Hello friends.  I wanted to take a moment to share the past few months with you. Life has thrown us an unexpected curve.  We lost my Dad of 28 years unexpectedly this summer after dealing with some things since spring. It threw us all into a tail spin and all of us went into survival…

I’m such a lover of frozen fruit. Have you ever tried freezing grapes, melon and bananas?  They are a fave around here and this past week, I wanted to create a delicious, healthier, summer treat for the kids. Instead of calorie-filled ice cream, these frozen chocolate banana pops were a breeze to make. When I…

  I don’t have hands that are soft as a baby’s bottom. My hands are continually used and I am rough on them. I get them dirty in the garden, in the chicken coop, at work and with the kids. I wash my hands a lot. There are are times that I treat myself to…

My heart was heavy today.  For some reason, I was thinking about Chocolate, the rooster that we rehomed this past Spring. I think a lot about him and see memories of him, like old movies scrolling through my mind.  I can still remember how it felt to hold him, his wiry neck feathers and his…

I received a call from the post office around 2pm.   They had left a message at my home and also on my cell phone.  The cell phone message was from a very concerned postal worker.  Apparently, my peeping package had arrived and it was making them very nervous.  I suppose the Osterville post office does…

Sometimes I find myself outside next to the coop or watching the girls free-range.  Often, I lose track of time, sitting there, just watching.  Frankly, watching chickens is like watching a good t.v. show and I find it not only incredibly therapeutic but relaxing! Chicken t.v. is always different.  You never know what will happen…

Well, we knew that it was going to be inevitable.  Barnstable now has a law regarding chickens.  With the popular trend of gentleman farming and people starting to keep backyard flocks of their own, it only took a few careless chicken keepers to force the hand of the lawmakers in the Town of Barnstable.  With the…

Well, sometimes the best laid plans can change. After I finished posting yesterday, my friend with the farm called and asked when I was going to bring my chickens over!  Her ears must have been ringing!  She also asked about Chocolate and if I was ready to bring him too.   Past Winter, reminding Chocolate…
