7am came waaaaay tooo early today as I struggled all night with a stopped up nose and didn't sleep much at all. I continued to smell smoke thick and strong in the cold air that blew in these old 33 year old windows in our house and one of those old windows is directly above my head as I lay in bed. The smoke smelled stronger last night than it did all day.
Hubbie had to meet #2 son at a car repair shop at 8:00 this morning to bring him home. Some lady hit Tif's new 4-runner in a parking lot and he had to have it repaired here as the lady who hit her was paying the $284 bill out of pocket and chose Hill's Body Shop for the repair.
#2 son and hubbie had planned a day of stump grinding at son's house but with the smoke thick and strong this morning son decided he couldn't work out in it all day as he has my sensitivity to smoke.
While g-daughter had breakfast I did the chores and then took a call for all the older hens I advertised last night. The man is coming Wednesday or Thursday to pick all of them up. I hate that I am getting rid of some of the younger hens but I didn't tag the hens last year so I have no way to separate them out. I have been trying to catch who is laying eggs right now but have successfully only identified 2 older layers. I am dedicated to keeping better track from now on. I have about 20 hens and some days am getting only 2 eggs so they gotta go !!!
After hubbie got home we headed over to the farmers market to see if they had any citrus fruit in yet.
This tractor trailer loaded with Christmas trees was a sure sign of the season .
Back home we had lunch then a fussy g-daughter and not feeling well hubbie took naps while I got three loads of weekly laundry done.
Bernie the 4-legged kid had a rabies shot appointment at the vet at 3:30 so that was another outing for g-daughter today .
She loved petting this huge 22 pound cat that is the mouser at the vet's office.
D-in-love arrived at the same time as we did back home. G-daughter was fast asleep so she and g-son stayed a while to wait for her to wake up. G-son ate the left overs from yesterday's lunch while he waited. It is so good to see him eating some different foods now and watching him really grow !!
After they left we did chores and we watched as this huge helicopter flew over our place heading to the fire.
A bright spot on this evening is this beautiful Super Moon that is closer to earth tonight than it has been since 1948 and won't be this close again until 2034.
Tonight for my thankful note I will second this sign.
God Bless and Good Night.
