GOOD MORNING ALL!

Wedding plans are moving along nicely. Just need to find an officiant seeing how Commonwealth of Virginia doesn't recognize Ordained Ministers especially if certificate was acquired through an online church- so very glad we found this out NOW instead of last minute. Bride Tribe bouquets are done (EXCEPT for 1), flower girl basket completed, my bouquet done (PICS ATTACHED)- 1st pic Bride Tribe bouquets along with flower girl basket, 2nd pic Matron of Honor holding her bouquet and 3rd pic my bouquet. FH and Team Groom went to get measured on March 3rd and HOLY COW I can honestly say ALL the men (and I say that lovingly) aren't capable of doing anything without us ladies. We didn't go with Men's Wearhouse for the men's attire seeing how they didn't have the colors we needed so we went with Regancy Clothiers which partners with Jim's Formal Wear so if you know anyone who is getting married, look to see if Jim's Formal Wear is near your location because as of right now there is a promo going on where GROOMS ATTIRE IS FREE. BTW- the wedding colors aren't Wisteria, Sage with a kiss of Ivory anymore; the colors are Purple, Lavender (Light Purple), Sage and Ivory.

Beautiful bouquets!

On first cup of coffee. Going to do sheetrock again today. Last day. Except for one tiny room I have all the ceilings with second coat of mud. I’ll do that room this morning and probably walls too, so it will be totally done. It’s to the point where he can finish in a fairly short time. Then texture and paint.
Tomorrow I go get feed, clean house, do laundry, strip beds, etc. I need to get night pen built in front field so I can move soon to lamb ewes.
This coming weekend I get the two youngest granddaughters for the week. So no more sheetrock, it’s time to have fun.

No hatching yet, got my home built fridge sized incubator online yesterday, going to fill it up with about 120 eggs, in 13 hours it used 1kWh which means 76.92 watts a hour which is pretty good consider a fan running constant at .3A which translates to 36W and a 250W bulb if left on would use 286 watts a hour and my usage would of been 3.718kWh. To put it in perspective if for those on the grid at average .10 kWh in 24 hour period you would pay 74.36 cents a day to run this. To me off grid this means 154.91 amps used at 7.436kWh in a 24 hour period which means a lot on cloudy days with only 505Ah battery (that is after I factored in temperature coefficiency and usable capacity from 1010Ah battery), instead I'm only using 38.46 amps in 24 hour period at 1.846kWh at 48VDC nominal.
I see words in colors and 1's and 0's so don't mind me.

Ok, that totally went past my computations 🤣. I'm living with co-op power and just plug it in -- send me the bill ! Besides, I usually have 3-4 broody hens each spring. That's my preferred method.👍

I'm drinking some fresh, hot, tasty coffee. Looking at wet, dreary and more rainy coming 🙄😞 maybe I need rice to plant in the "garden". The ground just can't absorb as fast and often as it's coming. Second year for very wet spring.

Two days ago, at evening feeding, I looked at the back of field next to me, saw a herd of deer, I counted 17 -- there were more🥴. It's a corn field with grass cover crop.

Oh man -- now that's a math word problem! o_O I loved those things on tests when I was a kid. Now, that would be a program - plug in numbers spit out answer (retired early long ago software engineer).

I failed math in school, highest education level 9th :lol:
You remind me of my son. Barely got that boy through high school. He hated math and refused to do it. Now he's an electrician and a site supervisor with crews at 5 different plant locations. He does computations in his head. Scary smart - and you sound just like him!
