Springtime at BP Farms Bed & Breakfast

I am a bit hesitant to make this comment for fear of jinxing everything...but...I think it's Spring! There, I said let me go look out the window to see if the clouds are rolling in to bring us a snow storm! ;-)

Chicks are coming...

Now if I were a different sort of man, "Chicks are coming" might have a different meaning. But as you all know by now, when I say means baby chickens! Now that we've cleared that up, can I just take a minute to jump up and down because I'm going to have three little fluff balls to take care of again?!?!

A picture is worth...Part 2

So my first attempt at an interactive post only drew one response. Hopefully that doesn't mean that only one person read the post! But no matter what the posts must go on! Thanks to Jen for her response, she gets the "RHOSC Blog Reader of the Year" award! :)

A picture is worth...

I don't even know where to begin with this post. Yesterday I remembered that while at the zoo a few weekends ago with my nephews I snapped a picture of a female gorilla. And if my memory serves me right, I took a similar picture of this same gorilla a few years back. I want to know what you think about this picture and what it brings up for you. And in my next post I will tell you what the picture brings up in me. Please, leave me some comments...I'd love to know if you get the same thing I do.

In an Aloha State of mind...

I don't know if it's been the weather lately or if it's just because I'm missing home. But I've had Hawai'i on my mind a lot lately. As I sit here listening to the wind blow, and the rain hitting the windows...I think back to my mornings in my apartment in Makiki as I would lie there listening to the morning rains coming down through Manoa Valley to make the morning air crisp and clean.

The Big Syrup Fiasco & Blogging on a Budget

Okay, I know you won't believe me because you all think I always make fabulous meals that go off without a hitch. But I'm here to tell you that last night I had a bit of an issue while cooking dinner. And it's not the first time that I've had things go awry during meal prep! This is one time that I am happy I didn't decide to film a how to video! :)

Comfort food and planning for Camp Erin

I know that I'm always cooking up what some might consider "fancy" meals, even though I find them to be great recipes and not fancy at all, but I'm going to take a moment and be completely honest with you all. Yes, I love me a good braised brisket or braised short ribs with mashed potatoes but deep down inside me...I am a sucker for...

Time fades them...but never erases...

Today is the 2nd Wednesday of the month. While some of you may be like, "Yea. And?" Well, for me it means that it is the day I head to The Healing Center for group with Healing Club 1, 2, 3. This is the grief group for 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders that I have the privilege of being the "Group Host" for.

Oh I love a sunny day!

Much to my surprise the sun decided to make an appearance today, and it's amazing how everything from the chickens to the plants in our garden seem to respond to this amazing gift! I think back to being a kid in Montana and while the winters were freezing cold, the sun was normally out and shining most days. Which is extremely deceptive because even though the sun was was NOT warm!
