after the first wake up and fall asleep it seemed to continue, so for the second one I had to try a little harder to be thinking of other things as I fell asleep and it worked.
I think I probably woke up about four times but only peed twice so I’m getting back to a more acceptable norm.
When I saw that my morning wake up was 6:30, I thought that’s perfect, and I’ve been up ever since.
I had a quick mental debate at 6:30 because I feed the chickens at 7:30 but it doesn’t take that long. I could easily refrain from my morning drugs and feed the chickens and then go back to sleep until noon, but I had such a good few days of sleep over the holiday weekend that I decided in the favor of drugs.
The feeding prep area had been rearranged into a more organized setup, but the chicken options were a little confusing. I wish I’d asked, but he should have told me . We were out of the primary pellet feed but three new options were available. I chose the one with pellets in it and served up the platter to the three early risers waiting impatiently outside the house door.
It’s getting chilly now as August turned to September and the weaker chickens might need to be fed directly in the coop but we’ll see who comes out for lunch. In a few minutes I’ll take the food from the back porch that they didn’t eat and bring it inside. This may be my new morning ritual. Feed and then take away instead of just leaving it for the birds.
I mean the non chicken birds. They they love selected parts of the chicken feed. Various ground rodents eat the rest if we’re not quick enough and I’d rather not feed them given the choice.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
