This is a big beach tree that lives in my backyard. Ever since I can remember, it has been called the googly eyed tree. Can you see all of its eyes?? I like beach trees and their leaves are neat. They look crimpy.

Went to bed late and had to get up early for work. Now I'm relaxing on the couch, being kept company by an adorable little baby bird. Whenever anyone lays on the couch, he's pretty quick to join. He will even make little sleepy noises and snuggle with you. I love him!

So, here's what's been going on here in paradise. Above is the little guy that dad and I saw out in the woods. I love seeings turtles! Dad and I saw him later that day, swimming around in our pond.
They were delicious. There is nothing like farm grown, free range chicken meat. SO much better than store bought.
Anyways, Cogburn likes being the man of the house now. He crows happily all day, and seems to be nice enough to the hens. Sometimes roosters can be really mean, but Cogburn seems to be pretty tame.
Here is a really neat moth that was on the inside of the door in the chicken coop. It blends in amazingly. Nature is really amazing!
Anyways, there's lots more going on, but these are the highlights. This past weekend my mom and I drove out to Iowa to do a Relay For Life walk. It went for 12 hours and we were POOPED by the end of the day. Then we went to bed, got up and drove back home.
My whole left side is sunburned, but we had a great time with friends!
Until next time everyone,

I'm sitting out by my bee hive, watching them coming home for the evening and decided to post a quick snip about the evening.
First off, the frogs are out in the pond croaking away. I was checking one of my swarm traps when I heard them. I really like listening to them at night.
Then I walked around to the back garden and saw these beautiful flowers. I don't know how they ended up out there all by themselves, but they sure are pretty.
Now I'm just watching the bees for a minute before I tuck the chickens in and head in myself.
Nature is an amazing thing and I am truly blessed to be able to surround myself with it everyday!
Until next time,
