PS: For an inexpensive and very reliable Dutch oven check out Lodge, which is what I use (shown above), and I'm so in love with it I just might take it to bed to keep us warm.

You'll be happy you did too because Jessie, the creater of the June Cleaver project, has so many fun things going on at her blog.
Jessie says she started the June Cleaver project because "I felt like my life just consisted of me running around from one thing to the next with no benefit to anyone—not to my family or to myself. I wanted to get off the crazy ride I felt like I was on and live a more simple and happy life. I thought about prior generations and what history tells us were “easier” and “simpler” times. I kept coming back to the 1950’s and envisioning June Cleaver from television’s Leave It To Beaver. So, here I am! I am on a mission to do the following: try and live a more value-driven life as a more “hands-on” mom; have more organization in my home and life; lead a more simple life; get back to basics in many ways; be a happy homemaker; and be a better mom, wife and person. (and all with a sense of humor, too!!!)"
Now who can't relate to that? Check out A Year in the Life of June Cleaver and get your coupon code for 15% off your next Farmhouse Wares order.

We promptly made a shelter from an old dog cage. When we first put her in I could tell she was devastated as she looked over at the others with absolute panic. She wanted to be with them even though they were abusing her. Sadly, it’s what she knows. It’s what she’s comfortable with. We put a tarp around her cage, so she couldn’t see them, and she finally settled down. Quickly, she grasped how good life was for her in her new home, mainly because she had endless, uninterrupted access to the food and water. A few days passed, but she never laid an egg.
Then the rains came and we had to scurry to fix her shelter. Standing out in the cold rain, trying to make a proper home for this sick bird, I couldn’t help but ask myself if we were making too much of this. The farmers around here would just put her down; after all, she wasn’t even producing eggs anymore. But my husband and I have not really taken to this rough and tumble approach.
Though I had my doubts, and the endless rain put more stress on the situation, I am very proud to report that she laid her first egg two days ago and another yesterday. Her comb looks pinker too. Now we’re on to the next challenge: having her hold her own when we put her back in the hen house. This should be interesting. I hope those mean girls prove me wrong and show a little compassion. Am I asking too much from animals with brains the size of a peanut?
