We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

Chicken Coop is Now a Moat

That is the side of my house.  Over 7 inches of rain in the last 24 hours.  More later when the storms pass.

Following the flow of water.

LOL Yeah Gail, That was our first coop. Funny thing, we knew nothing when we built it from recycled items laying about. And that coop has the least troubles. Except for flooding.

Wow what a mess you will have. So sorry. I wish I had a truck load of dirt and sand to pour on it!

oh my goodness. Poor birds. Maybe you'll get some relief soon.

We had sooo much rain and snow for a year long and sure hope we can hold on to some of this sunshine.

Has it gone down any or is it still rising? Those poor chickens, has this happened before? The kids having fun with it or is that a no-no?

Take care of you and yours!

Well Lets Just Say

I have webbed feet today. We are expecting more rain just not as much as yesterday. Three Rivers school district closed before school even opened. Buses could not get to students. That was a lot of rain.

Hey Larry,

Saenz and Zephyr 'fish' the chickens all the time. They tie a piece of bread to a fishing pole then cast between the hens. Waaaa Laaa, 'chicken fishing.' It is hiliarious to watch them.
