World of Color

The leaves are just starting to change!!  I love this time of year!
The trees just near the chicken coop:
Oh and speaking of color...
Isn't he gorgeous?  Looks just like he did the day I brought him home from the fair!
Arwen being too cute not to photograph.
And speaking of breakfast.... someone was a little irritated with me being late to breakfast this morning.  Aura is letting me have it!
I know the video quality needs help and my porch is a mess (thank you chickens) but I thought this was just too cute and funny not to share.

Have a great day LBL readers!!  And thanks for all of your sweet comments.  :)

Corn Maze!

Contrary to popular belief, I have not fallen off the face of the earth.  Yet.  Haha!  I recently accepted a new job position at the company I work for (I work from home which is awesome) and it has kept me VERY busy.  Busy is good and means more money, but I have also had a hard time keeping my blogging schedule stable.  I have also been having some scary computer problems.  Bear with me!

I have tried about five times in the last week to upload this post... let's see if we can get it to work today!


We had great fun going to the local corn maze with some friends from church last weekend.  This was my first maze I'd ever been too, and I think the experience was quite good!

First I admired these wildflowers.  So pretty!

To go into the maze, we had to watch a video.  It was pretty hilarious (and cheesy).
The maze itself was... interesting.  I spent my time just walking and helping watch the other kiddos from church to make sure they didn't wander off (it is incredibly easy to do I learned)!  My sister and some other less directionally-challenged people than myself lead the way...

And finally got us out after about an hour.  Not bad!
Next we got to visit with some incredibly cute animals...

And now I am desperately wanting a llama...
So cute!  That does it for our corn maze adventures.  Hope you enjoyed it!

The Best Zucchini Bread


Remember the giant zucchini I picked a back a while ago?
Well I ended up getting another one.  I had to figure out what to do with these zucchinis fast!  Then I remembered that my Mom made zucchini bread some time back that was DELICIOUS.  She got it out of a church cookbook we have, and I am gonna share it with you because I am nice like that.  Heehee!
Everything you need.
Zucchini Bread

- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup oil
- 1 Tbsp. vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 2 cups unpeeled, grated zucchini
- 1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:  Mix ingredients in order given.  Bake in 2 sprayed loaf pans 1 hour at 350 degrees.
Grated zucchini.
I just can't stay away from this stuff.  If it is around, I eat it until it is gone.  It is so moist and delicious!!

Fall is Coming to Little Bitty Life

Today was incredibly rainy... I am not sure how many inches we got in all but it was at least 2-3 inches.  But towards the end of the day, the sun popped out for just a bit which made it a perfect time to take pictures.  You see, tonight it is getting very cold for the first time this season and the leaves will be turning and the grass will be dying!  So I wanted to get the last of summer's green leaves and plants while I could.  I know tomorrow is not the technical "first day of fall", but for us it sure will be in terms of colder temps!
Some leaves are already starting to slowly turn.
Is he not just precious??  Love this pony!!
Sweet doggies.
Someone was having a bad hair day from the rain.  Heehee.
Someone else was in a picture mood today!
Grumpy geese followed me everywhere, protesting.
Gyppie in the trees.
Gyppie feeling good in the cool air!

I hope my roses last a while longer.
Sweet pony ears.
The grand finale of warm weather ended with a rainbow.  Fitting, I think.
Oh, and one other thing.  I have been wanting to try some essential-oil scented goat's milk soap for ages now!  I finally picked some up at the natural food store today.  It is citrus-mint scented.... such a soothing smell!!  I can't wait to use it!
Have a great rest of your weekend... and if it is going to get chilly where you are, stay warm!
