I am back and you didn't even know I was gone. Yesterday right after lunch the phone and computer lines were out. Seems the road crew mowing along the road drove slap over the phonebox and cut the line for the whole neighborhood. It was fixed around 8:30 last night but then my computer went crazy. cd drawer kept open and closing over and over. I kept getting AOL when I don't even have AOL on my computer. Then half of my keyboard stopped working. Of course that was the half that I needed to type in my password for email and for blogging. Ran a virus scan and fixed everything but the keyboard. Had to go out this morning for a new one. Couldn't mail my soap orders as I couldn't get the addresses off the computer. That plus a head cold has me very grouchy. Hopefully today is a better day.

Went out to give fresh water a few minutes ago. Guess Juliet's feet got hot following her boyfriend around. She was standing in her water cooling her feet
Killer was pitching a fit so I went to see what was wrong. Seems like Snow White decided to take over sitting on Killers eggs and Killer wasn't happy.I had to get Snow White off the nest which made her very very unhappy with me. She tried her best to bite my legs and was she ever mad when she couldn't

Meanwhile Killer was happy back on her eggs

Meanwhile John Henry the rooster got too close to Ethel, Fred the turkey's girlfriend which caused a big fight. Fred's chest feathers were just starting to come back from the last fight but at least this time Fred won. Don't think John Henry will be messing with Fred anymore.Dolly's babies are already running around. One was enjoying the sunshine with its mom.

If you want a good laugh or a good prank to pull on your hubby you need to pop over to Perri's and see what she was up to!

I know I posted a link to Notes from a Cottage Industry yesterday but she has a awesome ideal for your guestroom. A way to personalize for each person.

Kansas Milkmaid amazes me everytime I stop by. This lady does it all!

Rosa found a awesome magazine and it has some of our blog neighbors in it! Rosa is also redoing her kitchen. I am waiting to see how it goes and how long it takes before I finally break down and let Wayne start on mine. Thank goodness she is sharing each step so I can be prepared.

Hope everyone is having a blessed day!

I missed you. Thought you were off line because you were feeling badly. Hope you feel better now.

Your mysterious computer behaviour. . . .enough to make you believe in a "deus ex machina". Spooky!

Hi Peggy, I loved reading your story.Juliet is smart...that is the way to cool off when hot.... when your feet are cool , your body is cool. Why does Snow White want to sit on eggs that are not hers??? Poor thing..give her some plastic eggs.I hope you are staying cool and enjoying your porch. Baba

You are like a little referee for those guys. I think you need a whistle to call foul or would that be

Oh the goings on at the Homestead....I'd be grouchy too...although for some reason I cannot imagine you grumpy!
I hope you get some time to rest and get rid of that cold before it gets worse!
Sending you some hot tea with love and hugs,

That brought back to mind the phrase "madder than a wet hen" but she wasn't wet!! Love the name of all your animals.

Too bad about your keyboard. I hate it when the computer is messed up. What a pain!

Donna said...

Grouchy is just a phase! That's what I tell my husband anyway. I did notice you were missing yesterday but figured you had a good reason.

Sounds like the gremlins were really having a field day with your computer, etc. I wonder if they managed to pay your phone bill while they were there?
