MIA to Fun

It has been a while since I have been on here. With such a rainy last year plus so many things we had to do… that doesn’t leave a lot of time for fun or taking pictures. This past week has been different. I got the chance to finally go somewhere and have some fun… Recognize these guys? My mom and I got to … Read More MIA to Fun

Sweet Sleepy Grayson

This is my sweet kitty last CHRISTmas time. He loved to snuggle and sleep on the CHRISTmas blanket by the tree. We have had a hard time finding a tree this year. Our normal tree place doesn’t open till the 1st and our tradition has always been to get our tree the day after thanksgiving (any one else do this?). But this year hubby was working … Read More Sweet Sleepy Grayson

Late Summer Update

Our little piece of God’s earth is trying to keep up with the change in weather from bouts of rain to dry humid heat. The grass is good when we get some rain and the chickens love all the bugs… The birds are still having babies and one mom has taken over our smaller birdhouse… Inside I am trying to keep up with the … Read More Late Summer Update

A look back cat

I was going though some old pictures last night and came across ones of baby Grayson… He had his 3rd birthday this month and I can’t believe he used to be this small… Any could fit in one of my hands when we first got him… He was such a small and snuggly little baby… And he has grown to be a long lean … Read More A look back cat

Summer grass

I am so glad that the summer grass has come in and the chickens have plenty of fresh, green, healthy, grass to forage in. Happy chickens=healthy chickens=good eggs 😉

Happy Happy Chickens!

The grass is back, the tress are coming out, the flowers are blooming, and the chickens are happy. Yet its either hot and humid or were having thunder storms and tornado warnings… I am not sure what season to call this, its not spring, or summer… I think I will just call it crazy!

Back to business…

The snow is starting to melt and the girls are enjoying getting back out to forage They are enjoying being out in the parts of the yard that are free from snow And finding bugs that are coming out now that the snow is melting I am happier because I am getting more eggs They are much happier now that they can be out … Read More Back to business…

First Day of Spring… I think NOT

So “they” say yesterday was the first official day of spring. Well at our place yesterday and today looked something like this… Not that I am complaining as it was the only good snow we actually got this whole winter. Hubby and I were both home, no thanks to my county job. They were too cheap to let us off in a foot of snow … Read More First Day of Spring… I think NOT

Thoughts and Prayers

My families thoughts and prayers continue to be with those in Texas and Louisiana affected by the hurricane. We have also added the people of Florida to this list. I have family down there including my dad who is on his way back up here. As some of you know who have been following my blog for a while, my dad is paralyzed from below the … Read More Thoughts and Prayers

Flowers and Fun

Been a busy week around our place. Chickens are happy and hopefully laying more on a more regular basis. The dogs and cat are happy with more sun than rain. Flowers were enjoying the rain and are blooming like crazy now in the sun. Got a fun comment on my last post from the UK, its neat to learn about other areas of the … Read More Flowers and Fun

Little eggs Big eggs

Two of our middle chicks are laying and their eggs are still small and cute. Here are the first 8 baby eggs… we have gotten a few more since this. To show you the difference from our older girls here is a comparison. The eggs in the back of the carton are the older girls and the ones in the front and in front … Read More Little eggs Big eggs

Hens and Hay

We put new hay in the coop the other day… Our girls go crazy for new hay in their coop… This white one kept looking at me like “thanks lady for the hay”… I sat down in the hay with them for a while… Some of them dig down though the hay and all you see is tails in the air 😉 This was … Read More Hens and Hay
