My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, ... thank you!


Found a snake by my house this morning. Just a garter snake as I later discovered by googling "colorado snakes" but still is freaking me out. Especially since I found it by the back door, and after I screamed, it slithered under my garage.  MY GARAGE!

I'm still freaking.

Yes, I know they aren't poisonous but still, I hate snakes.

This weekend we're mowing, trimming and cleaning up all yard area near the house. And from now on, my son (and, of course all of us) are NOT allowed outside without wearing boots.

Hope my chickens go after the snakes and eat them.  Especially hope my mama hen with 6 2-week-old babies keeps them safe.
