She passed this afternoon, quietly in the pleasant light on the front porch, with songbirds singing. I only wish I had been able to heal her. Although any chicken keeper can tell you each chicken has it’s own personality, some have more personality than others. Alzina, named after Farmer Ri...Sunny 29°C / 85°F

Thanks for everyone’s concerns about the Texas wildfires. As you recall, we were surrounded by them in April and May. The Bastrop fire is about 4 hours east of us. It has decimated one of my favorite state parks. Also 18,000 acres of my hometown are burning, the flames now only a mile from ...Cloudy 36°C / 97°F

The past few days the temperature has dropped from 106-109 degrees to 99-101 giving a little relief. It’s pretty sad when 100 degrees feels like fall. Last Sunday a small, dark cloud moved over us. I had an idea. You call yourself a cloud? I bet you are too wimpy to even wet the ground! Far...Cloudy 37°C / 99°F

It’s been a weird week. Farmer Rick accompanied me across the creek yesterday afternoon to tend the chickens, being utterly unable to move about the property as I normally do and we discovered the damage. Well, as if the anxiety I’ve been feeling since the hunter incident wasn’t...Cloudy 18°C / 64°F

Thanksgiving was wonderful, and not a trace of skunk odor remained—something to be truly thankful about! A good time was had by all, eating real, slow food. When we started the meal temperatures were in the 80’s and by the time we finished they had dropped 40 degrees. Tonight they are...13°C / 56°F

The weather has been stunningly beautiful during the day this weekend, although lightly freezing at night. It’s the best of both worlds: almost t-shirt weather during the day, and cold enough for a fire in the fireplace and extra quilts on the bed at night. I love a diurnal climate!
