Goofy day....

Friday, November 18, 2016

Just one of those..what did I do to deserve this type days! We all have 'em!

I look back and think ..I did have plans for today right? What were they? Not what I ended up doing thas for dern sure!

Twas cold this AM so I drug my feet about getting outside to free the ladies. They are warm and dry with water and nice nests to huddle in so I am sure they do not really care. The geese on the other hand , as soon as they heard my voice set up a Chorus of ..Set Me Free!
They did not learn a thing from the ordeal the other day of waiting till everyone and every thing else was done before I opened their gate. I am wondering if some ancient instinct is bugging them right now as when I let them out they waddle across the smaller chicken yard to the large pasture. Then they will go running and try to fly..Headed south are ya!!
Being domestic geese and rather heavy waddlers they do not fly more than a foot off the ground and only for a few feet before they come crashing to the ground. Poor lil Duck Duck tries to keep up with his larger companions only to be in danger when they do their less than graceful landing routine! So far he has managed to not be a landing pad for them!

An unscheduled trip to town to check on Cell phone malfunction. Did all I know to do and still it was funky so took it in and found that there was a manufacturing issue. Now a new one on its way..hmmm I always wonder if this one was bad and you are sending me one just like it..can I anticipate better luck with product B? We will see how it goes. Gads it seems no time ago at all that the idea of a cell phone was a ...well yah maybe. Now it is more like ..OMG I am lost without it..my entire life is on or in that phone! Yikes..not liking that at all..but indeed ..it is more and more that way!

My DH was asking about a camera and I said the phone has a really good one ..then realized that I have not indeed had a "camera" in my hand in ages..tis all on the phone!
Not sure if that is a good thing or not..but so tis!

Got my groceries for Thanksgiving today..figured if I gotta go to town might as well make the trip worthwhile. Tried to find a really big, like 25 lb turkey..but no such luck..I did score a 21 pounder though..it should do, if not ya'al go fill up on pie!

With the daylight savings time and all my animals are ready to be tucked in by 4:30 ..grief what a change! ..I know winter has yet to even come round..but I am ready for Spring!
My dream idea , for this week, is to have a nice green house so I can garden year round and grow fresh veggies for the table right on thru the winter. Then I checked the prices on the kind of green house I want...hmmm anyone got a lotta money they would like to contribute? heee hee..costs were much higher than I anticipated...oh well dream on aye!

Time to get my nitely , then read a bit and get a good nites snooze!

Have a great weekend all..

    Cold moving in 'round here too! I love your farm stories! Hope the new phone works! Every update brings me more problems. Ack! We don't even carry our camera on trips any more! Just the phone! Happy Thanksgiving!

    Yesterday morning I started out with a thermal top and my down vest, and by the end of the day, the vest was off. This morning it's starting at 36 degrees - chilly for us. I don't think we'll see snow this storm - think it will all be rain, but that's okay. We still need rain here in the northeast. I got my turkey yesterday too! A nice 14 pound bird, and it was on sale for 59 cents/pound! Woo Hoo me!! Yep, like you, haven't used an actual camera in years. Use the phone, then send pictures I really want to keep to my computer. Very seldom print a picture out any more. Your geese really do try to fly?? Poor things!! Yes, I imagine it is some sort of internal clock that's irritating them! Much like the "hibernation" clock that rears it's head in me come winter time. Nothing more I like than curling up with a fleece blanket and watch the snow fall!!
    Have a great Saturday!!

    With our family, so many like white meat that I buy a turkey and then another turkey breast, instead of trying for a huge bird. That way there's plenty of white meat to go around, and still have leftovers!
    Sounds like those feathered friends of yours keep you entertained.

    Was warm this morning and during the day, went outside in a tshirt and no jacket. Once the sun set, the weather shifted. Tonight I had on a long sleeve fleece top and a winter coat and was still shivering (the high winds didn't help matters).

    Hope you stay warm and that your new phone works perfectly!
