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.

Plodding Along

My older sister Patti emailed me, asking if I was okay. It's because I usually would have updated my journal with my trip to see Sherry. I am okay, I just came down with a really bad sore throat that is easing into congestion and drainage now. Last night I woke up at 1 a.m. and every swallow hurt, but you know how it is, if you dont swallow long enough, your throat dries, and then it hurts even more to swallow. I finally got back to sleep about 4 a.m. and then the alarm went off at 4:45 a.m. to get Ian up for work. I did, barely, and layed right back down. I woke up again this morning about 8:30, but still felt bad so I went back to sleep and the next time I woke up it was just after 12 p.m.! I got on up. I had to. I had to go get groceries today. Animal and people groceries. As long as I kept moving I was okay...but now I am home...and I was doing good to put up the cold stuff.

So I feel like a slug, with the slime and all. I am going to lay down til Ian gets home from work. I fixed some home made chicken noodle soup last night, so thats what we are having tonight too. Thank goodness for leftovers.

I am behind on laundry, cleaning, dishes, animal tending, and journals. Tomorrow I will spend a lot of time catching up on all of these things. Right now, I feel like I need to lay down and take a nap, til say oh...I dont know, tomorrow morning?

I do have a lot of pictures and a lot to tell about visiting Sherry, but I am just not up for it today. Maybe tomorrow. I did have a nice time though and we were able to catch up without a lot of interference...neighbors, Kelsey, distractions were not there.

Night night y'all...tomorrow is another day, a fresh page, a clean slate. I will see what I can do with that after some good rest.

I have been wondering why you haven't told us about your trip. I am sending up prayers for you to soon be well Kelly. Love and hugs, Helen

Katie has the same thing this morning.  She has a runny nose and lose you know what.  I had to bathe her again this morning.  Just yuck!

I'm sorry you are feeling that bad.  Take care of yourself and call me anytime you want to.  Hopefully, you'll just sleep until you get better.
