Vent Vent Vent!!! Sorry things are slow...

As I write this I am wishing I were elsewhere. This isn't a pity party, it is a blowing of steam, Vent..

 No energy to craft or do much of anything. Spent Monday the 6th going to Chiro, then went to my Dr, he sent me to the hospital by ambulance, sent home Monday evening, not a heart attack. (Great!) Tuesday (7th) go to town with mom and end up back in hospital. After all said and done sent home Wednesday, no heart attack, lots of bruises.. Had lots of test and a Angiogram. Nice to know it's not my heart, but what the ???? is it?

Still in pain off and on, off if I don't do anything on if I do... Have a Dr appointment tomorrow. I'm hoping they can get to the bottom of this fast. Not good when you scare your Dr.  But he scared me when I saw his face as the EMT's were working with me. We can LOL about it now.

Boy have I-itis don't I. Ha! Need to get better as there is so much to get done, Yard needs mowing, chickens need care (have 8 new Araucana babies) The Bantam sisters hatched them. See pictures below. Look at the tails in the first picture, these ladies were upset with me as the eggs were hatching.
 Everyone up and eating, then all snuggled and ready for bed.
 I love chickens!!!
Need to be outside and taking care of them and right now I can't......... :-(
Have plants and bulbs that need to be planted and weeds that need pulled. I don't have time to be sick.

But I guess sometimes you don't get a choice do you. Mom says this too shall pass. I love how positive and up-building she is, when you can tell she is scared a bit too.  I am so glad I have a loving relationship with her and my hubby. He was pretty scared too. Stayed in hospital until late. Told him to go home and get some sleep I wasn't going anywhere. Our 2 youngest boys had to come and see me too. It was so sweet of them to take the time and make the trip. Mo had to return home, but staid an extra day just to give me hugs. Love that boy.. LOL (30years old) Parker stayed until Friday, he got up and fixed his dad's lunch and breakfast so I could sleep. Oldest son checked in by phone as he has his family and work. But had to make sure all things were going okay. 

The congregation has been a loving support too. It was so good to see everyone Sunday, but couldn't wait to get home and in bed. (rolling eyes) We even had visitors in the afternoon but I missed them as I was sleeping the pain away. 

Hopefully I can get something done soon to post on a positive note soon.
Thanks for letting me vent.

Spring has Sprung...

Well the Osprey are back and nesting on the bridge, the Turkeys are out in full feathered beauty. And our Japanese Bantams have just hatched 2 of nine eggs last night. I went out to lock up the chickens and take a head count and pick up the last of the day's laying. I have to check under the 3 Bantams as the big hens will push them off the nest to lay their eggs, (rolling eyes) I reached under and to my surprise I got peeps calling out from under them. Here is the first picture.
 This morning when I went to let them out and check the 3 hens they were content (see below)
 Then when I went to check to see if any more had hatched I got this response... Look at those tail feathers all spread out. They were not happy with me at all. I just felt under and there were still 6 eggs so I left them alone. Will check them later.
 Now I had to run into Junction City, with mom and when I cam home I had to stop on the bridge as it looks like someone might have hit it again. (road workers fixing it) I took the opportunity to take pictures of the wild turkey's. I never have my camera ready when they are out. But this time as I had to wait for traffic, I got 2 pictures. I find them both ugly and beautiful. LOL

Look at those tail feathers... I find them so amazing. Well off to see the Chiropractor real soon. Hope my back is out and not something else going on. Have a good week everyone!!

Just a little quick post to show you a smile

This is my oldest sisters daughter, Lorna. She has been asking to learn to crochet. So I sat with her for a bit and she picked it up so stinking fast. She even picked up on her mistakes before getting to far along. So I showed her how to remove stitches to the problem and go back. This is her first potholder for her mama. First time to try and finished her first project in one afternoon. Now she is working on a scarf, double stranded... All on her own. Isn't that smile saying a lot. ;-)
Have a good Monday!

A new card, Thanks to Gerda Steiner Designs

I just love chickens... As if you didn't already know. lol Well when I saw this digi I had to have it!
It is colored in memory of our old cat growing up, his name was Spoof. It looked as if someone had dipped a paint brush in black paint and drew a line from his forehead to his nose. A black spot on his ear and back and tail. Other than that he was white as clean snow. Everyone said he was ugly as a kitten, after he grew up he was a love!! I had pictures of him sleeping in the sunshine with baby ducklings, baby rabbits and chicks. But let a wild animal on the place and he would kill it.
So with no further ado's...
On the inside it says "To let you know. You've been on my mind"
I am entering this on Gerda's blog challenge. She has a lot of talented people posting lovely cards.
Come join the fun!
