Having fun with nothing

A few weeks ago my brother and SIL stopped by to see the chicken coop in progress (they are also raising chickens this year and have built a pretty awesome coop themselves). My SIL and I pretty much live the same way - simple and organic. Both lovers of Nature.

Something my SIL said really stuck with me... ''we have fun with nothing''. So true ! I find pleasure and joy right in my back yard, gardening, campfire making and now raising chickens.

This evening in pictures :

Strawberry bed looking nice and green.

New this year, our in-ground garden. We still have our 9 raised beds beside the back door.

Dave the camp fire maker.

First night the chicks were let outside in their run. They did'nt venture too much further than the little ramp at the door. I am enjoying this chicken raising so much.

You are so lucky to be able to have fires in your backyard - I love camp fires - I would be enjoying them all summer long.

Hi Vickie ~ I'm thankful that I'm able to have fun with nothing too , my parents lived simple , so it's second nature to me.
Your strawberry bed looks great , I've got to move mine , put it near the chicken coop and that's not working so well when I let them out to free-range.

~ Happy Blessings ~
