just popping in............

well i'm just popping in to let you know I may be off for awhile longer then planned...............this afternoon I was going to sort out the posts I wanted to do it and get organised and I have been chasing Mr Chooky and his vehicle problems...........lets just say the afternoon went pear shaped.............bit like the last week or so................I wasn't in my working clothes by any means (a dress) and ended up doing some farm work......had my  Cardygirl work boots thongs on......when I should have been cooking dinner I was drenching sheep with the boys (I have an extra boy for a week) while Mr Chooky took a couple of cows to the saleyards..........lucky for him he brought home some dinner..........then it was back out again to pick up a broken down vehicle and finally in at 8.45pm...........so far removed from the plans I had it's not funny............
I did find out about a little blog win so while in the heat dust and sweat of today that made me continue on........
I had great sewing plans for my holidays off work..................I have not got to sew a stitch yet.......a few visitors here and there......the farm jobs have been busy - catching up on work.............I am sick of sheep and we have more work to do with them...........lucky I will miss some of the cattle work on the weekend while I am busy with Fairy Girl.....then it is back to paid work so I am not sure when i will get back here..........I am very sorry as I have so much to show and be thankful for but for now it will just have to wait.............I also have posts to comment on which I am trying to do.............and I am trying now to keep up with the emails..........there were 150+ emails in my in box....google reader is out of control.............anyway I know we all have busy times and it will pass.............sorry Cardy I will try and catch you tomorrow night..........oh and the summer heat is here..............gee we have had it nice but not now................anyway off for now hope to return soon............while all the work is on we are having "quality family time" bonding like you do over stock work..............
.........take care til next time.....Chookyblue.........

  3. Sounds like you are finding it hard to catch your breath. I'm sure you will find a moment to stop and smell the flowers. Until then take care and don't overdo it.

  9. Hey Donna! Doesn't it just suck when 'real life' gets in the way of our stitching plans?!?! Hope the dust starts to settle soon and that you at least get a little bit of stitching time before you have to go back to paid-work. Hope you manage to avoid any further 'pears'! :0) Bear Hugs! KRIS

  15. Breathe Chooky, take the break you need. Ignore the emails- we'll all be here when you get back.

  16. Sometimes Chooky you just have to go with the flow and thats what you are doing. Life throws up all sorts of things we need to deal with and can get very busy. You just need to do what you have to do and everyone understands that. Make the most of that quality family time though, it becomes such a rare event.

  18. I really feel for you. My experience is similar, without the farm & broken vehicle lol.I had great visions of having my sewing room sorted, so that i could get back in there, but that hasn't happened yet. Oh well, the best laid plans of mice & men ...........

  19. Hope it calms down for you soon. Frustrating when you have lots of plans and you get whisked off and have no control over the direction!! We'll all still be here when you have time - and for your sanity, hope it's soon.

    Cheers

  27. Love your cactus pictures. We have cactus in Texas and I love them when they are in bloom. Have you ever eaten the fruit? After the little stickers are removed they can be eaten or used for jelly. I always think they taste a little like strawberries.
