A Fun Surprise…

We have been so tired and so extremely worn out.  When Randy went out to start chores this evening this is what he found:

Three baby Buff/Rhode Island Red crosses.  We took her pile of eggs and put in the separate cage Randy set up for her, and she was able to hatch out one more chick for a total of four.  It added to our chores, but we were so excited.  Our buffs have really struggled this summer in the heat.  The are free-range and can go wherever they please, but are still struggling to find a place cool enough to survive.  If these are hens they will make nice replacements for the ones we have lost.

Then for fun and even more cuteness.  Here are 3 of our 10 kitties.



Our big mama, Roxy, and no she is not expecting and gets offended if you ask!

And not a kitty or a kitty lover, but just as cute as he can be…Koal.

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
