Soggy Sunday after Sunny Saturday…

It started raining shortly after we got done at the Flower and Garden festival my Mom and I went to yesterday. It was so sunny and beautiful the entire time we were at the show and I had to sing a little praise to God for holding off the rain till after we got to see the whole festival. I got so many good shots … Read More Soggy Sunday after Sunny Saturday…

Festival Day… if it doesn’t rain

Today the sun is trying hard to stay out from behind the clouds… The chickens are enjoying some grub in and out of the coop while they take turns laying. They use to all lay in on of the first boxes we built, but now only one or two lay there, and the others lay in the new back box we built in their new … Read More Festival Day… if it doesn’t rain

Oh what a beautiful day…

Anyone know what musical this little song line comes from??? It has turned into a beautiful day today. The tulips have opened, the dogs are sunning, and the chickens are out and about (or laying). I opened all the windows to air out the house and spent some time after work sweeping up the floors of the house. I thought I would share some … Read More Oh what a beautiful day…

Light, flowers, and such

Yesterday I found a new color tulip in our yard. I don’t remember it in the past and I had not seen it yet this year. This yellow tulip was growing on the side of the house that gets the least sun in the day, but I tried to wait untill it had some sun before I took this.           … Read More Light, flowers, and such

Unique view…

So I thought I would talk today about encouraging a unique view to life. We are all different and have different views, likes, dislikes, wants, needs, etc.I thought with the weekend coming up we could all think of something unique to do that would be out of the ordinary from what we usually do or what someone else would usually do. This weekend I am … Read More Unique view…

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…

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…

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…
