About Me

My photo
I am a 42 year old woman that is about as happy and content as one person can be. My husband of 21 years and our 15 year old daughter live on five and a half acres out in the country. We moved from the city four years ago and never looked back. I homeschool our daughter. We also love our animals. Our daughter has a miniature horse and two rabbits. We also have a border collie, two cats (again), two pot belly pigs, four peafowl, three emus, 2 llamas and an undetermined number of chickens, lets just say ohhh about 200. I have many breeds, from layers to fancy chickens. I love poultry shows, I love fowl in general as I have come to find out through having more than just chickens. Chickens will always be my first love though. I do show some of my birds occasionally.

No Show...No Call

Well, here is a BIG surprise...

The lady with the big order of chicks...didn't call this morning. She said she would call when she was leaving...which would be about 8 a.m. Time rocks on...no phone call. Nobody showing up at the door. I don't know what I expected. I knew she would do this...so...her birds are already spoken for by two other people. I have to make room for the new ones coming out. If she calls I won't be answering the phone. She can forget it. I don't have time to waste on people like her.

We are getting a spot of rain right now...as always it is welcome. I picked nine cucumbers out of the garden this morning. I knew Ian hadn't been checking and I didnt want them to get too big and be seedy. I had one almost right after I got in and washed them up. Nothing like a home grown cucumber.

I am cleaning out all my cabinets and drawers in the kitchen today. The cabinets are white, so they needed to be wiped down and cleaned as every little thing shows up on them. I reckon the folks that lived here before never used the kitchen because everything was spotless before I got here and cooked almost every night! LOL They led busy lives though. She didn't strike me as the type to cook a lot. They seemed like the eat out type.

Teddy has not called me yet today to confirm her and her family coming this weekend to visit. I feel like I am trying to track down people all the time. I can't seem to get a hold of anyone. Shelby asked if she had called and I told her that she hadn't and that I was not going to call her. She told me she would call me today...and I am holding her to it. If she doesn't call, I am going to assume they are not coming and let that be the end of it.

Well, time marches on...I better get back on that kitchen...hope everyone is having a good day and staying out of this heat.

So I guess the two you have on the waiting list for those chicks will be glad she was a no show. I am glad that you are getting some rain. I noticed on radar yesterday it looked like most of GA would get some rain but it did skip West GA though. My daughter has been watering her little garden and said she got her first squash yesterday. Said she cut it up, battered it, put butter on it an microwaved it. Said it was good. I like cucumbers but they have to be those burpless kind as the regular kind don't sit well on my tummy. Yes, I stay inside when it get really hot. Hugs, Helen

Oh how frustrating it is when people say they are going to do something and then don't.  I would never deal with that woman again, besides if she is that unreliable she may not be a very good "chicken mom".  LOL  Cucumbers sound good, I like cucumber & onion salad - I don't have a veggie garden though, the deer always ate everything before it grew.  I hope you hear from Teddy so you aren't surprised if they show up.  
Take care,
