Life....My daily musing

Sometimes, I swear I need a decoder ring for my life.  Often it seems I spend much of my time trying without reward to understand just what in the blazes is going on.  Many days I am held captive by the whims of others in their garish efforts to bring me to right.  I am far better than they understand and I feel as though I have made both adequate and timely progress through it all.
I mean I in no way expect perfection for myself and I will admit most openly that I judge the achievement of getting out of bed with a slightly more merit than most.  Who said, achievement had to be grand?  So I did not solve world hunger, discover a cure for the common cold, for the fact I did not do anything of such relevance but yet I still remain breathing. 
When I examine those who seek to examine such things, I find their purpose-driven lives to be quite bleak and bland and altogether disturbing.  What comes from complete devotion is indifference to life.  For myself, I would rather find a comfy chair in some long-forgotten corner and plop myself down in that said chair with a cup of warm tea and a book. 
At the end of such an endeavor, one is most likely rewarded with a happy ending, if not an overly complicated sad one.  At least it gives comfort and a solid ending. 

Love and Light

These meteorites are a stone type meteorite
Stones such as the ones these earrings are made of constitute the largest group of meteorites that have thus far fallen to earth. Meteorites such as these come from deep space and were likely part of another plant’s crust that broke away and was flung to our side of the galaxy. The black color comes from its trip through our atmosphere where the heat causes it to form what is called, “a fusion crust.” The pitting seen on the outside of the rocks is due to tiny glassy spheres better known as chondrules. These compounds predate our planet and that is why I collect them. It is thought that the very building blocks of life may have arrived on this plant from space rocks such as these. In a way, they are as old as time its self and their song has so much to offer those who are willing or able to listen.
This pair of matched earrings, made from flat black Meteorites are set in rich sterling silver with sterling silver ear wires as well. They measure 16.8 mm in length. If you would like a weight I can by request provide one for you.
The cost of this pair of earring is set at the low affordable price of just $50 plus $7 for priority shipping in the USA, foreign friends please contact me before committing to purchase. Paypal accepted you can email me at

Changes are happing

So Today I got rid of all but one of my Blue bar Pigeons, this cut my breeding flock down by 20 which is good I think.  It will allow me to pay more attention to the rest of the birds and focus on genetics a bit more.  who knows maybe some day I will race them again, not today, though.

This means time to move the rest around and find a long-term home for them as well as a proper head count.

These are the type I will stick with for now...

So that is all I have to report for now....From all of us on the Mountain Be Blessed....

Spring time nears

As springtime nears and the ground and trees come to life I remember to be happy that spring has once again returned to the land and with it all the possibilities that it offers. It is a chance for regrowth, for repurpose and for gratitude.  Even with all the setbacks, we have incurred, I feel that we can now rebuild and go forward with a brighter tomorrow.  

New life always settles a restless soul....

With the loss of over 20 geese last season it had sealed our fate and changed to very nature of how I will deal with thieves in the future.  It is sad that I even have to bring it up, but it was a huge amount of money for our tiny farm.  Sometimes it seems as though we can not catch a break.  Even this we will overcome and we will rebuild.  With the remaining birds, I plan to set eggs and sell as many as I can to raise money to rebuild that flock.  

This is three of the five we have left....

It was so dreadful last year that I had shut down the main producers on the farm as the cost became too high and my best stock was gone. Sometimes life is like that, sometimes it is better.  

This year the trees are in bloom early and many of the blossoms are already set. The birds we have left are starting to lay.

We have found what we believe to be a great home for Morning Sprite who was born on the farm last year.  She is full of passion and will make someone a great horse.  Her book which can be found on Amazon is started to sell and will be updated soon.

 In other news, a new ram is in the works and his name is charlie.  We hope he has a very long life with us here on Mahanaim Farm and that he and his wives provide meat for us for years to come.

Our mini greenhouse is also still holding strong and providing us with a great jump on spring growing.

I know very basic, but sometimes basic is good and this is one of those times.

A few weeks back an Armadillo had that destroyed my outside strawberry bed, I was heartbroken, but at least I had the little cutie above to rebuild with.  I have since purchased new starts and will grow them in window boxes instead of directly in the ground.  I can not take another hit on them, we enjoy strawberries far too much to lose them.  I am also replanting rhubarb as mine has been gone for a long time.  
We have already gotten the onions in the ground and the new garlic, peas, turnips and a few other things, so planting is well underway.

That is about all I have to report for the moment, I am overwhelmed by the amount of stuff I need to get done.  
So from all of us up here on the mountain much love....
From all the kids, critters and the rest of us may your day be filled with joy!

Even though I have not been able to fix the website I have listed it in case anyone in the states might need some eggs.   The dates are bad , but you can email me with any questions before placing an order.  Be Blessed Shekhinah
