Home Update

Well this last couple weeks has been very busy. We (the hubby and I) ran away from home last weekend which was great! We slaughtered the pig which means lot of meat in the freezer now. I had 4 more chicks hatch. And the sanctuary has a few more residents. It’s been busy, busy, busy here. Of course that (at least to me) also means fun. I really don’t like getting stuck in a rut.  That said, this post will be a little different. There will be a lot of pictures and less words! I know…YAY!!  lol.

Pig

I’m going to gross anyone out by posting pictures of the actual slaughter, but it was definitely a job! But the pig pen looks so strange being empty and I miss Bacon calling to me when I would go out there.

Empty Pig Pen….:(

Family

The family is doing good. The baby is growing very fast. I am still having a hard time knowing that she will be 5 months soon.

Last weekend, my hubby and I got to run away from home. Even though we didn’t go very far, it was still very nice to get out for a while. We went to Benson, Wilcox, and Douglas. In Benson we went to the Singing Wind Bookstore. I have to say if you’re ever in Benson, this is a must visit! The lady that runs the place, Winifred Bundy, is so sweet.

Does any one know what this bush is? Hubby thinks Jasmine.

We stayed at Motel 6 in Benson. The rooms are very bright, but pretty comfortable.

From there we went to Wilcox. We were going to hit some of the farms and orchards there, but the weather had other ideas.

Since the weather wasn’t cooperating, we went to Douglas to see Aarron’s parents. The drive from Wilcox to Douglas is very pretty, for the desert.

We enjoyed getting out and away for a bit so I’m sure we will do it again soon.

Chickens

Last but not least, I had 4 chicks hatch last week and they are adorable. I hope to get better pictures soon, but this is what I have so far.

Then there are the new residents at the sanctuary.

And don’t forget you can help with these chickens as well. Just run on over to Youcaring Donation page .  Every little bit helps with food and lumber and anything else these chickens need.

I hope ya’ll had a great week!

Have a great day!

    Awww I always wanted chickens growing up lol. I once fell in love with a baby rooster at a petting zoo, but I don’t think I would have wanted it fully grown haha.
