Moons, Chickens and Fall

Weekend
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
Saturday: 
I had to work

Sunday: 
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
AMAZING!
  
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.

Monday:
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!
