Full Moon

Did you see the moon last night? It was so big and bright. I heard that tonight the moon will be the closest to the earth it gets. I hope you get to go out and see it.

 

I am off to clean house, make sure the chickens have a cool spot for the day, and make sure the dogs get a walk while it is still cool enough. I will be back tonight to let you know how things go.

Home Values and Love

The boys are trying to stay as cool as they can today. It tried to rain earlier, but that only made the humidity go up. I was out earlier this morning in the garden watering and checking on the plants. Things seem to be growing well. I wanted to water before it got too hot and caused all the water to evaporate.

When I got home the chickens were staying cool in the shade. (Aren’t “the girls” so cute ūüėČ )

I am in the mood for wadding… the river that runs through the battlefield we went to earlier in the week is calling my name…

This weekend promises to¬†be a busy one. Tomorrow I am going over to the elderly couples house we bought the tractors from (https://seasonsgirl.wordpress.com/2012/04/15/look-what-my-husband-brought-home/) to help them clean. They asked me if I could come over to help them clean house once a month as they are having difficulty keeping up. Then hubby and I have errands to run, house to clean (for Sunday),¬†and want to¬†take the pups for a walk. Sunday we have my husband’s best friend and his family coming over for lunch and to hang out.

I have been thinking lately more and more about if our home portrays the values and beliefs we have. When friends, family, and their kids come over¬†(we have had a lot of visitors over the last few months) do they see our belief in God, our love for others, and our love for each other. I am happy to say in most¬†areas we are doing well, but there is always room for improvement. I think you can make New Years resolutions¬†all year-long… so mine for the next few weeks is to see if there are ways I can create a warm, God valued filled, and healthy environment for those who come into our home.¬† Is there anything you do to create this in your home?

Thankfull Thursday…

Today I am grateful for my many blessings including my hubby and pups…

(Sorry today is a short post, I am tired after a very long day at work… pre Happy Friday.)

Feeling Hot Hot Hot…

Its HOT here today… a nice change from the cold wet weather.¬† I feel more motivated to get out and do things in nice weather and I am happy for my garden vegetables too as the warmer weather seems to make them grow tall. On our walk the other day through the battlefields I saw some really old pumps. I always see things like this as art. The above pump I really liked and I thought the orange background was so vibrant against the old pump. I also saw the below pump and liked it against the green grass.

The chickens are enjoying the warmer weather and trying to get into my garden…¬†tough luck chickens my fence should keep¬†them out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Its hot enough the boys are inside enjoying the fan and a late afternoon nap… they are my cuties ūüôā

Dinner is chicken and the fixings and then I have to catch up on my reading… I have a pile of magazines two feet tall, no joke, and I want to clean out some clutter. Happy hump day…¬† I hope you were blessed ūüôā

P.S. Anyone want to take a stab at who sang the song that is my title today?

Monday… Monday… So good to me…

Chase and Baxter

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 ūüėČ ) We had some visitors yesterday, my friend and her two kids, who came to see the dogs and chickens. The kids had never seen chickens like this before and my poor girls paid for this¬†as they were getting¬†picked up, petted, and taken back to their coop a lot. I had to explain to the kids to be careful and that¬†the chickens wouldn’t lay again even if they¬†were placed back in their coop. The girls survived and got lots of good treats today¬†for being so good.

While they were here though part of the coop was messed up so it needs a little repair today. So¬†Hubby and I are off to complete this task before dinner… tonight is spaghetti¬†and¬†meatballs…¬†I make the¬†sauce and meatballs from scratch.

Quiz for the day… Who sang the song in my title?

Hikes and Battlefields…

It was such a nice day, perfect weather for a hike. We went to a local battlefield and hiked all over that place. The dogs were in heaven… they LOVE to hike and walk.

 

 

 

 

 

 

My wonderful hubby carried my camera backpack so I coud have both my lenses at hand and it also allowed us to carry water and such.

When we first got to the battlefield there were some painters their painting a pond…

In the pond was a goose swimming, it almost looked as if he was posing for the painters.

A little further up the way and in the river there were two families of geese… Mom, Dad, and babies.

The fields had beautiful flowers in them today all in full bloom.

Then we went from the fields and river to the mountain. There were so many planes today…

The pups took a rest when we got back from the mountain on one of the old house steps.

On the way out of the battlefield we saw a bird we have a difference of opinion on what it was… any ideas?

I hope you all had a beautiful weekend with lots of fun and beautiful weather. Have a blessed week ūüôā

The very bland morning…

It’s a¬†still and very bland day… you know¬†one of those days where there is no color in the sky and the sun is nowhere to¬†be seen. It¬†isn’t raining, it isn’t windy, it is just still. The chickens don’t seem happy about this type of day. They are out, but seem more skittish, especially after Chase had to scare away a bird that was getting a little too close. The dogs are snoring on their chair, yet are easily awakened by noise.

Since there is not much to share yet today I wanted to pass along some House Rules we found on a tapestry and have hanging in our house. I hope you have a good Saturday.

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 (I’m sorry to say I forgot who it was – if it’s you let me know) the lady writing it was sharing her black dog loved to lay in the sun…

We have one of those...

My wonderful hubby finished weed eating the fence line… it looks good now.

The only problem today again was the wind. It blew all night and knocked things over. Today it is making sure it tries its hardest to blow the leaves off the trees in surprise attacks.

I worked in the garden and placed my new wire trellis I got to let my cucumbers climb on this year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My onions are coming up and I am so excited to see the fruits of my labor starting to grow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am so looking forward to the weather staying nice and being able to put the rest of my plants in so they can grow big.

 

Baxter and Chase wanted to wish all my followers, readers, and visitors a Happy Weekend !

P.S. Anyone know what song and from what show my blog title came from today?

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 up the chicken coop, and playing with the pups. Over all it was a… good day sunshine ūüėČ
