Ted unloading boxes of pork We picked up the pork yesterday from the butcher. We do this every couple of years and yet I am still always shocked at how much meat actually goes into the freezer (it's a LOT). This is the end result of quite a bit of hard work. Removing ice build-up … Continue reading Pork time!
Stella vs Me
Stella and I are waging war on one another. She is determined to eat and lay in my palm plants. I am determined that she's not doing it. I think she's winning.
When the power goes out
Last week, we (Ted, Jake, Janeesa, and I) went bowling and ordered takeout.

Definitely his cat
I don't care what he says - Stella is most definitely Ted's cat, and Ted is most definitely Stella's person!
I don't know what happened, but my climbing rose bush went WILD over the past two weeks! She's grown so much and has so many roses open that some of the canes are bending over and touching the ground!
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
