Growing and Changing Spaces

Our baby chick’s are officially out in the coop with the big girls. They have their own space in the coop and are protected from the big girls,  but can see, hear,  and somewhat interact with each other. Before the big move the coop was cleaned and the babies spent some more time outside.  This was the closest the babies have been to the … Read More Growing and Changing Spaces

French Fries Hash

I know sounds weird right?? This morning I didn’t know what I wanted to make for a Sunday breakfast. Hubby had a can of corned beef and I had some left over fries from dinner Friday and this dish was born. I rarely have left over fries, but I did today. Actually you could use any left over potatoes, but let’s stick with the … Read More French Fries Hash

Pan Pizza

Have you ever cooked your pizza in a cast iron skillet? I had a couple times in the past, but was also using my pizza stone. But no more… I made my homemade crust and topped it with goodies a couple days ago and got the best almost deep dish pizza… It was thick and crunchy on the outside and soft in the inside. … Read More Pan Pizza

To become a coffee person…

I’ve never been a coffee drinker. My parents never drank it growing up and I never had much exposure to trying it. When I did it wasn’t for me. But I’ve always enjoyed the smell of coffee. How each kind of coffee has the basic same base but the aromas are different. My husband has always been a coffee drinker. He’s the first person … Read More To become a coffee person…

The Trees…

I thought I would share with you some of the trees that are blooming in our yard now. The road we live on has a few beautiful trees on it, but people always seem to stop out from our house and take pictures of our trees every year. Our fullest tree is this cherry blossom… we love the color and abundance of the blossoms. … Read More The Trees…

A good day to drive…

We love to take Saturday drives. We sometimes only go a little ways away and other times we go a few hours away. We find a new town we like to visit now about an hour from our house. The boys love to ride with us and we always find a park to walk them in. Chase loves to ride like the picture above. … Read More A good day to drive…

Remember or learn about it…20 yrs later

I can remember where I was and what the days, weeks, and months were like after. I still have an emotional reaction when I really think about this time. I pray for these families that were forever affected. Its sad to me so many kids and young people I talk to today don’t know what this day is, or what happened, and are so … Read More Remember or learn about it…20 yrs later

Picking Time

I love the late spring, summer, and fall for a reason… growing and harvesting fresh produce. Whether it is in our own garden or going to support a small farm. While not everyone can do this we feel blessed we can. Yesterday we took a day trip to a new farm to pick peaches, nectarines, and apples. We visited Baugher’s in Westminster, MD. They … Read More Picking Time
