OPther things mascara ( muscovey) hatched out a total of 16 babies, two in which are yellow, so I am hoping that they will be solid white, in which is hard to find in this neck of the woods.
We have had water problems as well, had to lay new pipe into the house and and total new pipe in the bathroom and quite an ordeal to say the least. We have boulders in the yard from the digging.
so , to be so short but I am at the libary using the computer and there is a time limit!

Me and the girls went to Seymour last night to see the fireworks and watch a concert before the fireworks.....The band was called bad habit and they were good....It is a rock band...not the hard stuff....the rock from the 70`s-80`s and few songs from today ( country, like miranda lambert), they put on a good show and I would like to see them again, sometime. It is nice to hear the music that your grew up with. and their sure was alot of children around....then I thought this place needed a clown and balloons,....mmmmmm I should have thought and been a clown there, maybe next year.
The fireworks were good, the youngest was getting impatient though waiting for it to get dark enough for them....but fun was had by all, even the oldest daughter , even though she won`t admit it.

The garden so needs to be weeded . I do have Zucchini on one of the plants as well as few green tomatoes, I did see one cherry tomato thinking about turning yesterday. We have gotten some rain, but I still have to water the garden everyday , it seems like and I have gotten into some poison ivy along the way of picking.And pretty soon will be having some green beans as well.
Lavender`s 13 babies are doing fairly well, with a variety of color in that bunch ( chocolate and white, Black and white and grey and white) I think I might keep a grey and white , just to see what color in tunrs out to be. Mascara is setting now and I think there might be a chicken egg or two under her, I really can`t tell as she is setting under some boards and as with the snakes being out I ain`t to crazy about moving things around to see.
Well, that is about it for the day!!!!Everyone out there have a blessed day in which God has made!!!!!!!!
Thursday, June 16, 2011
Here is a couple of pictures of Lavender`s baby ducks for this year. She hatched a total of 13. The father of these is Chocolate. It surprised me she hatch so many of them considering that Chocolate was gone a few weeks before I noticed she started setting. And yea , no bouts with a snake this year!!!!!

They had blackberries as well on sale, but I still have some in the freezer from last year , so I am planning on making a fresh batch of blackberry jelly as well. I might throw in a few dewberries though, as they are beginning to ripen , which means the wild blackberries will be soon be ripen and that means picking blackberries and selling them again, along with some jelly. I soo love to pick wild blackberries....the thorns and the chiggers are sooo fun to deal with. My tame blackberries are just now blooming and forming blackberries on them. I only have about 5 plants of them. The tame ones might be a little bigger , but the wild ones win out in taste to me.
I plan on making a few more varieties as well to enter into the fair. I wish they had an other category , as I would love to enter my root beer jelly, it is a winner at least for my youngest , who won`t eat any other jelly on her pb and j sandwich. i need to see how many more jars I have left.
I am being entertained by her at her this time , playing big sis`s guitar, at least playing with it, lolol. Ok , she is not really playing it like a guitar , but like a drum, lol. It is so nice to be entertained.

Heard of a new ice cream flavor , I don`t want to try...Locust, uhhhh Yuck, but I wonder if they make the noise when you bite into the ice cream...It is made with real locust, lol.
Today is water day at the youngest summer school, I wasn`t gonna send this year , but the oldest can get a high school credit out of the way, so I did send both......that seems so weird saying the oldest is in high school ...where has the time gone, it seems like yesterday she was beginning to walk. she had the choice to take English or Science...she chose Science , thinking experiments and it might be fun...she is enjoying it and has heard that the English has homework, so far the science has no homework.
On the garden , the tomatoes in the bed frame are doing great, I even have a little cherry tomato , green, but there is one on there. I have beans planted there as well and they are doing great. One head of cabbage is doing great the other three not so well, One head is in one bed and the other three are in another bed...I sure can tell the difference ....The dirt in the one head cabbage is miracle grow dirt that I put in there a few years ago...the other bed was just regular dirt., that we bought from a friend who was selling some. The squash is coming up nicely, not blooming yet, that`s all I got to get in so far, the rain put an damper on things,...now every thing is drying up and we do need rain, and I have started watering at night everything in the garden. The tame blackberries are blooming and have a few blackberries on them , that are green of course, the wild ones down the road has quite a few green ones. I guess that is enough of rambling for now.

Of course, Boss doesn`t let me know where his hens are laying at......lol, just the chicken hens.

Letting the child make this decision is crazy, ....Let`s see should a child make the decision whether it wants to learn to read or write....or should it make the decision to climb on top of the roof and jump off..... I am just a little confused on this can anyone out there help me out on this....?

Today at school was the annual talent show and I know who won in my mind...hands down, but then again she does sing in branson and has sung at other places as well. The winner will be announced tomorrow during the awards program that the school holds every year. I will try and post the winner the contest tomorrow and If I think they deserve to be winner. Each grade level the teachers hand out awards to students who have done well thru out the year.
The American Cancer society`s jr cattle baron ball was fun that we went to Sunday. the youngest got to ride Missouri Foxtrotters, of course with the oldest daughter...was upset , as she didn`t win any prizes, as the prizes were only for the children with cancer and not for the siblings, in which in some aspects I think is unfair , but I understand to a point. It is not only hard for the child with cancer, but for the other siblings as well, because the main focus is on the child with cancer and alot of times the siblings get left out, and that is all I am saying. I could go on, but I won`t.
I told the a few teachers, that anytime they need a clown and I am not doing anything....I could be one,....I sooo enjoyed it!!!!!!

Old style iris
This peony was just dying to it`s picture taking.
The above iris came from my grandma`s yard a few years ago.
I thought everyone might like to see some pretty irises in bloom, I have several different colors of these beautiful flowers and Would like someday to have some planted in red, white and blue in the form of the American Flag. I do need to find a red one, I know I have a deep red but I am wanting a red , red one and a blue one as well. I have the white covered to do this.
Monday, May 9, 2011
Saturday went to a few yard sales at the Seymour city wide, listen to music at the Seymour`s first music festival.....the band long way from nowhere, at least I think that was the band`s name...they was pretty good. I did find me a red iris at one of the yard sales.
Happening this week, more field trip, imax theatre, cardinal game, talking rocks and the spring concert and a meeting on the phone to find out what test concluded for the youngest. And of course for the weekend...the Junior Cattlebarions ball and getting geared up for graduation

I took my walk today with mom and checked out some irises down the road , along side the road, found some more purple and some brown/ red in color ones. and planted these as well. I so love irises and would like to get some of every color. i would like to plant some in the shape of the American Flag Red , White and blue, I think it would be so pretty. I have not seen no red ones though, or blues one either. mom is suppose to get a magazine with nothing but irises in there , so I am waiting for that.
My oldest daughter is in Jefferson City today on a school trip, touring the capital of our lovely state. Every year the local school takes the eighth graders to tour the capital. This year is the final trip for the eighth grade classes to go, from now on it will be only the fourth graders, in which they went this year as well.
We still have not seen any out of our little Chihuahua, Princess, who has been missing since last Wednesday. I think that somebody picked her up or the coyotes got her, since we do have a coyote problem here . we soo miss her. But I will still keep my eyes open for her, maybe one day I will know what happened to her . She disappeared just like her daddy, Jake, who was really old and didn`t have any teeth. Well I am go for now... and enjoy some more of this sunshine...what a beautiful day !!!!!!

I soo enjoyed myself or rather my clown side enjoyed as well as the kindergardeners in the area school. I handed out rainbow seeds and donut seeds as well as bown-E`s and Black and Pink -I`s and of course a couple of black-I -P`s and a couple of blue -J`s, the blue -J`s flew away and the kindergardeners caught them,besides making a few balloon animals, mostly dogs. The children figured out who I was a couple of days later,...they went around saying you were the clown, you were the clown and you handed out skittles for rainbow seeds and cereal for donut seeds. I sooo enjoyed myself. I also visited some of the other classes in clown. I told the kindergarden teachers any time they needed a clown , just let me know.
Our Princess, Chihuahua has been missing since we got back from St Louis, We think one of several things happened..someone picked up up, coyotes got her, or someone hit her with a car, or she had a seizure and is gone. We have looked everywhere and calling in on the local radio station`s trading post and still no luck in anyone seeing her.
Next week will be busy week, the oldest has a field trip about every day except maybe Monday.

My grandmother passed away this week and her funeral in Saturday, I will so miss her. She has been in a nursing home for a couple of years and had Alzheimer's. She would have been 91 years young. She always made the best biscuits and the best gravy that went along with those biscuits. I have family coming in that I have not seen in a coon`s age, as they live in Kansas and cousins that I don`t remember seeing since they were little things. Well, I am bout to cry , so I will go on this blog and happy things.
Today, I will be clowning at my girls school...Balloon animals ( the simple kind right now) and of course being silly as well

And , here I was thinking about getting me some more plants... blueberry and blackberry bushes, maybe some raspberry. I do have some blackberry bushes, but they are not budding out as of yet, some of the wild ones around the area where I picked last year are budding out, as the pear tree where I picked some pears up last year. I sure hope the cold don`t snap them, but it will. I will let you go for now as I need to go pick up the one daughter from school. The younger one stayed home today , as she wasn`t feeling up to par this morning...

I really don`t know what color this rooster would be called either, he is rooster for the frizzle pen and throws alot of babies colored up like him. He is out of a frizzle rooster and a red cochin hen. The frizzle rooster was exactly colored just like him. this hen is very small and is laying some.

I planted a cabbage plant last year that the cabbage worm got, hopefully this year will be different. This will be the first year with turnips, so I will see how that goes.
I think I will have to add another bed or two in order to get some tomato plants as well., of course I want to plant some peppers and corn. I don`t think I will put the corn in a raised bed this year. I put corn in one last year and it didn`t do that good for me, so I am gonna try something different this year.
I need to get the incubators up and going as well, but I just can`t get motivated this year, maybe it`s because the hens are in full swing as of yet. The muscovies have not started laying at least not that I am aware of , I have not found any nest and I have been looking and watching them alittle. The cayuga ducks have not laid as of yet either. On the chicken side of things, the welsummers have not laid yet, the silkies( one pair) I get an egg every other day, some of the cochins are laying as well, but not all. A few of these hens are a few years old, so I do need to hatch a few of these out and keep and not rehome them either that or try and get some more hens in the colors I am looking for; red, buff,golden lace,birchen ....oh heck I like all the colors of cochins. I sooo love the cochin breed. I do have one standard cochin ,black in color with no rooster as of yet.

We also got a dress for the oldest daughter to graduate in....oooo it don`t seem possible for her to be graduating from the eighth grade this year. It seems like yesterday I was watching her graduate from kindergarden. The graduating class girls have to wear a formal dress to graduate in, she wanted a long dress , but we got a short one and is very pretty to say the least. Now just to find shoes to go with it. I was gonna borrow a dress from a neighbor , but I thought I might have to dart it or something as the neighbor`s daughter is alittle bigger then my oldest daughter, who is small for her age and smallest in her class. I am sooo Glad I don`t have to dart her dress I got her, I wouldn`t know where to begin....as I am not that good at sewing ....at least I don`t think I am as regards to clothes. I was not looking forward to darting the dress. So I opt to let her get her own dress and of course the yougest picked out a dress ....just to try on..... definitly not ready for her to do this.
The traffic was not that bad considering how bad it does get in branson, the tourist season has really started as of yet, not to say their wasn`t alot of people there, because there was. Branson tourism just isn`t in full swing as of yet.
Now the oldest just got her graduation trips , one to Jefferson city and the another one to Silver Dollar City, in which don`t know they will be. i am not looking forward to the oldest daughter going to high school, then next it will be getting married. Hopefully that is a long way down the road from now.........
We had fun with our trip to branson and it was such a beautiful day.

The quilt projects are quite a few, let`s see, their is the buck-a-block which I am doing in both colors ( mauve and white, purple and white); then the barn quilt from last years quilt shop hop ( I am embroidering it the blocks) this quilt has also fall leaf block as well, another barn quilt , in which ewach block has ribbon embroidery and applicate things on it, their is a block for each month and I am making two of them and am only on block March; a rabbit quilt that is embrodiered. I know alot of projects, I will get them done one of these days. The buck-a-block is a month by month project that my mom and I signed up for from the ozark quilt shop , sew simple. these buck-a-blocks are so simple to do and easy as well, they use thangles, in which is but half-triangles patterns. Using thangles are a easy way to half-triangles.
The shop hop barn quilt is very time-consuming as the I have to trace the barn pattern onto the fabric and then embrodery it in the colors of my choosing, I will be working on this when the youngest has the next doctor`s appointment in April, in which it will be all day appointment, she will be having a neuropysh test, she has been having trouble with comprehending after she reads a chapter book ( a book with chapters in it). This is a late effect from the chemo that she took.
Anyway I will probably be working on the other barn quilt as well, as February and March are ready for the embroidery part of the block. So I think I will get off of here and get busy with my rainy day projects

This is the building for the miniature horse that it up lifted, the entrance to the building was dent in and lifted up.
The side of the building , that is part of the quacker pen, that moved the chain link panel
Another view of the building, the cage on top was not there yesterday it was by the garage
The emergency mangement was here to acess the damage and according to them we were the only ones with storm damage, ain`t that special...it is so nice to be loved by mother nature...not.
Wednesday, March 2, 2011
she was sick with some bug monday , so, lots of homework, the youngest brought it home yesterday for her and she did do some of it. The youngest was complaing about her stomach hurting last night , but no fever, of course she always complains about her stomach hurting, I think the chemo might have done something there, but don`t know for sure. As when the last time we went to st louis , we addressed that issued and the doctors informed us that other children as well complained about stomach pain, so that is why I think that is the reason.
One of silkies have been blessing me with an egg every other day and now so far, so has my oldest daughter`s chicken , Indian( a mix, pink egg of sorts). I will be glad when the others start laying as well. I have been thinking about getting my incubator up and running again , but that`s as far as I have gotten on that project. i have been kinda watching the muscovey ducks as it looks like they could be laying soon or maybe now. I think this year , I will be on the lookout to find me another drake, not related to these as well, I would like to find solid white one. I would alos like to get me some more Cochins and some more welsummers, but we will see what I can find along those lines. The swap meets will be starting up soon, Fordland swap meet starts the end of the month.
Sunday, February 27, 2011
Last year Me and mom took the quilt shop hop in one day , this year we will be doing it in two days, nine shops in one day is alot of traveling. As was last year their will be a quilt pattern specific to the shop hop. Lat year is was leaves and a barn pattern to embroidery, in which I don`t have done....I have been working on the barn the last few days. I have not done any of the peiced blocks as of yet. This year the I will only get the pattern for the quilt as the kit with the fabric varies from shop to shop and money is low this as I am not working except as a mom to two beautiful girls. I will try and post some pictures of the shops .Last year each shop did the their blocks different, this year it will be one big quilt and just broken up into nine sections as I understand it.
One of the silkie hens have been given me an egg every other day, I just wish the others would take the hint, then the incubators can get up and running again. I have two silkie hens, not of show quaility , but pretty none the less. I have several hens with red combs. The muscovey hens are scoping out areas to start laying, at least the ones the free range. I might try this year and get a new drake, as most of the hens except maybe one our chocolates offspring.

It just saddens me that families have to get together on these occasions and that we don`t stay in touch with one another. I know a few are on Facebook , and I do keep in contact with them that way, but it is not the same as seeing them face to face. I know we have our own lifes , but we should connect with the past and the families that are a part of that or show pictures of other people that were once family and no longer are , such as divorces that took place, as those people were part of the family once and for whatever reason they are no longer part, but still are thought of, if everybody knows what I am talking about , I am sure that every family has those members in the family that go from one person to another. but then again that would be arkward for some of those involved .
I have so enjoyed the weather that last few days....70s even though the wind has been blowing like crazy. Oh the March winds, ok I know it is February, but I wonder if we are getting March winds in February will be getting April showers in March, I wonder.
Tuesday, February 15, 2011
I have been enjoying the sunny weather, I have tooken a walk the last few days and basked in the sunshine, it is so nice to get out of the house and enjoy the nice weather . My hubby is just waiting to hear the peeper frogs at night. I have not had a siting of a robin as of yet , but I am looking for them. Everybody have a glorouis day that the GOD has made...mud and all

Funny site , I just have to tell...The muscovey hens have been flying around the yard and when they landed they would slide alitttle before this last bout of white stuff came....so funny. They hang around under the bird feeder and pick up what the bird knock out...Their is one bird that knocks out alot of feed, kicks out what he don`t like you know.....A couple of the hens did think about hitting the suet feeders , but never could figure out how to get to them,lolol
The Chickens don`t like this white stuff either, some of refuse to come out. Some of them I notice the combs are getting red....which means eggs soon.....
I hope everyone has a good day and to those that have snow, I hope alot of melting goes on...
Monday, February 7, 2011
I think it is gonna be a muddy mess when this stuff melts off and the girls porbably won`t go back to school until next week.
Our female cat or rather my oldest cat is searching for a fella ..I guess she don`t like Spunky, at least that is what we discovered last night ...a big beautiful grey and white cat was here visiting her. oh the thoughts of spring with kittens...........of course baby chicks and ducks. I don`t have my incubator up and running as of yet...I am thinking sometime in March , I may get it up and running. The first part of March is the next quilt shop hop..The same shops as last year..we are planning to take two days this year as of right now. Last year we didn`t win a thing ,but it was fun. This year will be the third year in doing the shop hop, just like last year their will be a quilt pacific to the hop...no barns this time, I think it will be a piece quilt, but not for sure as I have not seen the quilt, just the fabric, In which I don`t remember the colors,.....but they was pretty. I have not finished last years quilt yet or the year before, but hey it`s fun to get these patterns . I guess I`m just like my mom , she always has more then one quilt going at a time. She doesn`t crochet, just quilts and embroiderys. I have made my oldest a peace quilt , hopefully this year , I can get it quilted and give it to her for her birthday or maybe Christmas.
I am still researching goats and am thinking about the kinder goats, I so love the floppy ears and the size will much better then the bigger goats. I would love to start from scratch with a nubian and a pygmy, but I need to get the fence situation in order to get any goats. Since the tornadoa of 2009 wiped out the electric in our garage, can`t put up electric fence, so I don`t know as of yet and still need to get my hubby sold on the idea of having goats. Well that is enough of rambling for one day. Everybody have a good day!

I will say our road is icy and slick...no I haven`t been down it...looks slick. i have been out to do morning chores and someplaces was very slick and others well just say drifts of snow. The sun is shining as of right now.....I would say the groundhog saw his shadow today.....I seriously don`t think he would come out of his hole in the ground just to look outside.....it`s too darn cold to out there. Ok maybe he might of stuck his nose out then turn around and burrowed down deep again and curled up to get his body warm again. At least that is what the inside dogs did, they didn`t want no part of it....I had to make them go outside to potty. Well, I am gonna go and cuddle up to get alittle warm.

Saturday ,we went to my aunt sue`s surprize birthday party, little cricket came too, in which she seemed so bored Her thoughts of the day;
This place is so boring All I get to do is sitting on a lap ....things to eat but I don`t get to at least try anything.....bored , bored. Oh their is another little puppy here, he looks as bored as me...he don`t get to eat anything either. We smelled noses but that`s all I was allowed to do, I don`t think I wanted to play...too many people around and every once in awhile I hear a swaek from something....they say it is a bird of somekind....it sure don`t look like a chicken or a duck...they are so fun to play with sometime. Then we went to a place where green grass and terrible barking of two other dogs.....I so wanted to be friends , but the big hairy one was a little scary to me...I think she thought I was something to eat....oh, I so don`t like it here with this big hairy thing.
The big hairy thing was my mom`s shih tzu, Ruby, who really thought cricket was a play thing, maybe even a hot dog , lol.....well that is all I have for now

The seeds I have so far are as follow: Radish-Early Scarlet Globe,French Breakfast,Sparkler White top , I am gonna look for some white ones too.: Turnip - Purple top white globe; Garden beans ( green beans) Contender( bush); Jalapeno M; dark grren zucchini; early Prolific Straightneck squash ; Cantalope ( daughter choice); Jack O`lantern pumpkin and Small sugar Pumpkin. It looks like I am gonna be busy planting
I tried working in the beds today, but it is just too muddy still yet. I did clean out another two chicken pens today and put the manure in the one of the beds. I think I am gonna try and get another two beds up and running for spring somehow. I might have to use rocks to go around the beds for now, in which their is plenty of here on the farm.
I have started to research goats and their care and am thinking about getting a couple, don`t know how that will work out this year though. Our fence is just barbed wire for the most part . I think baby goats are so cute and enjoy looking at the picture over at granny best and at tonia`s and others.
I am still working on my afghan , I think it will be queen size and have not done any other blocks as of yet, but have done other rows on it and let me tell you it is getting heavy just turning for the next row. I have also made a couple of grape doilies that I plan on trying to sell this spring when all the swap meets start happening in this area, and farmers market which is in March. I am so looking forward to them and hatching baby chicks and baby ducks.
I have been toying with the idea of getting rid of my cayuga`s, but have not let go as of yet. I would like to keep the hen that lays the black egg, yes a black egg it is what the cayuga`s breed is known for besides ,the beautiful color of black and when the sun hits it shades of green and purple surface, but still not for sure on the idea. i know I do have extra drake, in which he is not pure cayuga, I think maybe alittle kaki cambell or mallard not for sure. The main drake is not pure as well, he has a look of being mixed with kaki campbell or mallard as well. I am not planning on getting rid of my muscovey , I so love watching them talk and fly, even though when they start laying it is like Easter egg hunting, lololol.
I guess that is enough rambling on , I will go for now.
Saturday, January 22, 2011
I am truly sorry I didn`t get a picture , but a person can`t hardly get a picture and hang on.....lol
With the two girls and me on the sled and hubby driving the truck ...noone can take the picture and concentrate on holding on or driving...... Ohhh the joys of living in country!!!!!!!
I don`t know if we will get any more snow or not, they are calling for another snow fall but this area is only expecting a light dusting...We will have to wait for another good snowfall,but with this Missouri weather who knows when that will be ?
Friday, January 21, 2011

The muscoveys didn`t get out from under the garage and they don`t like the snow when it is this deep.
Our dog ( Crazy) Bandit eating the snow. He was, I swear running around just biting the snow and of course panting alot. He just loves the snow...it`s his first year with snow. Cricket loves the snow as well....she so has a hard time going thru that much snow... sorry I didn`t get a picture of that.

Hi! My name is Cricket and I am a little puppy of the Dashund ( not sure of spelling as I am a puppy) variety. Sometimes 2 of my humans , in which their are a total of four of them ( how lucky am I) get on this big yellow thing....or would I say they disappear into this big yellow thing....then beep,beep,beep sound goes off and the big yellow thing goes down the road to somewhere. I missed those two girl humans terrible when they get on the big yellow thing and go away. But later I do get to see them, sometimes I have to wait for hours , in which seems like a lifetime to little me. I am told by one of my humans that the big yellow thing is a bus, but not for sure what a bus is.
One day one of my humans took me to loud place ,at least I thought it was loud at the time...alot of screeming going on....I just looked around and snuggled in the sleeve of the humans coat and soon their was my favorite two human girls coming to hold me......hahahahahaha. I was so happy to see them.... This place was a school that I was tooken to. I kinda of now enjoy going there as I know I will soon see the two girls who I adore.
I so love my humans. They play with me and my favorite part is snuggling with them and going to sleep.
I thought this might make some of you that follow me a laugh.... Enjoy and a have a happy day!!!!!!

She seems like she really don`t know what the fuss is all about. Almost like do I know you from somewhere. She didn`t seem at all hungry....I just wonder where she has been the past three days. We have looked all around the fields around us and down the road and called all the neighbors to see if they had seen her.
I am glaaaaad she is home finally.

Tinker has been a good dog. She is a chow/lab/heeler and what ever else mixed in there. She has killed amany possoms that were after my chickens as well as coons, even a skunk after it sprayed her in the face. She did everything we asked her to do. She loved to play hide and seek with my husband in her younger years. she has drunk out possoms under the porch.....possoms from holes........skunks out from hole in the ground and protected us from harm. She is/ was a good dog and she will be missed if she doen`t come back to us. I am sure if she is gone to her heavenly reward she is up there running rabbits...squirrels and possoms amuck.

We got about inch of snow here and wind blowing the snow off the trees, which were so pretty last night. I was gonna get a picture of the snow covered branches......mother nature had other plans......like the wind blowing it off before I woke up. I am sure I will get my chance to take pictures of the snow covered branches as snow is expected again this weekend.
