Yesterday, as I stood by the grave where my father and I had just buried my big, beautiful, gentle, and kind Cochin Rooster, I considered the chicken journey I have travelled for the last 7 years.
This friendly, engaging, and noisy Rooster was a large part of that experience. He was the epi-center. His name was Mr. Coshie.
Mr. Coshie was one of the ambassadors of my farm.
I started with 17 babies back in the springtime of 2013.
Happy New Year and New Decade Farmgirl Friends!
Our snow family greeting the new year and new decade!
It’s been a big time for change and newness around here as we get settled into our new (to us) house, new routines and new part of town. I’ve been asked approximately 4.3 million times how we are liking our new house, if we are all moved in, etc. etc. My usual reply is–yes! It’s great and yes all of our stuff is in the house. Note: I did not say we are all moved in :). It’s proving to be difficult to “move in” with all of this newness happening with young kids around. I’m generally okay with this and try to find the humor in it…but there are times of darkness and turmoil! (like when I decided to collect and organize ALL OF OUR SHOES).

Happy New Year, sisters!
Can you believe we are on the heels of a brand new decade? I swear the older I get the faster the years go. I actually had a dream that I was 70 years old last night. ( I am 58 years young). Some of you are already there, ( thank goodness) and many of you are creeping up to it. Some souls never make it, and others live well beyond. What’s my point here? I think as we get older we become more mindful of how we spend our precious time ( and who we spend it with) because we truly appreciate what a blessing ” our ” time on this earth truly is. I always say, it’s never too late to begin a long-held dream or take a risk on a new one that you didn’t see coming! Let’s walk into the new year together with a keen eye and open hearts. Where will your footsteps take you? Or better yet, where will YOU take your footsteps? Continue reading
