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

Chase and Chicks

The baby chicks went out to play again today as it was warm and nice enough. Chase came out too as he has been really good with them inside, so we watched him around them outdoors. He is used to baby chicks as this isn’t our first rodeo with chicks, but we always watch the boys with them anyways. Today Chase showed he is … Read More Chase and Chicks

Snow to spring and back again …

That last eastern snow storm got us  Monday night into Tuesday. Since we knew it was coming our way we did prep work around our place. Secured the chickens and got a couple flock blocks set up plus extra water, covered up the tractors, moved the generator, and filled up the bird feeders as we like to provide a spot for the birds in … Read More Snow to spring and back again …

And back again…

I know I just posted about the looks of spring coming to our area. I was looking forward to some nicer weather and the wind to not be so much of a bother.

Wrangling…

Since we got our Christmas tree I have been trying to get all the boys in front of it at one time to get a picture. Usually the two boys will be laying in front of it… Or the cat… but not usually all three. But if they are all in the vicinity, by the time I get my camera, one of them is … Read More Wrangling…

Wrapping all the way…

Traditions are important to every person I know or have come into contact with. Our traditions usually come from our families, but once you get married you usually come up with some of your own. One tradition hubby and I do is try to have all our gifts bought by Thanksgiving or the week after and then have them wrapped by this time each … Read More Wrapping all the way…

Fall brings Thankfulness

We have one tree out by the road that always is so pretty when it changes colors. We love this tree as it signals fall and is just pretty to look at. It also reminds me that Thanksgiving is on it’s way and it helps me to remember what I am thankful for. Even when it seems thing aren’t going your way, things could … Read More Fall brings Thankfulness

Wish… Deferred?

Have you ever had a wish or do you have a wish… a wish that is so deep down in your heart that you are afraid to say it out loud? A wish that you have wanted so bad and long that you stop saying it out loud and keep it buried inside. Something you have prayed for and hoped for that it seems … Read More Wish… Deferred?
