A Week of Homestead Photos April 24th - 30th

We did a lot of yard work this week, getting things picked up and improved for the coming warmer months. We filled in holes, added mulch, planted new plants, and over all I am exhausted! But I am so excited we also put in a blackberry patch!

We faced another new chicken issue when Ester decided to push too hard while laying and prolapsed her vent. If it isn't one thing around here it is another! Talk about a stressful situation, but I am happy to report all is well.

Since doing yard improvements, it has become the hang out spot for humans and critters alike. We enjoyed many a days outside with out critter friends. I think we are all looking forward to summer, with warmer weather and lots of treats!

So what made me smile this week?


Hanging with my bestest chicken girl, Goldie. I love this hen!


The littlest country kid LOVES Mr. Bill (well until he gets attacked) and Mr. Bill would just like to annihilate the littlest country kid and is so over being chased. Well Bill made a fatal mistake.... After attacking the littlest country kid's leg, biting the crap out of him, he just stood there looking at the littlest country kid like "See, I will eat you!!!" Well the littlest country kid just bent down and picked him up! And then he made Bill go for a ride!!!! Oh poor, poor Bill. Maybe someday Bill will realize the littlest country kid just wants to be his best friend.


My baby lilac bush I planted. I can't wait till it is big enough to bloom!


Ester was not thrilled by the hospital pen or her extended stay in the
house after she prolapsed her vent, but she managed to improve and
not prolapse again, so I am a happy girl.


While Ester might still be upset with me for the whole hospital
pen thing, it was good to see her back in the yard with her
friends, even if it was in my new hosta bed.


Ducky pool party!!!!!! These guys always crack me up.


The littles aren't so little anymore and are spending all day outside.
They will soon be joining the big girls.

Saturday was the oldest country kid's once a month autism spectrum
group at the zoo. He had a great time learning how to draw a red panda.


The littlest country kid got to meet a rat and was a little excited as you can see!


And who says a peacock has to be bright and colorful to be handsome?
This gentleman was breath taking to watch.

Remember to take time out of your busy day to find your own things to make you smile!
