Waiting for Spring

Posted by mrssmythe on March 3, 2019 in Baking, Chickens, Crafting, Critters, libraries, Seasons, Week in Review |

A pretty slow week here. All of our attention seems to be on either waiting for the snow to leave or dealing with the new drifts that arrive.

Sledding with Chickens…and some other stuff

Posted by mrssmythe on January 27, 2019 in Baking, Chickens, Crafting, Critters, Seasons, Week in Review |

Ginger took one of the chickens sledding this past week… It was Cassie. I’m not sure she liked it much – but at least now she can say she’s tried it. None of the other chickens have gone sledding. Maybe she will boast about it in the coop at night. Ginger, on the other hand, […]
