I hate raccoons

Last night while I was at the Fashion Show (post and pictures to come), a raccoon broke into the chicken coop and killed one of my girls.  This time, the sneaky mailto:b@$!@%5Ed came through the door....How??? Well he climbed on top of the coop, reached down and unlocked the top door, jumped in and killed one.  The other two girls fled and as dumb as chickens ususally are, they came right up to our sliding kitchen door and began to peck at it until my son came out to see what was going on.  That was when we knew something was wrong!!!  My brother killed the raccoon, the chicken was already dead.  The other two hens were scared to death though......They were okay this morning, but there were no eggs.  Thank Goodness, I'll be getting three more hens in about a month.

Sunday in Naples

I'll be at church this morning down in Naples, Florida.  You have to see this church - it is massive.......and absolutley beautiful.  I don't know how many people fit in there, but it is a lot.   They have five weekend English masses and then a Spanish mass!  I'll take a picture if  I can when I'm down there. 

Then we will be off to the beach (if it is good weather :))  This is Lowdermilk Beach!

Nothing new

I haven't written in a while.....Here are some of the things that I have been up to....
  • I got out all my son's college graduation party invitations - Yes, I've invited 130 people!!
  • Working, working, working, working and working...
  • I got all my jobs done so that this weekend, I can go away and not have to worry about any of my work...phew!!!
  • I finished one account this morning, I have a Fashion Show meeting tonight and tomorrow is a Library Board meeting and teaching my last Zumba class for a week.
  • I leave Thursday night for a little R & R for the weekend.
  • Praying......
I have a lot on my plate right now.  I'll try to post more, but I can't promise anything for a week or so.....However, I will have pictures of my daughter at her Fashion Show next week.  She is wearing a beautiful sundress from Lizy B's of Hamden with cute silver sparkly shoes....

THE egg!

One hen laid an enormous egg yesterday.....I have never seen one that huge....a regular large egg is on the right, the XXXXXL egg is on the left.  It doesn't even fit into an egg box....I felt sorry for the hen!!!!

Spring Flowers

I planted my pansies today.  Three boxes in the front of the house and one bucket in the back yard are done.  I have one more bucket to do in the backyard and then I need to plant my half barrel at the end of the driveway.  But I will plant something different there.  Last year, I did zinnias and I'm thinking of geraniums this year.

My hyacinths are beautiful....but only one tulip and one daffodil came up this year.....which is very strange!

College years

My oldest son only has one more month at Uconn....then he is officially a college graduate.  Oh my goodness!!!  It has been a rough four years but he managed and he succeeded and he will graduate with a BS in Psychology and a minor in Criminal Justice......he wants to be a police officer.....The road wasn't always smooth but he still managed it in four years.  I am very, very proud of him.

Let's talk about  money....But then again, let's don't!!   Why is college so freaking expensive?  And this is a state school....Not a private University. 

I can't even talk about my second son yet......He is a junior at Uconn and has one more year.....cha-ching...

I wish you all the happiest and holiest of Easter seasons.  This is my favorite week of church, mass, family, friends and life.  Holy Thursday mass, Good Friday service at 3:00 pm, Sunrise Service at a local farm at 6:30 am on Easter Sunday and then Easter Mass at 10:00 Sunday morning........God is good.

I enjoy every moment....I hope you do too!
