Fat Tuesday!

Here in the US IHOP is serving up FREE PANCAKES!

Tonight I will make a favorite from Bourbon Street

Jambalaya, I will pass on the King Cake as I am already

lucky indeed


Sunday was my best friends birthday who I heard each year

growing up say “I’m 3 days older than you!Β  Well I would remind her

when she turned 50 I would still be 49
Just keeping it real even back then.

Next week the skin cancer on my face will be removed and then I have to take my marriage certificate to the government agency in order to prove I am entitled to my ex-husband SS check.Β  I was told he passed away after Christmas.Β  So many things I could say but it is best toΒ just pray he now rests in peace as now I finally can.

Not sure I will be any better off financially, Β as I do not know what he has been doing for work if anything, since last seeing him in 1997.Β  Even $10.00 more each month will cover one month electricity each year.

I have been thinking I want to build a Coyote/Hawk proof chicken coop, on skis or wheels, so they can safely free range the property eating all the bugs from one spot to the next.Β  Eggs are a big part of my diet.Β  You see protein helps to keep you full and satisfied longer than empty carbs say like a bag of chips πŸ™‚Β  I have a friend who is a Body Builder and has been a inspiration to get back into shape pain or no pain and she devourers a dozen a day!Β  I could also sell them for $3.50 a dozen for Organic Eggs and still have plenty for me and cover the cost of anything I would feed them over what they find in the yard.Β 

Can you just picture me outside with my Watercolors watching the chickens peck the ground and clucking all day while that cute little Border Collie begs for yet another toss of her FRISBEE, Β yes friends life is good, well till I look outside and see RELAITY!Β  It isΒ below 0 temps F and snow up to my head or higher in some piles but seeing where some gradual melt has occurred under trees up on the sunny hill, where there is DIRT!

Always hopeful that is me in a NUTSHELL!

Stay safe everyone

    1. MY Blood C is 129 lol least of my particular worries πŸ™‚ others may have to shy away I am glad I don’t πŸ™‚

      1. πŸ™‚ I take no meds at 57 that’s not too bad πŸ™‚ I eat for my health now or it would be subs and chips and dips for me πŸ™‚

  1. Love your optimism and I just know you are right! The chicken feeding artist will prevail! πŸ™‚ And of course, no matter how dismal it is outside, Spring is on the way. πŸ™‚

    1. For sure with Male Cardinals singing their mating song each morning and Robins running amuck all along the rivers edge here I see their joy and can’t help but get excited right along with them πŸ™‚

      Raising chicks and collecting eggs is cheaper than running a rig maybe more fun I will have to see πŸ™‚

  2. You have a fantastic outlook to life, however hard it comes Eunice You are an inspiration to us all.
    Good luck with rearing chicks its great fun especially when they lay all those eggs for you. Remember I told you we have an aviary, well the budgerigars eggs have now hatched, so have two of the canaries O.K. we can’t eat them but John can rear and sell them. Little bit of pocket money eh.

    1. Thanks so much for following me and being a dear friend from far away. I loved raising the birds you did because they lived inside my home I will worry sick over wee ones outside but between the two of us and JT we should keep the beasts away πŸ™‚
      Wishing you many sales.
      I used to sell mine for $8 normal parakeets to $15 for the larger English style budgerigars πŸ™‚ that was back in 1988 and to a pet store. πŸ™‚ LOVE BIRDS πŸ™‚

    1. Sure is! Who knows what we will get when it arrives but I am ready for COLOR πŸ™‚

  3. So that must mean you’re a birthday girl today? Happy Birthday Eunice! You are such an optimist – a real inspiration. Thank you for all your positive energy – it does me good! Hugs! xx

    1. Thanks Cathy it is the 5th tomorrow πŸ™‚ I love your blog as well and you always inspire me to eat good food! :)Hugs coming across the Atlantic to you as well.

        I woke to light snow and with promises of warmer temperatures for Saturday so today I will spend with Ron and JT out by the shore for Seafood lunch and a lovely ride.
