It is Thankful Thursday again!

Time has gone by so quickly this past week. I have several things I am thankful for this week. One is my new stove was delivered on May 1st. It is such a joy to be able to bake again! This stove I chose has a power burner, a simmer burner, two regular burners and a center oval shaped burner. The big oval one in the center can have a griddle put over it to cook on. I just need to find one that will fit it now. I also think it will be great for canning on. The power burner will get water boiling in such a short time. I feel like a chef! Here are a couple of pictures of it.

The other thing I am so thankful for is the sun is going to shine and be nice on Saturday. Why is that important to me? Because that is the day we are celebrating my oldest daughters 9th birthday and she wanted a picnic. Her birthday is actually on Sunday, but since it is also Mother's Day this year we decided to have her party the day before. That way her guests won't have to chose between her party and other family obligations. So praise the Lord a picnic it will be on Saturday. We will go to the park by the river here.

In other news, our little turkeys have moved to their new home out in the brand new barn. So did the Dark Cornish. They are getting so pretty those Cornish chickens!

Here is Ed and the girls opening the bag of pine shavings for the floor in the Dark Cornish side of the new barn. He still has the inside walls to put up and paint, but we are using it as is for now.

Sally waiting to help Daddy smooth the shavings out.
This is my sweetie putting the shavings down on the turkey side of the barn.

Here is Audrey after sweeping the shavings around to spread them on the floor.

The turkey poults in their new home. Well almost, they were too small to let loose in the entire space, so until they are little bigger we have them in the box.

This is a photo of our Dark Cornish chickens in their new home. We have 15 of them. These are the ones that we will keep two roosters and about 4 or 5 hens from for our breeding stock. You guessed it----the rest will be dinner.
They are much prettier in real life. The color is like a golden bronze.
So what are you thankful for today? Leave a comment and let me know what it is you have to be thankful for today.
Have a wonderful day! Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for Frugal Friday tips.
