I love the weekend! I enjoy being home on the farm. I look forward to working on something each weekend – we never really know what Saturday will hold, but we know that there will be something to do. We make tentative plans, but sometimes the chickens laugh and say “nope!” and we do something else.Continue reading
We have a few projects… I know what you’re thinking. “You always say that!” That isn’t an untruth. But this time I want to talk about projects that Sue tackled by herself while I was gone. We all know that she’s made of tough stuff, so this really isn’t very surprising, but I was impressed because I had helped her some with the biggest one and it was tough with two, then she goes and does the lion’s share by herself (maybe that means I wasn’t really helping in the first place?).
We had snow, Sunday we’re expecting rain… but more and more and I am feeling it is project weather! You know that we always have projects. We’ve accomplished a few, started others, Rhiann completed one while she was here and then Trent finished another just this Monday.

We’ll never know and it’ll probably be filled in by tomorrow. Our projects today were a bit more specific.Continue reading
All right, all right, all right! I’ve talked about this a couple of times and the day is finally here. Are you just so excited??? Well, even if you’re not – we’re finally going to see the final product of our concrete planter number one.Continue reading
Sue is always up for a challenge, whatever needs to be done to make something work better, she’ll tackle it – even if its something she has never, ever tried before. Thankfully, we have amazing friends and neighbors who are often willing to lend a hand when the job needs another tackler (or two). Continue reading
We do a lot of odd things around here. I’ve mentioned several times that we must be an endless source of entertainment for our neighbors. One of the more fun but odd things we do is the coop shuffle. It happens periodically when we have chicks that need to move out of the brooder. Continue reading
