After flag football practice, Iris complained of her neck hurting, so I gave her a quick massage. :) I like her content little smile....it is similar to my content smile I have. This girl has beautiful, golden eyes.
Some of my cucumbers have turned this weird orange color. I don't eat them - they get thrown to the chickens. This one grew like this on the top of my trellis. I left it alone and it is growing around the metal. I wonder if it will eventually burst open or just get mushy from the cold temps.
Hello from Brian, Carla, Gareth, Zane, and Iris. We live in rural east central, IL on 10 acres. Brian works as a web programmer and Carla currently is a SAHM, used to do social work type stuff.
We have 2 sons, Gareth and Zane and 1 daughter, Iris. We have 4 cats and chickens, ducks, and guinea fowl.
This blog is mostly for friends and family to see what is happening in our lives and to serve as an online scrapbook. Come share in our adventures of raising 3 kids that were born within 2.5 years of each other and moving to the country as of June 2009 to live on 10 acres. Our plan is to fix up the old farm house, live in it a few years, and start building a new home further back on the property.
We are interested in gardening, beekeeping, sustainable living, attachment parenting, and secular humanism.
