When life hands you a lemon, make lemonade. 😊 My beautiful woods are long gone, so I decided to enjoy the sunset with my hens. . . . . . . #positivequotes #thatslife #chicken_love #chickenlove #chickens #chickensofinstagram #rurallife #rural #farmlife #country #southerner #ruralsouth #southernlife

In honor of trees, after the devastating California fires. I love Northern CA and have visited their beautiful towns and forests many times. Also, grieving the people who lost everything, and the many who lost their lives. Let's stop for one minute and say a prayer for them. 🙏 . . . . . #prayer #californiamountains #mountains #mountainroad #forests #forest #northerncalifornia #northern_california #forestroads #snowcap #snowcapmountains #mountainlandscape #mountainphotography #mountaintop #dailygram #instatravel #landscape #landscapephotography #letspray

I finished this quilt JUST in time for the birth of my 3rd granddaughter (from our daughter). *swipe* Born yesterday, 11/12, I have much to be thankful for! We also have 2 more granddaughters from our oldest son, making 5 girls total. This is going to hurt my bank book 😉 in a good way!! . . . . . #familyfirst #familygoals #quilts #babylove #baby❤️ #babies #grandbabies #crochet #babycrochet #babyquilts #ilovebabies #babylove #babybaby #quilt_crochet #ilovecrochet

Whispers from the past. These once giant trees lie eerily still; frozen in time at the Petrified Forest in northern Arizona. . . . . . #forests #mountains #americathebeautiful #usa #us #travelusa #travel #travelphotography #landscapephotography #rurallandscape #traveller #instatravel #iloveusa #northernaz #arizona #arizona🌵 #worldtraveler #travel_america #travel_love

RESCUED *swipe* I came across these pictures from a few yrs ago, when we found "Thor", a horse we rescued. He had been a jousting horse in Medieval Times restaurant, in Dallas. He stepped on a nail and became lame, unable to recover after surgery. He was passed around, bullied by other horses, neglected by new owners & starved (as you can see! 😭). We got him and within 3 weeks he began looking better (as seen in pictures). . . . #horse #horses #rescuehorses #horselove #ilovehorses #horse❤️ #rescue

UPDATE:. So the animal in my hen house wasn't a skunk, but a cute little possum! My husband couldn't get it to leave, and since he was tired after a long days work, he wanted to leave the door open so it could leave on its own. He thought it was sick (but it was just playing possum). Against my better judgement, and after a lot of reassurance from him that "it would be fine", I went to bed. It had been in there all day and hadn't harmed any hens & we've never had any problems with possums in 15 yrs of raising chickens, even so, I was still wary. The next morning my fears were confirmed when I saw feathers littering the coop! It had killed my favorite pet hen, "Honey"!! (*Swipe) I'm devastated! My hubby apologized for not killing the possum when he had the chance. Next time I won't be fooled by his cte face.....that's all I've got to say!! . . . . . . #chicken #chickenfarm #chickenlove #chickenlife #chickens #chickensofinstagram #farmlife #farmlifebestlife #chickencoop #hens #homestead #homesteadlife #homesteadlife #rurallifestyle #rurallife #backyardchickens

I went out to collect eggs and found somebody sleeping in my hen house! We've been getting less & less eggs, now I know why. Still asleep under the hay, I didn't dare disturb it bc it looks like it may be a skunk! Ugh. I guess it found a warm place to sleep, since the weather has turned cold. . . . . . #hens #chickens #chicken #farmlife #chickenfarm #homesteader #homestead #homesteading #homesteadlife #henlove #eggs #chickenlife #chickenlove

"Weathered and old, stories untold. Past memories of being useful." Is there a lesson to be learned from an old, abandoned, rusty gate? Reminds me of our elders. Many lonely. Sometimes sad. Not really useful anymore, but all with a story to tell. . . . . . . #oldgate #old #oldpeople #seniorcare #seniorcitizen #alzheimers #aging #assistedliving #eldercare #rustygate #narrowgate #farmgate #farms #farming #farmers #oldfarmers #remember #caregiving #oldlove #homecare #familyhistory #family #generations #familyheritage #familygoals

Annual Peanut Festival & Parade in our small town of Aubrey. My grandfather & great grandfather grew peanuts here, and processed them at the old peanut mill that still stands in downtown. Such a fun time for my grandchildren! . . . . . #farmlife #farm #farmerlife #farmer #smalltownusa #smalltownfestivals #smalltown #rurallife #ruraltown #ruralusa #ruralliving #peanutfarmer #texastowns #texas #texaslife #texaslove #tractorlove #rurallove #tractorlife #tractor #tractors #ilovetractors #farmtractor #vintagetractors #countrylife #southerner #southernlife #downsouth

When I took this picture, the most quoted Psalm (23) came to mind. "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, and leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul." This is a good reminder on the first day of a busy week. Sometimes God has to "make" us lie down...."lead" us beside quiet waters, so he can restore our frazzled souls. . . . . . #restore #restoration #peaceofmind #peaceful #peace #psalms #mondaymorning #mondaymotivation #bibleverses #inspirationalquotes #inspirational #23psalm #countryscene #countrylove #meadows #meadowwalker #meadow #southernusa #southernlove #godspromise #godslove #god
