There just aren't enough hours in a day.  No matter how prepared I am it's nearly impossible to get everything I want to get done in a weekend.  I'm not sure where the time goes, but it does.  Despite my troubles with the passing time, it was a beautiful weekend.  The highs were in the low 40's but the sun was shining and it was splendid.

The animals, as you can see, with the exception of the chickens, are enjoying the warmth of their home.  It's quite frosty in the mornings so beds, blankets and the pellet stove are all big hits.  For the chickens, the morning goodies are the talk of the day.  In the photo above they are enjoying apples and alfalfa.

I made Oliver and Emerson Apple-Cinnamon Mini "Muttins".  Sorry - that cheesy name is what I decided on.  They love them.  LOVE them!  I'll share the recipe this week - they would be a great treat to make for your special little four-legged love during the holidays.

Speaking of holidays, we got all the Christmas ornaments out and ready to go.  The day after Thanksgiving we'll be getting all decked out in Christmas decor.  It's just so hard to believe Thanksgiving is this week.  {sigh}....the weeks just fly by, don't they?

Hoping you all had a wonderful weekend!

Meal planning is my way of controlling the grocery budget (read as a LOT of dollars saved), ensuring there is no food waste for the week, as well as saving...

January 18, 2018

Simple Living

As a follow-up to “What Is Simple Living”, these are steps (goals) that I’ve been using and will continue to use this year on my own path to a simple, homemade life.  I shared that I come from a family of collectors and that was my first challenge – purging the collections.  It was emotional and difficult at times but I can honestly tell you that I am thrilled that I did it.

So the collections are...

The BEST Deviled Eggs

January 17, 2018

When we first purchased chickens we hadn't thought through the fact that we were 2 people with a dozen laying hens. That meant 12 eggs about every 26 hours. We certainly had no trouble finding people we could gift our beautiful eggs to, but we also wanted to come up with delicious ways to use some of the excess ourselves. I've always loved deviled eggs but when I came across this recipe and...
