Just an Update

Right now, as the political season goes into high gear, I am so discouraged.
No real new ideas or messages from those running for office...on either side.
Whoever wins, it will be the same.
"Meet the new boss, same as the old boss."
I'm not going to tell you who to vote for or even TO vote.
Just....follow the money.
See who is donating the most to candidates and discover their motives and agendas.
Because no matter what political parties say, people and organizations that give money to candidates always, but ALWAYS expect something in return.

I am feeling somewhat overwhelmed at the moment.
I feel like I have so much to do, but never enough time to get it all accomplished.
Food storage, sewing, the livestock....ARRGGGHHH!
It just seems to pile up and before you know it, there's a mountain of stuff to get done!
Some days I just want to hide somewhere until it goes away....but the problem is, it never goes away!
We need Prepper Fairies!

I am still incubating the peafowl eggs. My secret to incubating them this time?
I am using Ugly Betty!
She had gone broody on an egg she laid the day Pender died. I am hoping her egg is a rooster egg, I would LOVE to have a Pender, Jr.!
Anyway, I tucked the peafowl eggs under her and she is determined to hatch them all, bless her. I set her up a nesting box on the front porch and she seems quite content there.
Nugget, one of our orphan chicks, lives on the front porch, but she and Betty basically ignore each other.
Nugget likes to come inside and visit on occasion, which amuses me but annoys the dogs,lol!

OH! On to Baby, our preggo pup.
She is miserable. It has been pretty hot the past week and Baby spends as much time as possible indoors, especially on my bed with the fan blowing directly on her.
Poor little thing! She has a hard time jumping on the bed now, so I have to pick her up and put her on the bed. Once there, she rearranges the pillows and comforter so she can comfortably lie on her back.
I am hoping she will make it through her pregnancy and whelping safely. Once she delivers, we will have her spayed as soon as possible!

That's all from here right now. I have some worries and stress pressing down on me, but I'll keep that to myself for now.
I hope everyone out there is still prepping away...I don't anticipate things getting better with the election coming up....probably worse...possibly much worse.

Because of a couple of rude people that left comments that included links to porn pages and such, I have been forced to start moderating comments again.
