BlogDare March 4 ~ My Goals This Spring Are …

Goals for Spring… Get the garden tilled under, and planted for Spring veggie crop. We always plant tomatoes, bell and jalapeno peppers, and cucumbers. Usually we plant one or two kinds of squash (crook-necked/straight-necked/zucchini) as well. I am hoping to get watermelon this year too.  ‘Spring Cleaning’Done – Kitchen cabinets cleaned out and contents rearranged, […]

BlogDare March 3 ~ What If You Didn’t Have To Worry About…

So, with this prompt I am supposed to fill in exactly what I am worried about. Something that keeps me from doing something else. Then I am supposed to write what I could accomplish if I did not have that worry. These are the things I don’t really dwell on. These are things that I […]

The More The Merrier ~ Pharoah Quail

Well, we were supposed to have more baby quail hatch out today. Of course, since the last few have been a day early, hubby decided to check them last night. It’s good he did; we had seven new little babies in the incubator! That is a quarter in the upper part of the picture, just […]

I know I should totally save this until tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday, but this little baby is just too cute! This little guy hatched from the eggs that the new quail laid that first day we brought them home. You can read more about that here. He was the first, but we still have around […]

They are all ‘Easter Eggers’ or  Ameraucana mix chicks. “What is an Ameraucana chicken?” you ask. An Ameraucana chicken is a breed of chicken developed in the United States. The name is […]

High On Life Thursday- 5th edition

This is the fifth week of High On Life Thursday with your hosts Christina (My Silly Life) and Heather (Some Kind Of Wonderful!) I think this is my favorite weekly hop. Probably because it is so positive. It helps lift the rest of my week and it helps me make it to the weekend. And […]

Bills, Bills, Bills, and aggravation

Do they ever stop? No, because if there is something you need, or something you want, you are going to have to pay someone for it. I pay the electric bill. I pay the internet bill. I pay the phone bill. What? “What about the water bill?” you ask? There is no water bill. We […]


I know its not Wordless Wednesday, but when my daughter posted this picture on her Facebook, I couldn’t resist. I told her I was stealing it and posting it. She knows this is one of the hazards of being the daughter of a blogger. This is my grandson Cha-cha (nickname!). He had just eaten that […]
