Snow days…

We had more snow today… got a couple of more inches… it sure was coming down hard at one point… We had been keeping the chickens in their run… But once the snow let up a little I opened the door and they still would only come to the door… but that’s okay. Chase is loving the snow and spending time with me outside … Read More Snow days…

Snow Chickens…

Snow Tree and Snow Paws…

A little tired tonight, been at the vet with Chase this morning and Doctor with my Grandma all after noon. Thought I would share another snow photos from our place…  

Love after Christmas…

Our Christmas is over, but the snow still has lingered. I just love snow (especially when I don’t have to be out driving in it 😉 I took the pups out for a while to play… I just love the photos I got of my Chase in the snow… Baxter was a little under the weather so he came in, stayed in most of the … Read More Love after Christmas…

Merry White Christmas!

Christmas Eve my wish came true.. it snowed and snowed… it snowed until late in the night… It was a great way to bring in our saviors birthday… The dogs enjoyed playing in the snow and even let me snap a photo under a tree while they caught their breath… Some of our chickens came out and others hid from the snow… It was … Read More Merry White Christmas!

Family Focus… White Christmas

Yesterday was WINDY… so much so we have had to take down some of our Christmas decorations outside and our table on the back porch almost flew off. The chickens are not allowed out as it would appear they may blow off. That put a little damper on yesterday as last night we had surprised my Grandmother and took her my mom and step-father to see … Read More Family Focus… White Christmas

Family focus on a busy day…

I thought during focus on the family week I would share some things hubby and I do when things are busy to get family time in. Whether you have kids or not family time is important for families and mariages 🙂 A few things we do when busy to keep up with family time: 1. Family dinners- almost every night we sit down together … Read More Family focus on a busy day…

Focus on the Family…

In light of recent events I have changed this weeks value of Christmas to Focusing on our Families…This year has been an unusual year for holidays for many reasons and no particular reason at all… Now with recent events it has placed a dark shadow over many people’s holiday season. The only thing I can think of is for us to focus on what we do … Read More Focus on the Family…

Kindness from others….

So this past week I was nominated for two new awards… I have been slow in accepting as things have gotten away from me. Yet through showing kindness to other this week it has been shown back to me 🙂 I would like to thank The Meandering Matriarch~ AKA:  Suellen Carey-Clarke for nominating me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. I have received this … Read More Kindness from others….

Sadness in the week of kindness…

So this week was supposed to be about kindness and what we can do to show kindness…. But tonight I am full of sadness after the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT shooting. My mind is spinning once again and I am moved to tears after hearing all of those little kids and teachers who lost their lives at the hands of a … Read More Sadness in the week of kindness…

Cooking Kindness…

Today I took some cookies to work and saw how happy it made those I served them to. It put a smile on people’s faces even if they didn’t want a cookie they were happy to be included in the offer. When I got home and was making dinner hubby asked for some cupcakes… So I made some gluten-free chocolate cupcakes for hubby… normal … Read More Cooking Kindness…

Kindness helps a bad mood…

So kindness is really in the small things and in the small ways we show God to others. Today when hubby and I went to get our blood work done the receptionist was in a bad mood…. She was overwhelmed with the computers being slow, fax down, and patients coming in. I made it my goal to show her kindness and make her smile. … Read More Kindness helps a bad mood…
