Chickens and A Coop


This is the Entry Side. The barn doors are for cleaning and playing with the girls. The box with the white roof is actually the nesting boxes. The roof will have metal on it and lifts up for easy Egg grabbing.
To the Left of the boxes there will be an Entry Door into the enclosed run (its not enclosed yet ;)

Its not quite finished yet in this picture.
It still needs the chicken wire and the guy off the roof.
The Girls love looking out their window, And the Dogs Love Looking in.
Meet the Girls:
Bubba: The large black one, She is an Australorp. So Nice.
Lucy: The Yellow one.
Rosie: You cant see her, She is smaller than everyone else and is hiding under the others.
Banty: The silver laced Wyandotte (small black one in the front)
Edna:? Martha: ?
I dont know the difference between Edna and Martha. Those are Colbys Chickens.
He said " They are Ladies, and they need Lady names" So he picked them all but Bubba.
These are the Ladies and their Barn.

I Love it when the little Crocus poke their little head up.

This year we have snow, so its so much more obvious when it happens. This one is so cute, with its purple little stripes.
It reminds me of how God gives us strength.
How we are so fragile, yet have the strength to push up through the harsh world.
I am always amazed at how much we can endure, and make it through.

This is one of my many Lilacs.

They are my favorite.
I am looking for a really dark purple one.
Anyone got one? I would love a start off of it.

Here are the first of my new raised beds..Emergence you say? Well, its smack dab in the middle of my Lawn (well off the the side). The lawn that I don't want to mow anymore. I want to spend the time, energy and water on raising food. There is a good book you should read on this subject. Its called "Food not Lawn" . Hopefully we get some sun to get rid of the snow. I would really like to finish the new garden.

Happy Spring...

Giving Lessons

We are going through Dave Ramsey's FPU right now.
All I can say is Wow....I have learned a couple of things.

#1 We have never Tithed. Apparently, we always Tipped God.. Only giving what was left after the bills were paid.

Well the other night at 2am I was up praying, and God let me have it.
Hard Core, Loud and In my face...
"Don't go against me on this one"

I brought this up at FPU in our group. Then one of the people said to me!
"Your wallet is always the last thing you give to GOD..

I was so at peace with that statement.. So when I got the taxes I made sure that I gave the correct amount before I payed the bills.

#2 I can and will overcome all obstacles with the help of my Savior.
I am so thankful for this lesson.
