Speaking of the listing, I made a random list of funny stuff that has popped out at me over the last several days. It might not be that funny in reality. I am sure its just the cold/sinus meds talking, but you can judge for yourself. I have been sick for so long I have to take the joy where I can find it.
:: Silkie chickens' fuzzy little bottoms are the funniest thing to watch. If you don't have Silkie's, get thee some. 'Nuff said.
:: Strange things you don't want to hear out of your 8yr old girl-child "Hey Mom! LOOK! I built a b*mb."
:: The Pioneer Woman's Sour Cream Noodle Bake is fabulous, amazingly simple, infinitely adaptable and a sure crowd pleaser.
:: One of my Best Girlfriends told me that I reminded her of the Pioneer Woman. (P-dub, call me. I think we were separated at birth.)
:: Chickens are like crack to me. SERIOUSLY, people! I need a 12 Step Program for Chicken Lovers. I luff, love, lurve my multi colored flock of chicks and chickens. The puffy cheeks...The fluffy bottoms...All the different color/pattern combinations send me right into a tail spin. I can't resist. I must buy more chickies. The soft fluffy cuteness of chicks is too much for my farm-girl self to bear. Don't even get me started on the eggs. The multi-colored eggs make me so happy I could sing. Everyday is like Easter around here. Easter everyday, how great is that?!
:: Chicken Crack. Buwhahaha! Seriously I need help.
:: Wondering what to make of my soon to be 7yr old son sliding across the kitchen floor ala Tom Cruise in Risky Business (underwear, and air guitar included) singing "I'm on'a hiiiiiiwaaaaay ta helllllll!" followed with a fairy dance and the vocals "La-la-la-la-laaaah". Boggles the mind doesn't it?
:: When you have guests over the last thing you want to find in the Loo is poo in the pot with no paper. Sorry about that one. Blame the cold meds. But wasn't that some great alliteration?
:: Have you ever been "schooled" in what is "lame vs.cool" from your 15 yr old man-child? If not you are missing out! I learned things I never wanted to know about Mario Bros., Star Wars, and about being a Dweeb/Geek/Nerd in general. It made my brain hurt.
::We are studying Countries of the child's choosing for a Co-op project due this week. When I told the kids to get on it one morning, my youngest child informed me that he "doesn't wanna be a Japanese boy" any more, he wants to be a farmer boy. I told him that Japan was a country and farmers were people and that we are studying Countries. He replied with his hands on his hips, " Farmers are from the country". Alrighty then.
::I was singing in church this last Sunday and everyone around me kept turning to look. I didn't comprehend at the time why they might be looking at me. This perplexed me most of the afternoon. I checked my crazy hair when I got home. Checked my teeth. Did the sniff.... but couldn't sniff. Then I remembered that my ears are plugged. Yep, I was singing my heart out and couldn't hear a thing. I can only imagine the joyful noises I was making. I think though, I experienced true worship for the first time in my life. Thanks be to my mucus filled head.
