Clearing the Camera

Here are some pictures I took over the weekend -

This is Baby, our outdoor cat. She came with the house! The guy we bought the place from asked if we wanted her since this is the only home she's ever known. Of course we said yes! She's so pretty and such a sweetheart.

More critters! Found these guys while working on our compost bin (more to come on that later!). 

I didn't get any pictures of it, but today I saw something just as creepy and science fiction-y as the stick bugs. I was hanging out with the chickens and one of them ate the body of a daddy long legs that was right in front of me. One of the legs fell out of the chicken's mouth and started twitching! Just the skinny leg of the spider, moving on its own. Thought I was just imagining things, so I looked again and still twitching! Sat there in awe for a couple minutes until I picked up the leg and ran to find David to show him. As usual, I guess he's seen this sort of thing before because he wasn't nearly as shocked as I was. I swear that thing twitched for a good 5 minutes before I tossed it and tried to make sense of it all in my mind. Crazy. Definitely felt like a kid again today on that one.



  1. Looking forward to hearing about that compost bin! And how cute is that little frog (or toad??)....I think even I would hold it. Tell Baby we say hello, she is a little doll!

  2. Hopefully we can finish the compost bin this weekend! Not sure if it's a toad or frog haha. I'm definitely not good at animal identification!
    And I'll give Baby your love :)

  3. Just browsing through your photographs, they are absolutely beautiful! We live in Wildwood, Missouri, I see you are in MO too!
