Thursdays Ten Blessings…

I am blessed this week for many reasons. For starters Chase is doing well with his swimming lessons and really learning how to navigate the deeper water. Second, Baxter has moved from adolescents and into young adulthood as he is listening better and following directives from all family members. Third, my client’s have not been too bad this week allowing me some time to get … Read More Thursdays Ten Blessings…

Peach Shortcakes (gluten-free)

For 4th of July I tried something new… Since I am gluten -free I am always looking for ways to turn deserts gluten-free. Since strawberry shortcakes and peach cobbler are popular on holidays I combined them to make peach shortcakes. I had peaches and had found gluten- free Bisquick mix. This was an easy thing to do… so I cut up the peaches and … Read More Peach Shortcakes (gluten-free)

Tips and Chicks Monday

We got some more rain yesterday, thankfully without a storm or wind. The garden and the flowers all seemed to enjoy the rain. The chickens also didn’t seem to mind as it cooled things of a bit. One of our “girls” seemed to know the rain was coming as she ran and hid under the bush as soon as she heard the thunder then when it was … Read More Tips and Chicks Monday

Survival of the Chickens

The chickens are surviving the heat as they survived the storm. They seem to be keeping cool by hiding under the bushes, digging in the dirt, and staying close to the pool drinking water… The heat must be getting to them though as I got the tiniest egg the other day… I want to crack it open and see if there is a tiny egg … Read More Survival of the Chickens

Watermelon Chicken

Today was a good day once my migraine went away. I went this morning for a hike with my friend, her dogs, and my dogs. We went along a trail that follows this good size stream that ends in a waterfall. The dogs had a great time and it helped Chase get a little more confident in the water as my friends dog’s love … Read More Watermelon Chicken

Peek-A-Boo and Proposals

The girls were playing a game today of what appeared to be peek-a-boo with the sun. As the sun came out and got hotter they ran under trees or the shade of the coop, then when the sun would hide behind a cloud they would run out and peck for goodies. They especially loved to peck around where I cleaned and emptied out the baby pool the dogs … Read More Peek-A-Boo and Proposals

Monday… Monday… So good to me…

It’s the start to a new week. I thought I would share this photo with you from our hike yesterday. The boys told me they wanted to go back today, but the weather is not cooperating. The sun came out briefly and the chickens were ready to use this to their full advantage. (Sorry I think the chicken tail pictures are funny and cute 😉 ) … Read More Monday… Monday… So good to me…

Sunny day… Chasing the clouds away

Today was another sunny day! We had to take advantage of it as Mr. Weatherman says it’s going to rain all day tomorrow. The chickens discovered today one of our fence posts had come loose and they showed us they know how to try to get out… that’s fixed now.             I was reading a post the other day … Read More Sunny day… Chasing the clouds away
