April 24, 2015 - Miss Lilly and Thema

A now a word from Miss Lilly...

April 24, 2015 - "I am a chicken...I poop, it is what I do."



And now a word from mama...

I am home alone tonight, all the boys are out, so I decided to cook up some chicken Enchiladas Suizas, Mexican rice with all the trimmings.  It came out delicious!  I have to say though, it is a little weird cooking chicken, when you have four little chickens watching from the next room.  All four, perched on the side of their bed...staring.  They either approved, or were horridly offended.  :P


Happy Weekend Friends!

Until next time...enjoy life, and be kind to one another.


Peace.

April 23, 2015 - Cycling Chickens!

Today would have been the perfect day for cycling, but the boys were working on the car and were not feeling it.  :'(

I did the next best thing.  I combined three of my favorite things...cycling, chickens and photography. Don't worry, I would never take the girls cycling, but they did enjoy sitting for a while in my basket by the front window.

They are so cute!



Until next time...enjoy life, and be kind to one another.


Peace.

April 22, 2015 - No Project Too Difficult

Casey has never replaced an entire engine in a car before, but that does not stop him.  Just like his big brothers Garrett and Brandon, there is no challenge too great for Casey.  His car needs a new engine, a new engine it shall have.  Garrett rebuilt his old Ford truck, Brandon has built from scratch some amazing computers.  There is no task too hard for my boys.  They get that trait from their father.

In my mind's eye, Casey's engine swap is much like performing a heart-lung transplant with no prior knowledge or experience. A truly daunting task.  One certainly not for the faint of heart.  As far as Casey is concerned...a piece of cake.  Maybe a HUGE piece of cake...but a piece of cake none the less.

I am not going to lie, having car parts scattered all over my garage has made me more than just a little bit crazy.  I would have given up on this project months ago, but not Casey.  I do admire his stubborn determination.  It might take months to complete, but he will get his S12 running again!




A little help from dad.
"Son, maybe you should sell all the parts and just get a new car?"

"Excuse me mom?  Out of the question! I love my S12!"
"I am proud of you son."  <3

***Update*** The engine is in!  I have no idea what that means...but at least the engine is off the floor.  Mama does not like engines on the floor.  lol  
.
Well done boys!

In gardening news, I still have not planted my vegetables as it is still too cold at night.  My honeysuckles are thriving...yay!  Today Jack brought me some lavender to plant.  I LOVE lavender. Thank you honey.  
 Miss Lilly approves.


Until next time...enjoy life, and be kind to one another.


Peace.

April 21, 2015 - 2015 Cycling Challenge, Ride 12

Just a short ride today.  Blake had his choir concert at school tonight, so we cycled to school, then out to dinner at IHOP after.  We had a delightful time.

Blake is singing bass now.  Watching his performance, and listening to him sing, I have to wonder why he has to grow up so darn fast?  He loves being in the choir, and sings so well.

Can I just say...I LOVE my family!  We are not perfect.  There are days that the boys would like to invite each other to take a long walk off of a short pier.  We have our moments, we don't always get along, we have misunderstandings and disagreements from time to time...but we love each other.  We love each other, and we are there for each other no matter what.  I am very proud of that, and I am very proud and thankful for my four sons.  *love*

Yesterday, having all the boys here at home helping Jack and I work on the garden, was so much fun. We laughed, acted silly and had a wonderful visit.  My precious grandchildren Cooper and Penny are delightful and funny, and I loved sitting with Amber and chatting with her when she joined us after work.

I am very blessed.  WE are very blessed.  :)

Blake, at his concert this evening.


 Outside the restaurant, before dinner.
 It was a beautiful sunset tonight.  Too bad I had my camera settings all wrong!  I am learning.  :)
Total ride...3.96 miles.
I have only cycled 40.01 miles for April thus far.  I am having too much fun with my baby chickens, and my garden.  Time to get back on the road!

Until next time...enjoy life, and be kind to one another.


Peace.
