Despite us having one day this past week of true bliss where you could swear Spring was about to arrive, we received the harsh reminder that winter is still here.  A snowstorm was on the way the next day.  We were fortunate to have escaped most of it.  Initially we were expected to get 5-10 inches of snow, then it changed to 10-18 inches and in reality we received a couple of inches of snow and ice.  Usually when we receive ice we lose power but this time, thankfully, we did not and we were sooooooo grateful.

Regardless of the cold weather, egg production is getting back to full swing thanks to the sun.  It's so nice to have that wonderful brightness all day and into early evening.  It certainly lifts the spirits of people AND chickens.

J managed breakfast duty this weekend.  He's really getting it down well.  I told him that should be his meal.  He could be a breakfast chef.  Unfortunately, he wasn't convinced.

Speaking of J, I've written before that my husband and I do everything together and have a very good relationship, however, I have just asked him to please stop sharing everything.  Namely, his germs.  I was sick about a month ago because he shared his yucky germs and here I am again, sick, at the tail end of his sick week.  If only I could pick and choose which symptoms I get/don't get -  I could do without the jabbing headache that comes with it.  Fingers crossed this will pass.  Soon.

So, because I haven't felt good since Wednesday, it was a pretty low-key weekend.  So much for the weekend to-do list.

In business news, my very talented sister-in-law brought us 2 boxes of handmade washcloths and soap savers to put in the Etsy store.  They compliment our products so well and are beautiful!

Hoping you are having a wonderful weekend!

Hi Staci... Hope you're feeling better. Love you pictures! The black and white photos of the boys are gorgeous and the food looks yummy.
I know we are all getting tired of the winter. Spring is on the way, I feel it.
Take care!

Feel better soon! Before you shared that you were sick I was ready to head over to play with the pups and eat some yummy food! I don't think I can handle any more germs. Hope you kick it very quickly!

Your winter pictures of the snow and ice are stunning!
Love the new washcloths! That fits in so nicely with your products!
Hope you have some magical chicken soup to chase those germs away!

It's so icy there! At least it wasn't as bad as forecasted and you didn't lose power! Our weekend was insane. Saturday was sunny, breezy, and in the 70s. So wonderful! Then Sunday it was 30 degrees, snowing, and very windy. Such a contrast!

PS - So sorry you are feeling under the weather! I hope you get better soon. Lots of rest will hopefully do the trick.

Hate to bother you when you feel bad Staci, but that picture of the Chicken Chili stopped me in my tracks. I've looked your site over and couldn't find the recipe...could you share it when you get a chance? Thanks so much! (p.s. lots of warm fluids and colloidal silver works wonders)

Thanks Daisy and Tammy - yes, lots of ice although it's melting now.

Thanks so much Suzie!

MSTXGigi - yes, the recipe will be up on the blog Monday. It was really good!! :)

Hope you're feeling better soon. I think we could all use a little warmth with that extra daylight. We had 8 inches of snow yesterday, which I think is a St. Patrick's Day record for the Eastern Shore.
Beautiful ice pics, hopefully in a few weeks we'll all be photographing flowers. Love the washcloths!
