Girls Night Out I’m sure you read my previous post about our newest animal, Claire, but if you missed it you can read it here.  She is settling in and the goats have been coming out in the evenings to meet her.  They are all pretty cute. I think my little squad is better than these other iconic girl squads. Bitch Chicken Antics Bitch chicken continues to get out as she sees fit and has found […]

I can’t remember if I told y’all that we officially put a deposit down for a mini Scottish Highland cow, but that we have to wait until Fall or Spring for the right one to be born.  It’s exciting.  Well, in the meantime we had been looking for a lady cow.  We were having a very hard time finding what we were looking for.  Keep in mind, the girly cows are pretty spendy because of […]

Today was a special day for me.  I was down at a friend’s farm this morning and a mama piggy was giving birth to piglets.  She had given birth to 6 (2 were stillborn) and was working on pushing the seventh baby out.  She was struggling for quite a while and I was starting to get nervous.  For a first time piggy mama, they can get startled easily when the babies are out and grunting […]

Remember the House on the Hill

Deep Thoughts About POTS / Funny Farm Stuff / Uncategorized

A little thought for today. I live up on a hill (or up on a mountain as Carter describes it).  Down at the base of the hill is a river.  There are some fancy big houses right on the river, of course.  But up just a bit is a main road and most houses across the road have a river view as well. Well, there is a very modest little 1500 square foot, two bedroom, one […]

I have a few little updates to share with y’all.  Let’s talk about what’s new on our little farm.  It was orchard pickup last week.  We have found a great family-run business who sell gorgeous bushes and trees that all have something edible, whether it is a berry, a flower, or root.  We love to order from them and we went last week to pickup our order. This meant over the weekend Carter and Tom […]

My New Chicken Barn

The week of Valentine’s day Tom and I made a down payment on a fantastic little barn with the understanding that we would pay the second half once the owners helped us disassemble the barn, move it to our house, and reassemble it on our property.  A few weeks ago we completed the project and moved the chickens into their new mansion.  They are quite happy in their new home. I put together a few […]

Tilly Girl Tom and I were outside the other day working hard on another project around the farm (to be featured in a blog soon hopefully).  We let the goats out to graze and play while we were outside.  Miss Tilly was acting super weird.  Standing by herself and just staring off into the distance.  She didn’t graze with the other goats.  She was standing pressing her head against the house.  Poor little baby was […]

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 […]
