A Blur In Time

Today is Monday, November 1, 201o. The weather has been cooler, not much but cooler, still not much color changing going on here. Keeping fingers crossed that it starts to happen soon. I miss the colors of Fall and the first snow. The first snow always seem to made the world quiet and peaceful . Everything is so clean and fresh.

These last few weeks seem to be a blur. Things seem to be moving so fast, to fast. Not sure why, but it is stopping as of today.

Saturday after George got off we went out to the meat market to get our meat for the next three weeks and then to get three new babies. They are so tiny, it is so hard to believe that my girls were this little when I got them. So we had to add to the chicken house until they are bigger.

I wanted to get older ones, but the lady that I get my chickens from didn't have them, so we got the little ones, they are two months old. I was so worried about the girls excepting them, but the lady told me that they are going to establish "pecking order" no matter what age. And boy howdy do they. These babies already are establishing their "pecking order" among themselves. The smallest one pretty much keeps to herself but when the wing flapping and bowing up to each other is brought to her, she doesn't back down.

Red will protect them, after I had cleaned out their house and the girls and Red had run for a few hours, I put them back in their house. After they were back in I brought out the babies and Red went nuts when he heard them. Like he does when one of the girls screams, he comes running. He paced up and down the side of the house checking them out, not to worried about him.

Made mama ham and bean soup and a plate of chili rellenos Sunday. I figured it was about that time again. She loves both and yet won't make either one of them. Young son and I spent a couple of hours with her and then home to cook supper. Young son told George that grandma was talking a lot! She was just full of herself, I think it's the cooler weather.

Received a phone call on Wednesday that my daddy was losing his battle with cancer. He has been fighting for well over a year now. Got the phone call last night, he has passed over. I am thankful that he will hurt no more. I love you daddy....

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