Posted by mrssmythe on February 18, 2019 in Baking, Books, Chickens, CPT's Lens, Critters, Kitchen, Old Books, Seasons, Week in Review |

We had another visit from the wild turkeys this week. If you look along the top of our back fence, you can see our turkey (the white one) sidling up to a wild turkey (the darker one to the right). At first we thought she was just being friendly. But, once the wild turkey dropped […]

A Snowy Morning, a New Haircut, Homemade Hamburger Buns…and a Few Other Things

A Lively Weekend

Posted by mrssmythe on January 15, 2019 in Crafting, Critters, Week in Review |

We’ve had a very busy past few days! The girls danced in our church’s Medieval/Epiphany festival while CPT A and I both helped behind the scenes. I worked as an usher.
