Unfortunately we did have to cancel my Red Cross CPR/AED/FirstAid class I organized for Saturday. Oh well, we'll reschedule it for next week.
I am so ready for Spring and flowers and warm weather and gardening....

Here's her response to my excited email of "Janet, one of your chickens is sick and I don't know what is wrong. Any ideas?"
Immediately came back her reply, " Is it the older black chicken and not the young black and white chicken? If it is it's called death. She is old and that is what they do just about 24 hours before they die. Any other questions?"
My reply was " Yes, it is the older chicken. YOU THINK SHE IS JUST DYING??? I thought maybe she had a egg stuck or something wrong with her craw or some exotic disease or ......"
My sister..." Joyce, Joyce....what am I going to do with you....Do not overthink the equation....she is old.....she is hunkering down. She is dying. We will all face this process if we live long enough. This time tomorrow when you walk out there, she will be two feet in the air. Pick her up and feed the coyotes on your way to town....aka ...throw her into a ditch as you drive off...just don't do like Edna did (her elderly neighbor) and have the door open, drive through the ditch and fall out of the truck...."
Good golly!!! A dying chicken!!!! I have never heard of a chicken EVER, EVER dying of old age. All our chickens got ate before they died of OLD AGE!!!!
Anyway, I'll spare you photos. And maybe, Tool Belt Jim will give her a decent burial, you think??? Once, she has gone to that chicken heaven in the sky where all good birds surely go.....
I'll keep you posted....

I am blessed in my coming in and my going out. I am covered by the Blood, surrounded by angels, and held up in the Everlasting Arms. The Lord goes before me and surely goodness and mercy follows me all the days of my life.

So one section of the loft has the full size bed in it with my antique rocker and trunk and dresser...
This is a video of the 2010 Cookie Crunch Off. Local businesses/groups have teams which compete in a relay type race to see who can finish their cookies the fastest. Each person on the team has to eat one of each of the 8 different kinds of girl scout cookies. This is the third year in a row that Wal-Mart has won!!!

And the two ladies who instructed the class spent the night at my little "town house". We had a great time visiting and getting better acquainted with one another.
We really are ONE RED CROSS!

Here's a picture from my front door looking across the street. You will notice the street plows have not ventured out yet to clear the streets.

Gracie is taking a quick break from opening presents to visit with Kaden. Let's see, that would make them second cousins.

I'm gonna keep things simple in 2010. I have found that the older I get, the less satisfaction I get out of "things" and pursuing those things that only hold momentary satisfaction. Relationship is the key. My relationship with my Father God and my relationship with those God has placed around me. Gonna enjoy both in 2010 !!
May this be a great and fulfilling year for you too
