Farm Living in the month of November

I have issues. Well, to be accurate, I have several issues. One issue is the fire. I am an unhoarder, anti-hoarder... I don't know. I don't like having things I don't need. I love being able to have fires and "get rid of the problem". I feel like the Godfather. We have three burn piles on property. To make it a "family event" I say, "Let's make smores". As the family makes the smores I tiptoe through the house. I usually find the jackpot in the garage. Jamie likes to keep things "just in case." If you look closely in the fire you can see the bottom half of a door. See, I am a problem fixer.

Dani and Jamie are becoming chicken junkies. I am not afraid to say it. I still love them just the same. They got two silkies and 4 chicks this month. I know they would love to get more chickens, but our coop is full. I feel we have to get beyond chickens. We are going to turn into a crazy chicken farm. We are now discussing donkeys. There are many benefits to donkeys.

  1. It is just fun to say you have a donkey.

  2. Donkeys make the property more of a farm.

  3. Jamie can make all the ass jokes. I have heard quite a few as we discussed the issue. Jamie will be in charge of naming the donkey. I am sure the name will not be a coincidence.

  4. They are loud and scared animals. They help keep the coyotes away.

Josh is with his new silkie. He named it Reese's.

Laura, our neighbor, gave the kids 4 new chicks. Dani thinks one may be a rooster. I think we are now up to 14 chickens.

We are getting around 6-8 eggs a day. The blue egg is from the Easter Egger. Dani wants to make an egg business.

Here is the star of the show...BABY!
