I have been absent for a few months, but I didn’t forget about all of you! I hope you all are doing well!
Things have been a little crazy in karensordinarylife life recently. I’ll fill you in…
Just a few days after my last post, our family moved into a “new” rental home. New to us, but a cute little 60’s era home. We love it! ❤️🏡❤️. We are still in the same town, but on the opposite end. For us, this means being a few miles away from the river and being surrounded by canals and farmland.
The property is approximately four acres and the owner is planning to turn it into a small farm with chickens, pigs, and other little critters. I have never experienced any kind of farm life, but I love all little creatures (with the exception of snakes 🐍), so I’m going to have a lot of fun!
The owner decided to start with chickens 🐔. He has a number of chicks and chickens at his home waiting for their home to get ready. Meanwhile, we have the first bunch (a rooster and some hens) at our house. I am really enjoying getting to know their habits and personalities! They make me laugh every day! I have also had the opportunity to care for the eggs and chicks during hatch. Oh my goodness!! They are adorable when they first enter the world! ❤️
As we were settling into our new home, Hubby began feeling under the weather. He has a history of heart and stomach issues, so we have been traveling the hundred miles back and forth to his doctor’s appointments. He had an ulcer cauterized early last month and began to feel better, but not 100%, so his cardiologist ordered an echocardiogram and angiogram. I’m am writing this post as I am waiting to help keep my mind occupied and calm. His bloodwork and other tests all look normal, so I’m praying it will go well. I’ll update when I have information on his tests.
Although I’m not sharing a recipe today, I have been working on a few things that I will share soon. For now, I’m sharing some photos of my new feathered friends. I need to work on my “chicken photo taking skills”, since they aren’t concerned with being cooperative. 😂
I am very excited to catch up with all of you and to begin posting again!
Thanks for reading!
