Oh Silver its been the winter from H***!! NO ONE I know is not SICK Of it.It started to drop temps the first week of December and its been mostly in the ice hole ever since it just DOESNT end!!We have frozen everything here pipes and sewers and cars you name it!!We will all be SO happy to see the end of it when ever that may be? We have had average snowfall though so at least we dont have that up to our eyeballs yet... I am SO glad I quit my job in November I would not have wanted to drive much this winter , The wind is nasty and blows the snow all over the roads and then some freezes and its a bugger!! yes going to be great to finally be above 0 for more then a day!! i hate to be so negative but we really are all at the breaking point here!! emoticon

The feeders we have look like quart vinegar jars. They are very simple and easy to maintain. I only have to hang one up these days .We do not get any where near the birds we used to get. I was a once in a lifetime thing I guess. We loved living there but it was a lot of work.

I have been out today cleaning up the goat pens. It is almost kidding time. I will be happy once they deliver. I am down to 3 doe goats these days.

I also sold my last donkey yesterday . It will be easier .But I am sure going to miss him.
Okay breaks over back to work with me :)

WOW I have lost this thread. :/ I have been working out in the yard for the past few days. Today it was almost 70* I wish it would stay like this. I hope you warm up soon too.I give you credit. I am sure I would run away and never come back.
We even took the dogs on a short hike... I am really sore I guess I need to take it even easier grrrr . Told my mom I was going to have to look at me reflection in the mirror to remind myself of my age LOL She said she would need to try that too.
I am off to the hot tub. that makes everything a bit better xo

I sold my peafowl . They male was attacking the turkey. the car the house anything male or that he could see his reflection in. It was awful. I was happy to be rid of them. The females laid a million eggs and never sat on anything. The ones I hatched would all have bum legs and starve out. SO they were just costing me to have them around. Am down to one mini donkey and 5 goats.Also not adding anymore chickens.Funny huh you are finally living your child hood dream and your body gives up. LOL SIGH Guess at least I can say I once had all this fun stuff :)

Oh oh the kids have a couple pea fowl now and the male dissapeared while I was house sitting 4th of July weekend and then when the daughter came home she found him all the way down the road a mile or more by my BIL so she brought him home and he must have been real hungry ate like crazy and now he hasnt left again, good thing some one around here would shoot him if they say him they are all gun happy hunters and shoot anything that moves! ARRGGG guess she better keep an eye on him!

I have a turkey sitting. Her eggs are no good and she will not stop. I have given her some chicken eggs. Out of the last hatches I had a lot of roosters and I gave them away. Then my dopey dogs got out and killed a bunch of hens and some of my favorite roosters. So Now I have to look for rooster to bereed certain birds if it is something I want to continue ,Not thinking I do. I sold my pea fowl although they are beautiful they get into mischief. They ripped out my flowers and the cock kept attacking windows cars anything he could see his reflection in. He beat the snot out of my sweet turkey.
LOL who knew birds could keep you so on your toes :)

We had some rain last night and yesterday so the garden has water once more and I found a cute kitten beside its dead mom today by my flower bed have no idea what happened to his mom and she wasnt roughed up at all.Looked like she just climbed under the propane tank and died.! He is pretty little but he can eat by him self so thats good at least. I will be tilling tomorrow still have a small section of garden to work again so I can transplant a lot of my Iris this fall.They are so in need of digging and moving now!Cant wait for the tomatoes and cucumbers to eat I have had 3 little gold tomatoes to eat is all so far!

I hatched a bunch out over the winter about 20 of them were roosters so I gave them away. They are so cute when they are little. We are down to around 75 birds. I am thinking of not adding more. It is getting harder and harder to sell eggs because more and more people are getting chickens :) Glad people are waking up a bit,
My veggie garden is doing great lots of little stuff on the vines can not wait for it to grow up so I can eat it.
I have lost about 10 pounds too. It is the last 5-6 that get me every time :/ frustrating.
Pintrist is very addicting I love to look at thing on there. Have never made anything though .
Better get ready for work :)

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

Where did most of the year go? lol. I feel like you do, not enough rain, and our garden was much different then last year. Our Tomatoes tasted good, but not as big of a crop. Oh well, always next year!

May I always be the kind of person that my dog thinks I am.

Our Summer has gone by fast too :( Also wish we would get a bit more rain. I can see it off in the distance but it usually just goes by.
I am just about over the veggie garden. First it was aphids not it is those awful horned worms LOL UGH they are so gross. The tomatoes all got curly top and blossom end rot this year. At times I wonder why I waste my time.

We do not hear much about the fires here now. Mostly it is about the fires in Co. It has been such a terrible start to the fire season for so many people :(

I agree kids need to treat animals with respect and love. It will foster morals in them on how to treat all living things including people

Our dogs like kids and it is when they are following when she gets pushy with them. :( Unfortunately it is a learned behavior their parents treat their own dog in a not so nice manner. He is a Pain in the butt happy Jack Russell

He is a little stinker LOL I do not think my little guys care about the kids a all.In fact none of the dogs really do.Probably because the kids really do not seem to care about them. The little one has taken to kicking the on corgi. I kick her last week to see if she liked it LOL KIDS

I have not heard of anything going on with the hummers. But I will admit I have been focused on other things lately.

I hear you there !!its fun to watch them all though!I had a great experience with the hummingbirds yesterday was just finished cleaning and filling one of my feeders and took it out to hang on the pole when a hummer landed on it while I was holding it and stayed eating from a lot of the many ports!!It would look at me every once in a while and then keep eating what fun!! emoticon

I have so many broody hens this year. Several have hatched out some chicks.I bet there are 30 new chicks out there. :) I won't have to buy any this year.Our turkeys have had a bad year with their eggs. I usually have babies to sell this year I only got 5 and a skunk got them. Also only two pea chicks have hatch :/ I am letting the flock of turkens run around again. Had to keep them penned up for a bit because they were trashing the bamboo we transplanted UGH the poultry life LOL
