A visitor to our little farm…

Today we had visitors to our little part of the earth. Our friend and my husbands second cousin came over with her two kids. Her daughter loves our dogs and chickens and was so excited to see them. She especially loved to feed them…                       She also wanted to play in the yard and … Read More A visitor to our little farm…

Chicken coop, dogs, and life…

Today was the first nice day I had to be outside and work. The chicken house got a cleaning and I finished the new boxes for “the girls” (my Dad was helpful in this process as he had a lot of good ideas). “The Girls” ran around like crazy enjoying the bugs and other goodies that they could get now that the rain had … Read More Chicken coop, dogs, and life…

Chickens and the rain…

I was cleaning our house today when I saw a funny sight… The chickens running in the yard in the rain…but not just running they seemed to be trying to dodge the raindrops, but then would stop and look up like they had been defeated. They would then give up and act as if it wasn’t raining at all pecking the ground. For some of them this … Read More Chickens and the rain…

Rainy day…

It’s raining today. I don’t always like rainy Saturday as it usually interferes with what I have to do and I get a major headache from them. Today I am ok with the rain as I need to clean house and get things back in order after our trip. I thought today would be a good one to share some more of my photos from … Read More Rainy day…

Dogs and chickens…

I am not really sure what our dogs first thought when the chickens were relocated to their yard home and were running around in the same space our pups spend time. Chase didn’t know if he should chase them, play with them, or run from them when they tried to peck him. Baxter on the other hand could care less he just wanted to … Read More Dogs and chickens…

Ice cream….

Today was an I need an ice cream day… It was my first day back to work from vacation… I had 123 e-mails, 20 some phone messages, and 15 sticky notes from co-workers with notes about my client’s on my desk. Plus I got some bad news about an old client that was sad. I also had a packed schedule that I had to fit the … Read More Ice cream….

A new coop…

I have been so busy since coming back from vacation. Today we spent most of the day building a new nesting place for our chickens (I’ll try to get a picture when we are done). Their old one is getting too small and since the new birds have started laying they need more room. We are extending their old coop to give them more … Read More A new coop…

Sunsets and Thankfulness…

              I love sunsets. There is something about the end of a day that God created special. It’s a time to reflect on the day and count your blessings. 10 Things I am thankful for today: 1. My faith 2. My husband               3. My pups             … Read More Sunsets and Thankfulness…

There is no place like Home…

I am sure when we all hear these words we think of The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy, and the yellow brick road. Today I thought of how true these words are for me coming home from our recent trip to Nebraska. I missed our dogs, chickens, my bed, and just being in my own space. I think the best part of being in your own … Read More There is no place like Home…

Vacation to Nebraska…

Hello All… I am sorry I have not been on in a week. My Grandmother turned 80 on Monday and my husband and I flew out to Nebraska to celebrate with her at a party my mother and her brother threw for her. It was such a busy trip that we are so glad to be home. We also missed our boys a lot… … Read More Vacation to Nebraska…

Brothers…

I was watching my pups today and again realized how much they act like brothers. The way they play, share, don’t share, and act… it’s almost human at times. My pups bring me such joy and love. It’s truly a blessing to have them in my life. I thought I would share this photo with you today as I took it recently while we … Read More Brothers…
