Gee Where Is The Time Going?

Today is Wednesday, August 11, 2010. The last two days have been just awesome! We have had a breeze with low humidity! We can breathe again. Even with the storm last night the humidity didn't soar. The heat index was 105 but without the humidity, it was so nice.

I can't believe that this is August already let alone already the 11th. Yesterday morning while cleaning the chicken coop, troubles sister was acting really weird. Usually when I open the door they are ready to run and get them so fresh grub. She left but only for a very brief time and back into the coop she came. I put hay in their boxes every morning, she came in and emptied all of the hay out of them all. I thought this was really odd so I kept watching her. When the other hens and roosters came back, she wouldn't let them into the boxes.

The red rooster "prays" every morning. After I clean the coop, put in their food and scratch along with fresh water, he comes in, jumps into his box facing the wall and goes to "talking". He does this for a few minutes jumps out of his box and then he eats. Well yesterday morning, he tried to "pray" only troubles sister would shove him out of his box. He tried the other ones only to be shoved from them also. He just stood there watching her, like what's going on with you.

She paced back and forth, jumping in and out of the boxes. She finally went to eat, I checked on them a few hours later and she seemed fine. Well last night after dinner, went to check on them again and we got our first egg! I am so excited! It was a little one, but hey, it was her first one.

Mama came over yesterday and stayed a couple of hours. We have been going to see her on Saturdays, I don't want to hear her saying to me again, it's been such a long time since I have seen you. Her eyes aren't what they use to be, I don't really care for her to be driving. Son #5 has told her Grams call me, I'll take you where you want to go. Oh, to be young and want to drive every minute of every day.

Still trying to get things finished up for my Etsy shop. Thought I would get a couple of things finished and at least a dozen listed yesterday. Mama seen to it that didn't happen. That's okay, it is time well spent! I love my mama!

Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~

  4. Love your collage and hearing the antics of the chickens. How fun that he prays every day. hehe So she was brooding! I don't have chickens, but I guess I've read so many blogs of friends with them that I recognized it before you said it. How funny is that? I guess she wasn't sure which box she would lay in. LOL This post made my day for some reason.:) I can't wait until the humidity breaks here. I LOVE summer but this sure has been a humid one.


It was nice of you to take time out of your busy day to stop by. Blessings to you and your family! (((HUGS)))
