My Old Man

How many of you can you relate to this? You have animals all your life and then once you get to be an adult you get your first animal that is all yours. Its a great thing, until down the road when you start to look at pictures of them and realize… They are frosty old. Then it is very real… you have to … Read More My Old Man

Memories of September

Last September we were able to go to the lake for a little vacation with my folks. It was actually one of the most relaxing vacations since our honeymoon over 10 years ago. Our boys came. Our lab/healer mix wanted nothing to do with the water or boat. We barley got him on the double decker dock. Yet our terrier mix Chase absolutely loved everything … Read More Memories of September

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 Dogs on the Hunt

Our boys love to play in the snow especially when you are out with them. They love to run in any wide open space and find new places to explore. Our Chase is pretty intrigued when he is around any barn and is always trying to sniff out the critters. He is usually on high alert during these times not wanting to miss a … Read More Snow Dogs on the Hunt

Garden time… almost

This past week hubby and I were pretty busy. Hubby has been working for weeks to chop up a big tree we cut down for fire wood. We are trying to clean up the yard, get things shaped up in the chicken coop, planted a few flowers that have needed to be put in the ground for a while, and tilled the garden. The … Read More Garden time… almost

Time for Snow Fun…

Good morning…. Chase is ready for more snow fun today. He can’t wait to be out again today playing and having fun. (Who can resist this face that says “mommy let me play in the snow”) The plan is to finish inside chores and in between take snow breaks to let him run about and play. I am sure Baxter will join him some … Read More Time for Snow Fun…

First Snow…

We had our first snow… it was so pretty. It started last night and went through early this morning. After work today I took the boys out to play and enjoy the snow. Baxter has new boots as he is getting older and he gets colder quicker then he used to. At first he wasn’t sure of them, but then he got used to traipsing … Read More First Snow…

Twas the day before Christmas…Christmas Eve

Twas the day before Christmas my parents had arrived and we were busy baking, cooking, playing games, listening to Christmas music, and doing all sorts of Christmas activities. The boys were under our feet much of the day, but at one moment I noticed they weren’t. I guess they decided to go wait for Santa… I probably should tell them that Santa comes down the chimney not … Read More Twas the day before Christmas…Christmas Eve

Belated Labor Day…

Sorry this post is late USA, but I spent my Labor day with hubby and the boys hiking and spending good quality time together… We had one of the best hikes we have had had in a while. Beautiful scenery, not too hard of a hike where we couldn’t talk and enjoy the scenery, but hard enough we got a decent work out. The dogs … Read More Belated Labor Day…

Snow Dogs

Our boys love the snow. Especially Chase… Chase would stay out in the snow with us as long as we would let him. But usually we make him go in every so often as his poor paws gets caked with snow so we make him go in to warm up. In the 3 feet of snow we had a couple weeks ago it was a … Read More Snow Dogs

Chickens in the Snow

I had a comment about chickens in the snow on my last post that inspired me to share about my snow dare devils. I know most chickens will avoid the snow and not even think about going out in it. I have a couple of chickens who take the risks even in the 3 feet of snow they had to get out… And take a … Read More Chickens in the Snow

Beauty Filled Day

Our little piece of God’s land had some nice weather today and earlier this week. It was nice enough that the dogs laid in the yard and not in the shade of the porch. Baxter kept trying not to look at me when I was walking around checking on the chickens and snapping shots of him. He used to pose for me, but anymore … Read More Beauty Filled Day
