Hi!  I am glad you have found me and all my wicked chickens!  My name is Rachel and I live in beautiful east Texas.  I home school my daughter, work full time and attempt to grow a garden with varying degrees of success.  We look over an unholy amount of chickens whom I consider part of the family.  Add in 21 cows, 5 horses, 4 cats and 2 dogs on a 90 acre plot surrounded by another 240 acres of timberland, 28 miles from town and you have found us. There is never a dull moment!  I began blogging because I lived in a microscopic house and needed a creative outlet that didn’t require much space.  I love my life and love sharing it with you!

Below, some pictures of me.  So you can rest in the knowledge I am not a creeper.

Please join me on this fun, fantastic and fabulous journey thru the country!

This is me fishing, just fishing. 'Cause I never catch a thing!

Also, if you ever want or need to use my pictures just please ask and give proper credit.  Thank you so very much!

Need to contact me for anything?   Just shoot over an email to rachelvickers26@yahoo.com

  1. Oh my goodness! I love you already!
    Chickens, kids, hubs, animals, orchards and a garden?!!? I’m a hooked country girl, too.
    Right now, I’m in the middle of convincing the hubs to help me build a greenhouse/chicken coop combo. So far, it’s a “no”…but, if remove the cell phones from the bedroom like you suggested on my site, perhaps that will lend itself to a more persuasive conversation 😉

    Thank you so much for wandering over to my site…it led me right here to you!

  3. When I figure out how to make one I will (website that is). I live in Maydelle on 18 acres that was my Grandparents place. They bought it in 1964 for 100.00 an acre but at that time had 28 acres. We were the only grandchildren so it was willed to us. My husband & I bought out the other siblings & their wish was to keep it in the family so that our Great Grandchildren could enjoy it just like we did with our kids. Being a city girl I never wanted to live in the country. Since moving here 12 yrs ago I hate having to even go to Houston or Dallas to just visit. The blessings of getting to cook with her pots & pans & spending time with our children & grandchildren making smores, homemade ice cream & tractor rides is a vision they had. We enjoy watching the deer & squirrels playing in the back. One of the most treasured sites is seeing the Does bring their fawns out to feed in the spring. Nice to meet the bloggers.

  4. Hi Rachel from Australia, what a lovely blog you have. And I feel like I resonate with you. We also have a menagerie of animals so I can relate. Look forward to reading more of your posts.
