Party's Over

Well my daughters party is over. I think everyone had a really good time, I know she did ☺ Only one child got chased by Larry the rooster that day! And my cute little niece wants a bunny so I'm hoping this time Miss Lolly is pregnant. I personally felt like a zombie all weekend, going through the motions to get everything done trying not to cry every two seconds. People that had never been here wanted to talk about my chickens and coop and it was hard to tell stories that didn't involve Squirty. I also noticed I didn't have my usual happy go lucky farm lovin' attitude while showing the new people around. Maybe next time they come they will get to see the love and pride I have for everything we have done! The fabulous news is my house is clean for the first time ALL summer!!! I don't know how long it will last but it's nice right now ☺ I've been reading Joel Salatin's book This Aint Normal Folks wow how easy we fall back into easy routines of eating bad for us food. This book has motivated me to eat alot better than we are now. We have been very busy with football games, parties and such that eating crap has been easier than cooking. NO MORE, this mama will be in the kitchen if you need her ☺

  1. Maybe you can keep it clean for a month or so, it is hard to keep things in order when you really use them and are busy all day without a lot of help. Salatin is located about a half an hour up the valley from where I grew up but I haven't ventured there yet. He charges for a tour which keeps people from wasting his time all day I guess. Getting lots of rain here today so I am not doing much.

    1. Ha! I'll be lucky if I get a week!!!! I didn't know he charged for tours :/ I guess people would drive him nuts all day long if he didn't!

  2. I don't think the words "House" and "Clean" ever come up much around here. It's difficult enough keeping the barns clean, let alone our own abode! Sad, I know.

    I've been wanting to read that book, maybe it's at our library, will have to find out. And good luck with the home cooking! I just had that same thought as I've been doing a little more eating "out" than we should. Time to nip it in the bud.

  3. Glad your party was a success. I know you did a lot of work in preparation for it. Why is it that houses simply CANNOT stay clean for more than . . . well, one day around here!

    In most homes it's the mom or wife that dictates what kind of food her family eats. It's one of the biggest jobs (next to raising kids) we gals have. And cooking from scratch, putting healthy, nutritious meals everyone will eat and enjoy on the table is a huge, never-ending, time-consuming task. But what we put in our bodies does really determine our health. At least I think so. There's no way I want to kick the bucket before I've had many, many healthy, full-of-energy years to do everything I want to do. And I want my family with me the whole way. So putting time into nutritious, good food for me and them is well worth it. (Gosh, I got kinda ranting there, didn't I?)

    1. My house stays dirty because I would rather walk the goats, sit with chickens, or crochet than do the dishes and vacuum LOL!!!! I'm proud to say I have been pretty good this week about fixing dinner which has kept us away from junk foods ☺ Feeding the family is very important and with this countrys food industry it takes a little more effort on our parts to feed them healthy!
