Truth: I don’t especially love being HOT in the summer!
Hello summer season! Only one week into summer and we’re having a heat wave! Oh boy!!! Inspired by the season I’m in kitchen creating new COOL recipes for Slimming Smoothies for my new book which will soon be available! Check out one of my latest, Revitalize Blueberry Smoothie!
Here’s a quick story for you! A dream I’ve had for many years is to have barn yard animals! ? About a month ago, I was given 4 baby chicks! I brought them home about 3 weeks ago and have been settling in with a new routine to be sure the chicks are getting all that they need! Here’s a photo taken a week ago with my puppy & the chicks getting a little more acquainted…
I must admit it was a little nerve racking at first but everyone seems to be fine and my sweet girl gives me the impression that she really likes the flock!
My backyard is coming along with my garden & my chicks! I love how simple it is to grow my own garden with my Tower Garden system! If you’re interested in learning more about it please reply and I’m happy to share more details with you!
