It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. Are ya ready? Skip this post if you are in a hurry.
Last night I swept (I forgot there was a shovel behind me) the sidewalk, hoping to keep the snow from accumulating too much by the back door. The broom broke.
Thismorning I splashed FF all over myself after JUST getting out of the shower.
I walked out to the back sunroom/covered porch/whatever you want to call it, and there is now covering one windowsill.
I walked outside to several inches of snow covering the sidewalk where I had swept, and NOTHING on the sidewalk or driveway where I hadn't. Nothing by any outbuilding except the coop. I am still laughing at this point.
I managed to get down the hill without falling, opened the coop, and there was a pile of snow inside where it blew in through the wire above the door. I fed the FF inside since the wind had blown 1-2 feet of snow into the run, and the wind is still blowing hard. I checked the water and dry feed. Now I am not laughing. There has been a little blood on the feeder twice in the past two weeks. This was more than a little smeared blood. This was the feeder is covered. No feeder showing through.
IDK who is bleeding, but I have an idea. I do not have an idea what to do about it. If it is Red, I can put him and a few girls in the nest room while I am gone for Christmas. I can actually put him in there at night too. The fights are happening early in the morning. I don't hear or see anything at all during the day that tells me what is going on.
So we are talking about gifts for our husbands. I didn't know what to do either. I knew he needed jeans, but he knew he was getting them, and told me to buy them in a store. Oh, yes, Mr. "we weigh a ton" I am going to just walk in the store, and buy you jeans from the rack. I can barely buy clothes from just any store! Speaking of which, why do stores offer big guy sizes, but not big gal sizes?
So... I had to order his jeans, and whatever else I was going to get him. One problem after another, and by the time it was done, I was a few hours late putting my order in, so I was told the gifts would arrive between the 27th and January 14th. I called my sister in N.J. and she went to a store nearby to pick up some audio books for Mr. Trucker. I now I have something to give him Christmas morning when we have my 6 siblings and their families watching to see who got what (so I HAD to have SOMETHING for him to open!)
Now we are going to laugh again. The jeans showed up yesterday morning, and the gift that was supposed to arrive in January (a Steelers tumbler) arrived twenty minutes ago. The last gift is another audio book. If it doesn't show up Monday morning, that will be ironic. For all the book stores I can go to, I could have just picked the book up!
So... That is my long story.
No, it isn't. My front door has air pouring in from the side, and the window I am sitting in front of now is super leaky too. Anyone have one of those window cover kits I can use?
Now I am done.
