Busy, Busy

I have not written in so long! Time is just flying by.

After getting my degree in 2010, I finally managed to snag my first job in my field. Although it is only a temp job and will be over soon, I am incredibly happy with the opportunity. It is definitely a job that I am loving, and every day I am still surprised that they are paying me to wander around through Missouri's prairies and identify native plant species. It is something I would have gladly done for free... but shhh, don't tell them that.

Because of my new job, I am still getting accustomed to being away from the farm all day. It just never seems like there is time to sit down and write about what has been going on around here! I promise I did not abandon you, dear readers! I just need to get myself into a new rhythm.

Since I do not like posts without pictures, here are the chickies sprinting around in the yard before the grass got all brown and crispy:

I hope everyone is staying cool out there! Let's all get together and do a rain dance.


  1. Congrats on your new job..maybe it will work into something permanent (fingers crossed).

    I just love the photo of your chickens scampering around under you line..just perfect.

    Have a wonderful weekend! xo

  2. What Sherri B. said :-)

    Don't abandon us, your faithful readers, but have fun with your new job!

  3. dear I so know of what you speak! Only I'm an oldster that went back to work after a 4 year retirement...and I'm having a very tough time getting into the swing of things. I have missed your posts and hope you just pop one out once in awhile...that's the way I've had to do it. Enjoy life!

  4. Great news on the new job, I'd LOVE to have that kind of "job"! Well, except maybe for the chiggers and ticks.

  5. Yay on working with something you enjoy. :)

  6. Great to hear from you and hope your job leads on to another which you can enjoy as much. As far as rain dances are concerned I’m back indoors after getting soaked yet again outside. My poor plants are suffering with root rot due to all the rain we have been having in South Wales for weeks now!

  7. Re-read The Tale of Vent Kitty (always makes me smile) just now and was wondering how the vent kitties are doing.
