Falling Short - We All Do It


I was not the only one who fell short of the mark this weekend...
This marble size egg was the first attempt from one of my hens this weekend. I so can relate!!!
I had such high hopes for all the things I was to get done but fell way short of everything. The winds made it impossible to even stand up let alone get all those outside lists done. Then the sound of the wind in the barns were brain rattling - which does not take much these days. Even with ear buds in my ears and the sound turned up all the way I could not even hear what was being said - It was on "Being Here Now" - you got to be kidding - the only "NOW" I am experiencing is - complete meltdown!! I fell really short of being in the NOW....
So inside I went and thought I would get paperwork done - YUCK!!! Besides the wind howled so loud that it rattled the windows and dumped things off the decks so forget that!!!
Then I thought I would get more products listed - I spent hours trying to get the new camera to take correct pictures of these incredible glass buttons that I decided I might share with my customers. Then I could not get the latest hand painted silk roving that I had just finished to even look anything like it does in person. Then I could not get the program to read the camera information - Crap!!!
Last, I thought now I guess I will finish painting the upstairs hallway but Wynonna just would have none of that - she was a pill (that was not the word I was using at the time) and screaming her lungs out. I could not have her with me because she was still having potty issues and she kept touching the wet paint. Between that and the wind I was ready to just pull my hair our - what is left of it...
So last but not least I was going to start the naming contest here on the blog but I admit instead I sat my tired bum on the coach and proceeded to fall asleep sitting up again... I regret falling short this weekend and I hope you will play along in the next posting for the first NAMING CONTEST!!!
I hope I was not the only one who fell short - please share your shortness with me so I can believe that I am not the only one alone with my hen who just did not have the best weekend. Here is to a better week!

Well we just poured concrete and decided to frame in a pad to park our camper on. Our driveway is a real mud pit. We start to pour the pad, and low and behold we didn't have enough concrete. We only needed one more yard and they have a 4 yard minimum delivery. So you could say we fell really short. Now the pad is not big enough to park anything on. It must be going around this weekend.

Oh Jane I swear it is going around here more then I would like. Is there going to be a way to add to your pad?? Maybe it could be the base for a great chicken coop!

I keep reminding myself that in the light of all that has happened in the world my little problems are just that so I keep saying to myself - "Grace stop whinning"
