Ready For Spring

We had a few good days of beautiful weather… then the rain, wind, and cold came back. It was so nice to be able to go out with the boys (dogs) during this time for almost daily walks. They have loved it and I have been feeling better being able to get out walking more. Baxter is getting hip dysplasia so we can’t go … Read More Ready For Spring

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

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

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. But today I woke up to this… snow, cold, wind 😦 The ground, deck, and all were covered.   I guess old man winter is not ready to let go just yet. I … Read More And back again…

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?

Flowers and Gardens

While we were on our overnight anniversary trip we went to a botanical gardens. The outside path was lined with gardens with pretty flower spinners. It was a pretty place and a lot of indoor displays, more then I had seen in other gardens like this. Some had things in them. Other’s were mostly flowers. The had ones for kids. (you know I loved … Read More Flowers and Gardens

Praying

Every time I hear of another terror attack, school shooting, shooting at a theater, music hall, or other place my heart gets sad. I just can’t stand the evil that’s out there. Right now I chose to join with those that are praying for Paris and I continue to pray for every person affected by any of these kind of events.  

Encourage

I found a Bible verse the other day that was very encouraging and I thought I would share it with you today: 2 Samuel 22:31 –  As for God, his way is perfect, the word of the Lord proves true, he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him. I hope it encourages you today and helps you get though the end of your … Read More Encourage

Chicken sick… poor girl

We have a sick chicken. I tried what the feed store lady suggested and only minimal improvement. The poor girl 😦 About a week ago I noticed her crown had slumped over and she was not as peppy. When I picked her up she was skinny and when I watched her I noticed her potty was runny. The feed store lady suggested goat dewormer and … Read More Chicken sick… poor girl
