t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.
The Chicks are Coming, The Chicks are Coming!
Last night I ordered 3 baby chicks. I know. Crazy woman on .2 acres trying to have a farm. I don't have any spare minutes as tonight I returned from a fabulous mountain biking date with my husband and had an email that my chicks would be arriving TOMORROW! When I ordered it said the next hatching was July 13th. Wow. We are scrambling to get ready for our new little ones. I'll post some pictures tomorrow. I was told they will probably arrive at 6 am. Yikes. I don't have food or heat...I had better get cracking.
