Duck, Duck, Attempted Murder

Farm Animal Update It’s been a bit since I did a little post about my animals.  The ducks are doing a great job learning to quack.  It’s pretty stinking cute.  Essentially, you don’t know for sure on the sex until they are fully grown.  I got nervous recently because both Lucy and Ethel got a patch of bright blue so I was worried they might be Ricky and Fred.  Turns out with Mallards that both […]

Our Little Farm is Growing

Since the first time we looked at chicks I have wanted ducklings.  They are stinkin’ adorable.  Tom has always said no. Sadly our chickens didn’t make it much into the Fall.  They ‘went to live on another farm’.  Or maybe they were dinner for a coyote or a hawk.  Either way, we only ended up getting around 6 or 7 eggs total from our first four chicks we got last spring. A couple days ago […]

The Spring Standoff is Over

You might remember when I mentioned that there was a bit of a standoff going on in my life.  You see, I told myself that I couldn’t get my hair done until I made and went to a dentist appointment.  I’m just not a fan of the dentist and I was pretty sure I was going to be told that I need my wisdom teeth out, which sounds like a total POTS nightmare. Well, my […]

  We returned home Monday from a weekend of spring break fun at the ranch.  It was a lovely little getaway.  One of the benefits of going there is that the dogs can come too and oh boy do they have fun.  They have been asleep since we got home I’m pretty sure. I said a weekend of firsts because I’m pretty sure we each did something new. Carter learned to play CLUE.  I loved playing […]

Goats Don’t Get a Lollipop or a Sticker

So unfair.  It’s hard to be a goat on doctor day, but there is one plus; the vet comes to your house and you don’t have to go out. Earlier this week our goats had their yearly checkups.  They were very interested in what the veterinarian had and what she was doing until it involved poking them. We are thinking about breeding Maizy, which means that all three of the girls need to be tested […]

If you didn’t put that cryptic title together, I’ll help you.  We got a snowmobile.  Nothing fancy, just an old machine that works enough to haul us around. That husband of mine is always looking out for me.  Yes some could see this recent purchase as a toy for him, but honestly he did get this for me to be able to get around a bit on our property in the snow. With our newest […]

Funny Farm Stuff / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This

Hi friends.  Today I built a fire and narrated it with my Snapchat account.  Those who received it, seemed to enjoy it so I thought I should share with y’all.  I don’t know if this technically falls in my category funny farm stuff or hold my Gatorade and watch this.  A little of both I guess. I spy a Hero puppy… I suppose you could use something else too if you wanted. One of my […]

Hello friends.  The last few days have included some more winter prep around our house.  We ordered a custom snow plow blade to be attached to our tractor to make snow removal easier.  We went to pick it up a couple days ago.  It was about a five hour drive round trip.  My body actually held up pretty well.  I was pretty tired at the end of it, but I did a lot better than I […]

Saturday included an hour and 45 minute drive up to look at (and possibly purchase) a 1964 Chevrolet tilt cab water truck with a 1500 gallon tank. I knew this was going to be an entertaining experience as soon as we arrived based on these two factors: The directions included, “As you come into town and cross the bridge, then follow the signs for the hospital.  Pass the hospital and drive until you see a dirt […]

A Country Tale

Some Milestones Worth Mentioning I drove the truck the other day pulling the water tank trailer.  I towed it empty and I towed it back when the tanks were full.  I understand which way to turn the wheel to back the trailer a specific way, but I can’t wrap my mind around why it works like that.  I can’t imagine trying to back it into a specific space though. I also backed the tractor all the […]
