Reader’s! How the heck are you? I know it has been awhile since I last updated y’all on what is going on here at My Hotel Yorba. Sorry about that. Going back to work has really cut into my blog time… and my sleep time…and my relaxing time. Crazy how a job can do that!
No, I am not pregnant! As if!!??! No, instead we have ordered two hens to add our flock and The Majestic!! After some research I came across a farm in Cleveland, GA, called Glass Pond Farm. I got in contact with them and found out that they were about to have several hens hatching four or five different breeds of chicks. I looked up the different ones that they were offering and picked one Black Astralorpe and one Barred Rock Hen. Both breeds are good in cold winter, brown egg layers, friendly and most important docile. We don’t want to upset our head hen Turbo. The girls should be coop/run ready around mid April.
Glass Pond Farms look like a super cool farm. They breed, raise and sell ducks, turkeys, chickens and rabbits! They also offer a CSA. It is too bad that they aren’t closer to us. I would love to partake in it. Once we pick up our two girls, we will revile their names. Yes, we already picked them out. I even have a third name in my back pocket just in case!
There was a death a few weeks ago at My Hotel Yorba. My Dyson vacuum up and died on me while I was in the middle of vacuuming up a ton of Simon/Panny/Timber hair that had accumulated on the stairs heading down to the basement. I couldn’t believe it! I was not about to spend the $$$$ on another Dyson (this was my 2nd one). I do love the vacuum but right now, I just didn’t want to do it. So I looked up the best pet vacuums on the Consumer Reports website and ended up buying the Hoover Wind Tunnel Pet. It looks a lot like the Dyson Pet but nowhere near the cost of one.
So far I am giving it a B+. Maybe I am not used to it yet but there are a few issues. The cord is not as long as the Dyson. However, it does have button you push and the cord zooms back in place! Love that! The “wand” isn’t as long as they Dyson and you have to put three pieces together to get it all set up. Like the Dyson it is bag less. However when I went to empty it, half of the fur would not come out, even when I stuck my hand up into it. Gross. But I was able to get it with free shipping and since I was able to use my points from my AMEX card on Amazon, and got it for less than $100, I will suck it up and deal with it.
BTW….Suck it up and Deal With it, is a motto here at My Hotel Yorba. I love it when I hear My Man complain about something and The Boy say’s ” Well Dad do what mom tells me to do. Suck it up and deal with it.” Nice.
