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...Still...Coming...
My little chicks are still en route. I am a bit worried. The journey can be arduous for the little hatchlings and ours now have 2 days instead of one. We'll spend the day prepping for Miriam, Naomi, and Hannah to arrive early tomorrow morning. I called the post office and they told me the moment they hear the peeping they'll call.
We ordered an australorp, easter egger, and plymouth barred rock. All known for their great dispositions and egg laying abilities.
