Wow, this past week has been crazy!!
The Hubs has been put on 60 hour weeks at work, so the one day of the week he is home, this is what I see:
I spent the last two days doing up crock pot meals. Man, what a lot of work! This time I had a lot of help and everyone kicked in and we all got it done. But, it was so much more stressful with so many people involved even though, I wouldn’t have got it done by myself so I am very grateful.
All the family (except Justin) was here today and we had a nice meal at noon time and then over in the afternoon everyone left. Even The Hubs. He had to go back to work. As a true testament to the fact that I am tired, I took not one picture today! Shame on me! What was I thinking??
My in-laws were here and I was very glad to have them for a visit. The house always feels extra empty when it is so full and then Wham! It’s empty.
In other news, there has been lots of mowing and weed-eating going on around here and I’m hoping for some rain as everything is starting to wilt. I don’t want another drought like last summer so please, Lord, bring us some rain. I need things to stay green for my peace of mind.
That’s a pretty good mow job, eh?
Thank you, thank you very much.
Oh, and please pay no attention to the solid bed of weeds where my once pretty flower bed was next to the house. I just don’t have it in me to pick all those weeds, and almost all of my pretty pink azaleas bit the dust in last year’s drought. So sad!
This is my child of the corn. I would say Children of the Corn, but I only had one here for this totally random picture. Justin doesn’t like to pose like Knucklehead does so here he is:
And yes, he has my flip flops on.
Shhh! Don’t tell him I told you.
And, he won’t be so happy when we have to start picking all the corn.
One thing about Mom with her Alzheimer’s. Dad is her comfort zone, so where he goes she follows.
If they could find a way to drive the tractor and the mule at the same time and hold hands, I’m sure they would do it.
Feeding time around here looks like this:
They have feed in feeders, but corn is their daily treat. They love it.
This is frizzie. She’s a busy body.
But she’s really cute.
As is my Joan Jett, who is definitely not a Joan. More like a Johnny Jett. He tried to crow the other day, and it was a very pathetic attempt.
The babies that were born on my birthday, are getting so big. Yay! What a great present!
So, I totally have to name one of them Junie.
There are five babies, but they are fast and the most I could get in one picture was four of them, along with one of the Mama’s butt.
So, what’s up chicken butt?
Sorry, I just had to.
And the last bit of news from Around the Compound.
RIP Pat Benatar.
Unless you are on a field trip.
If you have been taken, (stupid Chicken-hawk, or Coyote) Karma will avenge you!
We await your return.
