Lighted Reindeer, what to do

Friday, November 30, 2012
When I bought this house that I am in, it had 4 of the white reindeer under a part of the house and I am working on getting them to work. The big thing is that the light sets that are on them are the old ones that can really hike up the electric bill. I am thinking of changing the lights on them to the LED lights and also doing them in color and not the white like everyone has. I am not a big fan of all white lights. The big thing is getting my husband to buy the lights for them. He is a great man and has bought just about all I have wanted for this holiday season, for it is the first one I have been this into it for sometime. I guess I better get to work on them so I know how many lights they need.
I think I am going to have another project for the weekend and that is redoing my egg nest. I have some young chickens that think that roosting on the edge and on top is OK and I can not break them of it. I am going to see about moving the nests out of the coop but them still able to get in them. I don't like all the pooh that is building up on them and it is nasty. I try to clean it but to no avail for they are just back the next night. I am going to have to do some thing so that the hubby will do some of the work so I can get them made.

Yule tree and updates

Thursday, November 29, 2012
I got my tree up and most of the decorations on it but I am thinking I am going to have to buy some new ones to give the sparkle I would like it to have. I did have to buy new lights and that was around $50 for we got LED and they are so nice looking. They are the C6 bulb and love them for they remind me of the old C9 that we had as a child. When I am all done with my tree I will post some pictures of it, but for me it is not ready at all.
Honey has most defiantly gone broody so she is in a cage in the enter-way on 10 eggs. I bring her in to brood so that she is not using up one of the nest and so the chicks do not fall out of the nest when they get here for the nest are 2 to 3 feet off the ground.
My son is due to be back home this next week so we are going to try and get started on the garden areas and the fence for the goats and other animals. I know that it coming up on wither time but that is about the only time we have to get ready for spring at this time. So far it has been really nice during the day so we can work outside.
Once he is back I hope to get started with making some good food to eat for Breakfast and lunch, stuff that we can just heat and eat., going to work on recipes later today and will try to post if I can. I would like to do better at feeding my family better meals more fruit and vegetables.l We can only wait and see what happens.

I decided that I was going to try and plant some vegetables inside, for I have 3 very large window on the south side of the house. For now I have a very large planter in a room that the cats can not into planted with spinach, green leaf lettuce and some tomato seed to see what will happen. As time goes on and I find way to grow stuff in the house with out the cats using them a litter boxes I will plant more for I have lots of pots around. The inside of my house does not get below 60 degrees for we keep the heater on at 65 degrees but some rooms get colder than that.
It will be great if this works and we can have salads all year long for that is something that we really need to start eating more of. Might just have to rearrange the house some to have a nice room to grow in, that the cats can not be in.

Sorry to the one's that do follow my blog, but there really is nothing going on around here to blog about. With summer over and fall here there is nothing to harvest(garden is gone((never got one in here)).With winter here I am working on crafts and playing more games on the computer. I am also watching more TV. The Holidays are here and I seem to really be in full swing of them this year. This is a first in many years and I an not really sure why. I am even listen to holiday music, and I have not like much of that at all over that last several years. I think some of it has to do with the Thyroid medication the doctor has me on and the fact that I have a wonderful house to decorate this year. I am just now getting to the decorating and am going to take my time at it.
For the most part you will not see Christmas in many of my post for I am Pagan and celebrate Yule, I will use Holiday most of the time since there are so many different one at this time of year. I did grow up celebrating Christmas for my dad was Catholic and my mother always said she was an atheist, I now believe that this was because being a pagan back then was not good. Since I did grow up with Christmas I still do a lot of the stuff I grew up. As a pagan not a lot is different for most all of the Christmas ideas were pagan in the first place. I have changed some of the decorations that I use, so that there is more of  Yule feeling here.
Thanksgiving was good and my sister and niece were here with no drama. well my niece did step and chicken pooh and that was a site to behold. You would think it was acid the way she took off her shoes and then walk around in socks in an area where there was more chicken pooh. I told here there has been more chicken pooh in this house than she would care to know of for we are always caring it in on our shoes. We do try hard to keep from bring it in but it still happens as anyone with farm animals knows.
Our house chicken in now back out int he coop for she was poohing all over the place and getting a diaper on her was not going to happen. I am thinking of getting rabbits soon to be in the house. I just need another cage so that I can have a buck and and a doe. Rabbit is going to be one of our meat sources.
