As most of you know, we demolished the old cinder block house on the property. Unfortunately, remodeling it was not a great option as the foundation was compromised and we found tons of mold, rot and termites during demolition. Very yucky! We were able to salvage some (cool rock, flooring, tin, etc.) that we and [Continue]
Here is a photo of the big front field, mowed, looking like a giant lawn. The little patches you see still out there are milkweed plants that I left for the Monarch butterflies. .
4″ of rain last night and water is back in the pond!!!! Yeah!!! .
We got a real light dusting of snow last night. You can see it here and there in the yard but no real accumulation. Bummer. Travis and Erin were up and dressed in their ski suits at 6 am ready to play in the snow. 🙁 On the happy side (at least for them), school [Continue]
Thanks to Nick and Kathryn who cleaned all the disgusting wood shavings and chicken poop out of the garage!!! We almost have the garage back. Still lots of dust and feathers but at least the stink is gone. Yeah!.

Check out these cool gasket things. Bought them at a kitchen store a while back. They are the diameter of a rolling pin and different thicknesses so you can roll out dough to the exact thickness you need. .
Since the chickens are occupying the garage until January, wanted something to protect the Cub Cadet. Check out the new cover ordered from Cabelas. .
Here is a panorama shot of our view across the pond. Hope everyone has a safe and yummy online slots Thanksgiving! .
This is a coral snake killed up the road this week. Pretty but dangerous… .
Here is Robbie and the giant snapping turtle taken off the pond this week. We are going to let “nature” process it for us and save the shell. We estimated it at 20-25 pounds. .
Check out the side of our barn! I finished this today. It is my first public artwork. .
