Baby Dove Update

Well, I did it - I pulled my back for the first time in my life. I've been laying on a heating pad for half the day. It all caught up with me at the food show yesterday. It's my own fault for not stretching before doing all the lifting and pulling I've been doing the last several days.

The food show was quite interesting and I sure did learn a lot. The free food was great - they had everything you can think of there. This was for people in the restaurant business to see the latest and greatest prepared foods. Did you know that those delicious soups you get in a lot of restaurants are pre-made and come in huge frozen bags and the restaurant just throws them in a kettle to thaw out? Same for the red skin mashed potatoes! I often wondered how the soups came out tasting exactly the same way every time. Now I know.

I hope to work on some sewing projects tomorrow - nothing strenuous. In the mean time, here is a picture of the baby doves at 10 and 9 days old. I can't believe how fast they are growing!!!

Phyllis, I've often wondered about the food. Like Panera Bread for instance. I'll bet all those doughs and batters arrive in a 16 wheeler frozen and ready to bake, are not mixed in the store.
I think this is why the local bakery is a thing of the past. Sad.

Hi Phyllis--sorry about your back--why do we always think we can just do whatever and not pay a price--but you do have a nice chicken run and a beautiful arbor for that aching back!!
the baby doves almost look like baby ducks the way they are sitting in that basket--hope tomorrow finds you pain free!
Have a good one--Just, Di from the blogspot: quiltingisblissful

Oh, Phyllis...I just returned from Little Rock and am catching up. Love your arbor and your new play yard for the chicks. I'm so sorry to hear about your back injury. Hopefully, it will mend quickly. Your little doves are adorable...they have grown so much while I was away. Thanks for keeping us updated with pictures. Take care of yourself and rest up.

I did that same thing to my back a couple of weeks ago. So painful! Thank goodness I was already scheduled with the physical therapist for something else and they could work on my back instead. :) blessings, marlene

I wanted to pass along a really cool "Eagle Cam" - there are 3 eggs and one has hatched. It is so much fun to watch - the "Dad" brings fish to the "Mom" and you can even catch her feeding the baby. Take care of your back!

Silly me - forgot the link.

Hi Phyllis,
Ice works better than the heating pad. I have back problems & trust me, ice is so much better than heat.

I can't believe how big the babies have gotten! ☺

Love love love the little Doves. They are getting so big so fast.
