"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"! Laura Ingalls Wilder

I'm writing tonight because in the morning the girls and I are headed to the valley to visit Hillary and Monte. I'll be gone for 3 days and will come back without Erin.  She will stay and spend some sister time with her big sis while Monte is putting in some overtime.  Then they will all come home for Easter!  And if that's not enough excitement to keep me up tonight...

Admittedly a poor first photo.  But it's all I could get.  Larry didn't get home with the
hennies until after I had begun serving dinner for our Monday night prayer group.
Erin ran out with the camera to get at least one picture of Mr. hopeful
giving the  girls the grand tour... and a subtle hint!

Shhh... the chickens are asleep in the hen-house!!  Finally.
See you in 3 days...

Blessings,  Debbie


  1. Cluck...cluck....cluck! Hope you have a wonderful time. Easter blessing to you and the family. Maa

  2. I'm sure they will lay soon. If not already. Saying that, our first lot of hens were rare breeds and they took months before they began to lay. We decided they were too posh to push! Eventually they did lay, but never as many as our hybrids do. Hope you have a lovely family time.

  3. Love the "hint" to the hens! LOL! Enjoy your trip.

  4. The valley is especially lovely right now! Have a great trip, and I hope your hens live up to your expectations!

  5. Have a safe trip, and a wonderful time visiting your daughter and son-in-law. How many chickens do you have? I hope they start laying for you soon!

  6. Have fun and I look forward to stories when you get back. Your chicken house is wonderful and I love the picture with the egg carton that is totally hopeful.

  7. I know you'll have a wonderful time. Happy to hear you're feeling better; hoping for much success with the "layers"!

  8. Oh have a wonderful time...Blessings Debbie and Happy Easter!!!

  9. Enjoy this special time, Debbie, and hope you will share when you get back.
    Wishing you and your family a most blessed Easter.

  11. HAHAHAHA! That's so funny. Hope they got the hint, and I hope your sister time and Easter are just wonderfully blessed. This made me smile!

  12. Woo-Hoo!! Go biddies!! (I mean the chickens.)
