Chicken madness

The chickens .... well last summer C found a bunch of chickens where he was working. Of course we took them lol . From what we can tell they are some small breed of bantams. Now all of this time we've let them have free run in the yard . Until last week. I was heading out to pickup Sissy when I get to the end of the drive way and what do I see??????? 1 of the roosters with all 4 of the little hens crossing the main road :0. We get home and tell Hubby. So Hubby decides it's time to coup them. As he's adding their coup to the side of the main coup we got to listen to the car horns has they ran back and forth cross the road. OK coups done . Hubby waits until they all head in to roost and grab them ( these chickens can fly like peasants lol )and get them in their new home. So all's well right????? WRONG lol. The next morning I head down to free the chickens and the little buggers worked open the wire and escaped. Ok I tried to grab them ha ha ha than went to get Hubby. I stayed in the house to get Bear ready for school. Watching from the window I see Hubby get them from across the road back into the yard than the fun begins. Chasing them here and there .....cursing ...finally he comes up and let's Miss B out . Still watching Miss B rounds one up and drives it to the gate Hubby grabs it , than I see 3 heading up here so I toss on my crocs and head out to push them back down the hill. Just for the record crocs are not the best thing to wear when you are chasing chickens . So on it goes we chase them around the pond, around the enclosure, across the creek, repeat. A half hour later I think we have them all , Hubby yells 1 left... uh... OK where is the little bugger?????? Why she's under the coup. Okay we can't get in there and of course she's out of reach what to do???????? Send in the dog. I go around back. She gets in and gets behind her and..... she flies past Hubby. ( Insert cursing here) I take off running along the creek to cut her off she sees me and freezes , Hubby grabs her and puts her in . I head back up to the house to a laughing Bear who tells me " To bad I didn't grab the camrea I cound have used the pictures for blackmail" lol lol lol. It's he cute.Meanwhile we're looking to buy a couple of more chickens. Yes the madness never ends lol.
So that's it for now. Til next time have a great day.

Back in the saddle

I'm back !!!!!!! I still have a bit of a cold ( sucker will not give up the ghost lol ) but I'm almost back to my abnormal self ; ) . Everyone else is better . Thanks for all of the well wishes. So things here are moving along. When I was stuck on the couch I made Sissy a shawl. Than a girlfriend had some yarn she was never going to use so she gave it to me. I made her 1 year old a small pocket book. But in my sickness induced fog I forgot to take pics lol. The house is looking better thank god . Spring cleaning will start soon. Much to the family's horror. The big kids are moving again ( don't ask ) so we'll be sorting their stuff ( again horror).The weather here has been strange to say the least. One day it's warm the next it's cold. Last night it was a whole 12 degrees. I can't wait until it makes up it's mind and spring finally gets here. Tomorrow the kids have a day off so we're going to work in the Bear's room. "M" gave Bear his old computer desk. We're going to move it into his room tomorrow and put the desk in there now in storage until the big kids get settled, than it will go to Buddy.Bera is looking forward to the new desk but not the cleaning that he knows will be done lol.Sissy passed her driving test ( God help us all lol ) and Buddy got his permit. Now I can be driven around lol lol lol .
So that's it for now. The kids are off to school and it's time to get some stuff done, hopefully :). More to come . Til next time have a great day.

We've had a run of sickies here. Bear and Hubby ended up with nasty stomach bug. Bear was feeling better by Tuesday and went to school. Hubby was feeling better the next day . Sissy got sick on Wednesday but went back to school on Thursday. Buddy ... well so far so good. Me ??? I ended up with a head cold that is still hanging on. I was able to get the living room done on Tuesday with some help from "M" but the house is mess. I'm OK with the mess ( I must be sick ) . I'll get to to sooner or later.

Besides all of that things are good. I have a couple of other posts running around in my fogged brain. Along with some craft projects . Hopefully I'll get them straight soon lol ( meds do your thing). With that I'm off. Til next time . Stay well and have a great day.
