Farm Girl Fitness–August 26, 2020

When I do a shorter workout, I often like to focus on stretching or weights. Today, I’m working on my splits. Way back when, I was a cheerleader, and I could do a full split on both sides. Maybe someday, I’ll get there again.

Farm Girl Fitness–August 19, 2020

Some days my workouts are really hard and I’m so sore the next day. So I try to mix things up and do a slightly easier one the next day after I do a tough video. These videos from Shelley MacDonald are wonderful. They’re just a little over 20 minutes, so I often pick one…

After the Rain

This storm was spectacular, although it really didn’t rain much. And what it left behind…breathtaking. I have never understood the appeal of city living. I wouldn’t want to ever miss moments like this. I guess I’m just a country girl through and through.

Salad Greens

I ordered some seeds a few weeks ago from Pinetree Garden Seeds. I want to grow some salad greens this fall. This is what I got. I found a few empty spots in my garden and sprinkled some endive and red romaine in there. I really like that you can squeeze salad greens in tiny…

Farm Girl Fitness–August 12, 2020

This workout is one of my favorites. See, I’m 40 and I’ve worked my body hard in the last 30 years. I spent my high school years playing sports, seldom thinking about what I was doing to my joints and muscles. In the last 15 years, I’ve farmed, working hard every day. There is damage…

Kitchen Update

In the last few years, we’ve done some work updating my kitchen. It took a ton of work and patience, but we added new lighting, replaced the countertops, and added a tile backsplash. My husband did all the lighting. I’m especially happy with the undercabinet lighting. I turned 40 this year and I’m getting to…

Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

I was making this recipe last night and I thought, I need to share this recipe with my blog people. I was a newlywed with a little baby when I ran across it. Of course, at that time we were poor as church mice, (why are church mice poor? Are they poorer than regular mice?)…

Farm Girl Fitness-August 5, 2020

I discovered POPSugar fitness on YouTube earlier this year. I love this channel. They have hundreds of videos of all lengths and difficulties with all kinds of focuses. This is the video I did this morning. For about half of the video, I was able to do the harder moves. For the other half, I…

Farm Girl Fitness–How I Got Here

Remember, just cause you’re a farm girl, it doesn’t mean that fitness is completely out of your mind. As you get older, you have to be intentional to stay strong, flexible, and healthy.

Kitchen Clutter

I despise clutter in my kitchen but this time of year, things like what’s pictured above tend to pile up. It’s that time of year when veggies pile up almost every day. I can look at it as clutter or I can appreciate the beautiful colors of the beans, tomatoes, blueberries, and eggplant. When you…

Cluckey

If you’re new to keeping chickens, at some point something may happen that may startle you. You may go out to check on your ladies just like you would any other day. Except there seems to be something wrong with one of your girls. She seems unsettled. If you try to bother her she may…

A Treehouse

Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to live in a bush or tree? A mama bird chose a lovely place to make a home for her family. Our blueberry bushes are bearing like crazy and these guys just sit there and watch us pick. We try to pick quickly because it really…
