The Missing Chicken

It doesn't feel like I've been sharing a lot of good news on the blog recently, so– spoiler alert– my two most recent farm stories actually have happy endings. I mean, if you don't count that part where I may or may not have accidentally put a staple in one of my fingers, but, ah, I'm getting ahead of myself and that's a story for a different post. Today let's talk about chickens.

So, obviously things haven't been going swimmingly on the farm for the last month or so. Some of that is because I've made mistakes, some of it is bad timing or bad weather or just plain bad luck, and some is because things at my day job have picked up recently which means I'm dedicating more brain space to work and less to things I need to be doing on the farm on the weekends (plus, holidays) which means I feel perpetually behind and unprepared.

Even with all of that going on though, there's a certain rhythm to life on the farm… I know at a certain time (just before dark) the chickens will be back in their coop, the donkeys will expect to be fed, the lights need to be turned on, the heaters plugged in. I know where to find the guineas at different times of the day, or when the cat expects to be let out, and for the most part the routine of farm life fits around the routine of the rest of my life– the commute, the day job, the workouts, the general things that need to be done to keep me in working order, so that the farm can be kept in working order.

And then there are days when it all just falls apart…

This time of year I may get back to the farm well after dark, but the chickens are usually already back in the coop– which is fairly secure inside the barn–so, while I never leave the coop open over night, I also don't stress if I know I'll be getting home late from work… I just close up the coop when I get back (any time between 6:30 and 8:30) and call it a night. Except two weeks ago when, around 7:30 PM, I received a call from my neighbor telling me one of my chickens was in his garage.

This is weird for so many reasons. 1.) This is WAY past the time for the chickens to be back on their roosts in the coop (like they have been every other night for the last 3 years, including the one time there was a raccoon in there with them), 2.) The chickens do occasionally get in the road, but they never go far enough onto my neighbors property to get to their house, and 3.) The neighbors huge dogs have pens in their garage… the dogs frequent the farm and would never hurt the Nugs but still, of all the places to voluntarily go… none of this made sense.

So my neighbor brings one loudly protesting chicken back over to my barn (best neighbors ever, seriously) and I realize yet another chicken is missing from the coop. The rest of the chickens look like this….

This is NOT GOOD. Not just because its a blurry pic, but because that's a “we're terrified” chicken formation if I've ever seen one– all scrunched together, butts facing forward, heads hiding somewhere where obviously if we can't see their faces they can't see us. Because chickens.

My conclusion was that something got in the coop, got one of the chickens, scared the crap out of the rest of them, and one of the remaining Nugs made a break for it and decided, out of all the places she could hide on my actual property (where the chickens hang out ALL DAY), that the neighbors garage with the big dogs was going to be the safest place to go.

I love my chickens but, ugh, the logic.

Still, I spent several hours outside with all the flashlights I own trying to find that chicken (or even evidence that something bad had happened to her) but there was nothing. No blood, no piles of feathers, nothing. Until…

Yeah. I heard the chickens making noise in their coop, ran back to the barn, and found this little guy just hanging out by the chicken food.

The thing is, this is a tiny possum. Opossum? Whatever.  I mean it's not that tiny possums can't kill chickens, but it's literally a third of the size of any of my birds… if it killed one and dragged it off somewhere to feast, why would it be desperately trying to get into the bin where I keep the chicken feed?

I went through all the mental exercises about whether or not the missing chicken could still be alive and where she might be. Still, it seemed like the worst case scenario had been coming true on the farm recently, so I finally went to bed after midnight with a heavy heart, sure that I was going to be missing that chicken for good.

And then, the next morning I jumped out of bed as soon as I woke up, ran out to the barn, and what should I see hanging out just outside the coop??

THE MISSING CHICKEN! Strutting around indignantly because she'd been shut out of the coop and wanted to get back in so she could lay an egg.

There have not been many times in my life where I thought I might collapse on the floor of a shit-covered barn in relief, but that was one of them.

Although the other thing I found that day was this…

An empty live trap.

I've set the damn thing every night for the last two weeks with different bait, and I've yet to catch Tiny Possum.

We have, however, settled into a new routine around here. If I'm home and have the coop closed up before 6 PM everything is fine, but, on the two occasions I haven't managed to get home before 7 this same chicken has been missing from the coop, which then requires me to spend a fair amount of time outside searching for her with a flashlight.  But– good news– I've become something of an expert chicken-finder recently, and each time I've managed to find and catch the missing Nug and get her back in the coop before I go to bed.

Seriously. There's no end to the adventures on the farm, but at least this one has a happy ending. (It's been two weeks and none of my baits have worked for the possum in the live trap, but I expect I'll get the little guy eventually.)

My art at Tucson Coffee Roasters

I have my art hanging at Tucson Coffee Roasters for the month of September.

I don't drink very much coffee, but when I do I believe in support local only.

Tucson Coffee Roast is a treat for my husband and I.  They give chocolate covered coffee beans with every cup. YUM!  The coffee is good too, but I like to get me a chai latte - nice and spicy.

I don't know if it is common to buy art at a coffee shop, but I thought it would be a great place to hang my art during a non-art-show month. Just to get more eyes on it.  So far, I've sold five pieces which is very exciting and completely unexpected.  So cool!

Morning Coffee


“Morning Coffee”
10 x 10 acrylic on cradled wood panel

I actually don't drink coffee very much anymore. Maybe once a week, if that.  It just makes me too jittery.  I do, however, love the smell of coffee and I love going to local coffee shops with my hubby.   Tea usually fills my daily cup – Earl Grey is my favorite. It's warm, delicious and doesn't pack as big of a caffeine punch.

Shop Update


My World
11 x 14 acrylic on stretched canvas
(sold)

I painted this precious mom and baby painting a couple of weeks ago. I had sketched out the idea for it a really long time ago and finally felt the need to paint it. I have prints, cards and art blocks available in my shop.

I added other stuff too. Like, new original art, a couple of ornaments and new art blocks.  I hope you will wonder over and check it out.  There is a new sale section too!

Just finished up the last of the art shows for this season and am planning a busy summer of new creations to get ready for the fall. And….. I am in the process of planning out a new e-course. It'll be portrait painting of course. Newer stuff though.

But first, I have surgery tomorrow to remove my pesky little appendix. It is outpatient and I should be home by tomorrow evening!

Ganesha

It is an amazing and magical thing when you get to meet someone you “know” from online. Last weekend, I was so very lucky to meet Elspeth McLean. Truly, the absolute highlight of my weekend.  She is a gorgeous and shining soul and words cannot describe how radiant, lovely and joyful she is. I feel so honored to have met her. She decided to take my Ganesha painting  home with her too.

Have you seen her dotillism artwork and mandala rocks? They are so amazing. I am very lucky to have two of them! They are beautiful, peace and heartfelt treasures. She has the loveliest video on how she makes them here.


Ganesha ~ New Beginnings
Art Prints Available

A little bit about Ganesha:

Ganesha (aka, Ganesh, Ganapati, Vinayaka) is the Hindu deity known as the remover of obstacles, the deva of wisdom and new beginnings. Often times, Ganesha is honored at the beginning of a journey, ritual or ceremony.

There are many variations the iconic Ganesha, and also many symbolic meanings. For example, the big head of the elephant symbolizes “big think”. Small mouth means to talk less, big ears for listening more. Open hand for blessing those on the right path and the hand carrying a “sweet” bowl symbolizes the rewards of hard work. The big belly is for digesting both the good and bad in life. There is more, not depicted in this version, but I love all of the symbolism and meaning of the wise elephant.

A few pics from my art show over the weekend, Art in the Garden.  What a beautiful venue.  The lovely host, Glennda, actually has the show on her beautiful property twice a year. The guests get some tasty food, beautiful music and fun shopping.

Colorful Desert Blooms at Tohono Chul

I had a wonderful time at the artist reception for the Tohono Chul show, "In Full Bloom". It is such a beautiful venue and they do such a fantastic job of hanging the art and making everything look so lovely.

Five pieces sold the first night, which was very exciting! It is kinds fun to see my colorful desert blooms hanging in the gallery all grouped together. The show will be open for viewing until April 24th.

Over the next week, I wanted to try to post the paintings that were in the show. Posting them on my blog helps me to chronologically keep track of what I've done. Seven of the paintings in the show were painted at the end of last year (most of which I have already shared in past posts) and 9 were painted this month.


"Elf Owl"
(sold)

This cute little guy was painted last November and I can't believe I never shared him. He is one of my most favorite owl paintings that I've done.


"Succulent"
(sold)

This little succulent painting, and the next one below, are newer.


"Cactus Bloom"
(sold)

I am thinking I might revisit these little cactus blooms and succulents on bigger canvases.

My ruptured appendix story

If you follow me on instagram or Facebook, then you already know that I was in the hospital last week for a ruptured appendix.   If you don’t know the story, then please read on…

Quick disclaimer: Always, always get checked by a doctor if you are experiencing appendicitis pain, which is generally a horrible pain in the lower right side of your abdomen.  Unless, that is, you are like me and don’t have the textbook symptoms.

I thought I had food poisoning, the Wednesday before I went into the hospital. I was experiencing abdominal pain, but it was in the center of my tummy above my belly button. I also couldn’t eat and had some nausea and vomiting–nothing horrible though. I mean, I was driving the kids around, making dinner and doing my normal thing. I did have to lay down for a bit, but nothing alerted me to needing to see a doctor — I am also a nurse who knows the standard signs and symptoms of appendicitis, none of which I thought I had (this can also be interpreted as: stubborn with an unwillingness to see a doctor or go to the hospital unless ABSOLUTELY necessary). Am I breathing? – yes. Am I bleeding?- no. Then we are all good.

By Friday, the pain had eased and I was feeling better.  The pain had eased because my appendix had ruptured. The appendix doesn’t always burst, it can be more like a slow leak. So there was pressure, pressure, pressure then a slow release, which was my appendix rupturing. This slow release of pressure had allowed me to no longer feel that irritating pain in the middle of my tummy, I was no longer experiencing nausea and I was keeping food down.  I thought, well that was weird, but now I feel a lot better.

That is, until Sunday, when I started feeling nauseated, but this time with fevers.  It wasn’t until Monday morning that I started experiencing pain to the touch, in my lower right abdomen. Ah-ha, now that is my appendix, at which point I headed into the hospital.

After a grueling 6 hours in the ER triage chain, I finally got a CT scan, initially confirming that there was indeed “something brewing around my appendix” and later confirming that it had ruptured, probably several days ago. I couldn’t believe it! Here I was, laughing and chatting with my husband, not feeling all that bad and I had a ruptured appendix! Everything I knew about appendicitis was thrown out the window.

What had happened (and what sometimes happens to other people) is that my body walled off the infection protecting me and the rest of my body.  The protocol nowadays, in this particular instance, is to avoid surgery which can be dangerous with a high likelihood of exposing the rest of the body to the infection and possible loss of part of the colon. I freaking LOVE my colon, thank you very much! Thank you Dr.A for knowing not to cut into me. The new treatment includes IV antibiotics combined with fasting (no food or drinks) for a few days while getting IV fluids. This takes the burden of digestion away while allowing the antibiotics to work and the body to heal. It worked for me, because within 24 hours I had very little pain and no fevers and felt almost normal by the end of my stay. I was able to go home after 5 days and 4 nights in the hospital (which is not the best place to get any rest, btw).

I will be on oral antibiotics for 10 days and on a soft diet until further notice. At least, it is my own home-made food that I will be eating. I will happily take it. And, I will have surgery to remove, my hopefully calm, quiet and uninfected appendix in 3 months.

Now, I am trying to get back on track and deal with the side effects of oral antibiotics. I also have a ton of emails to reply to and overdue deadlines, so it will be quiet around here until and can get caught up!

Saving my favorite three paintings, from my Tohono Chul exhibit, for last.

Living in Arizona my whole life, I grew up seeing a lot of earthy pastel colored southwestern art.  I know that it is not the only kind, but it is what I remember most. I really wanted my desert inspired art to highlight the brightness of the sun and show how striking the cactus blooms are against a blue or sunny sky, or amidst the calming green of the cactus. There is so much colorful beauty in the southwestern desert.

I will have new prints, of a few select paintings, in my shop soon!
