"Butterfly Fly Away"

Sad news, Jazz passed away yesterday at 5:51pm with all of us around her. We cried and buried her right next to J.D. She won't be lonely up in heaven.

Prayers Needed for Jazz

This is Jazz and how we came about her is a long story. She is a rescue baby chick. Yesterday we had some dear friends come by, Anita and Dennis. On their way home they stopped by Petsmart for dog food for their "kids." At Petsmart was a lady that found this baby chick in her yard. She had no idea where it came from and no idea how to care for it. Without hesitation, Anita called us!

Without even thinking about it, we jump into the Seehafer Farm mini-van to the rescue! A BABY CHICK NEEDS OUR HELP!!!

As soon as we got her home, we got her body temperature up and try her to get to drink water, she was not doing that on her own very much. Jazz (we named her in memory of Dennis and Anita's wonder dog that passed away last year - Jazz was a wonderful dog!) was crying a bunch so I put a couple of stuffed animals in there for comfort and warmth... which believe it or not... WORKED! All night Brian and I were checking on her and the tempature of the baby roost. It was still touch and go with Jazz not drink water on her own.

We came up with a bright idea and as soon as it was 8am in the morning, we headed to Garr's (in Mount Juliet) and bought Jazz four new Bantam brothers and sisters (not sure what we have - straight run.)

Jazz is actually drinking water now with them and sleeping hard with her new siblings. We still need prayers for this little one. Jazz is not out of the woods yet.

Nothing like adding new "kids" to a house hold... breathes new life into it.

Memorial Day

The Seehafer family want to thank all the men, women and their families for their sacrifice, bravery and commitment.

Thank you so very much. You all are in our prayers.

Here's the herb garden on the side of the house. It's so nice to walk out the door to get fresh herbs for recipes.

Stormy Weather

The winds last night were just... windy! It was actually windy all day yesterday. We were blessed here to have all our trees to remain upright this morning. Some near by counties in Tennessee had lots of trees come down last night. Thankfully, the news reports that no one got hurt.

Remembering Bubba

I'll try to catch up everyone on Brian's giant pumpkin.

Here's the start and preparation for the pumpkin. Brian places plastic on the soil to warm it up. Brian uses one of my meat thermometer to keep track of the tempature.

While we're waiting for everything to warm up, Brian starts growing the plant. This year, the spare bedroom closet is the incubator.

Brian named the pumpkin plant "Bubba" this year.

Brian also built this great wind-breaker...

The young pumpkin plant is very vulnerable to wind and heavy rain... which we are getting a bunch of.

This is Bubba earlier today. Bubba is outgrowing his windbreaker and Brian is thinking about making a add-on. The plant still needs protection from the weather until the vine grows out and establishes roots to anchor it down.

It's official, "Pumpkin Time" is on!

On the 6th day...

It's the sixth day after surgery and my hands are doing great. They're not falling asleep anymore and I'm not having to shake them awake! Also, the feeling in my thumbs are coming back but... I'm thinking I shouldn't be typing right now... hee hee!

Everything is going good here. The girls are happy and healthy...

and out in the mud today. I was thinking about putting this little picnic table in our antique booth but when I mentioned it to them, Blanche gave me a "look"...

see... it's a mean look.

Restless Night

This is what the moon looked like at 2:27am this morning. I haven't been sleeping much lately because I have a bad case of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. As a matter of fact, I am having surgery on both wrists tomorrow. I'll be out of commission for at least two weeks.

Brian and I did have a chance this past weekend to hit the road in search for the future "Seehafer Farm." We got in the truck with four farms to look at towards the north and before we knew it...

we were in Franklin Kentucky!

It's absolutely beautiful up there. Farmland as far as the eye can see. Brian loved it there...

but no luck yet. We're still looking.
