You Have What????

April 21, 2010

This is usually the response when someone finds out I raise chickens. It's usually followed with "you don't look like you'd have chickens". I'm not sure what one looks like that raises chickens but apparently, not like me.
Understandably, this reaction usually comes from people who see me during the week in my "dress up" clothes and only know the "business" me not who I really am. But I still find it amusing.

If only they could see me every morning!

This is what I look like around 7:30a.m. Business attire minus the business shoes. The chickens aren't typically impressed.
Then, I come in and change the shoes and head off for the day.
At the end of the day the shoes change back to the crocs or muck boots and I'm back in the chicken coop playing with them.
By the way, the top photo is of one of the babies with Mama. They're 8 weeks old already! You should see them when Mama Claire goes in the nesting box to lay an egg for the day. They join her! She has the patience of a saint. They jump on her back and play all over her but she stays in that box and lays a lovely little egg.

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...
