Something To Talk About
I'll also admit I just got kinda fed up with a few things here that I have not mentioned.. Social media can be a great way to make friends and connect with people and it can also astound you with people's pettiness and hateful attitudes. After my post in October I had a couple people send me some fairly smarmy, sarcastic emails as if they knew anything about what was going on in my life. Then this other "acquaintance" was reading my blog posts and then running back to her Facebook page to post lengthy ramblings about how my post was totally stupid and wrong. Didn't have the backbone to disagree with me on my blog. And the subject matter and timing was so specific it was not coincidence or such. I'll admit that being in pain every day shortens your temper and patience quite a lot and that was part of the reason I just said "f**k it" for a while. Plus, I just did not seem to be contributing anything constructive with complaining about how bad I felt all the time. Long time readers who also disappeared seemed to back that up. Who wants to hang out with a crank all the time?
So, we have about 15 hens left and thankfully they all seem real healthy. The two little Silkies we adopted are doing great and are fitting in real well with the big girls.
This past year was very hard to say the least. A lot of bad emotions and hard times but I am leaving it all behind and looking forward to a much better year. I'm trying out some new stuff as far as making a living and art and I'll tell ya'll more about that soon. And, I will post some more about my health discoveries and how I've been feeling better.
You may have also noticed that I put up a link to the new 2016 calendar I made this year. I'm not sure why I make those things other than I like to use them and my Mom always gets a kick out of the one I give her! Anyways....here is one of the only sales pitches you'll ever see me post or allow on this blog: if you have enjoyed my blog for some time and have the money I would certainly appreciate any purchases. I don't allow ads here or ask for tips like a lot of bloggers do (which is fine) but I'll be honest, writing this blog over the years has taken a lot of time, especially with the photos, and it would be a help to me if you could purchase a calendar or two. They are very reasonably priced and very well made. Just like the kind you would buy in a book store. In fact, they are printed nicely on thick card stock and many of the photos would be suitable for framing later. For those that just can't afford it though, I completely understand.
I've heard a number of folks say last year was pretty crappy and I hope we all enjoy a better year in 2016!!
So what have ya'll been up too? Any big changes?
