Chickenbitchin

If you have chickens,
then you know how these gals can sometimes have quite an attitude.


Every afternoon I pick up eggs from the henhouse.


And every afternoon one of the red hens gives me a piece of her mind.
It's always the red ones.
The Lucilles.


Never missing an opportunity to peck the heck out of me...
they lay there in the nesting boxes just waiting.
I swear if I didn't wear glasses...
one of these gals would have pecked an eye out by now!

I suppose I can't blame them.
After all, I am always plucking out their potential children.
And God knows, if someone did that to me I'd pluck out their eye as well!

I had mentioned last week that my fireplace mantle was a work in progress.
In keeping with the theme of the tree...


I had ordered buffalo plaid bows from Target.
One shipped....one did not... bad luck.

So, there is one bow...


This past weekend when our out-of-town guests arrived,
they had a gift for me...


several of these adorable buffalo check jackets to hang on the tree.
The amazing thing is that they had no idea what my theme was...
they just thought the ornaments looked like something I would like!
I love them!!!

"Buffalo plaid" -- that's a new term to me! I've only ever heard it called "lumberjack plaid" here in Canada.

I can tell you I still have scars from collecting eggs when I was a kid. Somehow that seemed to end up being my job. Love the little plaid shirts. I always love plaid at Christmas. xo Diana
