Three Proud Moments...


This week made me smile.
1. I was actually able to pick a ripe tomato from my own garden.
An heirloom variety too!
This has taken me 12 years to accomplish.
Stop laughing and move along.


2.  I am a West Coast Mom featured in WestCoast Families Magazine.
Click on the link and you can read the story on Page 31 & 32.
They actually printed what I said too - no fluffy editing.
Love that.


3.  I was mentioned as a good blog to read in the latest Flea Market Style Magazine.
All in all, a pretty good week.


Oh, and another chicken laid an egg.
Don't know who, but that makes four!
I can officially stop buying eggs.
It really should be four proud moments shouldn't it.

I'm so happy for you! Congrats on your booming business.

The one part in the article that really made me chuckle was when you said "putting the chickens to bed"! I wish I could say that :)

Oh yeah and you look great (of course)!

Congratulations on such a great week from your beautifully ripe tomato (wonderful photo by the way) to your press coverage and 4 eggs! It certainly goes to show that it's the simple things that can make all the difference.
Thanks for sharing

I saw your blog listed in the new Flea Market Finds last week and got so excited!!! Your chickens are very good girls, they have grown so much since we first met them back when they were little biddies! You have done great with them. I bet that tomato tasted sweet!

Those are some proud moments. Tomatoes aren't the easiest things to grow, so I'm with you there.

I read several of your posts and became your new follower. Your chickens are so pretty. I invite you to visit my blog and say hi. Today I posted a review of my book, which I wrote with gals from Ohio and Texas; I am in California.
