How did it get so Chaotic?

This week just got a little more busy then I had intended..trying to get myself tucked in early at night to reserve energy..

Luckily new workplace is calm and quite warm and inviting.It's just the life that I need to fit into the little spaces in between. With dark setting in so early I don't have time i would like to have with my outdoor critters-and pots have been mischievious with their escape plots so I must keep them in until i can mend their fences !I lost another hen this week to the $%#(* cornfield ! and fox? I won't free range them next year if corn is planted again..too risky and sad!
On a very positive note..visiting daughter in Guelph this Saturday..and showing and selling my art in Local Artsy Christmas show on Sunday..

November to remember

An eventful month indeed..thank goodness for a little sunlight to inspire faith in the universe! Between vet and car bills our wallets are spinning and almost levitating ..Incredibly enough I am enjoying full time work and treasuring my weekends..Hank and Winston have plotted and achieved various escapes into the not so glorious and bleached out cornfield..filling their potbellies with an abundance of dry corn..I think I have finally outwitted them ..but who knows?! Lucky they are driven to remain close by for their nightly gluttonous feed! last night at 2am I received a call from my daughter who screamed into the phone and promptly hung up..Imagine my hysterics? She texted me soon after to say she had dialed the wrong number,sorry,and had not in fact screamed at all ! A bad dream perhaps? hmmmm..her social life is definitely more hopping then mine.but I appreciate when my lovely REM is not interrupted for folly and mayhem!.ahh long distance parenting!

Well still presnow here although we also purchased our first snow thrower ..so bring it on!
