About Me

My photo
I am a 42 year old woman that is about as happy and content as one person can be. My husband of 21 years and our 15 year old daughter live on five and a half acres out in the country. We moved from the city four years ago and never looked back. I homeschool our daughter. We also love our animals. Our daughter has a miniature horse and two rabbits. We also have a border collie, two cats (again), two pot belly pigs, four peafowl, three emus, 2 llamas and an undetermined number of chickens, lets just say ohhh about 200. I have many breeds, from layers to fancy chickens. I love poultry shows, I love fowl in general as I have come to find out through having more than just chickens. Chickens will always be my first love though. I do show some of my birds occasionally.

An Account of How Things Came To Be


It just occurred to me that some folks to do not really "know" me, or my background, how I grew up...what childhood was like, things of that nature. So, I am going to start a journal on my life, how I grew up...how things were for me. Memories I guess you could say...just things as they pop into my mind....and I am going to start another journal on how I came to have chickens in the first place...


Chicks in Brooder

Now I just have to figure out what to call these two new journals. When I have that worked out in my mind, then I can begin. I may have to see about getting some old pictures from my Mama and Daddys album...and do some digging around here too. This might be fun...and I am willing to bet, once the weather turns cold I will really get into these two offshoot journals. I have to take my time, think about things...remember, think back...daydream...ought to keep me busy during the winter months.

The two pictures above are what I will start each journal with. One is of me as a toddler, and one is of my first chicks.


I also wanted to mention Dwains Journal over on the side bar. Please go and visit him when you have time and leave a comment for him. The ten chicks he has pictured on his last entry are of the Serama I hatched for him in trade for a pair of Red Gold Pheasants I will attempt to breed next Spring. He absolutely adores these chicks. When I went to his house to exchange birds I had such a good time looking at all his birds. He also has some rabbits. I don't have a picture of my pheasants yet, but he has a picture of the male in his first journal entry. He found my journal by accident when surfing for anything on Seramas...and thought it sounded so familiar...and when he asked...I told him yes, that was my journal he had found...small world even on the internet isntit? I inspired him to keep a journal as well...to talk about his birds and his family history. He is into geneology and has traced ancestors to quite a ways back with stories to go with them. I am always interested in old time stories, and I hope he will post some for us soon.

Well, I think the weather is going to cooperate...the sun is out, for now...haven't seen much of that in it seems like over a week. So, I am going to take advantage of it and go out and do some mowing this morning. I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday and I will see you all tomorrow morning. Bye for now...

I've found it works best for me if I incorporate everything into one journal; otherwise I lose interest in the other topics and stop writing there.  Also, readers stick with me better if I keep it all together.

You look so happy!  What a cute picture.  I think it's great you are going to start more journals.  I look forward to reading them and learning more about you.  I'll check out Dwains journal as well.

I'm so looking forward to reading all about your growing up years. The picture is so cute. I agree with Mosie about people may not read all of them as if you put them all into one it might work better. Just a suggestion. I tried to seperate mine back in Oct of 03. One for country things and one for other things. No one ever read the other things. lol Paula
