Law-dee, it’s a beautiful morning in Heavensville….


Talk about easy living, cool, breezy, windows are open, birds are singing, I had breakfast down by the creek, took a few pictures, listened to the sounds of nature, oh what a glorious morning.  Now I’m doing a bit of computer work with Maggie asleep on my lap.

I talked to Lindsay this morning, caught up with her and listened to sweet Abby’s voice.

Life is really good here today, really good!!!!!!

Justin Bieber, I just don’t get it…


I’ve been meaning to post about this little pipsqueak for sometime now.  What is going on with teenage girls?  What is the attraction to this kid?  He looks positively prepubescent, yet he’s famous, young girls think he’s sexy????? He drives around in his customized Batmobile of a car, dating that little Selena Gomez, wearing those stupid earrings, jeez, he’s eighteen, but he looks like he’s about twelve years old.  This is what  real heartthrobs looked like in the day.  When I was a teenager, 14, 15, 16, these were the guys we thought were hotties.

I guess the closest lookalike we had in those days to the Bieb was Frankie Avalon.


There is just no comparison.  Poor girls, they just don’t know what they’re missing.  They really don’t!!!

I have such exciting news to share with you today…

The World’s Best Chicken Coop


No, no, don’t worry, I have no desire to have chickens.  I’ve never even liked them, they poop everywhere, they smell and they’re really noisy, the nasty little varmits!  But I found this post over on Tales from The Coop Keeper, appropriately titled “Chicken Porn,” and just had to share the picture.   I also sent it to my friend, Nan, because she is interested in raising chickens.  This coop is from, who else, Martha Stewart, lots more pictures of it at Tales from The Coop Keeper.  And while I was at it, I browsed Heather Bullard’s site, as apparently this is where the photo originated – she has a really nice blog. I’m always amazed at the talented women and the blogs they create.

But back to the chickens, apparently Ms. Stewart has had a long love affair with the fowls.  This photo dates back to 1976.

msI found videos from her show about chickens.  In the video I’m going to give you the link to, the second chicken, a Mille Fleur, is the most gorgeous creature, and later in the video you will see a White Silkie, unbelievably beautiful!  If you let the video play, the next segment shows chicken lovers. I thought the videos were so interesting, or maybe it’s just the country girl coming out in me.  It does pop up often, doesn’t it. 

Here’s the click for the videos…

Boy,  I really went outside my box with this post didn’t I?  You never know what you will see when you click on here.  And the chickens fascinate me, even if I don’t want to visit them up close and personal.


And this is proof positive that I once was once obviously a fan.  I’m about Abby’s age in this picture, and yes, people say she looks like me, there is a resemblance, it’s the fat little face, but she has her mama’s gorgeous eyes, and  she’s so much cuter than I ever was!  And speaking of my sweet little granddaughter, I do have news to share, but that’s for another post.  For now, just concentrate on these chickens!
