Ten on Ten: three. ten. thirteen

So...ten on ten falls on a Sunday again. Maybe I should just post the same ten pictures I did last month. Since Sundays around here are pretty much the same. Hanging out in our pj's for a good portion of the day.

BB catching up on her homework. In between snack breaks.

Me...trying to clean up the week's worth of living.

As LB moves from room to room making more messes.

Buster. He does his best to do whatever his sisters are doing.

In between asking to go in/out. in/out. in/out. all. day. long.

Oh...and BSD? MIA. Just like last month. This time leaving me to deal with a sick chick. Our poor Pearl has literally "cooped" herself up the past few days. Today I brought her out of the coop to discover she had crud practically cemented to one of her legs and her butt. So what is a good farmer to do?

Yep. Give the bird a bath.

Never in my life did I ever see myself bathing a chicken. Or wiping a chicken's butt. But today I did both. What's up? Chicken butt.

I definitely earned some kind of girl scout badge today. Or at least an honorary 4-H membership.

BB told me I was supposed to blow dry her after. According to the information she read on the internet. But I chose the old-fashioned, towel-dry method. Tried and true.

She's still not quite right. Her breathing is labored and she's not eating. So tonight she's in a cardboard box in our laundry room. Where it's warm and cozy. And maybe still a little messy. Since my Sunday cleaning ritual got all fowled up.

It is definitely time for a break.

Hope you all had a better Sunday than we did. To see what others were up to today, go here.

I have to tell you that your chicken photo on your IG feed came at just the right time today....sometimes, this subbing gig is for the birds, or should I say chicken?!?!

Hope Pearl is ok.

The shot with your daughter, Buster and popcorn- captures so much...all your photos do! I hope to some day be as good at telling stories with photos as you are.
And I do hope poor Pearl is better. She's lovely.
