Pretty Chicks……….

As you can see the chicks have gotten a lot of their feathers.

The exciting thing is when I went in the coop yesterday afternoon one had flew onto the perch…………….I couldn’t get a picture, as soon as I got out my phone she got down. Maybe today I can. But they are getting so pretty…………….


They are here!!!!


I know it sounds funny to some, but to a true chicken lover they will understand my excitement. When I got the call I thought 2 had died, but all 25 made it. Two looked a little wobbly in the knees, but after a heat lamp, tender care, food and water they all are doing good. Kaydy learned a little, and even though she isn’t a lover like me, she thought they were cute. Next time she can handle them on her own. Who knows one day……………………a new chicken lover…….

    I’m getting so excited, this Wednesday my new chicks ship out.  I have 25 coming, can’t wait to meet them. They are all breeds that I have never had, so that’s exciting on it’s own.  I had just took a break this past year after keeping them for 25, guess they have won my heart….I will have to get the hen house up to par! (see poor chicken coop in some pics below,lol)
    The kids all came for the weekend with their families, I love get to gathers. Kaydy had hung water balloons from the tree limbs and the kids big and small had fun busting them.

Then off on the rides they went….

I love it when everyone comes to ma-maws and pap-paws house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Great day!!!

Everyday brings change…

Today I’m selling my cycle, really down about it, but I know that I can’t ride alone again. Hope they like her. She was the second bike that hubby had bought me, my first was on our 1st wedding anniversary . This one was a 1400 Suzuki, rode like a dream.

Also with every thing comes change and I’ve decided to look for another job. 25 years with walmart is enough, I would like to look for something that I would love to do ,not sure what but I could use prayers. Life is to short to not love what you spend all day on. Maybe I will just retire early. Hope everyone has a great afternoon.

Love Sunday, rest

Many times over the years I have dreaded Sunday, the race of it, fixing breakfast, getting everyone out the door, sitting in church, coming home fixing lunch, cleaning up only to turn around and fix supper, then showers and bed………….I hated it, was wore out all day.Not that the the labor was hard but that I had no (rest) in my day.  Now my family knows and has learned that I don’t do any cooking after noon on Sunday. There is always a big lunch so left overs or what ever is on the menu after that. They can eat when they are hungry, clean off their plate and put it in the dishwasher…….I don’t do dishes after lunch I enjoy my afternoon. I love to read, fish or just play in the garden. It gives me peace of mind at the end of my day. My niece Desnikka had posted this at one time and I so agree.

Everyone keeps the Sabbath in different ways, and that is between each of us and the Lord. For me I’m soaring when ever I can. For this I thank the Lord always!!!!!!!!!! He renews my soul !!!!!!! Have a great Sunday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
