All-Over-The-Map Post!


Well…farm life continues. Doug found one of our ducks dead in the field next door. We saw another %$#$% chicken hawk the other day. They are beautiful, but they are MEAN! They will not leave our birds alone. This is the first time it has gone after one of the ducks though. It's either that or a coyote...but it looks like the work of the hawks. Anyone know how to get rid of them???

I have to say the ducks aren’t too bright though. Yesterday one of them was standing on their frozen solid kiddie pool “pond” looking down and quacking. Quack, quack, quack. Silly goose. Ar. Ar. Doug and Joanna were making TERRIBLE duck jokes! You know, "I guess it just quacked up." "Do you think we'll get a bill?" AWFUL.
Then I needed a bunny fix after that...so Doug brought a couple of them in. OH my GOSH I don't know how I'm going to let any of them go! They are all so stinkin' cute! I mean, come on... Just LOOK at these faces!
Jacob loves them too...As soon as we get back from Florida we have to take them to the vet, get them separated boy-girl wise, and then figure out what to do. I'm going to keep probably 2 females. If we can't adopt them out, we'll probably give them to a no-kill shelter. No one is eating these babies!

Here's me with my purple hair...you can sort of see it...at least I remembered to smile!

Well, the follow up with my doc today went well...he said I DON'T have asthma! So Hallelujah there! It's probably an allergic reaction that presents as asthma, but I don't have chronic asthma. I didn't think so....I hadn't ever wheezed like that before...SO YAY! The prednisone is making me crazy though. Here is it, 12:16 AM...can't sleep, and ridiculously hungry. Go Lucky Charms.

Anywho...kind of all over the place, but that's me right now! Happy Tuesday!

The bunnies are cute. I had to laugh because I think I wrote in your last post that my son gets this way with asthma steroids. Glad you don't have asthma, otherwise you'd be on these a lot.

:D Admit it - we quacked you up.
