Goats

I have one doe who is due to kid in another day! She is ready. We moved her to the birthing pen last night & she is adjusting well. No babies when I went out this morning but time will tell.  The black one (Hope) is due this week. This is a shot from last summer so she is much bigger than this today!  I will keep you posted!

March Snow!

I woke up this morning to snow on the ground! It seems so strange to see the robins hopping around in the snow! I am hoping that one day soon the green will be here to stay!

Last week end we sowed another hay field. We don't have fancy equipment so we sowed it by hand. My husband first ran the disc over it with his antique tractor & then we walked it for 2 hours & sowed seed. Then after that he ran the harrow over it to lightly cover the seed. Hopefully in a few weeks we will see seedlings starting to pop up!

I am planning on paper what is going in the garden! Right now we can't get in the field. It is way too wet with snow on it!

Soon I hope!

Love Food & Live Well

What an interesting book! I love how Mrs. Hobbs makes the reader think about the connection between food & God. He created it for us why wouldn't He want us to enjoy it!







It is full of all kinds of helpful tips & recipes. I am anxious to find her other books & read them as well.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.”

Springtime!

Is springtime on it's way in your neck of the woods? It is here! The robins have been back for about 2 weeks now & the walking onions have begin to peek their greenery out of the dirt!

It starts a bug in me that wants to get out & start digging in the garden. I went out yesterday to check on things & when I opened the cold frame it came off its hinges. Guess that will have to be a project to put on the to do list!

We will be seeding the pasture again this year & so that is on the list for this week end. As I walked the garden & yard I noticed little tufts of green throughout trying to break through to the sun! I can't wait for the brown to go away & the green to reappear!

What have you got in mind for your gardens this year? Are you still in the planning stage or are you like me ready to start digging?

Just wondering?!?

Ever wonder how this whole internet thing will end up? Will it go the wayside like the typewriter? Will it become the only way to communicate?

I have seen it become the best way for scam artists to attack people! There is no recourse-you have no way to find them!! Do not take any mystery shopping jobs from Secret Shopper! It is a scam! The first emails you get are believable from Dianne Scholes but then it becomes weird! They start coming from Micheal Scholes & you never get paid!! Take care & don't get taken advantage of!!

If anything sounds to good to be true -it is-don't fall for it!!!

3 Books in One!

This is a wonderful children's book. It covers so many of the questions that children ask. It gives simple but wonderful answers to those questions.


I love the art work! It just looks inviting!



The author has a great way to connect with kids. It helps the kids use their imaginations to see the polar bear family as they talk through all of this.


I am saving this one again for the grandbabies!!!I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.”
