Laid Back Monday…

Had another little visitor today… such a pretty lady 🙂 Not much happened today…. hubby is still sick so I used the time he was sleeping to work outside after it cooled off. Chase watched me water the garden, the flowers, and clean the porch off. We had tacos for dinner and the lettuce, tomatoes, and onions came from our own garden. 🙂 I … Read More Laid Back Monday…

Survival of the Chickens

The chickens are surviving the heat as they survived the storm. They seem to be keeping cool by hiding under the bushes, digging in the dirt, and staying close to the pool drinking water… The heat must be getting to them though as I got the tiniest egg the other day… I want to crack it open and see if there is a tiny egg … Read More Survival of the Chickens

Heat, Humidity, and Awards

The temperature got up over 100* today and felt even higher with the humidity. I walked outside this morning at 7:30 AM and I was already sweating just letting the chickens out of the coop. I am glad I put fresh cold water in all the buckets and in the baby/doggie pool last night so the chickens all had fresh water today. What we really need … Read More Heat, Humidity, and Awards

Stop and Enjoy…

This afternoon would have been a great one for a boat ride…. A stroll in the park… A good day to stop and smell the roses… Or watch a new family take a swim… Here on our little neck of the woods we are enjoying sitting on our newly painted front porch, sipping tea, and watching the birds. The dogs are with us watching … Read More Stop and Enjoy…

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 … Read More Full Moon

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 … Read More Feeling Hot Hot Hot…

Monday… Monday… So good to me…

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 😉 ) … Read More Monday… Monday… So good to me…

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?

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. They use to all lay in on of the first boxes we built, but now only one or two lay there, and the others lay in the new back box we built in their new … Read More Festival Day… if it doesn’t rain

The wierd weather day…

Yesterday started out beautiful…                   Then it started to sleet (yes almost snow)… The chickens were not fond of this and ran to their coop to hide.             Then it was beautiful again… The chickens came out to eat.             Then it was windy and cold… … Read More The wierd weather day…
