Crash, caboom…done.

Erg, our computer has finally reached it’s end. It crashed yesterday, leaving us without computer access except for the library. So that is where I am now, but obviously shan’t stay long. Just letting you all know why I’ll be absent from the online world.
Cio for now ;)

Skunk and Goose: A tragic story of life and lost.

We have had a sad occurence, that I told about on Google+ and so I shall just share that bit here. First the older one, then the newer one on the subject.

May 27, 2012 – Limited
So. It’s the end times. For the animals at least. This is what I came up with this morning. You see, we have had a visitor. I have dubbed it Satan, thus the one of the End Times of the Animals.
For the past couple weeks this visitor has plundered our egg, and left an odor. Yes folks, ’twas a skunk. We didn’t used to have any problems with animals in our barns, because of our dog (s) and all the other animals, but for some reason this skunk made it in. Perhaps it was it’s plotted revenge. There has been a war between Dad and skunk for…let’s see 9 years now. It begun when the skunk sprayed our dogs, who promptly rubbed against Mum and Dad on their way to the hospital in February 2003 to deliver my little sister, Noah. That was also soon after we first moved here. Now, of course, it can’t be the same skunk, but over the past 9 years, we have had many dealings with skunks. And yet, they won’t subject themselves to be dealt with. Dad is determined this time though, more than ever.
It happened sometime during the night. Last night. I came out this morning as usual, and got the outside chickens fed, along with the inside ones, and was about to go into feed the one banti chicken and Goose. But I noticed how quiet it was. “Goose?” I said… no sound. I open the pen door, look around, already knowing something was wrong; really I was just looking for the dead body. I found it. Poor Goose was grossly dead. It really was nasty. And so sad too, because Goose was becoming tame, and followed me around. I let Sesame Street out (she’s the banti) and finished my chores, and found where the predator got in. After I finished, I told Mum, and then it was time for Sunday School, so we had to leave, but when we got home, we told Dad and he took care of it, and set the live-trap. He also found the skunk’s droppings, proving it was Mr. Skunk. Hopefully Mr. Skunk will be dead soon.
So you see, this the Animals End Times. And it makes sense too – the skunk is all black, except for that bit of white, which proves he originally came from heaven, like Satan. Pastor Mike was at least impressed by my allegory rationalism.

Yesterday 9:39 AM – Limited
Well, Mr. Skunk is dead. And stinking up the barn just horribly. I did my chores this morning, and as I went into the chicken pen (the outside part) I saw there was a hole dug under, so after I finished filling the water, I checked in the pen that Goose was in where Dad set the trap, and sure enough I found a sleeping skunk in the live-trap. He obviously came back for his prey, but found it gone, so went for the egg that was in the live-trap. I told Dad and he went out and shot it. Bye-bye Skunk.

And there it is. Sad, yes.

I also have another bit to post (not from Google+) on dresses, but I’ll do that soon.

A little bit here and a little bit there

I haven’t really updated this in an actually post – just give-aways and reviews. And I realise that I update my Google+ page a lot, but never this, and not all of you are on Google+ – though, I don’t mean to make it sound like you care to read what’s going on in my life. For it is not very interesting. But I blog because it makes me feel somewhat accomplished in the end. Or not. ;)

Well news: Zachy had her beautiful foal on Tuesday the 22nd, and he is so cute. His name is Ziggy, and he is actually quite social. Very nice :) Zachy is a wonderful mother, and loves attention as well – she’s a proud mommy!
Dad went to Duluth on Monday, and will be home today. He was supposed to come home yesterday, but the rain interfered. (<—that word SHOULD be spelled interfeered or interfeared, doesn't it seem? But noooooo it's not.)
Okay, I've come to my senses now and am quite certain this is a bore, and so I shan't go any further. I don't feel like it any way. Tut tut.
What if I never ended a

“The Dragons of Chiril” – A review for Blogging-For-Books

This was the second book of the Chiril books by Donita K. Paul that I’ve read, though I wish this one would’ve been first, because it explained things a bitter better than the one I started with. I assume this is the first in the series.
I did enjoy “The Dragons of Chiril” quite well. One thing that I noticed, or perhaps, wished for, is that the book would have been totally built upon the Lord. Though, I thought that this book was better founded around God’s truth than the other one I read, was. This one had a bit more involvement than the other did, but I do wish that God could have been the exact center.
It was a good, and exciting story-line, and I must say, my personal preference belonged to Bealomondore :) He and Wizard Fenworth, as well as Librettowit were possibly my very favourite characters of the book. Besides the wonderful dragons, of course :)
The ending was good, but I think a little more could have been done with it. Though, as I said, I did enjoy this book very much.

Art thou here?

I must say, I am quite pleased with my template change – N&S in the background, ohhhh yes. Mum and I started that movie again yesterday morning, and yes, Mr. Thornton is…well, beyond words ;)
We only got to watch some in the morning, because by noon, the day picked up. Noah’s show was on, then Dallas, David and baby Liam came out and Brenda soon came (she’s the gal who owns the horses.) with hay, and David went out to the barn to start working on the barn, which was their plan for the day. T’wasn’t my plan, but I ended up being out there the entire afternoon, as well, unloading tons of hay, pitching manure, pitching more crap, braiding twine for tying a gate together, and the like. It was raining for most the day, and so I got real wet while unloading the hay, but that was no biggie.
The barn does look nice now. And Adora and Promise will have stalls now! Yay! This should help with my “training” Dora.
Oh and we have more kittens, believe it or not. Of course there are Jessie’s three that she had about three days ago, and Ziena’s one which she had about three-four days ago, and then Zelda had her kittens yesterday night, and she had three as she always does :) We also have a gosling. A Canadian goose. It’s very cute :) A man from church found it in his yard without any parents, and so therefore brought it to us.
My shirt, yesterday, wore all sorts of things XD Some Liam spit-up, some horse, rabbit, and who knows what else manure, and goose germs ;) Poor shirt. Ah well, that’s what shirts are for. And I was wearing an old one :D
I think that shall be it for now. Seeing as it’s Sunday, and I should probably go outside soon :)
