It's been awhile since I have posted! You know life keeps going on with work and everyday stresses and you forget to take the time to do the small things that help to destress you, like blogging!

I  am sure everyone is wondering what the title of this post is referring to, back during the summer in June, we decided to become chicken farmers! We are now the proud owners of 7 Rhode Island Red chicks. We have watched them grow from dirty, small scraggly pre-teens to beautiful full grown chickens.

Last night, I was doing my usual evening chores and they were all rather noisier than usual, don't 
let anyone ever try to convince you chickens don't talk, they love too and of course all at one time, Last night in particular they were singing up a storm and gathering around one area of their "tiny home". Apparently they were trying their best to show Mom a surprise, but I was a bit slow to notice.

 Yep, we have our first egg! Nestled in the straw was a rather small brown egg.  It was a proud moment for this chicken mom. I just had to share and if you like the post on the chickens, let me know and I will be happy add them to my daily blogging! It will give me one more place to gloat about our new babies!

Here are the new babies!
Here is the first egg! I know it's small and a bit dirty but it's an egg!! Not sure which one laid it, but 
they all seemed to be very proud moms!

Have a great Saturday! Don't shop too much and make sure you stop to doing something today
you love to do, maybe it will help you feel not quite so stressed during the upcoming holidays!

 Remind youself it's the small stuff that brings a smile to your face the most!

"Super Wubble is up to four times stronger and more tear-resistant than the original Wubble Bubble Ball. Made with a new super stretchy material called Xpandium, it’s super smashable and super squashable. Bounce it, throw it, kick it, smoosh it, smash it, even sit on it!"

My family took the Super Wubble Bubble Ball on this past weekend! We opened the box and found the instructions were simple to read and follow. It came with an air machine to blow it up, one patch in case of a puncture and a Vaseline like jelly to rub on the bubble to make blowing it up easier.

Once we blew it up,(and yes it will blow up to 3 feet), the fun started! It was bounced on each other, thrown up in the air and placed on head's to fit like a hat! It with stood being bounced against the house and kicked across the front pasture,(we live in the country with acreage) by the time we gave it all we had, it looked like a very dirty, brown dusty huge inflated 3 foot pink ball! Yes it withstood all the fun we had and it washed up well to the original clean 3 foot pink bubble we began with!

I would recommend to any kid or adults who loves to play with huge bubbles! It's great for a good afternoon of fun with families! The more people the more fun you will have, but it also can be fun with just one or two people.  Also I found it a "plus" you could deflate it and package it back up until your ready to blow it up and play again!

The only drawback we found, was when we went to blow it up, it seemed to take a very long time to

blow the bubble up. We reread the instructions, but finally we resorted to blowing up with a air compressor in the garage. Perhaps it could have been our impatience to play with it and we may have not given the air blower enough time to blow it up, but I feel I would want to know this if I was buying the product. Even with this minor problem we all decided we would all still buy the "Wubble Bubble" even if we were aware of this minor momentary set back.

Getting a New Car

Be sure to check out my latest article on
Take a look around you may be able to find your "Dream Car"!

Fall is my favorite time of the year, soon everywhere you look, you will see smiling orange pumpkins and scarecrows popping up.  Looking in the yard I can already see the leaves on the tree's have started changing to bright reds, yellow and orange.  I take a sip of iced tea and plump up the pillows in the lounge chair and take a deep breath and relax. It's a beautiful Saturday morning and I am going to take every bit of it in! I just might make a loaf of  pumpkin bread for the husband who has been feeling older lately, although I don't think 61 is old! Maybe this will give him a boost! I head back inside and start gathering all my supplies for pumpkin bread. It's just what this "older" couple needs is comfort food, I giggled to myself. 
Soon hubby comes running into the house and smells the bread cooking and smiles. Smells good, it takes me back to my Mom's house at the start of fall, she would always keep the house smelling of pumpkin and spices all September and October. He gives me a kiss on the cheek and heads out the back door, I wonder where he is headed to, he usually tells me, but he had that certain twinkle in the eye this morning. I couldn't help but wonder what he was up to, but whatever it is, seems he is back to his happy self. 
Buying a new car can be exciting, but it's also a huge purchase, and for some can be worrisome.  Today dealerships have tried to take away the stress of buying your dream vehicle, Now you can, in the comfort of your own home, pull up the web site for your dealership and locate your make and model of car and even find your favorite color. If they don't have what your looking for, you can contact a salesperson on the net and give him/her the specifics and he/she can help you find that particular dream car, You can even go over the price and check to see if any extras have been added on to increase the price, now when you get to the dealership you will not go into price sticker shock. Soon the salesperson calls to let you know your dream car has been located and you can come down to the dealership and pick it up. 
While taking the last loaf of pumpkin bread out of the oven I hear a loud motor, which almost sounds like a race car passing by the front of the house.  Little did I know this is what put the happy twinkle in my husbands eyes.  He comes in the back door and remarks how wonderful the house smells, but he needs me to come look at something for a minute, if I have the time. Sitting in our driveway where the old "family car" sat, now sat a shiny new blue sports car. I look over at my husband and ask if this was his surprise and he nodded his head and pulls out two sporty looking hats one for each of us. Next think I know I am riding down the road in our new car! My husband pulls up to the red light and hollers over the motor do you feel old now? I yell back, no I feel like a teenager again! Amazing what a new car can do for your morale!
