Oh good gravy, these ducks! The saga of the big mess continues. I headed to Huntsville for a photography meet-up and then a few updates. Also, a Q & A is coming, so send me your questions! (Family friendly of course.)
There’s so much that happened this week! First a coffee event, then a tour of downtown Huntsville shops. Fence building, coop cleaning, kayaking…all in a hurry before we get more blasted rain!
Oh goodness gracious, what messy ducks! And I thought chicks were messy. The ducks’ brooder was getting soaked every time we cleaned the bedding so I came up with a great idea to fix it. It worked!

In this episode I shared a couple hauls from Costco and Tractor Supply. I planted some trees that I got a great deal on, and the dogs had a hay day.
This is a paid partnership with Costco to help spread the word about this event. I was recently reached out to by Costco to see if I would like to come do a little shopping and share the word about a great event coming up for military members and veterans.
