Look what my husband brought home…

You will never guess what my husband brought home from the yard sale’s this weekend… We have never spent this much at a yard sale before…

Are you ready for this?

Three Farmall Tractors...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It appears he got a good deal and he and my Dad had decided to use them as projects they can do together. Any one want to buy a tractor??? They all run and start. The smallest is a Farmall Cub and has a woods mower on the bottom. We spent the afternoon mowing the back yard with the Cub, I am pretty sure my hubby and Dad want to keep this one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The dogs had a grand day as they got to ride to help us pick them up. The Farmall H (the biggest one) I had to drive back home from the guy hubby bought them from, while my Dad brought the other two home on a trailer I loaded them on to. The dogs ran all around the yard and made themselves tired.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So after Chase took a rest he spotted something and took off after it…

A fox in the field...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I didn’t know if I should call him back or let him give that fox a message our hens are not for his dinner…

At this time our chickens were enjoying a nice snack of grain in their coop oblivious of their protector Chase going after that fox...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We got him back, but not until after he had scared the fox off…

The sun set just as we got done with things and it was another beautiful one 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope y’all had a great weekend. Have a blessed week 🙂

Baby chick cookies

 

Every major holiday I make my great-grandmother’s secret recipe iced sugar cookies. My co-workers expect them and if I don’t make them I get asked for them. My co-workers like them they say due to the soft centers and sweet, but not too sweet icing. Each year I want to try to decorate them a little different. This year I wanted to do baby chicks in honor of our new hens. I was unsure how to easily make the cookie cutter I had into a chick… so I did some trials and asked my husband his opinion…

 

Options for decorating I didn't like as much...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So I tried some more… I know they are not the most amazing of decorated cookies, but I wanted a simple way to make a baby chick…

All the little chicks

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I had two ways my husband liked them so I did both and took them to work to see which one got the most votes with my coworker… It was almost a tie so I thought I would ask you…

My favorite two options
I call this the kissing chicks

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Which one do you think looks most like a baby chick? The one where the beak is highlighted or the one with just an eye?

 

Resurrection…

” But when they looked up they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. “Don’t be alarmed,” he said “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen!”” Mark 16: 4-6

Today was a beautiful day with a beautiful sunset…

 

 

 

 

 

 

We spent some time in the yard today helping my Dad fix some of his stuff, playing with the dogs, and watching the chickens do what they do best… eat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

My husband enjoyed some time on the tractor…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And I enjoyed taking photos, my husband says it has become part of my arm now. I loved the bottom of this tree so I thought I would share.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you had a beautiful and blessed easter 🙂

Sunsets and Thankfulness…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love sunsets. There is something about the end of a day that God created special. It’s a time to reflect on the day and count your blessings.
