Chicken update…

READ MORE

It’s a broody world here.  I think I have “advanced” chickens.  LOL  My babies (read that as my first two chickens are only 9 months old and already my charming snarky rooster, Atticus, has started molting.  It is my understanding that this is usually supposed to occur the first time around 1 year.  Guess I […]

The "Village Idiot" strikes again…

READ MORE

Sometimes I think my son’s dog’s mission is to increase my patience level. Look ~ doesn’t he just look all sweet and cuddly there in my son’s lap?  I see the mischievousness in his eyes because I know it’s there, but do you?  Does he have you fooled?  Whatever you do, do not trust that […]

Trust in the Lord in friendships…

READ MORE

I should really be working on my Bible study right now, but I feel compelled. Compelled to share some thoughts on Christian friendships. I feel that the Lord is pressing on my heart to share these thoughts, and I pray that there is someone out there right now who will be blessed and encourage by […]

I agree completely…

READ MORE

I am not the #1 fan of technology, not by any stretch of the imagination.  I prefer a paper, bound book over an electronic one any day.  Yet, I understand why electronic is becoming a necessary “evil”.  In my case, several books I want to read, but am unwilling to pay $15 – $20 for […]

I was asked to share all 50 of the goals I have for 2012 around our little homestead.  Well, how about nearly all of them (trust me, there are some you really don’t want to know 🙂 ).  So, here they are in no particular order, although I do have them categorized out on a […]

Dear Lord, I thank You for all of the wonderfulness of You this past year.  As myself, and many others, have faced trials and tribulations, You have always been there; strengthening us, guiding us, protecting us, […]

My stalker…

READ MORE

Yesterday, I was going about my morning when I realized I was being followed… again. I stopped at my counter in the kitchen and pulled out the camera, quietly leaned around towards the staircase and caught the stalker red-handed. I went to “Judge” Oak Tree and demanded a restraining order be issued and he just […]

Chickens in the garden…

READ MORE

Today was gorgeous!!  And my Oak Tree and Opulent decided to start working on putting the garden to bed.  Our sweet brood, Gem, Atticus, and Calpurnia/Calpurnio (we don’t know which yet) needed some outdoors time.  Since we don’t have a run for them yet (a project for next Spring), we decided to let them run […]

I'm really trying to retract my claws…

READ MORE

my Mama bear claws that is. Can I tell you something? I really, really, really do not like this whole letting go thing.  So what if he’s 18 years old.  So what if he’s an adult with real life responsibilities.  So what if he is handling nasty situations with amazing grace, dignity and honor. He’s […]
