This week my Husband thought the chickens in one coop stopped laying (as some times they do).
I heard a chicken in the front yard, Bocking her heart out the other day and 45 minutes later, I realized she was still bocking in the front yard.
 I went out to wear she was and moved the bush....
There were 10 eggs under the bush! 
I guess they didn't slow their laying after all!

Wind Socks

After Christmas (clearance!) I picked up several rolls of ribon. 
Each roll is 300 ft. 
I use it now and again for gifts and garb.
 Today I didn't even use entire rolls, but I cut up ribons for the 2nd grade class to weave into windscoks!
The entire project cost me about $6 (that includes Ribbon, Staples and Tape!)

Teacher Appreciation



Mothers Day Class Craft

I think I found my Brand New Best Friend!!!!!
 Plaster of Paris!

 Some kids chose totes, some kids chose these shapes and I will glue magnets to the back!

I have a bunch of these totes......
I thought my daughters 2nd grade class could paint a picture on them for a mothers day gift!
 So, I sprayed some primer onto the lettering in hopes it would cover it up enough to make a solid back drop for the kids to paint on.

Didn't exactly turn out the way I planned, but still, pretty good for 2nd graders.  Some did murals, like these, others did.....other things!

They turned out pretty good....for second graders, after all!

Salsa Review

I never used to be a huge fan of salsa....unless it was my aunts homemade FRESH salsa (she's from Mexico).

BUT recently, I have tasted some really yummy salsa's - ALL of which are a homemade or home mixed. I have been so into salsa that if I have it in the house I HAVE to eat it for all three meals until it's gone. No, I'm not kidding.

I found this recipe on a blog and tried it this week.

1can Ro-Tel Diced Tomatoes w/Green Chile's

1can Mexican Stewed Tomatoes


I found this recipe to be SO DELICIOUS! I used S&W but next time I will try a different brand since S&W was a bit too hot for my families taste - we are hot food wimps.

I highly recommend this recipe!
