Chick Delay

The plan was to post tomorrow with photos of my cute new chicks. Alas, the hatchery won’t have two of the birds I ordered until next Thursday so no cute chick photos. You’ll have to settle for fungus.

The chick delay is probably good as it allows more time for coop completion. Plus I have Friday off next week so I can spend three days helping my chicks and myself get used to each other.

As March comes to an end, April is looking like it could be even more action packed than my usual chaos. After all, April is NaPoWriMo, where you can participate by writing a poem a day. I took part in 2011 and it was a lot of fun, but I’m not sure I can pull it off this year with so much to do.

I will still probably give poetry a shot and gear towards very short poems, accompanied by a photo. I may do some poultry poetry. Try to say that ten times fast!

But April is also the month of “30 Days of Biking”. There is a writing contest for this event and you can send in photos of your bike adventures too.

I work about 20 miles from my house so I won’t be riding my bike to work. And it’s hard to ride after work because the dogs need their walk and people attention time. Yeah, yeah, excuses, excuses.

However, I could load my bike in my car and ride during my lunch break. There are some pretty cool bike trails in Minneapolis. So there are possibilities here for bike poems and photos of things I see while biking.

And I need to get my gardening groove on. My plans are big while my time and gardening spaces are small. We’ll see how that goes.

There is just so much that could happen in April…
