Hello. My name is Cheryl and I am a blogger. It has been five days since I blogged.
Sorry, I have brain “crud” disease. I really am sorry I haven’t posted in a few days. Decided it was time I brought you in on the life changing events that have been taking place around here.
Sorry, about the picture quality. The little scamp would not be still!
First and most importantly, this little critter was found! He was discovered about two hours after he went MIA. Rather than wait until morning to give his rear the boot, he was escorted immediately to the first set of cedar trees in the pasture!
David (son-in-law) is still sore. He was suppose to go to the doctor yesterday to get the results of x-rays, etc. However, their van was acting ugly and had to be brought to Papaw for correction.
Papaw was able to set the van to rights. But because he was working on the van, he couldn’t work on the drain lines (to the house), that were slowly refusing to drain. That is today’s project. (But, hey! It got me out of cooking supper last night! We had pizza instead.) (Just learning to dance in the rain.)
With my remaining aches, pains and the crud that seems to have affected everyone this year, having eight kids under one roof for five days was – difficult, interesting, challenging, fun, terrible, funny – you name it and we experienced it! All the animal babies got more TLC (sometimes it was a little lacking on the tender) than most animals receive in a lifetime. And I moved into an area of some kind of brain fog that is just now beginning to lift.
Speaking of animals – more to the point – speaking of dogs, we have inherited two new poochies. Kit is a long hair Chihuahua, reddish-brown and white (looks like she could be a strange relative of mama horse). We took her per Elijah’s birthday request from a family who could no longer keep her. She’s about three months old. Then came Petey. He is a small short hair Chihuahua with black spots and black markings on white. He is two months and his original owners referred to him as “Pokka Dot”. However, he looks a little like a miniature Petey from the Little Rascals. Then we got a call about a mini black and tan dachshund, about a year old. We were going to accept him, thinking it wouldn’t take long to find a great home, but in the end the owners decided they couldn’t get rid of the little fella. (He is so small, when put outside he goes through the fence.)
The ugly white rooster is scared to death of Kit! He is so mean, I can’t believe he is scared of such a little dog. But while he is scared, we have a red hen who has never exhibited a mean feather on her body and she has put the fear into Kit. I will have to take some pictures once the sun shines enough to dry out part of our lakefront property! They are all so funny to observe.
No more baby goats, yet. Every night we think we will wake up to find new babies with their mamas, but so far - nada! The other babies are doing great, even the “lil orphan girl.”
This is about all my brain can handle for now. Three of the grands returned home yesterday after David and Papaw worked on the their van. Only five here today and it is almost quiet. Very strange, but nice.
Once the drain lines are cleared, I have a ton of dishes and laundry to work on. Two of the boys are complaining with headaches and are lying down. I think they are exhausted from all the extra activity day and night, so we are going to take school easy today. Maybe we should declare the rest of this week spring break and then do school next week when the schools are out.
If you are looking for something that sounds wonderful for dinner tonight, check out Katie’s Honey Orange-Glazed Chicken at Dishin’ and Dishes. I think we are going to give it a try tonight. I asked Katie if she delivers. No word yet. LOL
While I was sidelined from posting, I did find the time to visit several your blogs and that was nice. I need to work out some sort of system, whereby I can touch base with everyone on a regular basis. But figuring how to achieve that will have to wait for another day. Anyone have a suggestion?
Also, if you are an Oklahoma Blogger, I made a suggestion that once a month we blog about Oklahoma in some form or fashion and link our sites. If you are interested please let me know. There is also a button for the Oklahoma Bloggers Club at the bottom of the page.
And now for the important news!! The winner of the Jacquie Lawson gift account is (TADA) Unknown Mami. Be sure and leave me a comment, so I can figure out how to bestow this gift! (Well, you know I am challenged, technically speaking!)
May the remaining part of this week be wonderfully blessed for you and your families!
P.S. Just got the green light on doing dishes!
