Impeccable Petunia Part 1


It is no secret around here that I love my chickens. So when I was given a chance to review a book about chickens of course I was very excited! Yeah I know what you are thinking and giggling about my husband does it all the time.lol Impeccable Petunia was sent to me by the author Katie Christine and it wasn't only me that was super excited to read it. My daughter Allison shares so much joy in animals, so we sat down and read it together. We laughed at the antics of the chickens and how well it was written from the view of the animals.Petunia is a chicken of a different color, not only in the way she looks but in the way she views the world. She befriends a human which of course is unheard of and as the flock reacts the story unfolds. The ending of the book only leaves you wanting more!This was a great book which my daughter and I really enjoyed reading it together we cannot wait until part two is released. I highly recommend this book for reading. It is available at Amazon to download to your kindle and make sure to visit her website to find out more about her upcoming books.

I have been contemplating on whether or not to get my own chickens! My brother in law has 4 or 5 but he will has been contemplating switching to ducks...he also has maggots, yucks!

Is it hard to take care of chickens?

I wish we lived in a zone that permits chickens, I'd love to keep some for my family. This sounds like a great story, I love the name Petunia!

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
