November {a little this & a little that…}

our chicken, Ms Ellie

This is Ms. Ellie, one of our 7 chickens.

our chicken, Ms Ellie

Ms. Ellie has been living in our house for the past few months.  Still not sure what is wrong with her, but she is doing better.  I have been trying to get her back with the flock, but not quite there yet.  I am very hopeful, just one of the chickens still  likes to peck her {any advice will be greatly appreciated on this subject}.  She does go out and mingle with the other chickens during the daytime and at night, her home is in the our house.  The first time I forgot to bring her back in, the search began with a flashlight and calling for her {I don’t think that helped} just to comfort my anxiety.  She was nowhere to be found. Finally, my daughter Hannah called me to look out the back door to see Ms. Ellie waiting patiently to come inside.  I haven’t had any problems finding her now.

.little green pumpkins

Although it’s late in the season, I finally started to clean the garden.  These little green pumpkins are just some that I’ve collected, not sure what to do with them yet. I will keep you posted on that.   apples

 It’s time to pick the last remnant of apples for my applesauce and put away my favorite old rickety ladder.



Already made four batches of applesauce, one more to go and I will be done.  I put a little twist on the recipe the last time I made it and substituted 1/2 pound of cranberries and added a little more sugar.  It turned out great.  {find the recipe Here}


It’s moss season, actually it’s moss season year round… just more now and into spring time. These branches are simply beautiful to look at, the variety, colors and textures in one area.  I think a wreath may be a d.i.y. project in the near future.  I love using them in decorations, but not so much when they completely take over the yard like unwanted weeds.

Ideas are stirring in my head while putting this post together.  Can’t wait to try them and if successful, I’ll be sharing with other things this November!

    What a lucky chicken Ms Ellie is! I cant say I know of any chicken that comes inside for a nice warm place to sleep! I would love to get some chickens for our place, I still have to work on my husband for that one. You live in a beautiful area. I love looking at your photos from your farm.

      I think Ms.Ellie likes being with all of us in the house. Chickens are fun to have and fairly easy to care for. I hope you will someday be able to get a few chickens and your kids will love to hold those adorable little chicks 🙂
