Candy popcorn recipe

This is amazing how much little kids love to pop popcorn! They don't want to stop!

As you can see my Fairy even tries to make it by herself. Yep. This is what kids do. At least it is not sticky or stinky. LOL

I made this with girlfriends few months ago. Very yummy!

Pop your popcorn . Melt some candy coating. Mix with popcorn and add candy of choice. Great also to give away at Halloween and Christmas with the right colored candy.

On another note...My heart goes to all the people suffering in this world. There is so much pain, disasters and fights going on right now. Isn't crazy?

Love you guys

Getting ready for Fall and Halloween

I planted pumpkins in my front flower bed with the purple petunias. 
I think it is one of my tradition. I plant pumpkin seed with the kids and we have cute pumpkins for Halloween.
Growing up in an apartment  in Paris. I really appreciate and enjoy planting pumpkins. 

This is my ways of getting ready for Halloween...3 months ahead.
I love to also make French soup with the Pumpkin. Just replace the squash by pumpkin.

Chicken coop design and ideas on the cheap

we used to live in the woods...I loved it so much.
I dreamed about the woods last night and the fall colors...
I was very happy when i got some money to build a coop for my birthday.
I bought a $500 shed (7 by 7) at an home improvement store. We had a friend build it for us.

He extended the roof for an outside run...

Zacky there...

You have to dig all around and bury the chicken wire for predators...
This is a big coop...

This picture is the first time they poke their head outside. I raised them in my garage and they were so ready to be outside!!

All finished...

I want some day again have chickens...It was a lot of fun. Hope you enjoyed this and that it inspires you to get your own coop.
