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.

Snow, Sleet, Cloudy, Cold, Wet, Rainy

The above seems to be the theme for today and tomorrow. Plenty of winter weather to go around, anyone lacking? You can have all you want of mine. ;) Really, I don't mind. Take it all if you are so inclined.

This would be a good time to spread our wings...

and fly away south for the winter. Or...we could just huddle together and try to keep warm til it all passes...

Now is certainly no time to be caught out in the wind and exposed...

So everyone stay warm...think of some past memory that reminds you of sun and fun...

and maybe it will help to get through winter. So lets conjure up good warm memories and soon we will be out getting our gardens ready...

mowing that fresh green grass...can you smell it? Nothing like the smell of fresh cut grass...

It wont be too much longer. January is half over. So lets remember...that warm sunny days are ahead. It will come...it always does. We just have to be patient, and it will come.

I hope everyone has a good day today...I am going to be going out early to feed and water as we are having some nasty weather to come in and so...time to put on the muck boots and some gloves and a coat and get to it. :)

Thankyou for your kind comments on the passing of our Kitten, it is very much appreciated.

We may get some of that bad weather also but you live further North than us so your chances are better than ours to get it. Great pictures. That flower is beautiful. Take care during this messy weather. Take some pictures to show us if you get any snow or ice. Come on Spring. Hugs, Helen

I used to get alerts from you. Don't know what happened. We had two chickens that we enjoyed but something got them both. Do you have chickens come up missing? How do you protect them from hawks or coyotes? We really miss our chickens.

Kelly....what a beautiful entry.  It seems like Spring already.  Thanks for that.  Colt & I are enjoying the snow just a little though.  It's kind of a treat since we don't get it very much.  Colt is hoping for a snow day tomorrow.  I guess we'll see.  Keep warm.

I loved this entry, the pictures were perfect with what you were saying.  I love the "exposed" shot, that is just great.  I am counting the days...hours till it is warm again.  Stay warm & dry, the nasty weather you are talking about is headed our way.
