my week

Our chicken coop has two parts, one is a nice little cozy shed with their laying boxes and roosting shelf and heat lamp, and the part where they can go out their little door and frolic in the fenced off outdoor portion. We free them completely on nice days so they can wander about and do whatever chickens like to do. Anywhoo, one day this week when the chickens were wandering about freely, our smarty pants Mel snuck in through the open door of the outside portion, and crawled in through their tiny door to the shed part, and took the eggs! She likes to break them open and eat the inside. While this was a pretty impressive feat, we couldn't be completely surprised, because the dog also decided last summer that she likes corn, and would hold it down with her paw, and husk it with her mouth, and then munch on corn cob after corn cob. She will even eat raspberries right off the plant. Sometimes when she sneaks food I can't even be mad because it is so impressively sneaky.

In other news, you should be pleased to know that I refrained from accosting someone in the dreaded parking lot of wal-mart. My patience for people was low at the end of a long day at work, and as I am walking in, I see this man ram his shopping cart up onto the curb so that he wouldn't have to put it away. This would be lazy act in and of itself, but the cart collector was RIGHT BEHIND HIM!! So before he could shut himself in his car, I said "REALLY!?" , and I proceeded to make a big scene of somewhat violently dragging his cart off the curb and putting it back in it's rightful place. I don't know why I just shared that with you. Maybe I just feel somewhat proud of righting small social injustices and scaring the crap out of complete strangers...?

  1. Kayla, I am so thankful I am not the only person who detests when people do this. The other day, I was at the grocery store and watched a woman do the same thing. I was furious. So, I pushed two carts, the lazy woman's who left hers, and mine (with a hefty toddler) to the front of the store. The entire time, I lectured Kaden, my 19 month old, about why I was doing this. (My lecture was in a very loud voice, in hopes that this woman would hear.) "When you grow up, I want you to be a responsible citizen. That is why Mommy is returning that lazy woman's cart."

    If I still lived in Moses Lake, I think we would be friends.

    I think your blog is charming and genuine. Keep writing, please.
