Sorry for being MIA, Lifestyle changes

It's been so long since I've posted.  I miss posting and  miss reading up on what everyone  is doing. 
Life with a retired husband is different to say the least.  I was trying to make it a smooth transition, but in the process made a mess of my schedule.  So, I had to take a step back and reevaluate my situation. Though my husband is awake a couple of hours before me, he waits for me so that we can still have breakfast together.  He then goes off to do the 'outside' things while I do the 'inside' things. We do like to take a day or two out of our week to run errands and just have fun together.  We also have to factor in the grandchildren; they like to spend the night or day with us during the week and weekend.  In fact, we had our youngest grandchild for a week while the rest of her family went to Disneyland. She was just too young and wouldn't have enjoyed the waiting in line and fast-pace schedule.
We've also gone a little greener (eco-green), we now have 5 egg-laying chickens.  I know, what?? It's been what seems so long since we bought eggs, that's the upside.  The downside is, my husband likes to set them free during the day, in the backyard, where Hoku(dog) once claimed as hers, sometimes roll her body in the grass, sun bathe, you know, be a dog.  Well, today she needed a bath to take off the chicken poop.  While I know it will be awhile before hubby builds the chicken coop I want with the enclosed scratch area, Hoku will have to do her business in another area; she can't be bathed everytime she goes outside.
Since my last post, I nearly broke my foot; was limping around for awhile, but I'm good to go now. 
I've acquired an Eclips machine as a birthday gift; haven't used it much. I'm so used to using my Cricut.
I got these birthday goodies from Brenda. How sweet is that?!

Brenda is so talented!
Currently on my work table are cushion backs for a lap-table. My husband cut out these boards for us to use with our laptops.  I was suppose to make the cushion backs for them; never did.  So now I'm doing four at a time.  I'll post pics when they're done.
So, what's on your work table? I'd love to hear what you all are doing.
'Til then, Aloha,
