Here we are. The end of another decade; unbelievable. This particular evening finds us both rather under the weather- Sue more so than – so we are home watching a marathon of Mission Impossible movies. It started raining, out of the blue this evening, so we’re pretty well in for the night – after we tuck in the chickens anyway. We’ll probably be in bed by 9pm, so we’re wishing you a happy new year right now! Continue reading
Hello. I hope your Christmas was wonderful. We started out with breakfast with Sue’s Son’s family. Got some cute photos of Irie opening presents. I didn’t blog on Thursday because I was studying for a final on Friday (which I passed, FYI). We’ve had some cold, cold days. Yesterday we had snow, which was beautiful coming down in the morning. Our first inkling was when SweetPea, the German Shepherd, came back in with snowflakes all over her back. It was still quite dark and we couldn’t see past the porch. As it began to lighten, it was obvious it had been snowing for some time. Continue reading
Blessings to you!

…they’re off! Or maybe it should be “in”. Sue has started the incubation of six goose eggs. As this is the first time we’ve ever done anything like this, it is a bit nerve wracking. Several things to remember to take care of… also had to find a place to set up the incubator. So here’s what we’re doing. Continue reading
We’ve had some amazingly low temperatures the last few days. Yesterday was the coldest by far 29°, if I remember correctly. We warmed up a couple of degrees today. I’m talking about morning temperatures. Today we warmed up into the high 60’s! The next few days will remain a bit cold and then Christmas eve we’re in for a bit of rain… maybe snow if it doesn’t get too warm. The cold gives us some issues that we hadn’t really thought about before. Continue reading
Yes, today is Sunday. Yes, we usually don’t post at all on Sundays. I know; it’s unexpected. Unexpected has rather been our watch word lately. When I was searching for the title image, I kept running across images that said “Expect the unexpected”. How does one do that? if you expect it, then it is no longer unexpected. Am I right? I much preferred the phrase that our Pastor used today in the title of his Message, “Unexpect the Expected”. I think God has been quietly and repeatedly trying to teach us this on the farm, lately.

It’s been a long time since I’ve been in this particular spot. I have hit a block wall this week. Generally I can work through it and come up with something to write about, but if you could see into my brain, you would see something that looks exactly like the photo at the left. We’ve kind of been hunkering down for the winter and the holidays. Busy with so many things, but feeling like we’re running around in circles. We’ve been enjoying amazing sunrises and sunsets and have tried to share them with you on our Facebook page, and some here. I’m afraid, all I have for you are photos. Continue reading
Ok, I’ve been on hiatus since Thanksgiving… I know, sorry about that. Some things went on, plus other stuff took my attention. Back now – as much as I ever am. Still, this is going to be a relatively short post, just to share a few photos and such. We’ll go down the days until we get back to present. Continue reading
