So Tired of sNOOOw!

Yes, I’m going to discuss the weather. If you’ve watched the news lately, you’ve noticed that it’s been snowing a bit here on the east coast. And by “a bit” I really mean WAY TOO MUCH.  We’ve had 2 big storms and lots of flurry days. I just feel sorry for our chickens. Normally they get to go out in their yard, but with...

BIG News!

So after much thought, prayers and consideration, Paul and I have decided that we’re going to adopt! We don’t feel our family is complete quite yet and trying-to-conceive hasn’t worked out. We’re in the process of picking an agency and we’re just hoping and praying we get accepted and can be on-the-way through the process soon. It’ll take a while, a “hurry up and...

What a Week!!

A week ago (on Sunday) I found out my best friend’s mom had passed away from cancer. The funeral was to be held in Utah and I knew I had to go.  So Tuesday (at 3am) I left for Utah.  My bff and I have been friends since we were 6…I’m not gonna do the math, but it’s been a long time…almost our whole...

And On to the Next!

Thanksgiving went well at our house. My sister, bil, and their 2 kiddos were a fun addition to our home this year.  Turkey thawed out and was the best one I’ve ever had, thanks to my sis and bil. So now we’ve got the tree up and decorated, the Christmas decos out, and about half of the presents wrapped and under the tree. Pierce...

Turkey Day Countdown!

One of my brothers contacted me on FB saying there was nothing new here…Now, sisters and parents are one thing…but when my BROTHERS complain, it’s another ballgame. 😛 So far, life is still good. Our Easter Egger chickens are slowly producing their green eggs, and one of the “she” birds turned out to be a “he” bird, so now we have a rooster. Before...

No, I’m Not Dead.

I’m alive and well. Just have a new addiction. Facebook, still. *sigh*  I only have so many minutes a day to be on the computer and it all goes to keeping crops, fish, and pets alive! It’s disturbing how a fake corn crop trumps a real blog. It’s been a busy summer….chickens, gardens, parties , bbq’s and vacation…now back to school and soccer for...

What to Do When Retired

More Boortz: Parking Ticket Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well, for example, the other day my wife and I went into town and went into a shop. We were only in there for about 5 minutes. When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. We went up to him and...

Daughter’s Home.

My daughter got off the airplane at midnight and home about 2:30am. Lucky for me, dh is the dropper-picker-upper at airports. I don’t like the traffic and he doesn’t mind much. So this morning Pierce went up and jumped on her to wake her up 😀  He’s so happy his sister is home. And she’s happy to be home. There have been a few...

Trying to Keep Busy

Yesterday I decided to rip up the old carpet on the stairs.  Our stupid kitten had peed on the landing numerous times, and despite a lot of scrubbing, it just was gross.  So out it went. If you remember from previous posts about our house, you’ll know it was built in the 1920’s. And old farm house. So over the years, when something would...
