De Planes…

Hubby at the museum looking at all the planes. I liked the light squares in the photo and the light dark contrasts. The museum I spoke of yesterday had a lot of neat planes that if I heard right were actually flown at some point. It would be worth going back to when the weather is warmer and we can see the outside exhibits more.

Birthday Trip…

The other weekend we went to the Marine Corps Museum to check it out for hubbys birthday. They had a lot of history that hubby knew or enjoyed learning about. I also enjoyed reading about the history and trying out some indoor settings on my camera. Hope you enjoy some of the shots I got…

Re “cooping”

Still taking it easy after work. Hoping this cold will go away, but still had to get things done 🙂 The dogs are sleeping in their chair and the chickens are in their run for the day due to the ice storm… The fire is going, everyone is warm, and to be fed shortly 🙂 Hope you have a blessed week 🙂

Chicken Helper

I think I got a touch of a cold today so I stayed inside and did the chores that needed to get done before napping and then making dinner. I had to check on the chickens and get the eggs as hubby let them out before work. Chase is my chicken helper… He loves to go out to the coop with me and keeps … Read More Chicken Helper

Snowy Calm

The chickens were getting braver today in the snow and ventured out to see what they could eat. It was such a pretty day. After a little more heavy snow this morning, this afternoon the snow was falling softly and it was so calming to see. Once hubby got home we cleared the driveway, provided the chickens with fresh food and water, and hauled in some more … Read More Snowy Calm

Happy Birthday To…

Hubby 🙂 Today is hubbys birthday. I won’t tell you how old he is to save him 😉 I made him the above funfetti cake with buttercream icing from scratch… his favorite. He wanted chinese for dinner and with the additional snow we got today (2 more inches) it was nice to be inside after work baking 🙂 In honor of hubbys birthday I will tell you … Read More Happy Birthday To…

I woke up this morning and saw…

Isn’t it lovely? Got a couple of inches total… just enough to make things look pretty and clean 🙂

Baby chicks… looking back

I thought I would share a photo I found of our “ladies” when they were just “chicks”… Hope you have a blessed week 🙂

January Birthdays

We have a lot of January Birthdays in our family. My step-fathers birthday was yesterday, hubby’s aunts was earlier this month, my hubbys is in a week, and his brother’s is the day after. Then we have a bunch of friends too…. so it’s a month of celebration of life to start off the year 🙂  Any of you out there have a January birthday?

Funny chickens…

One of the “ladies” enjoying the last of the snow… I think they like to eat the snow for water rather then drinking all the fresh water we had out for them… Funny chickens 🙂

Chase’s Chilli

So I wanted to find a chilli recipe that was a little lighter and didn’t require beef. So I looked and found a white bean turkey chilli recipe and made it my own… so here is Chases Chilli             You will need: 2 sticks of celery chopped into small cubes 2 whole carrots chopped into small cubes 2 medium … Read More Chase’s Chilli

Still I feel good that I can come home tonight play cards with my Grandma and blog to all my wonderful followers 🙂 Thought I would share a recent photo of the “ladies”. The “lady” that got hurt this past fall and we almost lost is on … Read More The lady is healing…
