It's All About The Coop!

We are nearing the end of our home "renovtion." It has been a great experience even though we have literally lived in the middle of it while it was happening. We LOVE our contractor and well, it just won't be the same without him around. The Rooster is out of town at the moment, and when I told him we were about done, he said....."please don't let (our beloved contractor) go until I get back!" They really are great men...the whole crew! BUT, IT IS TIME!
We are thrilled with all that has been done, THRILLED!
One of the funnest things, for me, is the new respectable chicken coop! We have had chickens
for several years, it is so great to have fresh eggs each day. It has also been the "job" of The Rooster to care for the chicken herd. He feeds them, waters them and gathers the eggs daily. He has been doing this for a LONG time, and he does a great job.
He even names them, his favorite, which went to live with The Farmer's Mother, was named
LINDA, and somehow I think that Linda knew she was his favorite, she was a bit stuck up!
back to the coop.
So, my Dad came for a visit a few years ago, and ask what he could do for me during his visit. I quickly said, "build me a chicken house!" I had been envying his for awhile. While my parents lived in Utah they had the most fantastic chickens and the most darling house for them.
And so he set out to build the house. Can I just say
It is red with a tin roof and it is the best. I love it more because he built it for me.
So, I had the dang cute chicken house, but the coop just didn't work.
Last week, I had to leave town for a few days,
And when I came back.......I had a
That contractor that we all love so much....built me an awesome coop!
Nothing fancy....but perfect! I swear that those chickens love it too! They really showed it off the first time I visited their new place.
We have planted a great tree for them, to offer a little more shade. And it is perfection!
I can't wait for The Rooster to come home and check it out.....

On Being A Vegetarian.....

July 21, 2009


This was the phone call I got today from PreShie....
PreShie: "Mom...I have decided to make some changes in my life."
MoM: "Really...that is great!...I think??? what are you talking about?"
PreShie: "I have decided to become a vegetarian!"
MoM: "Wow! a vegetarian, that is really nice"
PreShie: "Yep, I am now a vegetarian, EXCEPT, for
Sunday's and Monday's, what do you think?"
MoM: "PreShie, that is really funny!, everyday except Sunday and Monday?"
PreShie: "Why is that funny?"

I can't say that I have heard of a mid-week vegetarian...but
I have alot of this (above) waiting for her return;)

I Love Her!

It's Been Awhile!

It has been ahwile since I have posted, certainly not because there is nothing
to blog about, life has been very full and very busy. Here is a little update.
Our area is suffering terribly right now. The violence has risen to a level we thought
or atleast we prayed, that we would never see. It has changed things for us.
It has changed "life" for us.
For me, it is important that I choose to see the beauty around me rather
than focus on the obvious struggles we face daily. We are full of
faith. Each day is a new day that is filled with hope.
And so we press forward filled with faith!

The Farmer planted a section of sunflowers for me this year. He knows how much
I love flowers in general, but the sunfowers we grew two years ago brought me sooo much joy!
So it was a little gift from him, this small field of sunflowers and
I love them!
PreShie and the cousins were off to EFY in Thatcher this year. It was thier first year
to attend. Yes, that is a trailer (above) filled with thier needs for the week.
The Boy and I took 5 girls and dropped them off for a fun filled
week at EFY. They really hauled alot of STUFF!
PreShie and her dear friend/roomate, Kyla.
The Boy, surrounded with his beautiful cousins!
The Rooster is attending Scout Camp at the moment. This is his second year,
and The Farmer wasn't able to go this year, so it was pretty sad for
us to say goodbye to the little guy for a week. Thank goodness for amazing
leaders who serve our boys! We are planning on him returing with a load
of merit badges!
