My 23 hens and 1 rooster....

Image
Last May, we were given by my hubbies son 25 chickens. They were so tiny when they get here and one was sicked then. The next day the sick chick died and the rest are just doing fine with their new house.
At first, we bought their feeds at Tractor Supply. After a while hubby had a second thought and realizing about what kind of feeds we get from the stores. He noticed some stuff in the feeds that ignited the red flag of him. So he called his other son and talked about buying a good feed for the chicks and good stuff means it is made from the local farm. We got bags and bags of feeds delivered the next day.
After several days, days turns to weeks and weeks turns to months my chicken are already big. Then we noticed that out of 24 chicks 23 are hens and 1 is a rooster. Hmmmm sounds good for the rooster huh! The king sorrounded by all the queens. Here are some things that I noticed:
1. Even if they are chicken they also have a certain characteristics that stand among the many.

Last Sunday of September

Hmmm what significant events that happened this week....

~~~Last Monday was the beginning of Fall or Autumn. As I looked around leaves started to turn there pretty colors. I already see many leaves laying on the ground.

~~~Same thing hubby and I went to see my step-daughter and take care of her.

~~~Yesterday, we attended the installation mass of Fr. Gerry in our Parish. The mass started at 5pm after the mass we went for dinner at a new resto here in our place. After dinner we went to visit (2nd time for the day) my step-daughter and went home 10pm.

~~~Friday morning I chatted my neices and nephew over yahoo messenger and skype. My sister was their and so my eldest neice. As I looked at them in the webcam I could say that they are getting bigger and taller too. They are so energetic it seems that the day is not enough for them to play. I asked their performance in school and I asked them to face infront of the webcam and tell me whats going on in their school life. It begins with the youn…

My Fathers 19th year death Anniversary

Last monday, September 22 was my Fathers 19th year death anniversary.

I remember my father as a very cheerful man. I never see him frown nor heard him being grouchy. He always has his flashing smile na makikita mo ang kanyang gold tooth hehe. He is the one who teached me how to cook yup, not my mama. He is a good cook and so am I hehe.

One time, we went to Cebu and as far as I could remember it is just me and my papa. I really don't know what we do in Cebu but what I remember too well is that we went to this building they called it White Gold which at that time is so famous with there revolving chair or table. I was so amazed with the view but I was so happy and excited to go home when papa bought me a set of toys. Those set of toys consist of lechon2x, pots and pans, forks and spoons, plates and glass. I was so proud of it I thought I am the only one who got that kind of toys in our street hehe.

I remember him came to my PTA meeting I was surprised when I saw him at the back of the…

My first tomato canning

Image
This week is kind of busy I think it is because Fall season is coming and because since I lived here in the farm I had to finished somethings that farmers do char!

Anyhow, the usual everyday thing that me and hubby do is to visit his daughter since she is sick and bedridden and needing more assistance. Staying there takes a lot of time and so there are some days that I don't go in order for me to do the household chores.
Last, Friday we went to hubbies son in St. Charles to get some vegetables in his farm. We went home full of tomatoes and some veggies. We arrived home at around 11pm I was so sleepy already I felt grouchy. The next day my sister in law came to the house and teached me how to do tomato canning. I had a ball doing it. It was fun and also tiring hahaha. After making 19 1/2 jars I told my sister in law that we are going to do it the next day. I was really tired! But looking at my 19 cans of tomato made from my own hands I am so proud of it. Today or tomorrow I am going…

Niagara Falls, Canada getaway Part 2 (more walking)

The second day, hubby and I woke up around 9am. We fixed ourselves and had a continental breakfast at the breakfast area in the hotel. After our breakfast we started to walked towards the Skylon tower, we went inside the building and reserved for our dinner buffet. Since the dinner buffet will start at 5:30pm we went to Imax theatre bought the ticket for 11am show. The show was about the myths, legends and daredevils of Niagara Falls. After the show we exited to a door that leads to the different craft that people used to undergo their adventure in going down Niagara Falls.
After checking all those craft we went shopping at National Geographic store hubby bought me a Canadian jade which is very simple and cute love it! Then we proceeded to walked towards the falls , in Niagara Falls there are two falls, the one is big with a horseshoe form while the other is not with another little falls at the side. Anyway, in getting to the falls we …

Niagara Falls, Canada getaway Part 1

~~~~We started our trip not so early though. I planned to start early so we arrived Niagara before the check in time, but hubby has his own planned too. We went to the post office to mail letters for his brother who is in SA,Texas then we proceeded to the bank to get some cash. After that we proceeded to go to Port Huron where we have to passed the bridge going to Canada. When we passed the bridge and stop for immigration hubby handed our passports and my greencard and the immigration officer told us that we are set. We stopped again to exchange the money from US $ to Canadian $ then off we go. It was a long drive and thanks to our TomTom GPS 720 we arrived safely to our hotel. We checked in and since we reserve our room online it was fast and easy. We were in our room 3:00pm hubby asked me if I would like to lay down and rest for awhile but I opted to set my laptop and check the room hehe. So hubby had a good nap I think he was exhausted after almost 5 hours of driving.~~~~After hubb…

The Fruit of our Labor

Image
Few years ago, hubby and I started to plant 3 peaches and 2 pear trees. After a year that we planted the trees only three trees were left alive. This year this 3 trees blossomed plenty of flowers, I even don't know what was it at first since I have no idea which one is pear and which one is peache. I also didn't knew (my step daughter told me) that when we have this kind of trees it is better to plant 3 or more since every year they take turns to bear fruit. In our street words, naa gyud laki or baye, in order to bear fruit. And so, I was thankful that among the 6 trees that we planted three are peaches but sad since my pear trees died.
After, many months of waiting for the flowers to become a fruit TODAY I harvested five fruits from the peach tree. I tasted it immediately and it is unbelievably sweet. I think and I conclude that our soil here likes peach rather than pears since we have one pear tree here but it ain't good at all. I have vast of land here to plant fruit tre…

Wanna feed my pig? And the slam dunk of Gov. Sarah Palin speech

Image
Early this morning hubby and I went to visit Doreen and brought her the carrot juice. On the way going to her house we passed several garage sale signs. After staying in their house for awhile I asked hubby to stop by at some of the garage sale signs and looked around. I was so excited I found the pig that I am longing for hehe. It is a piggy bank actually and if you drop a quarter it makes a good sound and the dollar sign on the side of the piggy lights up makes it more exciting. When we get home my sister in law and her husband were waiting on us. While there I ask my sister in law WANNA FEED MY PIG? And indeed they did feed my pig!!! I was like a kid having this huge grin in my face ear to ear and so excited watching them feed my pig.
I missed the call of my friend Rhebs, when I arrived home I checked my cellphone and there it is her name, so I called back but I think she was somewhere and busy she wasn’t able to picked up the phone. Anyhow, I was cheering Gov. Sarah Palin speech, …

A funeral...

I, hubby and my sister in law Maxine went to attend Larrys funeral my hubbies cousins. The funeral service was in Rochester but he was buried in Macomb, Township. It was a long drive from the funeral home to the cemetery and the day is sunny and humid. The good thing is that we don't have to go to where he is buried instead we had to go to this little chapel in the cemetery and pay our last look for the dead person. After a short talk from the pastor, everybody went to the church function hall just across the cemetery for a dinner. There, I've meet more relatives that came from the other side of Michigan and some from other states. I already lose track of all my hubbies relatives name, hubbies family is quite big compare to mine.
Anyway, everytime I came to attend a funeral I can't help but compare it to how it is done in Pinas. Just can't help it because there is quite a huge difference between the two. In Pinas it takes days or even weeks that we buried our dead but…

SOS...an update..

~~~~~ It’s been awhile after my last entry take place I was just too bothered about what happened in Mindanao, my mind couldn’t think right specially on what I am going to write here.
But my family were fine and doing well after that terrorizing Monday. Although my family live across the town that was being attacked but as what my sister and niece told me that they could hear the gun shots and saw the smokes from the burned houses and they also witnessed how the evacuees were so traumatized on that day. I talked to my brother and he says that it is still red alert and so everybody has to be cautious. I watched the news over ABS-CBN specially the regional news and found out that 31 Moro rebels surrendered and just by what happened before, this “soldiers” were persuaded by the rebel leaders and being told that they will be given 40,000 pesos for a salary but as what the surrender rebel says since 2003 that he joined the group, he never saw even a single cent that the leader had promised …

I have been blogging for 3 years now in bravenet.com but for some reason I can't logged in. I've been waiting for almost a week now that they could fix it but to no avail. What amazes me is that in my DH computer I can logged in to my account but here in my laptop I couldn't!! So I decided to transfer my blog site here and will see if I like it here somehow I am so used to bravenet that right now I do feel I am back to zero specially in putting some stuff here. But as I wonder around the page I found out that they have more stuff here than bravejournal hmmm. I have to make this page up and put all the events that transpired a week ago.
