We have eggs! For the past couple of weeks, Chip has been working his little tail feathers off fixing a nest to his or Peaches satisifaction. Saturday evening, Chip started doing this dance back and forth on a perch while Peaches was in the nesting box. After a while Peaches comes out and Chip goes back in the box. Pat said that he then started singing the sweetest song he had ever heard come out of Chip. Last night the same thing happened. I took a little peek in there this morning and there are two of the cutest little eggs. I do hope they are fertile. Pat is so happy. He just knew that Peaches could not lay any eggs. I knew it was because Chip was too young to be a daddy. I swear he spends more time in the box than she does. Now I need to learn a bit mre on what I need to provide for Peaches for when the eggs hatch. I also must be prepared to feed babies if she does not feed them. from what I understand handfed babies must be feed every hour for the first couple days. That will be a trial! I am not ready for that! I also do not have an incubator to keep them warm if Mama and Daddy don't do it. So on to an search to see what I can find out.
Pat and I went shopping yesterday. We were looking for a gift for Brook and he found something for me! I actually got 2 new outfits! So now I have 1 new dress and 1 new skirt set that I can wear to church or out somewhere( if I ever get to go anywhere!) Now anybody that knows me knows I never buy anything for me. I might go looking for me but I buy for someone else. We also got a cordory jacket(blazer) for me to wear also. Another thing we got was a very heavy duty vinyl bag for trick or treating. AND I got a candle from a craft show that smells like red hot cinnamons! I racked up yesterday! I felt bad after getting these things because I then came home and saw the news.
Pat and I had a good weekend together. I hope the rest of the wek goes as well as it did.
