The sun came out :)

The sun was out in full force today. It was such a beautiful day I was so eager to get home and into the yard. The dogs spent the day laying in the sun and playing. The chickens were all over the yard and sunning themselves.     Hubby spent time mowing the grass and weed eating. I spent time in the garden, cleaning … Read More The sun came out đź™‚

Was the weather man right?

One of my favorite flowers is the Gerber daisy. I love the colors, the design, and how they grow. Now I enjoy daisy’s in general, but this has to be my favorite variety. It’s almost like a sunshine (which I also enjoy). Which brings me to today… my motto worked the sun came out and was out all day. Over the weekend the weather … Read More Was the weather man right?

Whats a girl to do?

The weather man says this rain is supposed to break tomorrow… thank goodness… it is WET here. The chickens have been kept in their run until this afternoon when it went from torrential down pour to light sprinkles.

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.

Windy day business…

It was another beautiful, but windy day here in our area.             The wind would blow so hard at times you thought you would fall over and then it would stop for a while.                 The dogs enjoyed time in the yard while I worked in the garden a little. I put … Read More Windy day business…

10 Reasons I LOVE chickens

Today was a beautiful Virginia day 🙂 The sun was shining, it was warm (but not hot), my husband was out mowing the lawn, the chickens were out pecking at the grass clippings, and the dogs were playing.

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…
