Me Again!

on February 24, 2016

Hi!  I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted, but here I am again.  Part of it is me….I focus on something for a while and then I go on to something else.  The other part is life, it gets busy!  Plus hubby’s schedule plays a part in it since he’s gone for a few weeks, home for almost a few weeks; back and forth, back and forth!

Having a million and one things on our to-do list, I never know where to start.  And I always think about other things that need to be done when I can’t and forget about them when I can.  Please, someone tell me I am not the only one this happens to!!!!

Let me start by updating on you on a happy subject!  Geese!!!!  I can’t tell you how much I love our Buff American Geese!!! The love affair just continues to grow, leaps and bounds.  They adore Hubby & I, but still don’t like Bug very much.  And when I say ‘they’, I mean Clyde!  He loves us, Bonnie more ‘likes’ us.  Although, she did let both of us pet her when we returned from visiting the Magnolia state for a few days.  When we have things to do, we open there pen so they can come hang out with us.  And when the weather is nice, I walk them up to the closest tank (pond for the non-Texans).  Clyde has enjoyed getting in the water both times I’ve brought them up there and Bonnie joined him the second time.

Clyde tends to get right under foot while I’m trying to work.  And I have to take many breaks to give him some loving.  He is very jealous of the dogs as well as any tools I’m using. It is funny when he starts hissing at the shovel.  He would come inside the house if we let him.  Have been trying to talk Hubby into letting him sit on the couch and watch a movie with us.

And another happy note! Bonnie has started laying eggs!!!!  M found one while she was taking care of the animals while we were gone and brought it up to the house.  I cooked it yesterday morning before Hubby had to fly out.  On a side note, geese eggs have no cholesterol.  They are delicious and Hubby likes them more than chicken eggs.  She has since laid another, but I left it down there to see what comes from it.  I know very little about geese and how they do things.  Am thinking she will lay a few until she has enough to sit on.  I sure hope we have some goslings in our future!!!

To be honest, if has been almost two weeks since I started this post.  Guess you can say it’s a mix of ‘life happens’ and ‘out of sight, out of mind’.    But we are now up to six geese eggs laid.  And the geese are finally beginning to warm up to Bug.  He was so excited when he told me Clyde let him pet him and Bonnie ate grass out of his hands.

I know when I began this post I had a few things to share, but they escape me now.  I’m sorry, but I’m being real.  LOL
