Hey hey everyone. Happy freaking Thursday. i wish it was Friday, but hey what can you do? Mel just left to go out of town for a couple of days. I couldn’t go with her do to our new homestead obligations, i.e. the chicks! Therefore I get to go home to my 7 ladies tonight, with no Mel. not as fun, but at least it isn’t an empty house.
I will be missing Mel, but Buoy and Tango will still be there for me when I get home! I am a lucky Canuck!
I thought I would take today’s post to tell ya about the new thingy I just joined. That is Bloglovin’. I use to be a Google Reader fan, until I got that infamous message that they are shutting that shit down. Meh, time to move on I guess. That being said I think I am liking Bloglovin’. It is convenient, sleek looking, and using my Facebook account for all my info. Also, there are lots of bloggers out there that use it! So if you are one of those people please give me a follow, and I will do the same. Then we can take our blog relationship to the next level .
That’s right, we did some talking, and I did a bunch of thinking. Then bam, we came home with some chicks (and not the kind I use to meet in college ha!). It all started with a pizza dinner over at a friends house. When we showed up they needed help with their newly acquired chicken coop. I swear I thought I was in Portland! We then got a chance to take a peak at their newly acquired flock, and I was hooked.
When I was in Grade 2 we actually had a chance to hatch some chicks out of some fertilized eggs. It was a pretty amazing process for me at the time (and still is), and I even got to take one home for a weekend (once it was hatched) to take care of. Continue reading →
This weekend we finally tackled the garden! Well, we started too. The weather was nice Sunday so Mel and I spent the entire morning and afternoon working outside. I tackled the roof (needed the gutters cleared) and Mel worked on cleaning up the million and a half leaves we have on the ground.
Hey guys, I’m Tink, The Running Paintbrush, nice to meet you! Ed has generously given me the opportunity to guest post to give you a taste of what my blog is all about. Thanks, Ed!
I am a half marathoner with dreams of becoming a Disney artist. I’ve been running seriously for over 8 years now, competing in local races and putting in endless laps on the indoor track (curse you, Ohio weather!). I feel most like myself when I’m in my gear, sweaty and stinky!
My love for Disney started early, with my mom raising me on a steady diet of Disney musicals and cartoons. Continue reading →
I thought I would take a post and mention to everyone where else I can be found. Believe it or not, I do write for other sites and I try to be active on social media. Recently I was asked to be a contributor to the site “Inspiration Cafe“. I am really excited for the opportunity to consistently guest post on a site, especially one that focuses on creative projects and ideas.
Ever since I started a Facebook page for my blog, I have wondered how effective would be to actually advertise on Facebook? The cost seemed really reasonable and I have figured that there could be a huge benefit! The thing is I am a true cheapskate. I have been wanting to take my blog a far as I can (monetizing, increasing viewership, doing cool things to write about, etc.), but I am weary about spending much money to do so. I have not really generated any income from the site yet, so all the investment would be out of pocket.
I promised everyone some shots from the Northwest Flower and Garden Show. I really tried to work on my DSLR shooting this go around, and really tried to take all my shots in manual. This is an important step for me and I am really excited to learn more. So without further ado, this is what I came up with.
Last week our restaurant group went and checked out a popular Green Lake Restaurant named “Nell’s“. Mel has been wanting to try it for a while now, and her interest in the restaurant had peaked mine. So I was excited when one member of our group had picked out Nell’s for February’s spot.
