new years 2013



The last two weeks have been one thing after another...

losing our first baby chick to hatch ( she lived one week, very sweet little one...she closed her eyes and cuddled into my hands and passed away, her name was Star )

2 more hatched, a few days apart just long enough that we can't keep them together....
both doing really good, very pretty strong happy little ones....
because they are fighting and already doing the "rooster dance" I think we may have 2 more roosters...

I had been keeping them in a large old cooler we had laying around with a cardboard divider....didn't see the going through setting up a big brooder area as being needed yet....
okay I'll admit it when hubby said he was going to take a bunch of old stuff and make an "chicken hatcher" I didn't think we end up with any chicks on the first try.....
now that the older of the two Just Gorgeous is hopping out....into the bigger area they go, with one in the cooler...they like talking to each other...
Brent thinks the younger of the two, So Beautiful may be a hen....I think he is just wishing, but hey wishes do sometimes come true :)

Strange how things work out...yesterday we had to put down two of our roosters....while we knew we couldn't let them near our other chickens ( they would try and kill any other chicken even a hen ), they had been more than fine together....slept next to each other, didn't fight at all...had their own coop.....
well they went after each other....it got ugly pretty fast....these birds weren't raised by us, so stopping them wasn't easy...
there wasn't anything else we could do by that time :(.....after seeing this...How the FRIG can anyone fight these birds ( or any animal ) sick...just sick :(

The last day of 2012 in the middle of the afternoon in the span of a few minutes, while we were in the coops...our back window and a dog dish in their kennel was broken...
we heard nothing...the dogs were in...the dish couldn't have been reached from the outside of the kennel and wasn't broke when we let the dogs in just before this.
The only way to get in the kennel would be passing one of us or through the house... but some how it was smashed like someone had hit it hard on the corner of the bottom step...the window can't be seen from anywhere but our back yarn...those pieces where just laying there like they were carefully set down....Brent took care of both so I didn't get any photos, just a odd story...

The guys weren't home at this time,they were house sitting....we went over there to have dinner with them... okay none of us have used an electric stove before so it was a quick style meal...instant everything expect the turkey I had precooked lol

While at the sink I started to tell the guys my odd story for the day.... when Jorden told me how he had one of his own....
a cup had broke strangely in the sink, while he was rinsing another dish as if it had been moved....
We laughed about it and started to come up with reasons for everything that had happened.....
that's when another dish popped out of the dish rack... made a popping noise
Jorden was right there and reached for it....it avoided his hand in mid air, going sideways instead of down........then it went down hard with a loud bang...

at this point we're a bit ticked off... dang our stuff is one thing....to have things broke at someone's else's place... not cool.....
What do you do at someone else's place...can't out and out cleanse...we never thought to even ask...

We made dinner laughed it off and Brent and I went home to put the chickens in.....we both got a odd feeling driving away like someone watching us...

A few hours later we get a call from the guys....they are hearing knocking and sounds like someone bouncing a ball inside the house.....dogs were outside and did not want to come in.....
now I had told them if anything seemed odd I wanted to know, it's been awhile since we did any looking for spirits and wanted to see for myself...the more witnesses the better I say :)
just as we are pulling in the drive way I get another call....are you knocking on the front door?...at this point I can see the door but the van wasn't stopped yet......I did hear something moving as I got closer...right in front of me at the door...

I stayed the night with the guys... Brent didn't care what any spirit was doing outside of our pets at home lol

We turned everything off, out of habit, just kept a light on so I could knit. With everything dark and quiet Jorden could see the road, he saw a car go by slowly, turn and come back twice....
I was talking with Brent..... we turn an outside light on and off again....the car drove away, didn't come back...no clue what kind of car it was, all we could see was the head and tail lights....but really happy the guys had turned off the electronics.....we did not need anyone trying to break in.....

Jorden made eggs sometime after mid night, we were sitting there talking about how a different stove and pan can really mess up change your cooking, when we hear this loud scrape followed by a very loud bang then what sounded like a dozen things falling hard to the floor...not all at the same time...took a few seconds.....

oh frig another item was trashed.....
first thing we did was check where all the animals were...none near the area...all asleep....at this point we started to blow it off...that's when the fork jumped up and fell....

talk about upset....oh we were out and out pissed off then...
how dare anyone break things in a friends house on our watch and kind of brag about it, at the very least wanting credit for it....

when we get upset we tend to get loud...I can not tell you everything I said ;) I can say things got very quite after that....the only things that happened after that were due to pets.....

Things were going along smooth enough until Friday....we ran out of propane a night sooner than planned on, but Jorden caught on to it before going it out fully, so we were able to keep the water heater warm enough to not freeze through the night...good thing...

had new rice cooker to make dinner with.... steamed veggies on top, meat dish on bottom :) so okay there....
but with the cold came all the neighbors starting up their fireplaces or wood stoves...I ran out of allergy meds....
we also ran out of scratch for the chickens...
but then it happened I ran out of Mt. Dew could this day get worse...
sure no problem...
even though Brent had all this crap to do before coming home, he saw a charge to our account we didn't make....

someone hacked my debit card...no clue how yet...
it hasn't been out of my sight, I don't even use it much...
haven't used it online in ages not since getting the chicks a few months ago, except I do use it to pay my phone bill, on my phone and our dial-up on the pc or lap top.....cable....okay now that I think of it, most of the bills that can be paid online lol
we go to the same stores over and over, I slide the card myself....

I've had this card number over 15 years...never an issue

Brent saw it while it was still pending, called the bank....
they were able to tell us that someone had tried to use it twice at a higher rate but were turned down ( a bright spot for being poor lol ), the third time was for $20. that was what Brent saw and stopped in time....

So happy Brent checks the bank as a morning habit...we had issues at every other bank we have ever used....after more than 15 years of no problems I'm glad he didn't give up lol

they shut off my card right away :D ....they could see that the "order" for something on Gamestop was not placed from here....

I'm so upset about this...I know we are out nothing but the time and hassle......the bank people were so nice to us...I know many more have lost so much more to things like this....
but to steal from people so you can get something from GAMESTOP REALLY

food okay I can see the need....games or what not from a gaming store....wow that is out and out sad....

to this I can say..... I do believe truly.... what comes around goes around......
oh I can add don't piss off a witch...



On the bright side I did get a lot of knitting done..... patterns to come :D
