Moons, Chickens and Fall

Our weekend started by me breaking out my DSLR to try and capture the beauty of the MOON! 
I am sad to admit I have owned this camera for almost a year and just figured out how to change the f-stops..... :( This was only after fighting with the camera... 
Full Moon
The Next Morning
I had to work

Dan and I awoke and went about our normal routine we brought Alice out o go to the bathroom and we let the chickens out.  Unfortunately that is were our normal ended. I opened the chicken door and discovered that our Owly girl was what first appeared to be dead... Unfortunately she was not, it sorta looked like she may have suffered a stroke and couldn't walk or stand.
Dan and I made the decision to put her out of her misery... 

RIP Owly

Later in the day we went grocery shopping and bought 20 Packets of Knorr Rice and Noodle Packets..
They were ONLY $1 per packet! 

We then continued on to my parents house were Dan changed the oil in my mothers car for her. Then all four of us; Dan, My mother, Alice and I went for a walk down the road. This was a great thing, I didn't talk much about this or  at all on hear but my mother went through with gastric bypass surgery on August and after many complications and a month long stay in the hospital, she is doing
My Fall Attire 

 Dan and I then spent the rest of the day around home, working on the chicken coop and taking another walk around Bristol with Alice.

Yes this week Monday is apart of my weekend. When I have a Sunday off I get Monday off too.
This morning Stewy  our rooster crowed for the first time!

oh... and we recieved this egg from one of the chickens:

That is what you call and OUCH! egg. I could barely close the carton. 

What are the plans for the rest of my day? Not much... Writing some blog posts maybe and then I have a Girl Scout meeting today! Oh yea thats right I am now an assistant Girl Scout leader!
