They Got Chickens

These two Princesses are tasked to look after the chickens that Mike entrusted them. They love chickens so much and I believe the chickens love them back although sometimes Princesses M tend to be a bit harsh handling her chicken. Anyway, they check the chickens right after they come home from school and gather the egg every day.

They are doing good with their job so far and it is with pleasure going to the fenced in coops and enjoy chasing the chickens. As you can see in the picture, these girls are showing much love and posed for their beloved chickens.

We plan of buying more in Spring and two goats for me. Hopefully everything works fine as planned.

Fishing with Uncle Mike

So here’s the very first activities we did the day after we arrived at Mike’s ranch. First, we had to go into the wooded part of his property to get some bamboos to make them into our fishing poles. Going into the woods was quite a challenge for us especially for the girls for there lots of thorny vines all over the place, dead twigs, muddy paddles and a chance of stepping into a snake!

But with Mike’s guidance and navigation, we were able to get what we wanted to get that day. Then, we headed back to his house and cleaned the bamboos, smooth it and get it ready for fishing by tying a line on the tip and used paperclips for the moment.

After setting up the fishing poles, we head out back to the bigger creek and began what had to be the longest wait for the fish to eat the bait, we used cheese at that time for Mike couldn’t find any earth worms at all.

Of course, the second day, he had to make it right and bought us the proper line which is the nylon, a crappie bait and a fishing hook.

Nothing beats the country life, it takes us outdoors and made us admire the beauty of nature all the more.

The Two Princesses’ First Country Life Experience

We spent 4 nights and 4 days at a ranch owned by our friend, Mike in Avery, east of Texas. I am glad we were able to get away from the house for a short period of time and took advantage of the Spring break. Also, I did not have to attend to the old lady across the street so everything fell into places and we were able to have a good time away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The two Princesses had their first country life experience and they did not just like it there, they LOVED it. In fact, during those days we stayed at the ranch, none of them or any of my family talked about going home too soon. If I did not tell my husband to go home after 4 days, I don’t think he would go back any moment but we have obligations at home so we must.

The last moment of our stay at Mike’s, the girls did not or were not ready to leave and wanted to stay a couple more days. Even after we got home, they seemed to have not overcome the country experience. They were having a blast, truly. Because there are so many things to do out there that kept them occupied and be active. Two creeks that we can go fishing, an open and wide field to run, chase/play with dogs, early morning dirt road hike and so many other things.

There will be many country life postings next time. So keep coming back!
