Bare room again I'm not going back into the physical brick and mortar classroom next year. There are so many reasons why...and if I started telling the stories from this year, you would scoff and say there was no way those things happened...but they did. And these things are happening everywhere across the nation right … Continue reading I’m done
These are our new steers! They will be here @ 12-18 months. They're very skittish still! These two want nothing to do with nose pats or ear scratches or a piece of fruit... YET. Challenge accepted, boys!
This big guy is a Lavender Orpington rooster. I absolutely love this breed. He and the hen (in front of him) are well mannered, large, beautifully feathered, and good tempered. They aren't flighty or aggressive at all. Ted can lift him right off his roost at night without getting pecked or kicked. This guy is … Continue reading Lavender Orpingtons
"This is the year." I say that every year, but THIS IS THE YEAR! I WILL MARK THE BERRY BUSHES SO I CAN FIND THEM EASILY AGAIN!!! Also, it looks like we will have loads of wild berries this summer - I'm seeing berry bushes in bloom everywhere on our farm and along the highway … Continue reading Berry blooms
We've had a Mama on eggs for the past three weeks, and Saturday morning, they started hatching! We found a low sided leftover Amazon box and bought a new bag of pine shavings Saturday afternoon, and we moved Mama and her babies and eggs into it that evening. She didn't peck Ted - not even … Continue reading New chicks!
I saw this butterfly flopping on the road after work yesterday so I got it on a napkin and brought it home with me. I'm not sure what was wrong with it (I thought its wing was broken but was wrong). I nestled it on a redbud on our driveway when I reached home, and … Continue reading Saved it!
I wandered into Big Lots yesterday after getting a haircut, and they're having a big sale - 35% off mostly everything! I found this beautiful glass hanging birdbath and decided to add it to the bird feeders on my porch. It's so pretty! It was less than $10 on sale!
It's always been a running joke that I had a black thumb. I loved planting things and having flowers, but Gramma always came up weekly and reminded me which ones to water and fertilize. She sometimes just did it all herself. Most of my plants died every summer, and only a pothos lived inside (I … Continue reading Thank you, Gramma!
We love the Cedar Bay Sugar & Spice Salmon that's sold at Kroger. It was a nice splurge at the grocery store when on sale, but it's recently been running upwards of $21 - $24, and that's just way too high. I pulled some salmon out of the freezer tonight and started looking for a … Continue reading Sweet & Smoky Salmon
