Well this has been a hot and cold weekend. Pat's enthusiasm has cooled a bit but not totally. Real life slapped him in the face and said ok here is the test, deal with it. Need to get him worked up a bit again.
It is raining here AGAIN. Rain is painful for me as well as a few other people I know. There is reality for me, so I deal with it. Most people around me and that includes Pat, do not realize how much I hurt or even when I hurt. I have decided I am not going to take pain meds because when the pain does become to where I can't tolerate it I want to be able to take something that will help. Right now I can tolerate the pain.
Ok moving on.
I got a couple of chickens yesterday. They are game hens. Not the little ones,these lay a decent size egg. I still have them in the carrier I got them in. Want to give them a few days of looking at things before I turn them loose. This will be fun. I will have to follow them around and find out where they are laying their eggs. Game hens are notorious for NOT making a nest where you want them too. LOL of course I do not have a chicken coop yet either. I am thinking of going to TS Tractor Supply and getting a couple of Rhode Island Reds (nice big brown eggs) chicks come spring. Unless someone wants to give me a few pullets (young hens) before then, LOL.
Running short on hay. We only have 24 bales left. This will not us last until grass is growing. I am gonna have to buy another round bale. I am getting them cheap from a neighbor, only $15. The problem with round bales is that they cannot set out in the rain for horses to eat. We do not have a place in the dry to keep it. Hopefully it will quit raining soon.
They are talking about an early spring. I would not mind that if it quits raining. I would love to get my garden in early this year. Maybe I could miss some of the bugs that eat the whole crop!
Ok what else?
Oh yes. My daughter and her husband were planning on moving into the little house down the street on Feb 1st taking Brook with them. This has been tearing me up. I am not ready to let her go but I suppose it is time. Anyway, that move will not take place. The owner of the house is now undecided as to what she is going to do. She is thinking of moving back into it herself. That will be fun. Nothing like her back here to set the neighborhood on its ear again. No she is not a bad person, just that her and her ex will be at each other. Theirs is a volatile situation. Not looking forward to that.
So anyway it is time for me to get busy. See everyone later.
