Our life is one of fun, but hard work on our hobby farm. Horses, chickens, dogs, cats, ducks, guineas, pigs, and many other animals can reside here and we love every minute of it! This blog will be a variety of things as well as my thoughts on current events.
Happy Homemaker Monday - Dec. 16 - On The Farm
Well I am missed writing this one since it is getting late and I have been busy! I really don't know where the day has gone, but I will attempt to get this written today and I will hopefully, be able to do another post tomorrow. I have a lot to share, but I will just get to the post now.
Writing this post and listening to my husband's stupid YouTube videos that he is watching. I have the television on a Hallmark movie, but can't hear it because of his phone. I hate my computer being in the dining room, when he is home at least.
On The Breakfast Plate...
Today was smoked sausage and French toast. It was quite delicious!
The Weather _ Outside My Window...
Nasty! It snowed last night and then we had freezing rain and more snow today. It is dark so I can't tell if it is snowing now or not. We are supposed to get another 2-4 inches tonight.
On The Reading Pile...
I am still not finished with my Christmas book as I have just been too busy. I have been doing other things, but I will finish it.
On The Menu This Week...
Monday - Beef Stew and Cornbread
Tuesday - Low Carb Cheeseburger Soup
Wednesday - Grilled Chicken with Basil Garlic Seasoning, Oven Roasted Potatoes, Green Beans
Thursday - Cheeseburgers and Fries

In The Craft Basket...
I am going to be working on some doll clothes for my grand doll. She likes to lose her Barbie clothes and so I am going to make some.
Looking Forward To...
Finishing up the Christmas shopping and enjoying some evenings of going to see Christmas lights and other fun things. I need to get my grand doll to see Santa this week if possible.
From The Camera ...
Our view outside the back window this morning. I love this pine tree in the winter time just because it makes for beautiful pictures!
An end to useless violence
Health and Happiness in the new year
Lots happening here and I will share more photos tomorrow as well as more farm news with all of you!
As I was looking through my posts today, I see that I have failed my readers. Many of you were aware that my other daughter was pregnant and going to deliver in July, I am sure those of you that knew are wondering why I never posted about that and I must say that life has just gotten in the way, and I thought that I had written a post. Since I know I did not, I will now! He came when Mamaw was out of town! Can you believe that? He actually had the nerve to do something so ridiculous as to come while I was at the Pink Zebra reunion (our annual conference). I was with four of my best friends when we got the announcement that he was here! I was so happy that I was able to share that news with them before anyone else. Of course, the leaders of the company were there and anxious to hear how she was doing as well. Deliver went fairly smooth, but she was in labor for quite a while. I am not sure on hours, but I think about 6 hours. There were some issues with my daughter following delivery
Good snowy, cold Monday morning! The past week has been a challenge to so many across the United States struggling with this massive winter storm that brought artic temperatures with it. I know many have struggled to keep warm and deal with frozen pipes. Even in areas that are accustomed to snow and cold, this brutal bout of cold has been difficult. :::::The Weather:::: We have already discussed the weather, but our next few days are looking better. Tomorrow we should be above freezing for the first time since Thursday and in the mid 50's by the weekend. The weather man is saying that the warmer air is coming, but so is the rain.
Yesterday and today have been very cool days here on the farm and I must say that something that we don't recognize has been falling from the sky. It is wet and seems to be hanging around. IT is certainly what the ground needed as it seems to have soaked it up almost immediately. Rain, glorious rain!! The ducks are loving their pool and the rain, but I truly don't think that they are liking the cooler temperatures so much. I know I am not. I don't mind cool, but wearing my sweatshirt in June is not fun. The white turkeys are enjoying the coop that my husband put together for them. We have 5 of them and two others. We won't be keeping all of the toms as we have too many. Nesting boxes made of milk crates that we had lying around work well attached to the back wall. Here is Tom. He is such a great boy, but he likes to show off. He gets along well with the chickens. These are my Old English chickens. I like them as they are small and will never get much bigger. I actu
