Easter dinner
It was an absolutely beautiful weekend in our neck of the woods.  The snow was almost completely melted by Sunday.

With the weather so nice we decided to enjoy it by taking the dogs to the State Park for a walk.  Apparently Emerson's been spending too much time on the couch this winter because about halfway through our walk Oliver started running in circles trying to get him to chase him and Emerson laid down.  Right there in the middle of the walk.  He was finished.  I picked him up and carried him a little ways then coaxed him to finish.  He slept like a baby for the next few hours.

Sunday we loaded the boys up again, but this time to go to my mom's house for Easter dinner, and poor Emerson started shaking.  I think he thought he was going for another of those walks.  When we pulled into my mom's driveway you could almost see the sense of relief wash across his face.  At Grandma's house you get to lick the mashed potato beaters and eat cookies.  No walking necessary!

The coop girls had such a great time this weekend.  Our egg production is up to about a dozen a day.  A couple of the younger girls' legs are still bright yellow so I'm not so convinced they're laying yet.  {once they start laying consistently their leg color turns to a very light yellow}  We also believe a couple of the older girls may have thrown in the egg laying towel and have retired.

Hoping you all had a wonderful weekend!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Quick Bread

November 07, 2017


It's pumpkin season and this may be a perfect way to put it to good use.  This bread is light on pumpkin flavor but super moist and extremely delicious.  You can also freeze pumpkin puree measured into 1 c. containers to make this throughout the winter.  


I have not yet attempted a vegan version of this.  If I get brave I'll let you know......  Be careful not to over bake it.

Fall Is Almost Over?

October 24, 2017



Is it possible that fall is almost over? Temp's here are in the upper 60's and low 70's so you'd never know that it's the end of October. This just doesn't usually happen! Even the leaf peepers were likely disappointed this year........it was so warm that the leaves just kind of crumbled off of the trees. Although they were pretty, there didn't seem to be the same brilliance of color that is...
