Mother in Loves passing.

      I haven't been here for awhile. My mother in love, passed late July. I've been very busy, cleaning her house and we've taken in my hubbies brother, David. He has special needs on top of cancer so my time is no longer my own. So I'm sorry I haven't commented on anything I just now am in a routine where I can have early morning 3am to read and catch up.

      With that being said, this contact I need more than ever. Because of his needs I don't get away very much and if i do only an hour or so. He pretty much follows me everywhere, or waits outside doors until I come out. See David is 68, but by mind is between 4 and 8, and sometimes an adult in what he can do. It is hard to keep up with, lol.

        Hope to write more soon, He just got up................. Have a blessed day

Down the rabbit

 My chores got done this morning a little late. The chickens fed, watered, and the new chicks added to the flock. I ordered 4 Splash wyandotte chicks and got 6. There are two that will look different, but the other 4four look like my blue laced. That is fine because I like this breed. They are very social and do fine with the family. 



        I planted some flowers before the rain, will mulch afterward. I just want them planted so the rain can settle them in. I'll so pictures where I put them in another post.




          I was going to start the house clean-up, but a sweet neighbor gathered these for me. Mind you mine aren't ripe yet so I will have plenty to put in the pantry,

           


          So this is my rabbit hole..... canning, dehydrating, and fermenting. I couldn't think of a better excuse not to clean, lol Have a great day everyone.

Thursday on the Farm wk1

   




This week on the farm.

    After the 1st of July, we have been busy here. We started with moving some cows to a pen so that we could get the bull up. His leg was swollen above his hoof. He is a young bull and was with the cows for the first time. He is now better. We went ahead and placed another bull in with the cows, so ahead with the breeding season. 



    The 4th was a lot of fun. I received a new smoker, and we smoked pork butt, brats, and chicken shish kabobs. I threw on a few reg hotdogs for the young ones. I love that smoker!! It's an 8 in 1 can't wait to cook more. We had tater salad and smoked mac and cheese on the grill. Our youngest daughter and her hubby made the mac and cheese. It was very good. I will share the recipe if she will let me.



      I got the youngest grandkids this week, while mom paints their bedroom and gets their big girl beds together. Like I said before, I'm not as young as I use to be. We have played on the swings, fed chickens, counted cows, and played with the riding toys. By the time I give baths and read a story, I think I'm sleepier than them. It is well worth it though.
       My youngest daughter and I took the kids to the park, now that was a hoot!!



      
       Have a wonderful day everyone!

The last one hatched!

           Last 23 days I've been playing mama to 24 eggs. Setting up watch to listen to and looking for those small little peep holes. 



To Raise Chicks With Attitudes !!


           No joke look at that face !!! Roo I bet !!!!

           The garden , well let me say that the garden will need more time.  A storm decided to go through and that stopped the taters going in. I tell myself to stay calm it's still early. So the fun will be getting everything in ground, so that in a few months jars will be in the canner, the dehydrator will be singing as the pressure gage sings it's lead. Have a great day!!

Happy Easter!

   Happy Easter !
                All things change but Christ never does! Thank you Jesus, let us all remember the reason for this season.
                  Here on the farm, chickens are hatching, cattle are birthing and gardens are going in. We have been working on some up grades with the farm. I've watch my mother in law the last few years, 93 this year, try to do her blackberries and persimmons. When things were planted the thought of how far away they were was never a question. She doesn't want to stop doing the things she loves. I know I won't either. So changes must happen.
                  The kids have grown and have started helping us. We enjoy and want them to make it theirs someday. I pray the farm gives each one joy. This is short but time to move on, God Bless you all!
Setting up house
                                                                       New chicks on the way

The way we remember

Our tree is up, all in bloom. My favorite angels, I got over 20yrs ago when my life changed so much. My hubbies ole bat and glove. The old truck and pull toys he had played with and some of the ole toys are kids played with also. The riding toy Donald made for Shannon who is gone but never forgotten. I wish I had saved those special ones over the kids years. This is the best I can do. The wood name plates Kaydy and I did have all our family. Lydia had to be made this year, name on front birthday on back. The Santa ladder, Donald's dad and mom made for us years ago. Notice the ole pull toy and bubble gum popper, people today would have a field day with the way they were made back then. Yet no one was hurt by them. The tree reminds me of family, and the love of them and peace on earth we should all feel. Please show your tree and what it means to you.

Busy Monday

   Coming out of the weekend, I have been very busy. I do laundry on Mondays. I always wash bedclothes first so I can hang them on the line. It was to rain this afternoon so I got started early. Towels and whites also went on the line. I didn't think to get pictures but I did when I took the rugs out to beat them. We have a lot of sand on the farm so it is easily brought in. Number 1 reason everyone takes their shoes off when they come in.

 As I was doing laundry I got the kitchen cleaned from the weekend. Don't know about you, but Hubby likes me hanging around him when he is home. I'm glad He does and I do every time I can. 


All clean and the floor mopped. Now enjoying laundry done and put away and back on the bed, I can catch up a little on my blog. .

The tree has been up a week now. Funny how the grand kids love to play with the old toys from the past. My hubby's bat and glove, a old general lee car from the dukes of hazard days. The red ladder and Santa my father in law made me when we got married long ago. There is a old pull toy and bubble gum popper. My daughter help make the wooden name signs on the tree. We had to add a new one this year, for Lydia. What's on your tree? Have a wonderful day!

What a great weekend!






I didn't get to see everyone I wanted, but I did have a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had our niece and her family come and stay a few days. We had family dinner at my brothers, with his family. All my kids and family came. It was so much fun! 



 Covered bridge near us.

Should of seen them trying to get me down. Not funny to me but they got a kick out of it,lol.



Donald showing Jacob how the woodsplitter works.

We got our small tree put up. I decided this year instead of putting presents under it, I went and found the kids old toys, my husbands bat and glove, the old riding toy hubby made for his niece before she passed. I picked out toys all my children and grandchildren played with. I love my tree, memories!

Happy Thanksgiving

I miss the times when all things were closed on the holidays, so all families could enjoy them. Thinking of those far from their home this season.

Thanksgiving, what new hope?

          Last year at this time we were facing my brother in laws cancer. It was a rough start at that time. I was still working and trying to help them out. Doctors, hospitals and words we had no understanding of came into our path. This past year we faced many sorrows, lots of pain, but most of all new birth. Our grand daughter Lydia was born, she is our 7th grand baby. My brother in law David got a rebirth after his stem cell replacement. He will be getting all new baby shots because after that treatment none of his old things before are still there. New birth, amazing! GOD is AMAZING!
          Wishing everyone a thoughtful Thanksgiving !

Burr!!!!!!

Well for sure we missed Fall. Cold wind blowing and brown leaves rustling across the back porch. I'm glad hubby got the furnace ready and now she is warming the house. We use it for the hot water also. Great for the electric bill.

Dad help the kids put up the tree stand. This should help their food bill this winter and of course I should see a few packages. lol I like grilled deer steak. I did have to take pictures. lol
Hope everyone stays warm!
