Take A Peek At Our Week Feb 4 – 10

take a peek at our week

It’s time to take a peek at our week!

Despite the cold and mountains of snow. egg production is strong in the coop. Usually this is the time of year when nest boxes run empty, but our ladies are doing an amazing job of providing us with breakfast. The snow may not be affecting our flock, but it is messing with the country kids’ school days, and my ability to function! Those lucky little punks had TWO snow days this week and with the amount of snow falling this weekend, I am not holding my breath they will be going on Monday either.

There has been a lot of baking this week, mostly because I wanted to appear busy and not have to go out in the snow. I know, I am naughty, but our house sure did smell good! I also put the finishing touches on a 3 part FREE Facebook live fermenting series I am kicking off on the 13th. I am nervous but I am sure it will be fun. I really enjoy helping other people learn new skills and take projects that might intimidate them.

So what made me smile this week?

It’s was a three egg morning and the best part is one of them was grandma Ester’s! It is always such a delight to find one of her rare bluish/green eggs in the nest box.
puppy bowl
We are a football kind of family, but the oldest country kid did forcing us to watch Puppy Bowl. At least there are some ducklings! 😂
blaze the rabbit
Who let the rabbits out? Oh yeah, the country kids! I have one 100+ lb dog, two cats, two rabbits, and two country kids of varying sizes running amuck in the house. Now you would think that the rabbits were at the bottom of this food chain, but to be honest, the cats and dogs are terrified of them! Blaze here does what he wants, where he wants, when he wants…. And he wanted to play with the littlest country kid’s cars. Snow days at our house are like three ring circus!
rising bread
One more rise and then into the oven this bad boy goes! I love, love, LOVE the smell of baking bread. Tell me I am not the only one?
Fifi the chicken
Hey Fifi, you coming out today to play in the snow? That is as far out as she came. I’d say that’s a big old, yeah, nope!
Mama needs a drink
When the country kids push me just a little too far…. Bless my hubby, he brought me some Rum Chata in a plastic champagne glass. We are high class, let me tell ya!
littlest country kid
This week we celebrated the littlest country kid’s 6th birthday!
half a mouse
I moved hubby’s recliner to sweep and found this! Why!?!?! Eat the whole thing or nothing for crying out loud. Not sure if Nate or Ginger left this hidden gift. Maybe they ate half and stuck the rest behind the chair for later.
ducks in snow
It’s still snowing and they don’t care! Tell me these two aren’t adorable. Mr Bill and Betty ❤ Yes, I am addicted to ducks.
homemade gift wrap
When you need to wrap a gift but you have no wrapping paper and the roads are too bad to go out because of all the snow…. crayons, brown paper, and lots of love!


Remember to take time out of your busy day to find your own things to make you smile!

  1. I always watch the puppy bowl love it. No NFL in this military house. I watch it over and over something new to see every time their is so much going on. Loved the duckies. 🙂

  2. My whole family loves to smell homemade bread baking. The hard part is letting it cool a bit after it comes out of the oven lol! And two loaves is never enough! Store bought bread will sit in our cupboard forever but homemade never lasts long. Love the pictures of your family (furry and human)!

  3. Had one Aunt as a kid always baking bread, memories. Have never made bread so you sure have it on me. Did used to bake a lot for 4 kids, youngest son’s wife thought I was awful Mother cause I baked cookies , pies and cakes for family. She’d never leave our grand daughter with us, she was so afraid would give her a cookie. Great way to pass snow days with baking.Happy b/d to your son.
    Happy rest of weekend
