A bit about us, a lot about our critters and plants, and much about the goings-on "home on the farm". We try to make use of things that we grow here on our small place with an emphasis on plants and herbal items. Our goal is to try to live a greener and more natural life and leave our place on Earth better than when we arrived here!
This Saturday, September 26th is National Public Lands Day and is the day to visit your local National Park - for FREE! Go HERE to see which parks are participating and then go out on Saturday and celebrate our great Nation and Nature.
*The next date (and final one for 2015) is November 11th, Veterans Day.
As many of you know, I have chickens. LOTS of chickens. One of the bonuses and sometimes quandaries, that goes along with this is LOTS of eggs! I have been developing quite the collection of egg-heavy recipes to help use up these lovely little presents I'm gifted with daily. This is one of my (and Mr MoonCat's) favorites. We pretty much eat this once a week when the girls are laying in abundance. Enjoy.

Our lives will never be the same after this fateful day. Please take a moment to remember the victims and their families, the heroes and the unity felt across our great nation in the aftermath. We need to find that unity again before it is too late.
There is a lot of happy dancing going on around this place tonight. One of our all-time favorite TV series is back! Longmire's long awaited Season 4 is available TODAY on Netflix. Hubby and I did a marathon viewing of the first 3 episodes last year when we finally got internet service that would stream Netflix. We were hooked on the series after the very first episode, only to find that it had been cancelled. What the heck is wrong with the idiots at A & E? (This isn't the only series we love that they have cancelled..) Anyways, Netflix to the rescue! They were smart enough to see the absolute obsessed cult following this show has and did some negotiating to order the 4th season. Whoo hoo, yay Netflix! So today is the day, we are finally getting to have another fix of one our favorite cowboy lawmen and his trusty sidekicks. We are re-watching the last episode of season 3 first to reacquaint ourselves with the happenings and then we're good to go. It's going to be a late night here. Pop that popcorn hubby.
