Damn You Winter!

We got dumped on by this last storm. Woke up to two and a half feet of new snow. Add one more snowday on top of February Vacation. We also lost power for about 5 hours. I have been shoveling lots and lots of snow all day....

February Vacation

Already onto the latter half of my vacation. Never long enough. My mother has been up visiting, helping me get my house cleaned and organized. She got me the Wii Fit and we have spent hours playing it and laughing at each other. My legs and arms are sore...don't know if it is from the Wii or from shoveling.

More snow last night and today...when will winter end? Just as snow starts to melt down and pathways clear, it snows again.

A Bloody Mess

Went out to feed and water the chickens before work this morning, only to open up the coop to a bloody (and poopy!) mess. One of the guinea hens seems to have done something to her foot (toe?) and was dripping blood. At the time I couldn't tell where it was coming from, and had to get to work..... so I left her. And felt horrible. Spent the day hoping I wouldn;t come home to a dead hen. After work I checked again... She was out and about with all of her friends, leaving a trail of blood drops where she had been. She ate fine and seemed to be walking fine.
After watching her for a while I came in to drop my work stuff, etc..... and read some blogs. I went to check in on Danni at
and laughed when I saw it was a post about clipping her rooster's nails AND she happened to take a picture of the styptic solution she applied to her rooster's bleeding nail! What a coincidence. I hadn't thought of that. A quick phone call to the local farmers union and I was out the door to pick some up.

I know, I know....

Regular posting will resume soon. It is really cold here and my funk continues..... I feel like all I have been doing for the last week is complaining about money troubles and work situations and really have no desire to post about, I shall post when I have something else to write about. Hopefully this weekend.
