The Chicken Project

It’s not exactly an identity crisis; I just happen to be a small city girl who loves the notion of “country”.  I’ve gotten my country fix quite easily just by taking occasional drives through the more rural parts of our area, filling the house with some country décor and of course, listening to country music.   208 more words

The temps here have been horrible. Seems we skipped directly into July and August weather. Most days it’s been in the mid to upper 90s and when it’s a cool day it dips all the way to 90/91. 515 more words
