Roosters in my Kitchen!!!


Have you ever had an invasion or infestation of some sort? My kitchen has run rampant with chickens and roosters!!! This guy right here is the instigator! He was spotted clucking around an art shop in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and insisted on going home with me. He bobbles his head each morning in greeting. My darling husband brought home a few more crazed looking buddies and thus a collection of randy roosters and coquettish chickens was born. Of course, once your friends are aware of what they consider a "theme", chickens and roosters adorn each gift you receive. I am grateful for each and every rooster and chicken...however, the must visit on rotation or we would not have room to cook or eat! None of our roosters or chickens look remotely like anything you would see on a farm. They tend towards the unique...just like us!
I have some watercolor prints of a rooster and chicken in fabulous bright colors (they came home with the funky chicken/rooster above) One states, "The rooster crows because he knows Hope Dawns" and the other, "So many eggs in one basket, Celebrate" I think these are apt descriptions of the Loose Lemon's household. We are so very blessed and in being so must celebrate each day with JOY and GRATITUDE!!! And a healthy dose of laughter. As my friend Jayne always says, "No matter how dark the night, morning always comes" One of my neighbors had honest to goodness live chickens and roosters and sure enough...every morning that rooster would crow letting us know a new day was dawning.
With each new day begins a new opportunity...no matter what the yesterdays are like...today is a new day. I just love the very thought of having a new beginning each and every day! And I would really like some chickens and a rooster! I am truly not a morning person but the sound of the rooster always cheered me up...it is something about that cock a doodle doo...it is like I'm up, lets get this party started!!!

What's up with blogger? I space everything just the way I like it and randomness ensues...am I missing something?

Blogger's been odd lately. On a chickenish note, our chickens are just about ready to start laying eggs! We do not have a rooster (thank the heavens), but we should be getting eggs pretty soon. Don't ask me to explain about roosterless hens and eggs.

Connie said...

Eggs! Woohoo! Is this just a Daddy and J thing or are you girls helping? You can have eggs to eat but won't get baby chicks w/o the rooster is the way I understand it.
All though, you explaining roosterless hens and eggs could be quite entertaining.

That is true, the roosterless hens thing. As for the entertainment, I'm not real sure about that.

Your rooster is very cute. I have one rooster teapot. It literally took me years to find a ceramic rooster I liked. My brother responded by giving me rooster calendars for a few years. Too funny,

One of my grandmothers had some chickens and a rooster, and although it's been decades since I spent the night with her, I can still remember awakening to the sound of her roosters heralding the dawn.
