Spring Surprise

Are you ready for the surprise I promised yesterday…. Baby chicks… Buff Orpington baby chicks to be exact 🙂 I am really excited about trying a new bread and these ladies are supposed to grow up to be a nice brown/tan color. We got them at one of many feed stores we have been checking out to see who was going to get what bread in. … Read More Spring Surprise

Suprising Wednesday

Today was an interesting day… it was sunny and slightly windy when we left the house this morning and then by the time we got where we were going it was snowing and pretty windy, then by the time we got home it was cloudy and windy… so windy. You can tell spring is trying to come out as the local markets we passed … Read More Suprising Wednesday

Good Day…To Good Week

We are having a stay-cation this week… never heard of this… it is a vacation where you stay home to get things done that you can’t when you are working full-time. So we have a lot planed for this week and are trying to make sure the dogs can be with us even on our errands and day trips. We are enjoying our time this … Read More Good Day…To Good Week

Cow Face

It was another cloudy day, but the sun still tried to come out to play. We had a lot to do today and got it all done 🙂 The boys got to go with us all day and had a good time riding in their Daddy’s truck. On our travels we saw this big guy staring at us when we were at a stop … Read More Cow Face

Frist Walk of Spring

We finally got a really nice day yesterday and had time to take the dogs for a walk/run… Our boys love it when they get to go to certain parks as there is opportunity for them to run and explore off leash and still be safe so we don’t worry. I just love to watch the progression of a dog in mid run… How … Read More Frist Walk of Spring

Have You Seen This… Blind dog and his Best Friend

I had to share this little gem of a find. Hubby showed it to me the other day and instantly I thought of my two boys. Not because Baxter is blind, but because these two pups look so much like my Baxter and Chase and I know my Chase would do anything for his big brother… You know how some people say we all … Read More Have You Seen This… Blind dog and his Best Friend

Snow to Sun

Two days ago it looked like this… Today it was sunny and looked like this… Funny how it can go from freezing to sunny… not to say it wasn’t freezing even though it was sunny the wind was blowing so hard. I was expecting to come home and find the chickens unable to move and frozen against the fence. They were all moving around … Read More Snow to Sun

Chicken Neck (Yucky picture to follow)

I finally got a picture of the lady who has the feather’s missing from her neck. I wanted to post them to see if anyone had any additional advice. We are keeping the purple spray and a lotion on her daily. I may have to isolate her though if it doesn’t get better soon, but I hate to as she loves being outside and … Read More Chicken Neck (Yucky picture to follow)

Quite the snow…

So when we got up at 4 AM there was snow on the ground and more coming. Hubby decided he was going to stay home from work as it appeared quite icy. Around 7 AM I called my work weather hotline and we were closed so I snuggled back in bed too. About 30 minutes later the dogs were ready to be up so we … Read More Quite the snow…

Preparing for the weather…

So supposedly we are going to get up to 3 feet of snow between 11 PM tonight and tomorrow sometime. I have yet to see a drop of rain they predicted we would have by now and the temperature is still in th upper 30’s. When hubby and I first heard of the storm we knew we had to do a few things to get … Read More Preparing for the weather…

Gluten- Free Mexican Lasagna

So as many of you know I find recipes and never follow them. I always change things to fit my style of cooking. I found a recipe for a mexican casserole and you put it together like a lasagna and I need it gluten-free so here is my version: You will need: 1/2 pound ground pork 1/2 pound ground beef 1 package of taco-seasoning (You … Read More Gluten- Free Mexican Lasagna

We lost one…

I know my blog is usually happy and I try to have a positive spin… but tonight I am sad as we just lost our first chicken. I am sure some of you remember last year I wrote about our girl who has “poopy butt”. With help from my blogging chicken neighbors I was able to nurse her back to health. Last week we … Read More We lost one…
