I love taking pictures of my chickens.

This is my camera hog right here.  She is up in my business the whole time I am in the fence.

Make it up

I have a few things that I make that are one thing or another thing and I combine them into another.  If Boomer or Madigan haven’t heard of them they think I am some brilliant mad scientist…here are three examples.

Pizza Pasta–all the stuff you would put on pasta, mushrooms, onions, pepperoni, cheese but tossed in pasta.

Chili Soup–Madigan loves when I spoon off some of the watery top of chili when it’s cooking down and give it to her as soup.  So instead of that, I make a whole batch of chili soup which is just tomato juice with onions, peppers, garlic and chili powder.

Sundae Cones–everyone’s favorite dessert.  I take GF ice cream cones, drizzle hot fudge around the rim and inside the cone.  Put ice cream in layers with hot fudge with some hot fudge on top.  Sundae cones!


the babies






Justin Jenn and the kids moved into a new place.  And being the person I am decided I needed to visit on what might have been the busiest day of the year.  School starts tuesday for them, a friend of Abby’s had to get to the airport and of course, there is still unpacking to do.  We got there around noon and left after 6.  For me the time FLEW by, with talking, laughing and cooking.  It’s amazing seeing what smart, considerate, kind people they are.  The kids are happy and really isn’t that all we want!

I saw my nephew and husband do a good deed when an elderly woman walking her dog lost control when another dog walked by.  She fell and the dogs were fighting.  Justin went to deal with the dogs and Boomer went to help the woman who fell.  I was impressed with how each of them handled the situation.  I of course did nothing by make sure the kids didn’t get around the dogs fighting.
