Here they are!

The first cute fuzzy thing I wanted to show you are the new baby chickens we got. They are Golden Comets, (hens). We got 12 of them, yes, 12...fuzzy lil balls of fluff that are just sooo cute and adorable, except for the mess they make, lol. We have them in a blue tote lined with newspaper, but it won't be long before they have to have something bigger.

Tell me the truth, have you ever seen anything as cute as these lil darlins'?

Except maybe these sweeties! Baby bunnies! We purchased 3, 1 buck and 2 does...but we probaly won't name any babies they have, because my husband wanted to raise them to (enter gasp here) eat them....I know, I know how could you eat those cute sweet furry little things? I have never eaten rabbits, but I will try it, as long as I don't have to kill them...

I mean, look at how cute they are...this is the male bunny, I had a picture of the female up, but I don't know what blogger did with it...It just now disappeared...
But I will go for now...I will write more later...and get some more pics up...I want to show you my forsythia in bloom, and a picture of my grape hyacinth bean vines, and my easter flowers that I thought were dead... more on that later...and also show you the big yellow thing...but I have hungry family waiting on soup beans, sauerkraut and weiners, cornbread, and salmon patties...come on over for supper!

So So Sorry...

I have neglected my blog...but never fear! This afternoon, after I get home from work, I will post and have pictures of all the new additions we have made to our lil farm up the holler! Furry things, fuzzy things, big yellow things, and hard gray lumpy things. Betcha can't wait! I will be home around 3...

Our first egg from my chickens!

You might think I am a little bit off my rocker, but here they are! Pictures of the first egg from our chickens! I was so proud and happy when my boys brought it to me! I almost cried...not quite, just so glad that I didn't buy defunct chickens! It will go into scrambled eggs tomorrow morning for Sunday breakfast...mmmm good!

Well, my big guy has the flu. Our sweet assistant pastor's daughter is a nurse practitioner at the medical clinic in Louisa where the boys doctor at. She was able to see him, and they did the nasal swab test for flu, sure enough, Strain B. which she said wasn't as bad as strain A. So she wrote out prescriptions for him for Tamiflu, and then she wrote them out for everyone else in the house also. Insurance covered the boys, but not mine and Eugene's. Our was $94 per prescription. I did not buy it. I hope and pray we don't get the flu, but if we do, I will probaly be glad to pay for the medicine. lol Everyone pray for us, that we do not get sick...Eugene has no sick days at work, and I do not want to be sick...

Sick children, has to be Monday

See what cute children I used to much they loved one another? The bigger one in the photo is Conley, my oldest son, he was 3 in this pic, and the little one is my Middle boy, Kenneth. He was 18 months old, I was pregnant with the baby, Josseph when I took this picture. Cute, weren't they?
Well, I can sure tell that this is Monday! My oldest is home, sick with what web md tells me may just be the FLU! My son, the healthy one, the one that usually eats like a horse, the one that never gets in his bed right now, knocked out on Tylenol cold & Flu nighttime medicine, until I can get a call in to his doctor, so I can get him in there. I hope it is just a cold, because with one child in this house who has asthma, we DON'T need the FLU virus circulating...luckily, my asthma sufferer is the one who has the FLU shot every year, because after 3 yearrs of hospital stays from the FLU, I don't want to go thru that again. So everyone, please pray for my boy, and my others and the treeman and me that it will be just a cold, ( but I doubt it, with a fever, body aches, sneezing, coughing, eyes hurting, headache, I doubt it) and that no one else gets it.

March Serenade

March Day Serenade
The frosty days are put to rest
As winter turns to spring
We cast an eye up to the sky
To what this month will bring.
A day when dark clouds gently brew
With not one leaf a stirring
When thunder peals as lightning cracks
A raging storm, enduring.
As shifting winds blow here and there
Without a rhyme or reason
When Ides of March come out to play
A turbulent sort of season.
We've waited long for nature's song
For freshness in the air
For rainy days and purple haze
For breezes sweet and fair.
A time of kites and windy days
A time when dreams are made
A time when God blows forth a kiss
A March day serenade.

Happy March! And may Spring be right around the
