we got it done by one…

Posted: December 24, 2008 at 3:19 pm

the house was finished by ten and then i went out to the barn, eva arrived and did the mp building cats and rabbits and then another friend arrived and helped finish the barn. i got all the water jugs filled so we are good if it freezes again. and then i made us tuna sandwiches and hot baileys..mmmmmm.!

my only funny today….. cuz the dogs were all in a bad mood (they didn’t want to stay in the house alone but they didn’t want to help in the snow either…they wanted me in the house with them and were all pissy in the freaking cold)…was…

a little bit sad too, and could have been disasterous but i discovered it while it was just funny/sad.

remember floyd the duck who intitially was afraid of water and then learned that he was a duck and fell in love with wet????

so i go into the chicken house to give them fresh food and water and there is floyd in an obvious pickle…he is stuck inside the water bucket. the sides are too high to spread out his wings  and the water is too shallow for him to float at all, and the bucket is too small to take a big jump, so there he is standing chest deep in cold water, waiting for someone to rescue him…(again)…he is freaking lucky that water didn’t freeze.

i put a smaller bucket in, one i hope even he can see is no good for a swim and i will check on that fruitcake duck when i go out to put the barn guys in.

ellie could be “Dasher” the rein-pig…. she sure liked the…… dashing thru the snow, with a herd of crippled dogs, o’er the field she goes but not onto the pond……sigh, she is so beautiful.

lahanie is good, joey is good, paluche is good, and even bridgette today is good…but…4lane has the poops and is pooping everywhere he goes today…that sort of sucks and now i am slightly paranoid about later finding a frozen ice cube bucket duck…bad floyd to worry me on xmas eve.
