Oh, joy! Rapture! I have been eating icky old eggs from Costco all winter and egg breakfasts quickly lost their appeal when the real eggs became unavailable. Since I am trying to lose some more weight, daily oatmeal is out. Even bland, pale eggs are better than nothing. Finally, though, eggs have become affordable at the Farmer's Market. They will fill the gap until my friend Tammy's hens begin laying an abundance again.

Real Eggs 1.30.10

Monday's breakfast will be Extreme Veggie Scramblers along with a smoothie to up the amount of breakfast greens.

Playoffs? Playoffs!??

Vik is really enjoying the Vikings vs Cowboys game, so far. I really need to get that handsome kid a Vikings jersey.

Our History

I brought over the posts from my old blog that I cared to save. Read further to go back in time with my Lambies. From here on out, all posts will be new. :)

The Colestead Line

Have I told you about my favorite herbal products yet? My friend, Mother Of Blessings, makes her products with all-natural and organic ingredients and
they are just great! I have used her Immune Booster for several years. Along with a healthy diet, I credit it with keeping us cold and flu free for a LONG time!

I have also personally used the Boo-Boo Cream. I use it almost daily, truthfully. It goes on any scrapes, bug bites, rashes and dry spots, that happen so frequently around here.

Go visit The Colestead on Etsy and try a product. You won't be sorry!

Timothy at Reece's Rainbow

Oh. my. I know I shouldn't do it! I spent some time on Reece's Rainbow last night....and fell in love with Timothy. After a quick inquiry, I found that we don't meet the income guidelines, so unless the Lord works a MIRACLE, we will not be the parents of this gorgeous boy.

However, we (and you!) can help him find his forever family. We can donate to his adoption fund here and pray, pray, pray that he is adopted soon. Children with Down Syndrome are routinely institutionalized at age 4 or 5 and generally don't live very long after that, depending on the facility. It's a terrible thing to have a disability in these countries.

Let's be the hands and feet of Jesus in this world and take advantage of this life-changing opportunity on Timothy's behalf!

A New Fuzzy Friend

I was perusing "Farm and Garden" over at Craig's List yesterday, looking for chicken related items. I came upon an ad for an angora-lop bunny for sale, inexpensively, with a cage, food and water bottle included. I showed the picture to the Lambies, who, of course, fell in love. With Daddy's permission, I called the owner. He was so delighted to have a family adopting the bunny, he didn't even charge us the price he had listed!


Her given name is Cocoa, but my husband is pondering a clever, funny name.
ETA: Her new name is Snickerdoodle. I love it!


Yeah for another organic-manure-maker at our little homestead!


We had a terrific Christmas. I love being with my family and seeing the happiness of the children as they receive gifts in celebration of our Lord's birth.



They enjoy my happiness, too!
