Today on Tuesday
I thought I should show you a few things I will be putting
into the giveaway, so you don't think I will be putting old
sweat socks and used rubber bands. I have been making pumpkins
this week. Last year I got the bright idea to save stems from my real
pumpkins and dry them to use them this year, I love how they look.
Here is a closer look so you can see the stem. I have always
had a thing about texture. Smooth and rough, new and old.
I don't know what I was thinking when I said in my giveaway post
I would pick someone on the 29th what I meant was the 22.
I guess I am trying to rush July. So I will pick someone on Thursday
night and post on Friday.
Well onto other things. I am supposed to be taking care of my SIL place
while they are gone. I don't know why she asks me because every time
they leave and I take care of things something dies. I mean freak accidents,
like one year her rooster got his spur caught in the fence and when I went that
night to feed, he was dead, hanging upside down.
It doesn't matter either because I am a jinx. She had seen the fox around and
I had seen its tracks but I figured it had moved on. Yesterday afternoon, I let the
chickens out into their little yard for some outside time.
Her rooster always jumps the fence and comes over to my yard, he always has
one hen that comes over with him.
I saw them out taking in the sights yesterday afternoon, and it was pretty quiet
all day, I sat in my office and sewed with the door open so I never heard him squawk
or anything but last night when I went to check them for the night, his
hen was gone. You know foxes like short, plump hens the best right?
So now when she gets back, I have to tell her she is one hen short. Gosh, it makes me
sick. So now no outside time for her hens. They will be in solitary confinement, locked up
with Mr. Rooster who well lets say, he likes to beat the hens up all of the time.
He is a Rhode Island Red who is very big, he is as tall as my knees.
So life around here at its finest. So let me know who else wants to be in a giveaway.
Now you know it isn't sweat socks and used rubber bands. :)
I hope you have a lovely Tuesday,
