Happy Day :)

The boys wanted to say Happy Thursday 🙂 The chickens tried to escape the coop this morning as the wind caught their door and gave them an escape route… but we corralled them all and they are now back in the safety of their run. Us humans are off to work 🙂

A day for the birds…

Today is sunny and bright… the flowers survived the winds and the chickens are out in the yard looking for food. The only problem is we were under a freeze warning last night and it is COLD today… Hopefully it will warm up so the dogs will go out and play. It would be a nice day to bundle up and go for a … Read More A day for the birds…

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…

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…

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…

Last Day of Vacation…

Today we spent some of our last day of vacation in the… Town of Sharpsburg We went over to Antietam Battle Field to walk the dogs…             We go to the battle field from time to time to walk the dogs and relax. Chase always has a good time watching mommy take pictures…             … Read More Last Day of Vacation…

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…

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…

Roy Rogers and Horses

Today I was walking through the living room cleaning and saw my husband had Roy Rogers on the TV. Now I don’t think he knew what he was watching as he was asleep. I remember as a kid watching reruns and wanting to ride a horse like Roy. Now if you know anything about Roy you know he has a trusty horse Trigger and of coarse a dog … Read More Roy Rogers and Horses

First Post

I am sitting in my basement tonight writing this first post. I just finished locking the chickens in their coop for the night and my little dog Chase is always happy to help. The fire is blazing on this cold Virginia night as the wind whips around our house. It seems the last year the wind has been really bad in our neck of … Read More First Post
