Blogging. . . . .

I read so many blogs, I look at the followers meter, sometimes there are only eight, sometimes 500. I look at mine and see all of the lovely people that don't even know me, but still follow. They don't know what I do on a day to day basis, or what school subjects are my favorite, but they still follow. I look at blogs that have 3 to 4 giveaways in a year, or ones that haven't ever done one, but still those want to do one, but wonder 'Will they even enter?' I see blogs that photography contests, and ones that have some type of weekly poll or picture thing.

I am rambling now (notice that name of my blog?) but I really do want to have a give a way, and I really do want to have a photo thingy, but something is pulling me back, my followers, yes, my followers. I dearly love each and every one of you! I want to do a 50 followers give a way, but I tell you what, I don't think that I would get very people with only 17 lovely (faithful) followers. I try to tag the girls with the most followers, but that gets kinda weird tagging one person, time after time.

I want to know one thing though, if I were to have a give a way, or any other type of contest, would you enter? Would you want to participate, or even look at the post? Would you spread the word about it, even if you had to wait weeks to participate? Would you? I want to know it HONESTLY!!!

With much love,

Maggies Photo Challenge

Goodness, this is the first photo challenge that I have ever done! EPP!!! Anyway, when the 'faces in everyday places' was typed out in Maggies Post, I was extremely excited! I knew Icould find one outside somewhere, but I got out there, very disapponited, but I thought of a movie, can you guess which one, 3 letters, and it is either in your Garage or driveway! Don't know, then look at the picture and then answer!

Can you see the face? I can! Did you figure out the movie? CARS OF COURSE!!!!! The windshield (eyes) Ford thingy (Nose) and the little vent thing on top of the Liecense Plate (Mouth) I know this is hard to see, but you must have seen the face by now.

Live tonight at 7:30 PM!!!

This is Anne, with One blessed acres news, tonight Dad B. and Anne B. did their normal chickens, they kenneled them, and counted, but one thing that was new was some sound, a small, faint peeping. What it was, they didn't know - until they turned on the light and 7/8 eggs that a Mama had been sitting on were there. The peeping contuined, and then Anne exclaimed "DAD I SEE IT!!!" What a site to see a chick in the coop! The mama and baby are safe in in coop!

**Note: Another has hatched, unfortunalty, due to stress levels, it died only minutes after being hatched. No pictures were taken of this one**

**Note: ANOTHER ONE IS HATCHED!!!! That only makes 2 chicks, and LORD willing, the rest will hatch and they will all become healthy, happy, and good egg layers (*wink, wink*) chickens!!!!!

Signing off,


The last great summer adventure!

As most of you may know, we have chickens (that is kinda hard NOT to know, right?) which has kept us from any NORMAL summer vacation. We own a trailer, but we used it only a few times (okay 1 once this summer and I have to get my MOTHERS photos) And so dad decided that we needed to see Cali, and get some heat to *big grin!!* Of course that means pictures, but many pictures, and a few videos! (you will have to turn the music off!) This is a 3 or 4 part post *giggles*

Stop 1: The ocean

One word LOL

A log tunnel, oooooo

The OCEAN!!!!

The little wig wam that was built on the shore!

George, he was already eating the sand *smiles*

More ocean!

More ocean!

Still more ocean

Can you guess?

The bolder out in the ocean, I just was in aw of it!


The lumber saw that hung above the enterance to ranger station

The GIANT (plastic) redwood in the ranger station! Dad was playing the game when I snapped the picture!

The Farmers Market . . . .

As I flip through my journal (to find what I need for this post ;) I realized I had History reading, liturature, sewing, and then I still had to eat my brownie ;) so I need to hurry this post :) As you all know, we did the farmers market for a few weeks, well that first week, NO CAMERA, I know, what a shame.

I FOUND IT!!!! Here is what we brought . . . . Sold . . . .

4/4 Zucchini
6/6 dozen eggs
1/1 Cabbage
2/10 leaf lettuce
3/3 Romanie Lettuce
1/3 Parsley Bunch
3/10 Resuable Shopping Bags

We did pretty good, Huh?? What, you want the pictures - okay! (*Note, the farmers market sign is blurred as I didn't want to show the city, and there is a line through one of the pictures, as I agian, didn't want personal info*)

(I forgot to Watermark :( The sign, I thought it was pretty cute!

What, no more zucchini, well we did sell 2 right when we got there!



The reusable bags, hand made, of course


All of the lettuce, it was leaf!

The one and only head of cabbage, we sold right before closing!

Like I said, we sold two right away, but we sold these a little later!

She's ready to go!

And so is he!

The parsley, it is STILL coming out of our eyeballs!

The romanine, the person next to us had bigger and healtheir looking ones!

Blackberries . . .

As harvest time approachs (actually, it has begun ;) we went down the street to the blackberry bushes that grew wild! We had so much fun, well I fell into the bush :) Hannah was NOT happy to be there after that ;)We got about 6-8 gallons of berries this year, and for us to pick them, we will let the bush know to produce more next year - and we will get TWICE as many! Enjoy the pictures - I hope to download more off the camera tomorrow so be on the look out for tire swings, silly faces, and probably to harvesting pic ;)

(I MUST give Abby all the credit, well she did take MOST of the photos, THANKS ABBY!!!)
