Bloggers United Federation and a Giveaway

Sonya Anne at  A Mom, Money and More is having a giveaway with lots of ways to enter. You can get a $25 Amazon Gift Code. Yes, that is $25! Go over there and enter multiple times with the opportunities she has posted.

She has gone off to Vegas, so let's surprise her with a gazillion entries.

I collected two eggs today.

During my nap, I had  scary dream that I forgot.

When I went to the free lunch, I brought home a plate of leftovers for the hens--chicken breast, salad with tomatoes, two sliced of bell pepper, bread crusts, baked beans. They were happy hens!

Today was a hard day but fruitful. My friend came to help clean up kitchen floor from stuff. She was able to stand in a chair and replace two burned bulbs in the ceiling fan. It is so bright in there now. Then, I went to the lunch. In order to tutor, I had to take a nap.

The starter and fluorescent bulb in the laundry room quit about a month ago. I bought the starter and bulb. However, exbf does not know how to change them. I do, but could not work over my head and twist to do the job. So, my friend changed those and there is light in the laundry room. NOW, I need to take two lamps to be rewired. It has been less than enough light enough in my house. Before now, I could change all bulbs and chargers by myself!

The boy tutee likes me now. Before, he did not dislike me, he was just sort of annoyed. His whole attitude changed once he understood two step problems. Ex: 2y-1=5
He said he could not understand the way it was taught at school or the way anyone else has taught him.

Then, we had a go at poetry explication. English is my field, so that made me feel all melty inside.

Yesterday, I hung out three  night gowns I washed yesterday because I was too tired to do more. Then, today I hung out towels and washcloths. Since rain is expected, I hung the towels long ways onto the line. The towels dry faster that way in a pinch. The rest of the wet clothes may go into the dryer. I forgot--yesterday, I hung out a whole line of panties I had washed. The rest of the towels and dishcloths and such will go into the dryer since there will be rain tomorrow. .

The starter and fluorescent bulb in the laundry room quit about a month ago. I bought the starter and bulb. However, exbf does not know how to change them. I do, but could not work over my head and twist my body to look up do the job. So, my friend changed those while she was here, and there is light in the laundry room. NOW, I need to take two lamps to be rewired. There has been less than enough light enough in my house. Before now, I could change all bulbs and chargers by myself!

The crockpot and too many pounds of chicken breast are awaiting me. At least I will be able to see what I am doing. When I freeze these, there will be enough frozen, cooked chicken to last for a month even if I eat a breast each day.

Your turn

  1. It's interesting that you feed your chickens, chicken. You don't have to explain yourself, of course, but I was just wondering why.

  2. tana50,
    Chickens will eat each other, their own chicks, mice, slugs. and protein source unfortunate to come within their reach.

    The chicken they eat are scraps of what it eat--skin, cartilage, pieces of meat stuck to bone.

    Some people think I am making cannibals of my chickens. However, chickens do not have the same moral center we do.

    I don't mind answering any questions or concerns that are not rude or accusatory. Thanks for expressing your thoughts.
