Easy. Geese. She I was a kid at the park, those stinkin’ things chased after me when I went down to the lake to look at the water. Oddly, they don’t scare me. But that might changed if it happened again as an adult.

What about you? Been chased by an animal that isn’t a dog? Let me know in the comments.

Sunday Morning Musings….

December can be a rough month. Holidays can be stressful. Remember to take care of yourself, even a few minutes a day can help. You are important. You matter. You make a difference. Take care of YOU.

Ahhhhh……yes…..send me those seed catalogs!! I need something to look forward to as I plan my Spring garden.

Do you get seed catalogs in the mail? Do they just make your day?

While we have a bit more space around the house than this, we do have a few “extra” plants that still need to go in the ground. Okay, maybe a lot. (Never mind those 5 cases of tulip and daffodil bulbs that arrived a couple of weeks ago) Don’t judge. I have big plans for Spring.

Have you already planned your garden for 2024?

Not dissing the sales, but truly, what do I really NEED?

Family, health, home. Bonuses? How about some fruit trees, seeds, a lovely fenced area for goats, goats for that fenced area, more chickens……ahhhh….those things speak to me. A new TV? Nahhh

What would you put on your list?

Sunday Morning Musings…..

I love this holiday time. But I also have memories of when this time of year was painful, hard, isolating.

Many of you may not know this about me, but i single parented my five kids from the time my youngest two (twins) were 10 months old. Their father typically had them on holidays. One year, in particular, I cooked a thanksgiving meal for just me. And while I was a very busy, exhausted, overwhelmed parent who definitely needed a break, the acute loneliness of that moment will sit in my mind forever.

So, if you are struggling with “holiday cheer” or the sight of families loving their time together, know that I see you, I understand. I’ve been there.

Indeed we do.  From the thrill of seeing the order hit the inbox to the excitement of packing the order, knowing I get t...

Indeed we do.

From the thrill of seeing the order hit the inbox to the excitement of packing the order, knowing I get to share my passion with others, owning a small business, risks and all, is worth every ounce of energy.

Those orders you place put food on the table, pay for a child’s or grandchild’s soccer cleats, provide nourishment for the flock, and so much more.

So when you see that small business and think to yourself you could get it for less on one of those big online retailers, think for a second how you could truly be a blessing to someone’s family instead.

And now back to my happy dance!

First day of Thanksgiving leftovers ~ Turkey Noodle Casserole. Mr. F&F has never met a casserole he didn’t like, so I figured this would go over well.

I love that I had all the ingredients in the pantry and fridge, so didn’t need to go into town. That’s usually at least a 90 minute excursion, between the drive and the time in the store.

Did you have any thanksgiving leftovers?

Although this is how I picture it in my head, and AI showed that well, in reality, my chickens are NOT that patient. They see me coming and start running and clucking and even jumping up to get the first of the treats. And honestly, when they see me and get so excited, it brings me a special kind of joy. This, in my mind, kind of explains chicken math. Right?!?

Does your flock come running when they spot you headed their way?

I’ll go first….stuffing. It’s the stuffing. I just can’t wrap my head around mushy bread chunks with sausage and raisins. Ick. Sorry, not sorry.

I’m actually convinced a chicken mama wrote this. Look at all those wonderful rooster traits! Okay, maybe a rooster HELPED with the writing of this description….just maybe.

Our F&F coop has several wonderful boys that all get along and take good care of the flock. They truly are the best….sweet, gentle, and put the hens first when it comes to treats and such.

Do you have a rooster in your flock? What is he like?

Black Friday is in just over a week….so just in case you drew my name in the Secret Santa gift exchange, now you know what I want.

Of course, you could pretty much give me chicks any time of the year. I don’t need a special occasion….because chicken math.

What’s on your gift list this year?

This will be my chickens in another month or so.

Fun little piece of info though, chickens roam free in Hawaii, more specifically on the Island of Kauai. I love seeing them running around. Such pretty little birds.

I’m currently on the Big Island of Hawaii and the wild chicken population seems to be very small. However, wild goats are all over.

Another reason to love the islands.

Do your chickens like the snow? Mine avoid it and prefer to stay in the covered area of the run or inside the coop on the cold, snowy days.

As we head into holiday baking season, a reminder to please label those raisin cookies so those of us who don’t like surprises can enjoy our chocolate chips.

Are you a raisin lover? I have a daughter who loves raisins so much, she buys them in bulk and eats from the big box when snacking. She never had competition for the raisin box growing up with four siblings. But now that she has kids, her 3 year old asks her to “share” (meaning “I’m taking these raisins, Mama”).

Back to my chocolate chips. If there will be any surprises, I want the to be biting into macadamia nuts in my cookies. That’s where it’s at.

What’s your favorite holiday cookie?

It gets dark early here in the PNW. And of course, the sun doesn’t come up until later in the morning. Not complaining though, because we get beautiful, long summer days. But still struggling a bit with the dark. And of course, with that, the coop egg production is almost zero. I don’t mind giving them the break their bodies need though.

How long are the days where you live? Do you do anything special to deal with the “winter blues”?

In case anyone (hint, hint Mr. F&F!) is doing their shopping already……

Truly though, we don’t exchange gifts at Christmas. We both have more than we need and enjoy giving much more than receiving.

But…..if he wants to add more acreage to our little piece of heaven here, I won’t say no.

Oh my goodness, look at what came in the mail!!! What a wonderful Christmas gift. My flock will be SOOO happy.

I first learned about from products in my monthly subscription Mega Box. LOVED them. Two of my favorite products are their Coop To Garden compost accelerator and their Coop Recuperate coop refresher. And now, they’ve just released their Coop Recuperate Orange Spice. I can’t wait to get this in the coop. Check them out. And stay tuned for a reel of the coop getting its refresh of Coop Recuperate! I just wish you could SMELL this! Amazing, just amazing.

On a lighter note….I’m definitely the first one. Mr. F&F on the other hand, prides himself on getting to the gas station with UNDER 10 MILES LEFT….Sir! Are you trying to trigger my extreme anxiety? Seriously? Stop that! We have passed 12 gas stations already…..stop this vehicle!

Haha…anyway, on to the rest of my day.

Which one are you?

Every year….every stinkin’ year. You’d think I would learn that if I leave a clean horizontal surface, someone (Mr. F&F…haha) will want to put something on it. Me, well I love clean countertops, with nothing on them. It soothes me.

Do you have someone in your house who can’t stand to have an open space on a beautiful clean counter?

Definitely not for the faint of heart. Farming is hard. It’s so rewarding. But hard. The days when you have to say goodbye to an animal you’ve lovingly raised, fed, cared for….those are the toughest days. But I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
