WORKING WEEKEND

WORKING WEEKEND

Well this WORKING WEEKEND  has been due to a New Girl  that didn’t show up to work .   I was ready to get home Wednesday morning  and start my Weekend, but my relief failed to show up. I made the calls  and no one picked up .  This left me at  work dealing with the day Shift work.   Well the first day of my WORKING WEEKEND was only a half day. I got a bit over 4 hours of OverTime.   My relief, the new Girl , had still not call when I got relived, so I claimed the shift for Thursday.

When I got home it was Well Past  Noon.  I was hungry and went to my favorite Chines Food place, The TEXAS CHICKEN BOWL.   They have a $5 lunch special and a fix your own Stir Fry for $7.    I went for both.   I got the BEEF & Broccoli special and Chicken Stir Fry with an extra  bit of Fried Rice ,  for $13.50  .     Well  I ate about half of the  Stir Fry and all the Special  on the first setting.   Then I got to the tending of the critters, they were Upset with my being so late to tend to them.   By time I had every one feed and watered  and cleaned up it was 5:30 , and I went to sleep. Something woke me up for a minute around 6:45 , It was the phone and I shut it off and was back to sleep in two minutes.

I woke up a few minutes after midnight and  finished  off  the Stir Fry.  Then went back to sleep till 4:50 in the A of the M to get the Thursday part of my   WORKING WEEKEND ,  going .    I spent the first 30 minutes playing with the Puppies, they were very happy with this.  I’m not sure how well the neighbors liked it .    Their bedroom light came on while JACK was singing With me.    This was not a TOP HIT in anyones book, but the puppies and me where having a lot of fun.  Well after  The Singing, it was time to get to the day . I let the puppies out into the backyard and Went to take a shower. When I was done I went to let them back in the house to feed them.  JACK WAS GONE.

Jack had went on a bit of a WALK ABOUT.   He had climbed over the fence using the stack of Pallets   I   have.  Well I started calling for him but he was gone.  I garbed a cup of Coffee and the stuff i carry to work every day and headed to the truck to go look for him.  This was a few minutes before 6AM, I was still at it at 7AM when I gave up and headed to work. I was 10 minutes late,due to Jack.

I was worried about him, being out , and this ate at me all morning. Around noon my Neighbor called me to say JACK  was out and on the front Porch  , and had been there for a while.   Well this was a relief for Sure.    When  I   got Off at 3:30 ,  I went straight to the house, to find Jack Still on the porch.   He was  All  happy to see me. I was MAD at him , but was very Happy to  see him TOO.   Well I got him in the house and tended to the critters while Jack DOWNED  the food in his bowl. He had missed breakfast too.

After all of the critters were feed,  I gave in to my HUNGER PAINS .  I went looking for food for ME.   The thing is that I had not got to the store.  Well  this needed to be fixed Right Now.   So off to the store i went.  I needed Bread and  the fixings for some HOT DOGS.   I didn’t spend but $12 there.   When I got home I got to cooking some Hamburgers.  Just TWO of them.  They were  double decker jobs with cheese, lettuces and tomato.   I should of took off my work shirt I got drippings all down the front of it.   Well I was full .

Well I got to the keeping the BACKYARD HOMESTEADING ACT , part of my normal  Weekend. Things like getting the trash out and a load of laundry going.  it was while doing this that I found the Quail eggs in the Incubator had started to hatch out and I needed to setup a brooder box. Well this was a good thing, I need a few more chicks to sell to cover the feed bill.

Well now as it is Friday morning about 7am .   I’m getting to the end of my WORKING WEEKEND.   I plan to get all of the things done with tending to the critters and then move a bunch of pallets so that JACK can not climb on them to get over the fence again.    I need to get this done by NOON .  I have to go to work tonight for my normal work week.   Well this is it for this WORKING WEEKEND post and I’ll get back soon.

IT’S MONDAY AGAIN

IT’S MONDAY AGAIN

Well IT’S MONDAY AGAIN, and  I  have to deal with a BAD PUPPY today.    I  stepped out my back door, to see that JACK was dragging one of my Chicken  Hens out from under the frame / stand of my Aqua-phonics system . Well this pissed me off real bad.  The chicken is OK , but a bit rattled .  This has led to some real intense training for  JACK today.  Well I can only do so much with JACK and training, so today I gave up doing some other things , to deal with JACK.   So  IT’S MONDAY AGAIN and I’ve  got to  play with my puppy instead of getting some sleep, that I really need.   I love my puppy.

Well I did get to spend some time looking for the information that I need to take the test to get a HAM RADIO license.   I found them  and downloaded all of the Questions .    So I  can study them over the next few months, There are 1000 of them, so it may take a day or twenty to get them all learned. Well I hope to get this done soon so I can get on to the AIR WAVES, to talk with friends.  Well  I did find a few other things , one of which was a foot powered washing machine,            PEDDLE POWERED WASHING MACHINE    , then I found this KickStarter for this one,    DRUMI .  I like the first one more .  I hope that they get it going soon.  I would like to have one.

SO    IT’S MONDAY AGAIN  and it is about over now but , IT’S MONDAY AGAIN still and I need to get to work and earn the Dollars that keep the BACKYARD HOMESTEADING ACT going now.

A STORM’S BREWING

A STORM’S BREWING

Well there is  A STORM’S BREWING here at the BACKYARD HOMESTEADING ACT.  the forecast is calling for a blizzard and 12 to 16 inches of snow over the next 36 hours or so.  This is why I went out this morning and got the things that I needed for the rest of the week , and will only be driving back and forth to work .   Well I think that  A STORM’S BREWING for a lot of the areas around here and going across to the east coast.     I got my car stocked up with a few things that will help  Just In  CASE, kind of stuff.

A STORM’S BREWING   and I hope that I can get home tomorrow morning , I need to tend to all of the critters  and I don’t want to have the PUPPIES doing their thing in the house.   So  this  is going to be a lot of fun getting home and back to work  again tomorrow night.    I’ll be going real slow on my ride back and forth for the next few days.   I don’t know I might just get a room here and bring the puppies with me to work , and just come back to the job after tending to the critters in the morning.    I might need to talk to my boss about  this. We shall see.

SHORT POST TODAY

SHORT POST TODAY

This is going to be a     SHORT POST TODAY.   I’m doing this  SHORT POST TODAY here at work. This is why It is going to be short.   Well not much to say today.  I did the  tending of the critters and not much else.   This was a good thing in that I was needing rest. I did get a solid 6 hours and  then a solid 4 after that too.    While I was sleeping  I had forgot  to put up the fence , and JACK got to the EGGS in the CHICKEN COOP.  So now I have another project for my TO DO LIST.. I NEED TO BUILD A GATE FOR THE ELECTRIC  FENCE. One that closes on it’s own, so if I   forget to close the fence it dose it for me.

Well this  SHORT POST TODAY  is done for the day  and I’ll get back tomorrow with more.

JACK STRIKES AGAIN

JACK STRIKES AGAIN
Well My puppy JACK STRIKES AGAIN . Well this is an ongoing thing with JACK, I hope that he will grow out of this puppy stage.     My mom asked me why do you keep him?   My answer was Would you of got rid of me??? I love my PUPPY’S ,   even when they do things that piss me off.  This chewing thing is wearing thin though.  The last number that i came up with fore the damage caused by JACK Is now around $1500.00 over the last 16 months .  I can’t afford this, this is  money that could of paid for my shed for my quail.

Well  this    WEEKENDS  PROJECTS  Is to   FIX WATER hoses and the  soak-ers   too  , all because JACK STRIKES AGAIN .  Now this was a real BAD  one as far as i’m concerned.   I was out this morning watering the garden and the chickens,  while I was doing this JACK laid down next to the hose near the spool and chewed into my new hose while i was using it to water.     I  WAS USING IT , AND HE DID THIS.   The water pressure just drooped and i turned to see if i had kinked the hose,  AND   JACK STRIKES AGAIN!!!!!      Well JACK is in the crate and been there a good while today.   I’ve been avoiding him as much as i can , I’m PISSED OFF.

The good thing about  JACK STRIKES AGAIN , is that when I get mad I clean house.    Today has seen a lot of things get cleaned out and this is a good thing ,  I even got the old PRINTERS tossed into the trash. so this made some space .  Well I need to get to things .  There are quail chicks  hatching to tend to. There is also an Incubator to build, as well as the hoses to fix and a lawn to mow.  Well the lawn is tomorrow as well as the hoses I’ll need to get some parts to fix it,tonight.   Well  this is the end of the JACK STRIKES AGAIN post .
