Jenny walked out of the room, her face beet-red, feeling embarrassed and ashamed of the man she brought as her date. Not only had he completely under-dressed for the occasion, even though she told him what everyone else would be wearing, he showed up twenty five minutes late! Then there was the conversation with her boss! He had absolutely no filter, telling her boss about their intimacy and what they did when they were alone together in the bedroom. She would never be able to look at her boss again, not without shame written all over her face. He had been one of her worst decisions ever!
Somedays it’s there somedays it ain’t Somedays it’s dark black it looks like dark paint. No one escapes it Everyone can try A shadow is scary It makes scared people cry. we don’t know who’s hiding we don’t know how far the darkness will get you but it won’t leave a scar.
Things that are delightful: 1. chocolate ice cream 2. a sunny beach 3. a baby laughing 4. impeachment 5. a good night’s sleep 6. extra money 7. praise 8. love 9. purposeful ignorance 10. yellow cake with chocolate frosting
We walked out to the coop. The heater had been left on for the chickens but with the winds making it feel like 10 below zero, the heater almost was a waste. I tried the door. Frozen shut. This was when I had to trudge back to the garage and look for any metal item I could get to jam in the door and pry it open.
With the door finally pried open, the darkness hid the hens. As my eyes adjusted to the darkness I saw that no hens had perished in the cold, they huddled together to keep warm and alive. I moved to fill their feed bin with food and turned to check the water. The galvanized waterer was situated on a hot plate to supposedly keep the water from freezing. I suppose it worked because there was water in the trough for them, except that was frozen from the cold air. This was my only issue with keeping the flock, keeping water defrosted in winter.
