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.
So this is one of my FAVORITE fruits...meet Mr. Coconut. I love everything about them, and the fact that they are really good for is makes them even better. I love using coconut oil for oil pulling, on my skin, hair and I'm going to try making deodorant too.
I bought this one because I read that some birds (Scarlet Tanagers) really like the meat in a coconut. Since I had just seen a Tanager in our yard, I decided to give it a try. No luck so far, but I just like looking outside at the coconut, and I have the water saved up just in case a neat recipe comes my way that calls for it.
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,
