    Sometimes, I just hate all the 'hoop-la' that comes along w/ fall... I just want to stay at home and be w/ my chickens and NO one understand.. It's not even Dec. yet and I am already tired of festivals, reunions, ball games and other things going on.. [​IMG] I just want to be a hermit and watch my chickens and snuggle w/ the dogs.. Anyone else?? Do you just want to say "NO thank you" and sit in your backyard w/ your girls???

    I think I will have to change my name to " Dixie hermit' instead of Dixiedoodle....

    This is the time of year when we go out to LIVE in our yards because we've been COOPED up in our AC cooled homes for 6 months.

    And the pool was a tad chilly in the back yard after our morning walk!

    Me too. I love my job but I deal with people that have a lot of stress and emotional issues, so when I get home, I just want to be quiet and regroup. Its great to get to regroup with chickens; I highly recommend it...

    I could not agree more. Thankfully my home and backyard are my sanctuary from the craziness of work and the world. We should all be thankful that we can find peace and rest in our backyards with our happy chickens and family.

    Oh, yeah, this time of year I get Fall Fever. All I want to do is ride my horses, walk the dog, and piddle with my birds.
