Hmmm today, I went to West Plains, we were going to pick up the wood for the roof, but it was stolen, no kidding in broad daylight…emmmm Made me very angry since like my name was all over it, they told me how sorry they were about it and how they are going to make sure it does not happen again. They told me they have been being robbed a lot as of late and Meeks is such a nice store, it just seems a shame. They said the police there have chanced down people stealing from them before again in broad day light, really what is the world coming to when you steal scrap wood…so it will be a few weeks before they cut again and we will just have to wait, in the mean time every rain storm terrifies me and I keep hoping to get the roof done before May, rainy season here.
We left a little late today around ten am and drove up to see how the animals swap was going, no one was there, lots of traffic and if it was not so cold, it would have had been a good day to have been there I think. Might try for next week…I have a bunch of ducks in need a new home and some pigeons and a bunch of chickens I am over as well as some baby goats. Might have to work on horses, don’t remember…
Had Chinese food, it is always so good, mostly because I do not have to cook or do a dish...he he he
We were going to go to Wal-mart up there and get a few things, but it was cold and we decided just to get our little biological air sensors (finches) and some gold fish instead, I swear I could have brought the whole store home. So many cool and sweet animals. But I just bought what we needed and found out because I have the right papers she would like to buy babies back from us. Never say no to presold birds. She will pay a lot less for these birds than I could get on the open market for them, but she will buy them all at once. The more feed you put into any animals the larger the investment, the more that can go wrong.
We had to hold off on giving away Rachael’s horse, because she needs it to show this Aug. She did not think about this till today, I am glad we did not give her away and then have to go out and get another horse. We are giving her, her own pasture. Which is not a problem since we bought fencing. Than if Rachael still wants to get rid of her, no problem.
So much going on it is a little hard to keep track of it all. I still have so much to get it is over whelming…so I will get off of here for a while, finish my email and watch Babylon 5 in hopes of a Doctor Who tomorrow, can’t wait till Torch Wood returns…ughhh. Farming is so hard without good tell…lol
Eww have to remember to set quail eggs in the morning…
Now to the hubbies post:
We love you all and hope that you have a blessed day..
