Critters are up

 Well still have a fine rain falling, went out to gather the night eggs and close up the chickens. They were already in, guess they didn't like the cooler weather. They had cleaned up all the persimmons that had fell today. They will have some pretty deep orange in the yolks for the next few days. lol won't taste them though. The cows have been counted and the fire stoked so in the house for the rest of the night. sure hope everyone had a wonderful day.


This is my young rooster, Joe, He is a brown leghorn, guards the chicks like a pro.....I love his blue feathers

Fall gatherings and the crazy lady

      This time of year beware, as I drive the country roads looking for the dead heads.......yes I'm the one, muck boots, baseball cap and shovel with plastic baggies in my hand. That's me plucking off the dead heads of flowers that have passed there season, for winters rest. It's me the one digging up plants that I tagged thur out the year, oh my..........the truth is out ,,I'm a bag toting lady who can't be trusted around your plants.....there it's out !!! now I can move on with my day. lol Have a great day everyone !!!

Rainy day Tuesday

        I'll be doing indoor chores today, laundry and slow cooking. Went out and let the chickens out of the pen and added wood to the wood stove. I love that wood stove, it keeps the house warm and cuts down on the elc. bill by 150 dollars. I'm moving my sewing machine into the living room for the winter, because I sew more in the winter.
         I've been visiting a few blogs, seeing what other farmers are doing. I  love to see the porches and the fall deco. I'll be working on mine later today if I get off here and get busy. lol so everyone have a blessed day....

A week of cleaning


I'm on vacation this week and am cleaning from top to bottom. The kitchen pantry is my first stop, then the cabinets.
I try to keep my home clean, but boy do I have a mess in the cabinets. I thank God for all he has provided for us. This is why I need a cleaning plan, I can surface clean just fine but with  working full time, and the farm sometimes I just can't keep up with the rest. I could blame it on my age, but then I'm only 53 I should be able to keep up...I've been looking at fly ladies page, to get ideas.
I sure hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Home binder

Does anyone have a  home binder and use it ? I need to get a plan in place to help out here on the farm. By next year the farm will be making us a little money I hope, so i need a working plan to keep things straight. I've see a lot on the web but was wondering.

Wonderful day on the farm

 It is such a wonderful day. So pretty outside, getting ready to go for a cycle ride, then back to get the raised beds finished for winter. I love fall, picking up walnuts, and hickory nuts for the new years baking, the changing leaves, but most of all the warmth of the wood stove and cuddling, hee hee that winter brings when hubby can't be outside as much.....lol. I'm going to study beekeeping as much as I can i want a hive come spring if i am ready. The new chicks will arrive this spring also, 50 little ones... slowly getting the farm to where it will be able to feed us...12 egg layers , pecan,walnut, and hickory nut trees, blackberries,cattle, garden, persimmon and cherry trees, strawberries and soon apples. I want so bad to be able to feed the family off the farm..............it's coming soon !!! Have a wonderful day !!!

season changes

    As the leaves change, and thoughts turn to winter coming and what I can do to make my home warm and inviting to the most important people in my life. My family...................I want my husband to enjoy being home, our daughter to love having her friends over and at the end of my work day, feel good about what i have done. It is time to bring out the soft blanket to lay on the couch and the pillows to cuddle up with to watch TV. In the summer we are outside most the time but come winter, family movies. The candles ready and lantern lights ready for snow power outages. The freezer ready for late winter pies and stews. I so love fall and winter.
