Enjoying Having Chickens On The Homestead & Mc Murray Hatchery Company...

Having Chickens

I truly think chicken's are the very prettiest when it is this time of year!
They are very fat and they have all their feathers!

I have had the pleasure of having chickens for years!
I love getting fresh eggs!!
During the long winter months they stop laying completely for a few months.
But as soon as it starts to warm up they start blessing us again!

I do not let them free range very often because they really are
very destructive!

They also will start laying their eggs in spots that you may never find them!

Also, we have foxes and coyotes that would love a chicken dinner!
Plus we have three dogs and I feel that it is such a great temptation for them!

I usually get a new batch of baby chicks about every two years;
Then I can keep a newer, younger hen in the flock.
But I have some very old hens that are just plain fat and I am sure they don't
Lay eggs anymore. But they are like the old girls in the flock.
Just because they are old I still love having them!
They are just fat and fluffy!
I have had a few that are really mean!
Those ones don't stay around very long
(Can't trust them with the grandkids)

One thing that I have enjoyed about having chickens other than
getting fresh eggs, is that they will eat all the left over
scrapes of food and anything past the safe date to serve
the family. Also, any peelings and sour milk they love!
Then I don't feel bad that something has gone bad;
I just feed it to the chickens!!

We have two roosters and it gives just enough competition for the top rooster!

My plan is to order some new chicks real soon!
I order from a company called

MCMURRAY HATCHERY DOT COM



I have a small special box I keep in the barn with a heating lamp!
I keep them there till they can't fit through the holes in the chicken wire.
And they hop around like a jackrabbit!

Do you have some funny memories of chickens?
Actually, many people are afraid of chickens!

Blogging For A Very Long Time...


What I do like about blogging, Living from glory to glory blog



Growing Our Blogs;

Is it the same as growing our Spirit, Souls and Body?
Well, yes it can be in a way, but spending time with the Lord
Should take first place! And being truly present while homemaking.
We can now all attest to always having a device in our arms reach..
Beware!

Blogs are BIG business!
There is money to be made;
Believe me, I understand this, when I was a young wife and a homemaker;
We called these avenues Cottage businesses.
Do you make money from your blog?
I have never earned a penny!

What I love about Blogging and What I do NOT like about blogging!

What I like about Blogging

1. Connecting to those like minded.
2. Being inspired and encouraged.
3. Growing in my homemaking skills.
4. Learning ways to be creative.
5. Praying for requests we hear about
 from other blogger's.
6. Being allowed to speak into other women's lives!
7. Reading about  new idea's for decorating my home.

1. Word Verification!!
(You can select registered user only, and also use Comment Moderation!)

I Never Promised You A Rose Garden, How To Disagree And NOT Fight...

 
How To Disagree And Not Fight, Living from glory to glory blog...


I Never Promised You A Rose Garden

Marriage and a bed of Roses...

A Good marriage takes work!

Anything worthwhile takes work!
If you want a bed of roses to lie down in, then you must start
with some very strong manure!
Be careful of how fresh it is because it will burn your seedlings or
kill a new plant!

I realize it is not really time to plant roses, but it is time to
think about what state your marriage soil is in!

I sometimes get irritated when we think love is something that just happens.
It may just be infatuation or just plain lust of the flesh.

Real love and marriage has many trials and errors.
Do you know why God tells us to have an older woman
in our lives that has the experience of being a Godly wife?

BECAUSE we have to LEARN how to Love our husbands!

We are all going to have fights once in awhile,
And when you first get married it is a bit rough for many couples.

Fighting Fair

Conflicts will happen in every marriage----

Women are notorious for wanting to have the last word.

[Love] is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,
it keeps no records of wrongs.
1 Corinthians 13:5

How To Disagree and NOT Fight

Answer this Question...
Can you get angry without getting destructive?
(Your words, your attitude, your actions)?

Stick to the problem or point
Don't drag the past records of wrongs into your disagreement.

Allow your spouse to respond and make your statement
then they can respond back.
(No hands on your hips)

Don't allow your feelings to rule,
But state the facts!
(Men need facts)

Take the first move to ask for forgiveness and make an apology!

Love is not rude...

Lord, give me wisdom to be a Godly wife; and to do the hard work;
So one day we will have the soil prepared for a bed of Roses.

Remember making up is so much better!

Do You have some of your own words of wisdom for dealing
with conflict in your marriage, please share!!


Even in our marriages, we must be;

A Little Cake And Heart Health...


A Bite Size Cake, Living From Glory To Glory Blog


A Little goes a long way...

I have noticed that we usually desire something small and sweet to eat after
A meal or dinner or a luncheon...

I have been making some smaller loaf size of quick breads and freezing them.
And I enjoy a smaller cake, so I believe you can take just about
Any kind of cake batter flavor, and put them a small cupcake size pan.
They cook faster and they are easier to serve.

So many after the first of the year go out to an all out war;
Against sweets and you name it!

But we all know we are going to crave something sweet...
(If you are gluten free, just use a mix that is gluten free,
Or just make up your own homemade batter.
You can buy Gluten free flour at any grocery store now days.

I have never felt good about depriving myself of sweets!

There is always going to be a new fad or a new food;
I get that, but eating all foods that are tolerated and eating variety;
In smaller portions is always a wiser way to eat!

When my blood pressure got high;
(I was told juice, celery and drink it every day)
My blood pressure problem was genetics, so all the celery in the world,
was not the answer for me!
But I do hope we can enjoy a bit of cake without harming our health!

As we all know we have to watch our sugar intake;
I kid you not everyone you talk to is either pre-diabetic or a full blown diabetic.
So we all need to cut back on our sugars and starches
and all forms of wheat and carbohydrates.

Enjoy the good things, just don't indulge and gorge oneself.

Everything in moderation...



Heart Health

May I take just another moment to remind you all that heart health is
So important to our well being...

I know you all know about saturated fats and bad oils.
Do you know that being unforgiving in your heart
will cause you?

If you think anyone of us is exempt from forgiving others;
You are being deceived...

It is not always easy, but we can do it with God's help!
True Love
Not remembering their wrongs!

Blessings, Roxy

What is happening on the home front
My computer crashed
Got a new one and it is tough learning the ways of the newer ones!
Internet was down
My car was no longer reliable!
Got a new one, well new to me...
I have learned to not worry and just trust the Lord
He makes all things new in His timing!

~May your HEARTS be filled with Love & Joy~

Violets For Today As Tomorrow Is Always A Day Away...


Violet Teacup, Living From Glory To Glory Blog


Tomorrow, Tomorrow is always a day away...

I always have this idea in my head that there is a good ending to every story!

But I have seen some sad endings...

But we all need to all be a little Pollyanna inside.

I am seriously thinking that we are in all overload.
Children and adults...
Some claim to think it is all about learning and obtaining knowledge.
Some think doing and going and being involved is what is needed!

We are in such a diverse society now a days,
But the fact of the matter is we need to take care of what is ours.
Taking on everyone else's problems and struggles can be very taxing.

But we all need hope!!

I have been so blessed to be at home and to choose and pick what I want
to be involved in. And being available to help with family.

But I can see that we need to remind ourselves that we do not have to
be involved in everything!

Today is all that I have;
For we are reminded in the Word not to boast and to say
"We are going to do this or that tomorrow"

May, I remind you that we must focus on God's goodness!

My Mother use to tell me don't bite off more than you can chew.
It sounds funny, but it does hold a lot of wisdom.

I do hope you are all doing well!
Thinking that I may need to re-access my daily list of things of importance.

I think as you get older the days run out as about as fast as my steam does!

I have heard and seen many of you ladies deep cleaning;
And de-junking
Decluttering
Spring cleaning...

I have had no move to do so;
Maybe you could let me know what you're doing!
I could use a bit of encouragement...

Moist Scones Made With Dried Cherries And White Chocolate Chips...


Scones For Valentines Day, Living From Glory To Glory Blog

Scones Made With Dried Cherries And White Chocolate Chips

These are my all time favorite scones!
I have made these for special tea parties and of course just to enjoy,
They bake up quick and they freeze really well also!
I like them because they are light and not real sweet.
And they are just very pretty for a baked good!

Scones are something that always tastes good for a desert or a special occasion.
But if you want a special treat for yourself, you really must try this recipe!
You will love it!

Cherry And White Chocolate Chip Scones


3 cups white unbleached flour
1/2 cup sugar
2-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp soda
6 tablespoons cold butter
(No substitutes)
1 cup of vanilla flavored yogurt
1/4 of a cup of milk

1/2 cup dried cherries (I like to make my dried cherries into smaller size pieces)
2/3 cup white chocolate chips

In Your bowl. Combine all the dry ingredients, now cut in your COLD butter until your dough has a crumbled texture.
Add your milk and yogurt together; stir into crumbled mixture, just until moistened..
Knead in the cherries and chips.

Now you pat the dough into a circle on a floured surface and now you cut it into slices;
(You can make them large or I like mine in much smaller bite size scones)

Bake on a greased baking sheet at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes for large size scones
But a shorter time for the bite size ones.
