Chicken Shaming

Chicken Shaming

I’m not sure if you have ever heard of “dog shaming”.  Well if you have, you may have heard of “chicken shaming”.  Chicken shaming is when you take a misbehaving chicken and make them pose with a sign to explain why they have been bad. I guess you could say my chicken hasn’t necessarily been bad, but I don’t believe the other chickens approve of her doings.  You see, my chicken thinks she is a dog. Read More

Rainbow Tractor

“Keep looking up…..there may be a rainbow waiting for you”

I took this picture last August during Millet harvest.  This was such a neat picture because the clouds, rain, and rainbow all seemed to be funneling into the grain cart. Of course, it’s all where you stand when taking the picture and placing the tractor, but when standing in just the right spot it seemed like it was all so perfect.

Harvest Meals Day 3

Harvest Meals…..Day 3

Day 3 harvest meal is one of my favorites, although, you might find me saying that about most of the meals I cook because I LOVE food! I have taken chili Fritos, cinnamon roll cake, and some vegetables. I know when most people think of chili they think of cold, blistering winter days.  However, I don’t know many people who aren’t down for some chili Fritos any time of year.  My Crockpot Chili recipe is amazing Read More

Crockpot Chili

Crockpot Chili

I have been making this recipe since I moved out of the house after high school….a long time ago.  Since day one it has been one of my husband’s favorite meals (along with lasagna).  My kids even love this recipe.  Their only complaint is I make it too much. I do make it a lot, but who doesn’t love chili on a cold afternoon.  Settling in with a nice, warm bowl of chili covered in Read More

Cinnamon Roll Cake

Cinnamon Roll Cake

I have never been a huge cinnamon roll fan.  Too much dough and not enough frosting for me.  However, cinnamon roll in the form of a cake, yes, please! If I were making this cake just for me I would double the frosting.  I love frosting, but my family likes the simple combination of a little cake and a little frosting.  Me, I am a lot of frosting and a little cake. So when making this cake Read More


“Sometimes I pretend to be NORMAL, but it gets boring so I go back to being ME”

I am going to put a disclaimer on this post because I am going to be telling some stories that some may believe to be “too much information (TMI)”.  If you are easily offended or don’t want to read some very personal information about me, go ahead and close out of this window and have a good day! I enjoy being a goofball, it’s just who I am.  I think during wheat harvest the guys Read More

Life is too important

“Life is too important to be taken seriously”

My husband has his fair share of stories.  His are usually very interesting because if something is going to break or go wrong, it always happens to him.  Following my story about combine-tipping (thank you F.P. Dorchak for the reference) my husband wanted to throw in his very own story. Chad’s combine-tipping story in his own words After reading Jill’s post about combine balance games, I recalled what I call The Great Combine Rodeo.  Here’s how Read More

Be Silly

“Be Silly. Be Honest. Be Kind.”

So I realized I have been way too serious lately and I needed a little “silly” in my life.  What better way to do that than to share one of my funny farm stories. It’s probably been about 5 years ago.  I was just getting back into farming with my dad and learning the equipment.  Ever since I was little the tractor has been what I ran.  Whether it was the grain cart, disking, blading, Read More

Fall together

“Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together”

It looks like old homes may just be my theme the last couple days.  Not intentional, but I was looking for the perfect quote and when I found this quote it felt right to put it with this old home. My daughter starts a new school tomorrow and I wanted to give her a quote with a little inspiration.  We are moving her to a new school due to some issues with other kids that Read More

Harvest Meals…..Day 2

What harvest meal doesn’t consist of BBQ?  I mean really, it’s summertime.  It’s hot, you’re tired, you’re hungry and what do you crave?  If you’re like me it’s BBQ, especially something that’s juicy and messy and makes your mouth water just thinking about biting into it. Look no further because I have Harvest Meal Day 2 harvest meals all planned out for you.  It’s so tasty your harvesters will be thanking you for it and Read More
