Things I'm Dying to Tell You

1. I've been buying raw fresh milk from a local farm. It's THE BOMB. Also Mariah isn't allergic to it. She's allergic to store bought milk, but not raw milk. Explain that one.

2. We still have 5 chickens making their home in our backyard. One almost got eaten by a hawk....but didn't.

3. They're finally laying eggs! Three or four a day.

4. I made my own mozzarella cheese today and it's good!

5. I'm officially a freak! (deduced from the first four items I've been dying to tell you).

Ummmmmmm, also my kids are doing great. The house is great. I'm still homesick, but it comes and goes.

Pictures are coming as soon as I can find my camera battery charger. I've been looking [read: gazing aimlessly] for it everywhere. I have so many wonderful chicken pictures to share with you! Aren't you excited?!?!?!*

*Please refer to #5.


  1. It was so fun to see a post from you! I can't believe you made cheese! How? I want to try! I'm jealous, and excited for you that you have fresh eggs EVERYDAY!!! And, raw milk, yum. So good for the "gut". :) If you're a freak, so am I.

  2. I"m so jealous that you you made cheese! I saw a kit for that the other day and was sorely tempted. Can't wait to see pictures :)

  3. You make you own cheese too! Wow, you have got to be one busy lady.Wish you would post your life more. It sounds very interesting but with growing and making all the things you do, I guess you have no time for blogging.
