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, […]

Snowbound…and Baking

New Pets, Some Snow, and a Thanksgiving Table

Posted by mrssmythe on November 25, 2018 in Books, Celebrations, Chickens, CPT's Lens, Critters, Old Books, Week in Review |

The Berkshires looked like a Christmas card this past week. CPT A captured some of the beauty while off running errands. Just magical! Not so magical…this broken snowblower: This is what comes of mice in the shed. And, it perplexes me, because I want to be a “humane gardener”. I want to make a place […]
