Monday… Monday… So good to me…

It’s the start to a new week. I thought I would share this photo with you from our hike yesterday. The boys told me they wanted to go back today, but the weather is not cooperating. The sun came out briefly and the chickens were ready to use this to their full advantage. (Sorry I think the chicken tail pictures are funny and cute 😉 ) … Read More Monday… Monday… So good to me…

Hikes and Battlefields…

It was such a nice day, perfect weather for a hike. We went to a local battlefield and hiked all over that place. The dogs were in heaven… they LOVE to hike and walk.             My wonderful hubby carried my camera backpack so I coud have both my lenses at hand and it also allowed us to carry water … Read More Hikes and Battlefields…

The very bland morning…

It’s a still and very bland day… you know one of those days where there is no color in the sky and the sun is nowhere to be seen. It isn’t raining, it isn’t windy, it is just still. The chickens don’t seem happy about this type of day. They are out, but seem more skittish, especially after Chase had to scare away a bird that was getting … Read More The very bland morning…

Sunny day… Chasing the clouds away

Today was another sunny day! We had to take advantage of it as Mr. Weatherman says it’s going to rain all day tomorrow. The chickens discovered today one of our fence posts had come loose and they showed us they know how to try to get out… that’s fixed now.             I was reading a post the other day … Read More Sunny day… Chasing the clouds away

10 Things Thursday… 10 Things I Enjoyed About the Festival

So I kind of forgot to do my 10 things post on Tuesday… I don’t know where my brain was. So today I though I would make up for it by sharing 10 things I enjoyed about the festival I went to over the weekend. 10.  The different flower displays.             9. The scenery.           … Read More 10 Things Thursday… 10 Things I Enjoyed About the Festival

The sun came out :)

The sun was out in full force today. It was such a beautiful day I was so eager to get home and into the yard. The dogs spent the day laying in the sun and playing. The chickens were all over the yard and sunning themselves.     Hubby spent time mowing the grass and weed eating. I spent time in the garden, cleaning … Read More The sun came out 🙂

Was the weather man right?

One of my favorite flowers is the Gerber daisy. I love the colors, the design, and how they grow. Now I enjoy daisy’s in general, but this has to be my favorite variety. It’s almost like a sunshine (which I also enjoy). Which brings me to today… my motto worked the sun came out and was out all day. Over the weekend the weather … Read More Was the weather man right?

Whats a girl to do?

The weather man says this rain is supposed to break tomorrow… thank goodness… it is WET here. The chickens have been kept in their run until this afternoon when it went from torrential down pour to light sprinkles. They are happy to be out.             Chase has a vet appointment today to get him a booster on his rabies since he … Read More Whats a girl to do?

Soggy Sunday after Sunny Saturday…

It started raining shortly after we got done at the Flower and Garden festival my Mom and I went to yesterday. It was so sunny and beautiful the entire time we were at the show and I had to sing a little praise to God for holding off the rain till after we got to see the whole festival. I got so many good shots … Read More Soggy Sunday after Sunny Saturday…

Festival Day… if it doesn’t rain

Today the sun is trying hard to stay out from behind the clouds… The chickens are enjoying some grub in and out of the coop while they take turns laying. They use to all lay in on of the first boxes we built, but now only one or two lay there, and the others lay in the new back box we built in their new … Read More Festival Day… if it doesn’t rain

Fabulous Friday

After work today my husband and father decided it was time to get all the tractors running right since it is supposed to rain all weekend. This included a new battery for one, oil, and other types of tune up things. So the tractors where line up for inspection of what they would need (including my Dad’s old Ford tractor)…         … Read More Fabulous Friday

The chicken or the egg

While collecting eggs yesterday my husband found some weird ones in the nests. They were not very big and they were totally soft. Now we give our girls oyster shells they can eat as they want so we knew that was not the issue, so I went to look in the recent Chicken magazine by Hobby Farms as they just had something on this. … Read More The chicken or the egg
