Summer Fun

Posted by mrssmythe on June 26, 2017 in Chickens, Crafting, Critters, Out & About, Seasons, Shopping, Week in Review |

Well, school is officially out for the year, and already the kids are bored. No – I’m exaggerating. But it has been an abrupt shift from readings and lectures to long expanses of free time.

The Week in Review

Posted by mrssmythe on September 4, 2016 in Chickens, Crafting, Critters, Garden, Toys, Week in Review |

We’ve enjoyed cooler temperatures here this past week – a very welcome change. Just this evening, Ginger said, “it’s so nice to be able to sleep under the covers at night!” And, I absolutely agree.
