I've made quite a few mistakes in the past week. I am confident in myself to publicly say "I've made a mistake"...or two. Or more Here they are... 1. The chicken was not eaten by a predator. Ducky MoMo was hiding in the hayloft. The same hayloft that we had canvassed four times already. But, … Continue reading My Mistakes
I'm missing a chicken. Well, I was missing a chicken, but then she was there. Smack dab in the middle of the flock. Then she was gone again. Nowhere to be seen when it's time to lock up the hens when the sun has gone down. Chickens will instinctually head to the chicken coop when … Continue reading Where’s Ducky MoMo?

The sun was a no-show. It was drizzly and my bones felt wet all day. My kids came home from … Continue reading Spring Chicks
I'm trying something new. Something I've thought about doing, but didn't know really how to get started. Or how to present my idea to the public. But, fate and time have intersected and now I'm gonna give it a go. I'm going to make some of my farm photos into notecards to sell at a … Continue reading Farm Photography
I'm baking pies today. Thanksgiving is in two days. I'm going traditional with my baking. Pumpkin and pecan will do it for us. My dad is known as "Plain Bob" and he doesn't like anything too fancy. He usually finds out that he actually likes fancy when he eats fancy, but he's happy with only … Continue reading Pies, Aging, And An Empty Sh*tter.
