These now 13 chicks have been here for five days and only a few complaints from them. Meaning loud chirping….

However, Joe was able to seal up that ceiling above the cabinets this last week. Ohhh you bet I was excited! Not only that but the electrical is complete with means that the wall has a coat of primer too. Although we have not decided what color we are going to paint. hummm, I like the thought of neutral wall, but sounds kinda boring too. I need some more time to think about it.

    Snowy Critters on Homestead Woke up to this Heron looking for a meal along with other Snowy Critters on the Homestead. No it did not stick around very long. I was happy to have caught this one photo. Yes, it really has been this deary here. I need the Sun to pop out for a little bit. And thankful that it did for about an hour.

She (on the left) is a green egg…

    Happy week of Christmas, pretties, furies and food.

    Happy week of Christmas Finally, we made it, Happy week of Christmas. Mooch is putting in his two cents. I was going to skip the tree, BUT he would not have it. Only two slimline trees AND no ornaments. I will find him sitting under them any minute. Mooch decided that I was not moving fast enough and took a nap. While he was napping I was able to get this and several other things done. Including two Christmas trees. A bunch of dusting and lots of sneezing too. haha. Check out last years decorations, here. The face… He wants more attention and I was not spooning out the food…

    It is a Grateful Sunday. Hubby and his critters.

    It is Grateful Sunday. It is that time again, it is Grateful Sunday. Today is about Joe and his love for critters. This morning Joe came home and checked the weather. Saw that the temperature was going to drop. So he brought out the heat lamp an old wool coat. Then he went about to construct a warm house. Using an old storage container and all sorts of other parts. Now, here is the thing. Junior is still deciding what he wants. He likes spending time us, however only one at a time. Junior even chats with us. He even follows me to the chicken coop. Fingers crossed he knows…

    Saying goodbye to Gabby – we will miss you.

    Saying Goodbye to Gabby. A tough decision had to be made today. Joe and I had to say good-bye to sweet Gabby. Joe is devastated but knows that it was the right decision. She has many many buddies over that rainbow bridge. However, saying goodbye to Gabby and ANY pet is always difficult. Which includes her partner in crime and sister from another mother Maggie. These two needed a sister. When Maggie moved in 2009 they hit it off. Immediately!! Maggie has been gone for a few years. I remember how lost poor Gabby was. Now poor White Sox just does not know what to do. Remember we talked the…

    Snow and…

    A couple weeks ago we had a different kind of “kitty” up on the porch sniffing for food. Happy that we pick up the food dishes at night. But this Opossum apparently ventured out after the snow. On my walks this week I have been searching for all the different types of leaves. This Oak leaf is a new one to me. I was SUPER excited to find it. I wonder what I will find next time! Hugs and Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!
