Ok readers I apologize for my absence. I can't believe what a difference 7 days makes. I have been on Spring Break this week from work - It has been WONDERFUL..but also our internet has been down ALL week. Aside from the occasional 5 minute look on facebook on my husbands Smartphone I have been out of the loop. I finally broke down and came to Starbucks to use their free WiFi and I am SO glad I did. I have been sitting here for about 3 hours catching up on blogs, facebook and emails. I had 85 emails!!! I can't believe it! While a number of them were updates from Zulily, OpenSky, West Elm, and Pottery Barn, I just couldn't believe all that I had been missing out on.

Other than being out of the loop on the internet...I still have yet to check out Pinterest...but my battery is dying, not too much is new on the Farm.

We did however, finish screwing in the roof to the chicken has been curiously laid on top with patio bricks holding it down for the past 11 months. And needing to be continuously put back on due to winter winds. The lovely hubster and I made a trip out to the good ole' Home Depot to pick up the last panel of roof sheeting and screwed it in. Then since we only needed the roof to be about 10' long instead of the 12' from the previous coop we needed to cut down four of the panels. To protect ourselves and other who may venture near the coop we went around the edge of the metal panel with duct tape. It has worked, and blends in beautifully.

I have gotten back into my Wii Fit and been on 3 days in a row!!! I love going on my Wii Fit Board on the carpet because it says that I am 10lbs lighter!!!

I have been researching and soaking up information and tutorials about my new camera that my lovely hubs gave me for my birthday!! Its a Nikon DSLR 3100. I am SO excited about it.

I worked out in the garden pulling weeds and planning what new flowers and plants that I want to get. And the ponies got their feet done.

Today I am working on making Easter desserts...that is after I finish up with my internet surfing here at Starbucks.

Wish me luck! I'll be back soon..I hope...darn internet.

What have you been doing this first week of April? let me know in the comments section!!
