Animals, Birds, and Bugs

Assalam alykom:

Here is our small flock of "Organic" sheep. There are three young sheep and one baby who was an orphan. The kids were bottle feeding him at first, but now he can eat all by himself.

Some creatures I do not like. Take these creepy spiders.

My son brought this one in to show me. Wow, it is so beautiful, but I had the shivers at the thought of holding it. It is a garden spider and good to keep on the outside of the house.

These are little barn swallow babies that I found in the barn. They are sooooo adorable!

This is our new kitten. Her name is Sweety or Sicarah in Arabic. She is so good with the kids and they just adore her.

Life along the Countryside

Assalm alykom:

Welcome to my new blog. We just purchased a very old farm house out in the countryside in Nebraska. The house is on a little over six acres and has a few barns. For so long I have wanted a property like this. I have been longing for a more organic life. I really want to grow my own vegetables, raise my own chickens for eggs, have a small heard of sheep for meat and enough room for my kids to run and play. Well, Allah has richly blessed my family and I with a homestead to fulfill these dreams. Al-Hamdolilah!
