Lazy lazy lazy.

Wow, I don’t feel like moving today.

I did get my vegetable garden all planted on Tuesday. And then pulled a bunch of weeds…big old suckers, out of one of the flower beds. That aggravated my abdominal muscle pull, so I’m lazin’ about today.

I don’t know what happened, but Poppy’s chicks have decreased from 10 down to 4. We have noticed that she doesn’t keep them very close to her, so really even our cats could have gotten them. Lemonpepper was a much better mama. She hatched 8 and all of them survived until she stopped watching over them.Β 

At the rate she is going I won’t have to worry about having more roosters.

Tomorrow yoga, then lunch with a friend. Saturday Ken and I are going to Ohio to spend the night and then go to Cedar Point on Sunday. He loves all the crazy rides, and so do I, once I get going. It makes me nervous to think about them, though. And, once again, we will probably be the oldest people there. Lol. Sheesh.

We will come back on Monday.

I guess in the interest of saying that I did SOMETHING today I will run to the grocery store. Then I’ll see if I want to garden this afternoon. Oh…it’s already afternoon.

I just finished reading “What the Night Knows” by Dean Koontz. That was fun. Typical Koontz, nothing new, but still an enjoyable read.

Ok…..guess I’d better go to the grocery store.

    If you’ll drive rather than run to the grocery store you’ll probably fair better! lol

    Sorry about your chickadees.

    I can’t do the rides anymore. My nerves won’t take it! lol

    • Lauri says:

      Lol. Luckily “run to the store” is just a figure of speech. I wouldn’t live to have a heart attack on the rides if I had to run to the store! πŸ˜€

  3. I think it’s great that you and Ken are the oldest people at the amusement park. I think those of us in our 50s start losing the ability to have fun. We’d rather sit at home and gripe about how crappy we feel, or how lousy the movies are nowadays. πŸ˜‰

    I was going to say something about natural selection and how bad mamas often raise bad chicks, but if that was true, my chicks would all be in prison now. πŸ˜€

    • Redscylla says:

      Cha! We don’t believe for a second that you were a bad chicken. I think from a natural selection process, indifferent chicken mamas raise chicks who if they survive to adulthood are independent, but indifferent chicken mamas themselves. πŸ˜‰

      • Heck, I could never keep track of my kids once they were teenagers. You just can’t when you’re a single mom. But the oldest used to come in at 4 a.m. Saturday morning, sometimes with her BFF, who would crash on our sofa. They were both sober—but I never knew where they had gone that night. Believe it or not, that kid is now the most conservative of the brood. My youngest, who was accused of being a mama’s boy, is now a Northwestern anarchist who thinks cars and meat are evil and works with the homeless. I may have had a hand in that, but I never gave up my car or my affiliation with the Democratic Party. I think that apple kind of jumped from the tree.

    Sorry about the chicks. They’re SO vulnerable. They drop dead on their own, in a protective Ta-House, too.

    L – don’t grandparents take their grandchildren to Cedar Point? When I lived in NW PA, it was a big family day-trip destination.

    As for those rides, sheesh… I think the merry-go-round has been my favorite since I turned 30.

    • Lauri says:

      Oh yes, there are tons of families and grandparents there, but we didn’t see many our age going on the insane coasters. I hope they have defibrillators scattered throughout the park. LOL.

    • Lurkertype says:

      The grandparents sit on the benches while the kids go on the coasters.

      Mr. LT and I would totally go on the coasters with Larui and Ken! Do they have the kind where they strap you in and at some point you’re flying like Superman? I love that.

      • Lauri says:

        Oooo, that one sounds fun! They don’t have it at Cedar Point unless they added it since last year!

        • Lurkertype says:

          I haven’t been on that one for years, but it’s frickin’ awesome. Most of the time you’re upright like on a regular coaster, and then you do a barrel roll and whammo, you’re on your stomach in the air, flying, then you go back.

          One time I met up with a bunch of internet friends in Vegas and we went from casino to casino just to go on the coasters. And drink.

  6. GOF says:

    Sorry about the little chickens Lauri and I hope you and Ken have an exciting weekend.
    LOL re defibrillators.

  7. Aussie Emjay says:

    I would be sitting on a seat watching everyone’s kids and Ken & Lauri – no rollercoaster for me. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. The little chicks are so cute in the photos below – I’m sorry their numbers are going down.

  8. trishc1812 says:

    I hate that the number of baby chicks keep dropping. I hope those four make it to adult-hood.

    Cedar Point! I hope you have a great time. We were at Castaway Bay for Spring Break in March. Cedar Point was still closed for the winter but some of those rides looked down right scary. I don’t know how I’d do on roller coasters these days. I find that the older I get the more I suffer from motion sickness. I’d have to dose up on Dramamine and just hope that I enjoyed getting tossed and rattled around on those rides.

    Have fun!!

    I’m totally envious – I’ve always wanted to go to Cedar Point!
