Spring Planting

Oh how I loooovvvee spring!! With things being so busy here I'm slowly working on the outside. A little planting here and there. I have to work quickly in between naps and school work but it's something that brings me mucho happiness!And that's important!!

By the way!! I just read the other day that is really good for your plants to water them with the left over water you boiled your veggies and eggs in. I'm trying to remember and use that water instead of just pouring it down the drain. :)

Last Night I Dreamed of Chickens.....

there were chickens everywhere,
they were standing on my stomach,
they were nesting in my hair,
they were pecking at my pillow,
they were hopping on my head,
they were ruffling up their feathers
as they raced about my bed.

they were on the chairs and tables,
they were on the chandeliers,
they were roosting in the corners,
they were clucking in my ears,
there were chickens, chickens, chickens
for as far as I could see...
when I woke today, I noticed
there were eggs on top of me.

For the most part I try not to take anything for granted. I am so thankful for the life the Lord has blessed me with. This morning I was able to sit out on the deck (with Dash of course...silly pup) and just spend some time with Jesus. It was so precious. Days spent with a 7yr old, 6yr old, and 6month old can get pretty crazy so when I have quiet time...I am extra thankful! I started a fire in the fire pit, read Psalm 23, and was just still (except for some rocking and drinking my coffee). The Lord is so good and so merciful. He truly is the Good Shepherd.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

The Poultry Babies

This is Turkey

Buzzard working so hard to get out of that shell!
My boys spent 10 min just cheering him on.

And so far my favorite...Goose. You can't tell in this photo but she looks like she's wearing eyeliner. 

Last night we had our first one hatch and oh man did that send me in a tizzy. There's nothing you can do but just sit and wait. I felt like I needed to be boiling some water and grabbing some warm towels!!
