If you’ve been following this blog for any amount of time, you know I publish a ‘Wicked Walk’ every Wednesday. Only, this past Wednesday, I didn’t. This was due to several reasons.
Number One. Randy, my oldest and dearest rooster, has bumblefoot. I’d never heard of it but was trolling the internet trying to find out what was wrong with his feet. Turns out, it is an infection that will require a down-home, personal surgery in my kitchen. This is happening tomorrow, if anyone wants to show up and help. It will require me catching Randy after dark, wrapping him in a towel, soaking his feet in warm water, taking a sharp knife and cutting off dead flesh and extracting a core of hardened puss from said foot. Then wrapping it up and praying he lets me catch him again every 3 days until the wound is healed.
Number Two. Instead of staying home, blogging, writing, home-schooling and cleaning house like I do on a normal Wednesday……I went to Dallas with one of my best friends. And I drooled at the American Girl store. And I had Starbucks. And I decided I wanted to live at Ikea, forever. And I bought a crystal growing kit, nature puzzle, Mars putty and a chicken that shoots eggs out of its butt at a toy store next to White House/Black Market. I figured I better stay in the toy store.
So, please forgive me my lack of a walk. I promise to hop back on the wagon this week.
Number Three. I’ve also, kinda been writing a kids book. About a rooster. I finished it this week. My mom thought it was going to be a picture book.
So did I. But, 15,731 words later…….I think it is going to be a chapter book.
Thank for reading, y’all are the best!
I’ll let you know how the bumblefoot surgery works out……..poor Randy.
