Advetures in Canning

So my new hobby this year is canning. I mentioned before I think that I have tried canning corn relish, tomatoes, and jelly. Wendesday and Thursday I started to can my from scratch tomato sauce as I have so many tomatoes and the sauce has filled up the freezer (along with my home-made chicken stock: which I plan to try to can later-more to come 😉 ) I have … Read More Advetures in Canning

Looking Back….

I was going though some old photos after my trip and came across these from the zoo in Nebraska we visited when we were out there in March for my Grandmother’s 80th birthday. There are some amazing animals there and this one tiger was very special. It said he was hurt and had to lose his one leg, but has adapted and recovered well. … Read More Looking Back….

Back…Back… Back home again…

Hello all… I know I have not posted in a few days, but we have been out-of-town and then so busy when we got back there never seemed to be time. We visited my mom again as it is inexpensive and near the beach. It was a fun trip and hubby got to do many things he likes including fishing,  visiting civil war sites (like Ft. Monroe), … Read More Back…Back… Back home again…

Look what I caught…

  Ever heard of a ribbon fish? I hadn’t until I caught one on a fishing trip we went on over the weekend. Sorry I haven’t been on in a while but we have been away visiting my mom’s neck of the woods again. Spent some time fishing and at Ft. Monroe when it was not raining. We also got to play putt-putt which I … Read More Look what I caught…

Long Cool Drink of Water

The chickens and dogs continue to enjoy the kiddy pool for water and an occassinal dip of the paws or foot. Chase especially loves the pool. He and the chickens meet around it every morning for a long cool drink of water as we try to change it out every other day to provide clean cool water for them. Having something to get up for in the … Read More Long Cool Drink of Water

Happy Feet…

Ok so maybe you can’t wear these as they are, but… they make you happy and they can be worn if you take out the flowers… Happy Wednesday the week is half over 🙂

Frozen Water

I came across this photo tonight as I was searching of what to write about. I just loved how the camera captured the water moving around Chases feet. It seems to have frozen the water in motion. This was back from when we were just teaching him to be comfortable in the water. Now he is becoming a good swimmer. What a happy swimmer … Read More Frozen Water

After the hike…

A lovely sunset after a great hike… the dogs are tuckered out. The chickens are in bed… and I am heading to do some reading before sleep 🙂 Blessings 🙂

Climb…

There are always mountains to climb and goals to reach… some climbs are easy, but most require effort and some falls. In these times I trust in the Lord as I can not do it on my own… I also know I have his love and the love of my husband in these times. “If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom … Read More Climb…

Chicken Check

Success… Our lady has been accepted back by her sisters and is sleeping back outside in her coop. The last couple of nights we have left the hurt lady outside as it was getting dark to see if she would go back to the coop to sleep. The night before last she hid under the deck until Chase (our dog) found her and she was … Read More Chicken Check

Friday’s Chick

Happy Friday… Have a safe and blessed weekend 🙂

Ten Things Thursday

So today I thought I would show you our ten ladies (my ten blessings this week) when they were a couple of months old. They were so cute and fuzzy and just starting to learn about being in the grass and enjoying the outside. They are all grown up now and so used to being outside. They are still fun to watch, but I … Read More Ten Things Thursday
