Looking for some great cereal coupons? There are a lot of $1.00 off/one Kellogg's cereal in my sidebar. $1 off/1 cereal coupons don't come out often, so I would get them while you can! Combine them with a sale and you could get cereal for a little over a $1!! Just click and print! --->
I can't believe it is May already. I feel like a broken record, continually saying that time is flying by - but it truly is! I just don't know where it has gone. This month has been so busy that I can't keep track of much. I guess I can't complain too much though. I did want to be subbing more and I finally got my wish. It is nice to be doing something with myself, regardless of how exhausting and trying it can be at times... :) But I feel more useful and as if I have a bit more of a purpose, so that has been nice for me (you'd think with all I have to do around the farm, I would feel I have a purpose, but yeah...)

Today would have been my dad's 63rd birthday. I know a lot of my posts revolve around my dad. I hope it doesn't get too tiring to read about. It amazes me that I can still miss him as much as I do. Such simple things can cause a pain in my heart. All I can say is that I truly miss his advice. I wish I knew what he thought about where I am in life. I'd love to have his knowledge around the farm here. He would be such a help to us. I miss his laughter and hugs. I miss him terribly. He was such a great person, and father.

This month will once again bring a lot of traveling and commitments. I'm really just ready for a month where we can relax, but that doesn't seem as if it will happen anytime soon. Next weekend I'm going on a very quick trip to Pennsylvania for a friend's wedding...flying out Saturday morning and coming back Sunday morning. Our nephew is having a graduation party the next Saturday, and my sister gets married on the 30th. Somewhere in there we hope to have a yard sale too. Ahh. I don't even want to think about what June is bringing!

On top of everything we continue to work around the farm. I'm waiting anxiously for the weather to get a bit better so we can plant the veggie garden. Really need to get them planted!!

And of course, here is a chick picture:

What are these? More new chicks? Ah. Yeah. Haha. We are officially addicted to chicks. Haha. But this is it. I couldn't resist when I went in to a feed store the other day. In part because it seems that about 6 at the minimum of the second batch of chicks are Roos. We will probably keep one, but the others we will need to get rid of. Most likely they will be for meals. In addition, they were supposed to be mostly Barred Rocks, but the guy who sold them to us was entirely wrong. They are Black Sex Links, and some other things we don't know yet... So when I went to the feed store and saw they had Barred Rocks, I had to get a couple. I also picked up a Rhode Island Red, a Buff Orpington, and 2 Easter Eggers. The Easter Eggers are the ones that look like little balls of fluff with chipmunk markings. They are extremely cute. And now we have a big variety of chickens. All different colors, sizes and types. :)

The adventures continue!

Thanks for stopping by my site on my SITS day. We are anxiously awaiting planting our garden as well. It just needs to warm up a bit more in my part of the country.

For once I'm not jealous of where you live...planting 4 plants in containers sounds infinitely easier than tilling and sowing! :-)

happy weekend 'wolf' family :-)

p.s. I think that your dad would be amazingly proud of what you're doing right now and I think that he would be extraordinarily happy that you are so loved by officer b :-)what more does any father want for his daughter than to be loved by someone worthy of her?

Hey! Yes, I was blogging when I was on Myspace, and decided to ditch it and start a real blog. Glad you found me - I'm following you now.

By the way, Jimmy's (the husband:) dream is to live the life you and your hubby have going on. He wants a farm so bad. And yet he's going to law school...? He's a little conflicted I think. lol.

Of course you still miss him. I miss my grandmother more every day and it's been over fifteen years. Oh, how she would have loved my little farm. When the crocuses start popping up, that's when I really miss her because she loved flowers and gardening and she would have loved this life. But you know what? They are right on our shoulder. They direct us and encourage us and when our muscles are aching from digging in the dirt, they give us the strength to do just one more shovelful.

I'm sorry you miss your dad. :(

But those baby chicks should cheer you up!

You do love those chickies...hehe! They're cute though. I wouldn't be able to resist either.

Thanks for the inspiring words the other day. Everything just feels so crazy right now.....who knows what'll happen. Eek!
