How will you face it?

Death...at some point in our lives...we will all have to face it. Be it a pet, an acquaintance, a loved one or someone more immediate...we will all face it. With that in mind...have you thought about how you will face it? It seems like now, more than ever, I'm forcing myself to think about these scenarios.

Tick...Tock...Goes My Biological Clock!

Madonna's song is stuck in my head right now...Time goes by...so slowly. It truly, truly does! And the more time passes, the louder my biological clock ticks! So I'm doing anything I can to appease all of this! And it has come down to incubating and hatching my own chicks!

When Life Hands You Lemons...

You know the old saying that starts with..."When life hands you lemons," right? Well, do you ever find that when life hands them to you, instead of making lemonade you want to chuck them at the people that are pissing you off?

Tried and true...with something new!

It's been a bit on the warm side here in Edmonds, and yesterday it seemed to break just a bit. While me and the boys hung out inside, the chickens had the run of the yard. The girls loved foraging all day, especially after I mowed the back lawn and stirred up all the bugs! :) When it came time to decide what was for dinner I pulled out my cookbooks and started thumbing through them. I smiled as I planned the dinner and knew that it has been a while since I did a dinner post so this was the perfect one!

Doggone Annoyed

Do you have a dog or dogs? Do you frequently take them into public? Are you sometimes embarrassed by their behavior? Do you find people are willing to freely give you advice even when they aren't asked? If so, this blog post is for YOU! I guess this can also ring true for people with children...but in my case...it's dogs.

The past couple of days have been nothing short of overwhelming, and I don't mean it in the negative sense of the word. The amount of readers, comments, Facebook "likes," and e-mails that have happened amazes me. I guess I didn't realize that as many people would see this article and respond in some way or another.

Exciting Times at The Farm!

It's 1:15 AM, and I really should be sleeping. But let's be honest, I can't sleep, not with all this exciting stuff happening! What's going on? Do you really want to know? Okay, I can't contain myself anymore...

It's Independence Day, for some.

This year the day that the United States celebrates it's freedom means a little bit more to me. For most of my life I've lived in this country full of freedoms that were given to some but not all. Today as I sit here typing this I realize that I'm one of the lucky ones.

Whale Watching & the Trip Home

Our last day in Tofino was such an amazing day! The last time I posted we were getting ready to head to town for a walk around and whale watching tour! And I'm happy to report that we did see whales...but sadly no orcas. :(
