It's Christmas time! And my Christmas Cactus is in full bloom!! This is probably my last post til after Christmas. My pigeons got attacked by a small hawk the other morning, but he got none. He landed in the same pine tree as that owl. Mike shot at him with the .22 and he flew off. He has not returned after a week now. Something attacked my white silkie hen. Mike went out the other morning and her right wing was covered in blood. We moved her and her rooster into a better, drier coop, put some salve on her wing and put a next box in for her. She immediately started scratching and pecking as I threw her some feed. I later found out that a man's dog had gotten back there and attacked her. He came by to apologize and offer payment for her. We turned down the payment, but agreed to exchange fresh eggs in the spring for fresh bacon. She seems to be doing okay. Fingers crossed. I went holiday shopping with my mom this past Saturday. What a nightmare that turned out to be. It wasn't too bad, except my mom likes to shop for herself. She could spend hours in a store picking out all the things she wants only to put most of it back as she checks out. She did this on Saturday, as well. So neither of us finished out shopping. She was going to return on Sunday with my dad, but with his leg as bad as it is, I'm not sure how that turned out. I still have three nephews to buy for. I will probably stop to buy those tonight on my way home. I tried to get a pic of my new niece. She was born on Thursday, December 17, 2009. She was 7 pounds 1 ounce and 21 inches long. Her name is Jolissa Dawn. I haven't seen her yet, except a cell phone pic my brother sent to me. It's his third child, but only daughter. I will get pics at Christmas and post them!
Well, you all have a wonderful Christmas! Be blessed and I will see y'all after the holiday!!
