The Cabin

Each year, to celebrate another 12 months of wedded bliss, my husband and I sail off for an exotic, sun-soaked vacation.  We bath in the warmth of life, drink the wine of love all while white-robed, tan-skinned attendants tend to our every need. NOT! But we do make it a point each year to skip town…

Wicked Walk 1/21/2015

This Wednesday began perfectly brilliant and I thought “hmm, I’ve got heaps of time to walk on this beautiful, sunny day”.  This resulted in my procrastination to the evening hours which brought not only low light but rain and cold.  Pitter patter on my head was the tune I danced to along our back forty. …

40 Hour Week

Recently I was on my way to work, easing down my bumpy dirt road watching the sun rise and Alabama’s song ’40 Hour Week’ came on the radio.  As I listened I was reminded just how blessed I am to live in a country where I am able to work, worship and live as I…

Wicked Walk 1/13/2015

As I’ve been super crazy busy this past week, adjusting to my new, super-fantastic job, traveling over-night to Fort Worth for a book convention with one of my bestest friends and just dealing with life in general I find myself one post short for the week and my ‘walk’ not even prepared for you all…

The One……

I have 34 Chickens.  29 Hens, 5 Roosters.  And while I’d rather have only 2-3 roo’s it is okay.  They seem to get along fairly well, there are no horrid cock-fights running amok.  And at the end of the day they all go to roost happily together, 33 of  them.  The 34th, a small bantam…
