Woodland Friends

While on my trip I came across some woodland friends… I remember seeing the movie Bambi for the first time. I can remember most of my first experiences with Disney movies and I bet most of you can as well. You can remember the characters, what you felt, and what your impression was of the movies as a child. Funny when you watch them … Read More Woodland Friends

Late Summer Update

Our little piece of God’s earth is trying to keep up with the change in weather from bouts of rain to dry humid heat. The grass is good when we get some rain and the chickens love all the bugs… The birds are still having babies and one mom has taken over our smaller birdhouse… Inside I am trying to keep up with the … Read More Late Summer Update

Hens and Hay

We put new hay in the coop the other day… Our girls go crazy for new hay in their coop… This white one kept looking at me like “thanks lady for the hay”… I sat down in the hay with them for a while… Some of them dig down though the hay and all you see is tails in the air 😉 This was … Read More Hens and Hay

So humid… animals not happy… people not happy either

The last 3 days it has been so humid that when I go out to take care of the animal or work in the garden I come back in looking like I just stepped out of the shower. The chickens are lazy and not laying eggs much. The dogs are lazy inside… Not the dog days of summer because the dogs don’t like the … Read More So humid… animals not happy… people not happy either

Then and Now

I thought I would share the photos of the two new sets of birds we got this year. I have been looking back at them over the last few months. Remember these 4? Then they grew some… This is them now 🙂 All incorporated into the big flock. They are still learning the ropes and finding their place, but they have been out for the … Read More Then and Now

Chick Adventures

The baby chicks have been getting out more now that it is warm enough and are learning many new things. Sometimes they learn together… And other times one or two will get brave and venture a little further solo before running back to the group… But they are never to far from me yet… Because Chase will herd them back if they do go … Read More Chick Adventures

Snow Dogs on the Hunt

Our boys love to play in the snow especially when you are out with them. They love to run in any wide open space and find new places to explore. Our Chase is pretty intrigued when he is around any barn and is always trying to sniff out the critters. He is usually on high alert during these times not wanting to miss a … Read More Snow Dogs on the Hunt

Time for Snow Fun…

Good morning…. Chase is ready for more snow fun today. He can’t wait to be out again today playing and having fun. (Who can resist this face that says “mommy let me play in the snow”) The plan is to finish inside chores and in between take snow breaks to let him run about and play. I am sure Baxter will join him some … Read More Time for Snow Fun…

First Snow…

We had our first snow… it was so pretty. It started last night and went through early this morning. After work today I took the boys out to play and enjoy the snow. Baxter has new boots as he is getting older and he gets colder quicker then he used to. At first he wasn’t sure of them, but then he got used to traipsing … Read More First Snow…

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?
