Snow? Yes, it just snowed here for about ten minutes! Why is it cold? Why is it SNOWING? Its supposed to be SPRING!
Okay, I had to get that out. Now onto other things. :)
Lets see...Thursday I got the other two emu babies...Friday Ian was off so we went out to Walmart, Big Lots and had supper at Sonnys BBQ.
I finished up the Golden Phonix pen, what was that..Thursday? I think so. I spent all day Saturday making the Sultans a new pen. Thank goodness they are in a nice roomy new pen now instead of in that cage on the porch or roaming around the porch pooing it up. (I felt sorry for them cooped in that cramped cage all day) Poo cleans up though..which I will do.
Ian had a birthday party to go to Saturday. I say just Ian because it is one of HIS friends. Even though I have recently struck up a friendly acquaintance with his friends girlfriend..I didnt go to his friends 40th birthday party. Why?
I found out from Brian that it was more of an adult party. What? What was going to go on there? Strippers? Porno flicks? What???
Turns out while I was talking to Brian about this..Ian overheard me, I told him what was up and he says, "Yeah, I know, it is. Hey, its his party."
Yeah, but if he wants any forty year old friends to come he has to realize that most of us have families now. He might still be stuck in 1985 but WE are not.
Brian decided he wasnt going because it was his weekend to have his twin daughters and he was most certainly not going to ditch them to go to the party. Turned out later the girls mom asked to keep them for Easter, something about they do something special every Easter..blah blah...so Brian said okay. He still didnt go to the party though, he said he had work to do on his new house.
I told Ian he could have any kind of silly old party he wanted but I wasnt going to leave Shelby here and go to the party. I didnt ever really want to go anyway.
Ian left about 4, which was early. The party didnt start til 6. Ian wanted to get there early so he could come home early.
Poor man, his friend thought it was going to be an all out party fest I guess. He was telling Ian after his parents left, he was going to break out the heavy duty booze and they could really party.
Ian said he would be coming home about then...lol. We are 40 years old people...time to settle down a bit. We want to go to bed early and wake up without a hangover thankyou. ;) We love our sleep and dont want to miss it.
Sunday Shelby got up and had her Easter basket. She ODed on candy of course. Not really, she didnt make herself sick, but she did put away some candy! ;)
I fixed a Ham, mac and cheese, jalepeno rolls, and corn on the cob. I dont know what happened, I had every intention of having green beans with it too..but it just didnt ever happen. Nobody seemed to be the wiser.
It started turning off cold here fast when the sun was going down so I made an early day of it and came on in. The wind was brutal on me all weekend and I had had enough of my hair lashing at my eyes and constantly having bits of dirt and trash blown into my eyes.
Troy and Eddie are doing great. I took a few more pictures and a really cute video of them. Last week I went out and found them a nice little house for the two of them. I shopped aroundonline to see what was available at places like Petsmart.com but didnt really find anything I really liked. Most were plastic or something you had to put together yourself, and for that, they were all overpriced in my opinion.
I knew they had some doghouses unpainted but put together over at the feed store that I bought the goats from. I called them up and asked how much their biggest dog house cost. 159.00. She couldnt tell me the dimensions of the house. I knew on the way to the feed store there is a outbuilding store type place. I would stop in there and see what they had available before I went on to that feed store.
Well it turned out they had really nice, heavy, real wood, painted, shingled houses. Did I mention heavy? Wow, were they heavy.
So I got them to load one into the truck and strap it on good and I went the back roads home slowly. Ian managed to unload it when he got home from work, but it was a strain.
Here are some pictures and the video. Ian made the door to go on the goat house so we could close them up at night and they would be safe. I still have to paint it. Oh by the way, I got this much nicer house for the same price as the unpainted one at the feed store.
Some folks asked some questions I would like to answer in a seperate entry. I will do that another time, probably tomorrow morning. Now Shelby and I are finished with school and I need to get this house picked up! :)
Hope everyone is having a nice Monday. :)
