Happy Pandemonium Day! (Contest)
Friday, July 14th, 2023

UPDATE: The winner is…Stephanie!

Yes! It’s a holiday! Another of those weird ones I like to highlight because don’t we need more reasons to celebrate? It celebrates the mayhem and chaos in our everyday lives. Something we usually hate, but today, we can revel in it!

Looking around my life, I can find plenty of chaos. I could take a daily picture of my desk, but the pictures I’m sharing today are much more fun. Our family decided to take the dive into raising our own chickens for their eggs—and what an adventure that has been!

Of course, my daughter went shopping for cute little chicks and came home with ducks and guinea fowl, too! Since then, we’ve added geese.

The guinea fowl have proven to be our “chaos agents.” Here’s the “best” picture I have of the raucous pair. They were much younger. They don’t stand ever stand still (my dd says it’s like they have ADHD).

This is what they sound like! They are very loud.


We didn’t know it at the time, but they are excellent little guards for the chickens. They are very vocal and scare off hawks and snakes and anything else that might try to enter the chickens’ yard.

Here’s a recent picture.

And because we’re on the topic of our birds, here are some more adorable pics.


Can’t forget our geese and ducks.


Here’s our first egg!


For a chance to win a $5 Amazon GC, share about some chaos agent or chaotic event in your life.

    I love the guinea fowl pictures! Chaos! Right now my garden is my chaos. We just got into beetle season and I am running around trying to save my beloved bean plants.

    My chaos agent would be my 3 1/2 year old grandson. Constantly on the go, has to help with whatever I’m doing, and potty training? On my Lord, I don’t know if I’ll survive that….😆

    The chaos agent in my life right now would have to be my son.

    Love seeing your photos, Delilah! As for us, I don’t think we’ve encountered a greater bringer-of-chaos than our kids, LOL!
