Feeding The Birds and All God’s Creatures…

Feeding The Birds and All God’s Creatures…

But not bears I say! Let’s not leave food outside and draw bears near to our homes. It’s that time of year and here in Whitley City, KY. On year a bear was eating out of the dumpster at KFC here and having quite the meal as I’m sure he was happy.

Last year I had put out a really nice bird feeder that 6 or 8 birds could perch in and eat from but the squirrels time and time again would have a feast and swing on it as well. Each time I saw it laying in the yard I would go out into the yard and hang it again never becoming upset because I know squirrels have to eat to

This year I haven’t had a chance to go and pick up any bird feeders as I had been laying the bird feed on a shelf like stand I guess you could say in order for the birds to be able to eat.

I decided today I was going to make a bird feeder as I had saw it done before with water or soda bottles. I just used a 2 liter soda bottle and cut it down.

The Supplies Needed That I Used:


Soda or Water Bottle

Scissors scrapbook or regular scissors

Hole Punch

Twigs or Sticks to fit for birds to perch

Trim it down with scissors to desired size. Then I punched the holes around the outside for me to be abe to run the twigs and sticks through the wholes. I also wrapped it around the twigs for a sturdier hang when hanging on the tree. I placed a piece of a stirofoam on the bottom bit you could use a plastic saucer, plate or lid in order to have a place for the birdseed to fall into and rest. There you have it and now the birds can eat and be satisfied end it’s nice for us to be able to see the different color birds we attract here. I also hung out my. 99 cent hummingbird feeder I’ve had for years and I definitely need to upcycle this one or just purchase a new one period.

I’m just happy I can feed the birds better now. It’s a simple project and children would enjoy it.

Sorry I haven’t written any blogs lately. I’ve been working many hours, taking care of my home, and and chickens.

I have a broody one and 8 pray these babies live. The last ones were duds and it was as if she knew. She came up out of the chicken house one day and left them. My husband did find a dead one and I just got rid of the other eggs.

She came out today to eat and played for a little bit and returned to her eggs. Brave our rooster was being contrary and I scolded him and told him to be nice but our chickens seem happy. Well see if these baby chickens live I sure hope so!

Have a great weekend and leave plenty of water outside this year it’s humid and very hot…

Happy Earth Day…

Happy Earth Day…

Happy Earth Day! This was always a pretty big day in school and I was telling my husband that we would always get to take a tree home to plant when I was in elementary school. I don’t know if area schools S do this but, I think they should. This has always been a special big day for me.

We went to church this morning and our pastor delivered a good message about how the enemy will take over your mind if you allow him to so don’t!

Back to earth Day! It’s been gloomy here and now the sun has decided to shine and yay! We’ve had a late lunch and I wanted to write a short blog on this earth Day. I have ask if our utility company gives away trees to be planted and they don’t unfortunately, but the lady did tell me to check with the forestry, and I may because we do have room to plant some more trees.

Trees are always good for our breathing and oxygen.

I would also like to plant some fruit trees here just to see if they would grow and for the fruit to of course. I have read about dwarf trees also and this would definitely be the way to go until I was able to see if they would grow or not since we have fierce winters here. Here are some photos I found of some dwarf fruit trees.

The first dwarf tree which is a lemon tree it did say this was 3 years after delivery. I would love to have a lemon tree like this to walk out to and pull off fresh lemons as I need them and their uses in several different ways to clean and sanitize to in our homes as housewives I think we use them quite frequently. Nice thought and I think so to!

Here is a book I found on nature that I have put on my Kindle to learn some new things about nature to.

It sounds very interesting and it has all types of different subjects for what different things mean as to a world filled with clues. How the root of a tree indicates the sun’s direction, the big dipper tells the time, a passing butterfly hints at the weather, a sand dune reveals a prevailing wind, and the scent of cinnamon suggests altitude. This book is to help the reader understand nature as he does with 850 tips for forecasting, tracking, and more writes Tristan Gooey…

Happy Earth Day again and enjoy your Sunday and have a great week!

Evening church service and tomorrow is Monday again. Let’s see what we can get into and blog about this week…
