Time, Ollie, Chickens and The Weather

July 20, 2011

I find that the days and weeks just fly by in summer.
Do any of you have the same issue?
I seem to have no time to do anything.
I start out my week with a list of items to accomplish, and barely check off one thing by Sunday.

My poor little Oliver.
He has gone to see his favorite doctor for a biopsy of his lumps (yes, now plural) and we're patiently waiting for the results.
I am hoping and praying for good results and hoping and praying his pain can be taken care of soon.
My heart absolutely breaks to see him desperately trying to stand, shaky as can be.
Sitting takes a while for the little guy too.
Everything right now seems to be difficult for him. 
Except barking.
I am grateful now when I hear that bark.

The poor chickens.
Heat and humidity.
They are absolutely miserable.
Tomorrow and through the weekend we're looking at upper 90's and high humidity.
I've been giving them the chicken version of Gatorade and they sleep at night in front of their box fan, wings out so they can feel relief.

A difficult week here.

I’ve chosen to focus on one change per month so that it could not only become a more manageable goal, but I have a better chance at making these new habits...

$100.00/Week Real Food Meal Plan - Week 7

February 11, 2018

If you’re just tuning in, this is an ongoing series in which I share our weekly meal plan as I (attempt) to convert us to a Whole/Real Food lifestyle.  Our grocery budget is $100.00/week for 2 adults.  Often I make 2 different meals because I am primarily plant-based and my husband is not.  Most of what we eat is made from scratch and any boxed, canned and/or frozen products follow the Real Food...
