The grass is back, the tress are coming out, the flowers are blooming, and the chickens are happy. Yet its either hot and humid or were having thunder storms and tornado warnings… I am not sure what season to call this, its not spring, or summer… I think I will just call it crazy!
My families thoughts and prayers continue to be with those in Texas and Louisiana affected by the hurricane. We have also added the people of Florida to this list. I have family down there including my dad who is on his way back up here. As some of you know who have been following my blog for a while, my dad is paralyzed from below the … Read More Thoughts and Prayers
Prayers being sent to the people of Texas who have been affected by this terrible flooding… Praying you are safe and if you have family down there that your family is safe. And thank you to all those who are able to go down and are there helping in any way they can. Praying for your safety as well.
Our youngest chicks are now a month old and we have taken them out a couple times into the yard in a protected area for some grass play time when it is warm enough. Their play time was cut short today by a thunderstorm, but they seemed to enjoy the time they had. They had been playing out of their pen under a heat … Read More Baby Chicks Days Out
That last eastern snow storm got us Monday night into Tuesday. Since we knew it was coming our way we did prep work around our place. Secured the chickens and got a couple flock blocks set up plus extra water, covered up the tractors, moved the generator, and filled up the bird feeders as we like to provide a spot for the birds in … Read More Snow to spring and back again …

There were blooms and buds everywhere… Pretty little flowers… Of many colors… Buds pushing through for daffodils… So many flowers coming through the ground… The chickens were … Read More I Spy… Spring
It must be at least getting a little close to spring (or it may be wishful thinking)…. but everywhere we went today there were baby animals running about… It may just me willing spring here and using these babes as my proof… Either way they are all cute when they are little 🙂 It was just nice to have a couple nice days of … Read More Babies, babes, everywhere…
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…
It is so hot again… so hot I want to crawl into an ice bath. On top of the heat our AC went out yesterday and it’s not fixed yet. To keep cool we have al the fans going, extra floor fans on, were going for rides with the boys in the car with the AC going, and opening widows around the house where … Read More Heat Wave… hopefully waving bye bye
There are many things you can say about snow… its cold, its wet, its messy, its too deep, its too hard to see when it gets going good… You could say all these things, but why not also see the positives? Why not see the beauty? In our recent 3 feet of snow I could have seen many negatives and at times I think the biggest … Read More Best Part of Snow
Our birds have been enjoying our bird feeders that hubby has been trying to keep full. They have been on the feeders and under them where they had dropped some of the seeds. We have had different kinds of birds, but mostly these small little birds and robins. They also have been under some of the trees I think eating berries and things that … Read More Birds in the Snow
Weather man said we may get more snow tonight and tomorrow… we still have snow from the last 3 feet. I know that’s not a lot compared to what some other Midwest states and other places get, but it’s a lot for us. Anyways, the new snow forecast reminded me I promised to share more snow pictures with you from the last snow so … Read More More Snow?
