Sunny Thoughts

Today, since it is raining, since it is cloudy, and since I can’t be outside… I thought I would share a sunny day photo and sunny thoughts.What I most like about a sunny day is it makes you happy. The sun has a way of turning a bad mood around and helps you feel better. The sun is warm and feels nice on your … Read More Sunny Thoughts

Chicks First Adventure In Wide Open Spaces

The baby buffs had their first adventure with no fence yesterday. It was a day of possible wide open spaces for exploration. Still the baby buffs chose to stay close to home and explore smaller spaces.Their watchful and protective Chase was always close by to ensure no birds, other animals, or bigger chickens got to them.At times it seem the buffs weren’t sure if Chase … Read More Chicks First Adventure In Wide Open Spaces

Cow Licking Good

Funny things happen sometimes when you least expect it. While out on a walk with hubby and the dogs the other day we came across this field of cows grazing beside the woods we were walking in. This one cow seems very curious about our presence… He looked at us for the longest time…. The appeared disinterest turning his head away with a big … Read More Cow Licking Good

Happy Earth Day…

It is earth day… a day focused on how we can help keep the earth beautiful that God made so long ago. It is hard to imagine how beautiful and clean the earth was when God created it. It is saddening to think of all the damage humans have done to earth. It is good to know at least now we can do things … Read More Happy Earth Day…

Flower and Garden Festival

Yesterday my mom and step-father came up for the local Flower and Garden Festival held in a couple towns over from us. It was a sunny day, but again that old wind showed its cold breath. It was warmer when the wind was not blowing, but when Mr. Wind came around you needed a warm jacket and hat. Luckily the sunshine showed all day and … Read More Flower and Garden Festival

Working on a Sunny Day

It became a beautiful day today. This morning it was dreary and colder, but that sure changed. Slowly it started to warm up then all of a sudden I was told it got HOT. It was so nice when I got off work that hubby and I got a lot more done outside. Even the baby chicks got out again and the dogs got so hot in … Read More Working on a Sunny Day

Birdies

We had some visitors today… some cute birdies 🙂We didn’t have much time after work to sit and watch them as we had a lot to do, but I took a few minutes to see what they were up to. They were sharing the seed that was spilled on the ground. The bigger bird seemed to almost help the little ones find the bigger … Read More Birdies

Simple Sunday

It was another pretty yet cooler day… the sun was shining, the clouds were white and fluffy, and it was a good day for outside work. I know your not supposed to work on Sunday, but this work was for us and it was relaxing in some respects. We got some root vegetables put in the garden… the lawn got mowed (again)… the chicken … Read More Simple Sunday

Chicken Scratch

Today the rain that the weather man promised came… I couldn’t be upset about it though as it was good for the garden, the trees, and the land. It seems the grass shot up today and already needs mowing again. Hubby just mowed on Wednesday so he was not all that happy he needs to mow again two days later 😉  I didn’t mind … Read More Chicken Scratch

Chicken Check In

The big ladies have seemed to enjoy this nice weather too. I think some are loosing feathers to adjust to the heat. They tend to hang out “around the water hole” where there is a deck and bush for shade and a big bucket of water (we haven’t brought out the kiddy pool yet). That is hurt girl in the top of the photo  … Read More Chicken Check In

The Great Outdoors

The weather was perfect today 92* and there was a light breeze. Hubby and I moved some trees for the neighbor with our tractor. Then hubby changed the oil in the car while the one month old chicks got to go outside for the first time 🙂 We put up a little fence with a wire top so the hawks couldn’t get our babies. At first … Read More The Great Outdoors

Do you want more nature, chickens, dogs, barns, etc. I have been trying to post off of photos I have taken or stories I have in my head from the day. This seems to be working out, but you … Read More Duck… Duck… Goose
