Kids, Dogs, chickens, Birds, and exhaustion…

I spent the day watching my friends kids ages 2 and 7 months. For the purpose of this post we will call the 2-year-old little girl “L” and the 7 months old boy “M”. I was watching them so their mom and dad could get some things done. We started out the day collecting eggs (“L” then spent the day telling anyone who would listen “we got 5 … Read More Kids, Dogs, chickens, Birds, and exhaustion…

Barn of the day and this day…

  Another barn we found on our trip… I am currently with the kiddos I am watching for my friend and will post more on the adventures of the kiddos and dogs later. The chickens are in the yard and we have a couple more chickens laying now. The eggs are delicious 🙂

Unique view…

So I thought I would talk today about encouraging a unique view to life. We are all different and have different views, likes, dislikes, wants, needs, etc.I thought with the weekend coming up we could all think of something unique to do that would be out of the ordinary from what we usually do or what someone else would usually do. This weekend I am … Read More Unique view…

ATV’s and outdoors

I wanted to share something tonight I feel strongly about. We as humans benefit from being outdoors. It helps with mood, energy, spirit, and health. Kids especially need to be outdoors and play. It helps them with mood, energy, creativity, imagination play, social skills building, self-esteem building, and so much more. I thought I would share with you one of my husbands and my … Read More ATV’s and outdoors

Happy Day :)

The boys wanted to say Happy Thursday 🙂 The chickens tried to escape the coop this morning as the wind caught their door and gave them an escape route… but we corralled them all and they are now back in the safety of their run. Us humans are off to work 🙂

Save the Trees… (and my bird feeders)

Today started out cold… Then it rained… Then it got really nice… After it got nice outside my husband and I finally finished the new laying house for the girls it is now installed and safe (I forgot to take pictures, I will try to later). I then took some time taking pictures around the property. Here is what I found… In the back yard our cherry tree … Read More Save the Trees… (and my bird feeders)

Barn of the day...

I found this barn when we were in Nebraska. If you haven’t figured out from my blog yet… Yes I love old barns… and chickens… and my dogs….

I hope you had a good day!

A day for the birds…

Today is sunny and bright… the flowers survived the winds and the chickens are out in the yard looking for food. The only problem is we were under a freeze warning last night and it is COLD today… Hopefully it will warm up so the dogs will go out and play. It would be a nice day to bundle up and go for a … Read More A day for the birds…

A visitor to our little farm…

Today we had visitors to our little part of the earth. Our friend and my husbands second cousin came over with her two kids. Her daughter loves our dogs and chickens and was so excited to see them. She especially loved to feed them…                       She also wanted to play in the yard and … Read More A visitor to our little farm…

Chicken coop, dogs, and life…

Today was the first nice day I had to be outside and work. The chicken house got a cleaning and I finished the new boxes for “the girls” (my Dad was helpful in this process as he had a lot of good ideas). “The Girls” ran around like crazy enjoying the bugs and other goodies that they could get now that the rain had … Read More Chicken coop, dogs, and life…

Chickens and the rain…

I was cleaning our house today when I saw a funny sight… The chickens running in the yard in the rain…but not just running they seemed to be trying to dodge the raindrops, but then would stop and look up like they had been defeated. They would then give up and act as if it wasn’t raining at all pecking the ground. For some of them this … Read More Chickens and the rain…

Rainy day…

It’s raining today. I don’t always like rainy Saturday as it usually interferes with what I have to do and I get a major headache from them. Today I am ok with the rain as I need to clean house and get things back in order after our trip. I thought today would be a good one to share some more of my photos from … Read More Rainy day…
