Exciting plans and hopes ahead!

I know my posting lately has been pretty sporadic, and that is because - as usual - we have been sooo busy!  Work, having company over, church, and just trying to take care of all the critters takes up most of our time.
I love our simple little home!  I would love to make it a 2-story one day but that is a HUGE dream too far out of reach at the moment!
But I am excited for a few things to come...

The fair is coming in a couple of weeks!  We decided not to enter any chickens this year since we are soooo busy, but we are going to go and hopefully find a couple of chickens to bring home to add to our flock.  I am so excited!
Our current chicken coop.
I am also excited about my sister's birthday and camping trip coming up within the next few days and weeks.  I love getting to spend time with my precious family!
The gorgeous spot we camp at!
AND another thing I am excited about?  Possibly some new development in the future!  We are hoping to add onto the concrete slab beside the garage (in the picture below).  We want to build a stall for Bill, another chicken coop, and an area to keep hay and shavings so that we don't have to keep the hay in the garage anymore.  All this will be built with scrap materials and the guys in my family will help us to build it, so we are hoping minimal cost will be involved.
Currently we have to keep our hay in the garage...
P.S. - Grumpy Aura says "hey"!  She looks like she woke up on the wrong side of the bed.  :D

  2. Everything you've been doing is so much more important than blogging. Especially the company over. I love visiting with friends.

    We just went to the state fair last week. So much fun. We've never shown anything. We just like to go to look around, compare our animals to theirs, and eat lots of junk food. :)

    Such a cute house!

    That addition to the barn will be sooo helpful.

  3. I hope you have a blast on your camping trip! :) And your new development for hay and more chickens sounds great and definitely needed for your growing farm.
