A status update because I am staying off Facebook!

It has been a day or so since I wrote anything. First, I hate Windows 10. This brand new HP I got for Christmas sucks with Windows 10. It is constantly crashing. Windows 10 needs to be thrown in the garbage! I would prefer Windows 7 or XP to this shitty ass version! Hey Microsoft, here’s an idea, and let’s include Facebook and picsart in this as well, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it! All this playing with shit needs to end. You are ruining what was once really great! Instead of making it better, you are making it like a pot of coffee that has sat on the burner for a week and is now nothing but burnt and gross!

The other thing I have been doing is crocheting for others and working. Plus the constant cleaning of my house. Feeding chickens, birds, cats, dogs, goats, and the like really makes up my whole day. Gotta love farming and having a career that isn’t farming as well.

I found a great sale on yarn going on at JoAnn’s Fabric! The one pound yarns are now on sale for 6.99 and they have all the rest on sale 2/$5. You can’t beat this even at Wal-Mart. I hate getting yarn at Wally World. Usually you can see someone has torn it out from the middle and shoved it back in. They don’t take very good care of anything there. At JoAnn’s and Michael’s, you don’t have that or dirty yarn. I told our local Wally about some yarn that was dirty and they said, “Don’t worry about it. Someone will buy it.” Come on. Have some pride here. I pay a few pennies more at the other two but the yarn isn’t dirty nor has the middle been torn out and shoved back in. It is always nicely kept and the same color is always with those colors not moved somewhere else. If you are a yarn buff and need it to survive, head to JoAnn’s Fabric for their sale.

Well, back to cleaning and crocheting. I have to get stuff done. Write again soon.

Blessed Wednesday of Nothingville

happy-wednesday

Miss Nose and I want to wish you a happy Wednesday. The creepy pasta we are working on for October’s Halloween time is about 1800’s Fayette where we have the ghost town and Garden Michigan. We had some savory people then and I am just gonna make up names but use the true tale. I hope you will all enjoy it.

I am still working on my #shapingyourstory of the Stalking of Katie. I hope to have that ready for Halloween time as well. I hope you will all enjoy it. I am hoping to have all the stories ready for you for this brand new month.

I pray your blessings are many!

Nancy

 

Happy Caturday! A Nothing Note!

It has been a month since I posted anything. I really should start posting daily even if it is some goofy picture so you can keep coming back. I sit here with my coffee filled with french vanilla creamer taking a break from writing two Miss Nose stories and a possible creepy pasta for October. I have also been working on my Ackerman Lake Murders and I am thinking about changing it completely.

I am baking up Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies. Joe loves them. They are healthy, I know, but that is good for the parrots. They can’t have some of the stuff I do. It does another thing as well, stops cravings for unhealthy cookies. lol.

no-coffee

I have been going to people’s houses for massage. It isn’t the same as having an office but it does make it nicer for the client. I am looking at finding some new modalities to add for my mobile business. I am looking for a drivable RV to turn into a mobile office.

School has started and I haven’t had a day home. It has been doctors and other running. Been so crazy. Both my girls came down with the common cold and guess who they gave it to, ME! So I have been battling that. We had to pick up my oldest daughter’s violin from Jim’s today. The neck had separated from the body and it cost us $60 to fix. She is so happy that it is back. All I have been hearing since we came home is her playing.

Happy Autumn Equinox to everyone. It is fall and harvesting time. All the farmers around me and I have been getting ready for winter. Canning, picking, cleaning barns & coops, & putting stuff inside so it isn’t left outside during this time.  Mitch, a local farmer, who lives on St. Nicholas Road, is selling vegetables he has grown to anyone wanting them. If you are interested, give him a call. He has tomatoes for .75 cents a pound. Can’t beet that! Get it beet instead of beat! lol. Farm humor.

A Friday Edition of The Nothing Files

AHA! I have something new. I am going to go through and tag all my old nothing days with The Nothing Files as well and maybe make it a category.

Some updates.

I started the four week program for shaping your story. I am working on my old piece called The Stalking of Katie. I had put up parts  one and two. I have a third part but never put that on. I am reworking it and when I have it as a complete story, I will post it for you all to read.

I started using story boards for my creations recently. So far, I am not sure this helps me much. It kinda crimps my creativity some since I keep thinking I need to follow it. I have to constantly remind myself that it isn’t written in stone and I can change my mind whenever I please.

I am starting to like my new home in Rock. I miss Cornell. I loved my old house, but now that more and more of my stuff is getting put away, I am enjoying my new one. The chickens seem to like it. The road isn’t as heavily trafficked either. Which is better for our furbabies or featherbabies. I have five apple trees and the apples should be ready soon I hope. This means CANNING! Yes, applesauce, apple jelly, apple slices canned in filling for apple pie, and anything else I can find to do with five trees worth of apples.

I do think I have a predator. I have had some chickens and eggs disappear. Some of my cats are gone. I am worried about them all.

Wednesday, my mom was here. She went to lie down and all of a sudden, the crows and blue jays started freaking out. I wondered out and discovered patches and patches of raspberry plants. These aren’t big since they are wild, but tons of them. Just tons. Then I saw something running away. No idea if it is a human, deer, or bigfoot. It was the size of a human. I shouted, “Who is there!?” The creature disappeared. Weird, eh? I have been smelling what I would say is the smell of death. It isn’t all the time but like brief and at different times. I have no idea if it is a weed, a human out hunting and carrying around their kill, or what it is. I just get it and then it is gone. It concerns me especially since I am missing chickens and cats. The dogs start going off too when I smell it and Tillie will make her very short hair on her black lab body stand right up. She growls and barks. Not sure if she is sensing a deer, a coyote, or what. Could be a wolf or eagle even. I don’t know but she doesn’t want it around. Ryder, our beagle/basset hound, has been picking up scents in the yard and trying to follow them. He runs into the woods and you can hear his basset hound bark for miles. Then he comes back. I have no idea what he is chasing but it worries me.

Anyway, I have to get back to fixing the nothing posts. I am going to change the category and make it something else. Always good to periodically go through your blog and look at how to make it better!

Have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend! Til the next Nothing File!

 

We need a President who will boldly go where no President has gone before

As you all know, I have been following around Presidential Nominee Pepper. Pepper is the first bird to ever be nominated for President! Pepper has been working hard. He is hitting animal shelters, prisons, and the homeless. He is going where no Presidential candidate has ever gone and speaking to people no Presidential candidate has spoken to before. He hears their pleads and concerns and has based his campaign on them. He recently wrote this campaign speech and I hope you all enjoy it as much as the rest of us have! He has also chosen Chong as his Vice President to run with.

PEPPER CHONG

As I sit back and watch all the political hype between the news and social media, I am struck with what the Law of Attraction would call a vision moment. I have a vision of a President. I see a President that can fulfill what no other President could before. I have a list of needs this President and any politician should be ready and able to make so.

Here is my list:

  1. NOT a career politician. I find that many politician’s make a career out of running and they keep giving themselves raises. They are not in tune with what real life is. They don’t have to worry about eating or where they live. It is all given to them and with the salary they give themselves, they can enjoy the good life. No politician should be allowed to get rich on the back of the poor.
  2. Business man. Yes, definitely should be someone who knows how to run a business since part of what our country is, is a business
  3. Small business experience. Why? Because this way our politician will be interested in helping people create jobs for our citizens.
  4. Knows taxes and payroll. I know this sounds funny, but think about it a minute. This person is helping to create tax laws which will affect payroll and what is taken out of your check each time you get paid. I want someone who knows this and has experienced this as part of his/her daily life. This is a possible hardship to all Americans and should be looked at whenever you go to vote for a politician.
  5. Can budget. Come on this is big even for a CEO of a company. Look at what we owe. Trillions of dollars and it keeps growing in the negative. Would you let your school or business do this? No. So why should our government be allowed to. Social Security was set up as a pension plan for those who don’t have one and I, for one, would love to see it go back to that and not use to give some politician a golfing vacation.
  6. Foreign affairs. It would be great if all had this but really, not many do. Even career politicians don’t have this. What I mean is, someone who has done business, negotiated with, and knows the culture of each country. When you think about our trade agreements and our goods/services being fairly distributed throughout the world, we need someone who knows and can get this done.
  7. Military experience – Folks, we have to remember that the President is the Commander-in-Chief of the military. We need someone who understands and knows how to command the military during the time of peace and the time of war. We need someone with a head on their shoulders who knows that war isn’t always the first or right step. We need a skilled negotiator that can control a situation before sending in the swat team.
  8. Won’t allow lobbyists sorry companies but I think my rights should trump your right to push an unwanted item like a cancer causing vaccine (HPV) on my kids or me. It is time we get the lobbyists out of Washington and start really working for the people of this country.
  9. Will work for animal rights.  THIS IS A BIG ONE FOR ME! HOW MANY OF THE VIDEOS HAVE YOU SEEN WHERE A WORKER AT BUTTERBALL HAS RAPED A TURKEY OR A COW IS BEATEN, RAPED, AND TORTURED BEFORE BEING BEHEADED! THIS IS NUMBER ONE ON MY LIST. IF SOMEONE ISN’T AN ANIMAL ACTIVIST, I DON’T WANT YOU IN OFFICE. I DON’T CARE ABOUT YOUR DEBATE THINKING AN ANIMAL DOESN’T KNOW EMOTIONS OR FEEL. THEY DO! THEY HAVE A NERVOUS SYSTEM JUST LIKE YOU DO. THEY HAVE RED BLOOD JUST LIKE YOU DO. THEY EXPERIENCE LIFE JUST LIKE YOU DO! JUST BECAUSE A TREE BLEEDS SAP DOESN’T MEAN IT DOESN’T BLEED. SAP IS THE TREE’S BLOOD. SO BEFORE YOU GO BANGING STICKS ON A TREE, REMEMBER THAT! A TREE HAS ROOTS. IT FEEDS, DRINKS, AND FEELS FROM ITS ROOTS. WE ARE IN A RACE WAR NOT ONLY WITH OUR OWN HUMAN RACE BUT WITH EVERY LIVING RACE OF SENTIENT BEINGS ON THIS PLANET. WE ARE THE PROBLEM. WE ARE THE DESTROYERS. ANIMALS HUNT TO EAT. HUMANS HUNT FOR SPORT AND TO HANG A HEAD ON THE WALL. ANIMALS KILL THE WEAK SO THEY WON’T GET HUNTED DOWN AND KILLED BY THE ENEMY. WE KILL BECAUSE WE LIKE THE FEELING. THIS IS WHY WE HAVE SERIAL MURDERERS BECAUSE THEY LOVE THE FEELING OF KILLING. WE ARE THE PROBLEM WITH THIS PLANET NOT THE OTHER SENTIENT BEINGS, BUT US. Now I will get off my soap box about this but I want a President and Congress with the Supreme Court to really know, this is important, and it needs to be addressed properly. I want to see our Congress and President behind us in the NO KILL SHELTER movement. I think this would be wonderful to see, our President and Congress volunteering at animal shelters and giving back to communities even by serving in soup kitchens. I never see a politician go to animal shelters, prisons, or to homeless shelters when they are campaigning.
  10. Can enforce laws against any type of abuse to human, animals, plants, or water sentient lifeforms. This goes along with number 9. Nothing, I mean NOTHING, on this planet deserves to be tortured for anyone amusement. Just because humans think they are better doesn’t mean they are. Humans are destructive. Humans are mean. Humans need to get back to being peacemakers and lovers. We need to get back to respect. IF we need laws to remind people of that, then we need them. Common sense should prevail but sometimes it never does which is why we have laws that seem so comical. It is because people have forgotten common sense and humanity.
  11. Felonies. Yes we all know people who have them and some for really good reasons. But I don’t think this should be an excuse to take away your right to vote for life nor your Second Amendment rights for life. Now, hear me out. Look at all the felonies we have in this country. Is it fair that someone who commits fraud should no longer own a gun or vote? I can understand if you go in with a pistol and shoot up a 7Eleven, then I think you shouldn’t be allowed your weapon for a while but still, you should be allowed to vote. I think for Second Amendment rights it should be by the crime and once you have done your time, you should be on a list for like 7 or 10 years and if you don’t do any more crimes after that, then your right should be reinstated. We hold judgment over people even after prison which is wrong. Would you hold that same judgment on your child who just got out of time out? No. You move on and if they keep repeating the pattern you do your best to change the behavior. This is the same with prison. Some people never learn and we know this. But others do, and I think they should be given the respect they deserve. If you think about all our laws and you think about all the things that could make you a felon, then you will see what I am talking about. You could someday be in the same situation, wouldn’t you want dignity and respect once you came out? Wouldn’t you want your right to vote or have a firearm? We all would and we all should.
  12. Will work for us. Yes, for us. They are our representative in Congress or as President. We need someone who will listen. Now I understand that they need to go by what the majority of Americans want but not everyone wants the same thing. I want a President who can compromise enough to give us all what we deserve. We need a President who will look at the needs of the all and fulfill that knowing it will give everyone the opportunity they deserve in life.
  13. Will find ways to make all businesses pay a living wage in all countries. You want the truth in why your jobs are going to other countries. Here it is. Those countries pay their workers a dollar a week and force them to live at the job to make money. If the whole world made a law stating everyone makes the exact same wage, with the same benefits, and the same hours to work, then we will see less moving of factories to other countries and more people living life as they should. It could be the one move that could end world hunger.
  14. Will stand by our Ambassadors and citizens abroad. There are so many examples I could give you but I think you all know. We need someone who can send in lawyers, who can get our citizens out, or can provide healthcare when in need.
  15. Will allow immigrants who come through proper channels and will return those who come in illegally. I have no issues with anyone who is an immigrant, but I don’t think you should be allowed to stay illegally. If you want to stay, then I think you need to apply for citizenship or an extended visa. I don’t think anyone should be allowed to stay in a country illegally. No other country allows this, why should we? It isn’t about race or being an immigrant, it is about how you got here. I think this is our one saving grace if we want to stop human trafficking on this planet as well. We need all countries on board with this.
  16. Isn’t interested in hiding information from Americans but is willing to be honest and truthful about facts. I think this says it all. Look at the lies and cover ups we all keep denying is happening this election year. Trump may not be all that mature, but at least he didn’t steal from the White House nor lied about something happening when he knew it happened. He doesn’t hide his bankruptcies but has used them as learning experiences. I wish we could say the same about all our politicians.
  17. Willing to fight injustices and make a more loving, peaceful planet that is safe and abundant for all. This some will say is a fantasy, but I say it can happen. We can make a better planet if we all work together and set aside petty ideals. We all want the same thing. We all want a roof over our head, our pets, food, clothes, and most of all love. We all want our families safe. We all want to enjoy our planet and its many pleasures without worrying about being blown up. We can do this. We must do this. We have to find ways to use less and live more. We can do this as a whole planet where no one goes hungry and everyone has. It can be done. We just all need to agree on it.
  18. Respect all. This is important folks. It really is. Do you really want someone in office that just cares about him or herself? Do you want someone there who is just in it for the money and perks? Don’t you want someone who is going to help create a society where everyone is equal and no one is abused not even a bug crawling on the ground. I know, some bugs deserve to die but if we are really honest with ourselves we know, that bug has a life and it deserves to live it. I just don’t believe it deserves to live if it is destroying a tree. To that tree, that bug is a parasite. Maybe we need a vaccine against bugs for the trees? But then, even that can cause cancer and we need less cancer on this planet and more life!

My business plan for the 1.4 Billion Dollar Powerball Lottery Winnings

I hear plenty of people say, “I want to win the lottery so I don’t have to work”.  I, on the other hand, want to work! I have a ton of dreams that I need an investor for. Since banks won’t lend me the money for my dreams to come true, then I have to try elsewhere. I figure if I win the lottery then it is like everyone in the universe becoming my investor. They all believe in my dream.
What are my dreams? Well most are to put other people to work. I asked a bank recently for a loan to put in a charging station. I was laughed at for that one since they have no idea who in the U.P. would become my client and they said if a gas station came to them to request this, they would fund that. A charging station is a fill-up station for hybrid cars. Think about all the savings we would have with hybrids and all the tourist that could then fill-up here with their hybrid cars.
The next dream is to buy some old motel/hotels and turn them into stunning spas! I want to take all the old rooms and make them into affordable offices for people in the healthcare realm. Think of the chiropractors, doctors, nurses, massage therapists, and beauticians all in one spot.  I want physical therapists and personal trainers on the spot giving people the best workout. This way you don’t become injured and if you are injured you can become healthy. I want hotels that already have the pool, sauna, and hot tub! It will make the conversion easier.
Next will be to get our mechanic business all the equipment that needs to set up fully. We have  already added in the snow removal to the business but we need equipment. To be fully functioning we need snow plows, ice/sand trucks, and all the technology to fix your car. Then it is off to hire great mechanics. Since I hate it when people say get this fixed, charge you an arm and a leg, but then that wasn’t what needed to be fixed or they fix it wrong, I want mechanics who are willing to go the distance. You have to know what you are doing. Be an expert and a professional. Know that you need to charge but be flexible and most importantly fix what is really wrong the right way! Honesty and integrity are important!
I would love to open a restaurant. Not really on my to do list but something that would be beneficial to my spa. I like different ethnic food and I love it when it is cooked authentically. I think it would be wonderful to offer vegan and vegetarian dishes from around the world. You can get a hamburger anywhere but where can you get the best soups, sandwiches, salads, and cuisines that offer zero meat.
I really want a coffee shop. That is my dream job. To smell coffee all bloody day long! I want to be able to sell you a can of coffee along with a cup. That is the most awesome idea I have! I would love to have an in house band there as well playing cool jazz in the background. I use to want it to be a bar but I love coffee more than alcohol and I think it would be better for all society. This way someone fighting an addiction can come in without temptation knocking at the door. It would be great to have wifi in there as well.
Then there is my farming. This year we planted tobacco and found out it will grow here! Next is to try coffee. I want to build a heated barn for the horses and chickens. Oh I can see my chickens now! The look on their faces as they get into their nesting boxes all warmed up with heat! They may never want to leave! They love mealworms and I can see them chasing each other around a heated barn wanting that one worm. Farming takes a ton of equipment. I need the equipment and farm hands for harvesting. That should put a few people to work! I hope they love coffee as much as I do. I need to plant corn, wheat, oats, and veggies for my chicken feed. I bet the horses can eat that as well. Think of the yummy corn bread! I also need a functioning building to grind all the corn, wheat, and oats to make flour and feed with.
Then there is charity. I wish I always had money to help someone when they need it most. Someone has a fire and I don’t have money to even help them buy clothes. I can go through mine and give them what I can, but that doesn’t get a new house built for them. Some have insurance for that but not everyone does. What about those with medical bills? It would be great to give them some extra cash or pay for a procedure they need. I could give money to places that help people with their rent, heat, lights, and food. I could help with the homeless.
Then there are the animals. I would love to set up a Mr. Nose fund to help with TNR for ferals, low income spaying/neutering, and rescues. Then I could put together the Dirt Bag fund. My Dirty, who is again gone, was found after 4 months with an embedded collar. I didn’t have the money but I figured it out. It would have been great if our local shelter had the funding to help me. I am not sure what to name my special fund for getting pets out of jail when they decide to run away from home. I have to think on a name for that fund. Those animals always think  the grass is greener at the neighbors house. Crazy pets and their wanderings. Always a worry if they will need medical attention because they decided to leave the yard. I would help the no kill as well. I can’t see ending a life because you are homeless. I would love to create an animal shelter that also takes in the homeless people. Those people could help the animals for room and board!
Then there is family. They always need cash and new cars. I don’t mind helping them when they need something like money for gifts or their car needs to be fixed. I know my family. They wouldn’t ask at all for anything! But it would still be nice to be able to help them out with a teeny bit of cash.
I would love to help out my friends from time to time as well. They may need money in an emergency. They may need money to start an idea so they can make their own money. They might get into a bind and just need help because of some lesson they need to learn. You never know. It would just be nice to help when needed.
Anyway, that is my business plan to the universe. I hope you will invest in my dreams where banks won’t! As you can see. I have plans! I have ideas! I know people just like me who need help with starting something in life. It is always great to invest in a dream that one can turn into a reality.

A Frosty Sunday Nothing Post

We haven’t had really great weather lately. Frost every night. I had to harvest early. I started canning what I could. The leaves haven’t even changed all the way and we are in the throes of winter. We covered what we couldn’t get to right away. I am grateful we don’t have a big garden. I planted just enough to can a few items. This is my first garden here. When we first moved in, I didn’t have time to plant a garden. It was too late in the season so we ended up with chickens first. Yesterday, we got the coop ready for winter. I need to stock up on hay and pine shavings for winter cleaning. I clean it out as much as I can in the winter since the chickens don’t like to leave the coop much. They really hate the snow.

As you can see, chickens really hate snow. It is hard on their little toes.

We went to Manistique Big Boy for a break from work. Love eating there. Not everyone has a Big Boy but everyone should. On our way there we stopped at Walmart to pick up some supplies and I discovered this gem. Yoopers are ingenious. They find ways to reuse stuff that most people just throw away. We don’t just throw stuff away we can use. We just find a new way of using them like this guy.

Now for the biggest news. I GOT A NEW COFFEE CUP! Yep. Straight from Big Boy. As a matter of fact the name on the cup is what I was thinking about calling this blog until I went with Yooper Story. I did think about calling it Yooper Girl or Yooper Girl in da Woods. I had a ton of ideas. But here it is!!!!!

My new coffee cup!

You gotta admit, this is a great CUP!!!

Baby Baby Needs Coffee! A Nothing Episode From Da Hen House.

babybabyhidesface

Have a wonderful day while we are writing. Just a little post to let you know we are still here. We are working on stories. Baby Baby, Mr. Nose, and myself are keeping busy. We are working on part 3 of the Katie story. We have the book we are working on plus we are working on a fantasy story for fantasy Friday and a mystery for Monday.  Not sure if we will have them done for this week but you will know as soon as they get up.

20229122404_d1914dd286_m

We have been brainstorming on how to make extra cash here on the farm. We were thinking about have a meet the chickens coffee day! We are thinking about having a petting zoo. We are thinking about having an egg day hunt where you can pretend it is Easter and look for eggs around the yard. Could even get out the tractor and wagon for hay rides!

Who needs cats when a rooster will do?
Who needs cats when a rooster will do?

This young rooster is competing with the cats! He is mousing. I had to get a picture of him out mouse hunting.

Found out I won’t be going back to work as soon as I thought. Looks like more problems with the liver and pancreas. That means I keep selling eggs and finding other ways to make money with the farm until I can get back. I can’t do anything to strenuous right now which sucks. Good thing Dave and the girls can clean the coop.

May your moon shine brightly. May your harvest be abundant.

Sunday’s Best Round Up News About Nothing At All

The best news I have for you all is…………The chicken coop only needs a new door and some siding. We took the old door and put it on til we can get a new one. We have the roof up and the chickens in. They even have a porch. After my surgery I will take newer pics of the new coop with all the tools cleaned up but I do have some from today.

19818218173_3c15bd7cf1_m20412954326_2f7d9da2be_m

The chickens are really excited about their new porch. Our big, fat, mean roo is already thinking he is cock of the walk on the porch.

Cheech and Chong seem to not really care about anything but worms.

20251339428_484576c004_m

We tore down the old coop. It served its purpose until this one was made. A moment of silence for the old coop!

My rockstar is trying to be a farmer today. lol.

20251763780_145c6a3e57_m

Isn’t she cute?! Yeah she will go far in the modeling world.

Tonight we have thunderstorms which sucks. Last night we had the best sunset. Well, until the next best sunset anyway.

0808152121a08081521250808152121

I only had my flip phone to take the sunset photos so they aren’t spectacular. Neither is this picture of so called deer. I wish I would have taken my Fire phone. You can’t even see the deer in this picture.

I have the best cat ever. I just love sitting around talking to my Dirt Bag. He is so cute and lovable. He sits and actually meows back to me like we are having a conversation.

20251172388_d1e8a05a25_m

There he is sitting like a prince. He thinks he is king of the homestead!

I had a fellow blogger give me some excellent advice. She told me about EverNote. Holy crap Batman! That is an excellent program. It is like OneNote on steroids. If you need something to house your articles and let you write at the same time, get Evernote. I just love it.

May your rain fall softly. May your rooster crow at dawn.

A Thursday Episode About Nothing!

I SOLD EGGS TODAY!

 I know. I know. Big whoop. But to me it means I have less eggs in my fridge. I get two dozen eggs a day and that is way, way, way too many for a family of four to eat. I usually bring some down to my cousin and sister. I give them to friends and any other relative I can think of. I don’t want them to go bad so I give them away. I even take some down to local charities that run food banks to give to anyone who is hungry. I fell blessed to have more than enough eggs to give them away as I see fit.

IMG_20150410_130143_rewind

As you can see, I can get a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes from my hens. I have to hunt for them daily since they will lay some in the coop, some in the woods, and some in the garage. They have a box in the garage they like so I leave it there for them. I get six to nine of my two dozen right in that box.

Mr. Nose is laying here with me. Baby Baby is playing star stable with my daughter. He loves watching the horses run. He loves watching Blue’s Clues too. He now sings heads, shoulders, knees, and toes. It is very funny listening to him sing with Steve.

I have a ton of writing to do. I need to write some posts for blogging 101 and my Saturday story for this blog. I am in a ton of pain so it has been hard to focus on what I need to do. I have a Friday event for my Friday posts. I will be having surgery so I want something in place of me writing a story for you all.

May your sun shine brightly upon your plants. May your canning be filled with the best produce.
