Did I mention that I started that club over 2 years ago by myself and I have grown it to what it is today. That club has been one of my biggest 4-H projects until my fiber project came along. Why do they want to destroy everything I have worked for? Why do they want to change everything about the club that made it a club to begin with.... Can you tell I was hurt and angry and ready to kill someone? .... Okay maybe I wouldn't go that far but I was very, very upset with all of the members. Even myself for turning it over to them to run. None of the members is thinking of what is best for the club they are all just trying to get their own personal wants taken care of.... Enough ....
Okay so I didn't get the redo I wanted but in the morning Mom suggested I make a phone call. That phone call was to our Extention Agent and 4-H Educator. I did and he assured me that he would make it a requirement that the coop have insurance and that the code of conduct be followed. He is the only left that knows what it took to get the money to build the coop. Mom and I wrote for a grant for that money. No one helped us ... Just her and I. We ended up having to submit it three times and in the end we got the grant. It was hard work and the kids in the club don't have any idea what it took to get it done and I am afraid they are going to trash it. Anyway, I feel better about it after talking to our Agent. Not great ... but I am hoping our Extention Agent will make them keep it taken care of.
After that Mom tried to keep me busy. She taught me to weedeat and she mowed the yard. We talked about dreams we had if the coop did get moved. (Hint: Fiber studio) I think she was trying to get me to see the bright side ... (It wasn't really helping but I didn't tell her that)
Then Last night Ms. Karen came over to see everything. (She was away on a business trip for a whole week) She brought Mom something and I am so into feeling each of them. What are they??? This....
Black Welsh Mountain
California Variegated Mutant (CVM)
North Country Cheviot
Gulf Coast Native
English Leicester Longwool
#Teeswater x Cotswold
#Wensleydale x Cotswold
Okay so that kept me busy most the night ... That and eating Ms. Karen's Pizza! YUMMMM! LOL After Pizza Dad and I had to go fix fence so I didn't have much time to think about poultry club after that.
Then today ... I have to ask myself the same question .... What did I do??? Well, You see it all started when I went to work. Most of you know I work at the sale barn with Dad on Saturdays. Well, do you believe in love at first site?? I do kind of ... Okay it isn't really that kind of love at first site but I HAD to have her ... Look for yourself ....
Did I mention I am feeling better about the changes that are going on in my life right now??? Yes, buying soft sheepies can do that to me ... LOL
