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.
so later blessings byebye
