Sit down and relax. @phishjam2001 knows how to take it all in while waiting for the evening Hatch. #matchthehatch #flyfishing #upperdelaware #sunset #enjoyoutdoors #itsnotaboutthefish #streamwalkernets #findcoldwater
We got a rooster! And he’s making himself at home in the (container) garden. The girls think he’s a little stiff but are happy to welcome him to the flock. This is the true meaning of #chickensanddirt , no?

How fun is the ceiling at @yummylicious_sgh ?!?! Flip thru to see it change colors and then a shot of the yummy pistachio ice cream in a homemade waffle cone. Happy Saturday friends!

The 14th annual Zane Grey Festival is tomorrow, Saturday July 14th from 10:00 - 4:00!!! The family oriented event truly has something for everyone. Children can participate in a scavenger hunt, get their face painted, learn about water safety or participate in a variety of crafts. Adults and children a like can take a horse-drawn wagon ride around Lackawaxen, watch a live birds of prey show or relax and listen to music while over looking the beautiful Delaware River. Many authors will be autographing their books, including Mort Malkin, Poet, who composed a poem to help Upper Delaware celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act. #upperdelaware #findyourpark #zanegrey #zanegreyfestival #lackawaxen
Crazy double today. Big smallmouth and walleye within a minute of each other. Both fish were released unharmed. #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #catchandrealease #smallmouthbass #walleye #river #fishing #fish #fishingphotography #catskills #upstateny #flyfishingguide #takeakidfishing #getoutside @beaverkillangler
I had such a great birthday, and feel like it’s still going, or maybe that’s just the ‘Summer of Kristin’ finally kicking into high gear. Either way, I blogged about my birthday. Link in profile should you care to read. Or look at more pics. And here’s a pic of Clare E. Clare for your viewing pleasure. I hope you’re having a wonderful day friends! . . . . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #nikon #nikond3100 #nikonphotography #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #countrylife #rurallife #farmher #chickenlibrarian #happyhomesteading #chickensanddirt #iamcountryside #backyardflock #backyardpoultry #backyardpoultrymag #summerdays #summerofkristin #chickensofinstagram #chickensofig

All that basil from yesterday’s pic? Turned it into basil ice cream which has to be the best thing ever! Today I’m processing about 8 pounds of cherries. While eating basil ice cream.

Hey friends! You all are amazing! Thank you for your sweet birthday wishes yesterday. I pretended I was at the beach. It was fun. I’ve blogged an update about the garden and all things homesteading. I’m surprised that the garden is actually thriving and starting to produce! It must be because the chickens are looking out for the garden. And the chipmunks. They like to assess the soil conditions and bury some treasures. Anyway, link in profile should you feel the need to see a bunch of gardening pics. . . . . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #nikon #nikond3100 #nikonphotography #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #countrylife #rurallife #farmher #chickenlibrarian #happyhomesteading #chickensanddirt #garden #gardening #gardensofinstagram #blogher #blogger #iamcountryside
|| Sunday afternoon locked on the Lackawaxen || #floatdropguide
Hey Instagram! Today is my birthday so today’s #chickenselfiesunday is a special one as is my #chickenselfiesundaybloopers ! Gertie McGhee is such a good sport until she spotted the zucchini! Join Sam over at @chickens.and.wine for #chickenselfiesunday and Cindy over at @8coolcats for the blooper portion of the day! . . Birthdays are funny. They’re a time for reflection and introspection. This time last year I was a hot mess. Full of anxiety and stress. Working a million hours a week and getting nowhere. Less than a month later I was fired. Which was the best thing that ever happened to me. I’ve learned a lot about myself this past year. I’m able to be a friend to the people who matter most. I’m working on being a better person and taking things a little more lightly. I’m still a hot mess at times but I’m a happier mess. I feel loved and love giving love back. I may not be exactly where I thought I’d be but we’re a work in progress, right? And I now know what I won’t allow in my life. . . . But hey! Birthdays are a time for celebration too! And today we’re celebrating by heading to the nearest city with a Red Lobster. I’m gonna pretend I’m at the beach eating lobster, crab, and/or shrimp. I hope you lovelies are having a very wonderful day! And in the true spirit of being more laid back, anyone care to venture which year i’ma celebrating today?!?! . . . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #countrylife #rurallife #farmher #chickenlibrarian #happyhomesteading #chickensanddirt #happybirthday #iamcountryside #backyardflock #backyardpoultry #backyardpoultrymag
Great weekend taking the raft on it’s maiden voyage on the West Branch with @captainzebo ! #upperdelaware #flyfishing #outcast #boats #sunnyday #sulphurhatch #sippers #pescamosca #browntrout #wildfish #only
While the views at the end of a long hike along the Upper Delaware River can be breathtaking, they can also be dangerous. Most viewpoints are very high up on cliffs so it is important to be cautious while approaching to prevent any accidental falls. #hiking #viewpoints #safetyfirst #tustenmountaintrail #upperdelaware #findyourpark #takeahike
Don't underestimate the power of rocks!!! Rocks can be dangerous, especially when they are wet. Watch your footing when hiking on rugged trails and walking alone the riverbank. #safetysaturday #upperdelaware #findyourpark #wearit
Good Morning Instagram! I have a busy day today of running errands. I am in desperate need of chicken stuff and cherries are on sale. I need to make all the cherry things. Do you have a favorite way of preserving cherries? And then I have a very busy week of making. I need to make 3 different kinds of soap, preserve the cherries, and I have about 3 different ice creams I want to make: cherry, basil, and honey lavender (not all together though). I also need to pick daisies before Monday so I can make daisy oil for soap making. I think that’s it. Oh! And go to the local pick-ur-own and pick whatever’s in season! And I almost forgot! I have a ton of strawberries in the freezer for processing. How fun are these beach houses? This was from our trip to Sag Harbor. Happy Saturday friends! I hope you all have a good weekend! . . . . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #nikon #nikond3100 #nikonphotography #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #countrylife #rurallife #farmher #chickenlibrarian #happyhomesteading #chickensanddirt #sagharbor #beachhouse #thehamptons #todolist #buoy #preppy #preppystyle
If you are near Skinners Falls this weekend, stop on over and check out the thousands of tadpoles near the rocks. In just about another week, they will begin to develop more and we will be able to identify exactly what kind of frog or toad it will be. What do you think? And don’t forget to be extra careful, the rocks can be slippery when they are wet. #upperdelaware #findyourpark #skinnersfalls #wildlife
Finally blogged about my trip to the Hamptons. This, and all my pics from the trip, were taken the last day in Sag Harbor because that’s the only day I left the pool!! It was a great trip. Link is in my profile should you care to read. Happy Friday y’all! . . . . . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #nikon #nikond3100 #nikonphotography #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #countrylife #rurallife #farmher #chickenlibrarian #happyhomesteading #chickensanddirt #thehamptons #sagharbor #boats #atlanticocean #summertime
Happy Independence Day! The Zane Grey Museum is open today and the rest of the week from 10:00-5:00. If you venture out on the river please remember to wear your life jacket!!! #upperdelaware #findyourpark #independanceday #zanegrey
Will it be knee high by the Fourth of July? Grow corn, grow! . . . #sullivancounty #sullivancounty #kneehigh #oldsayings #countrylife #catskills #catskillsny #upstateny #trr #upperdelaware
river tubing down the river to cool off (view from my @airbnb ) • #vacationtime #catskills #upperdelaware #july4 #getaway #simplepleasures
We’re gearing up for our Fourth of July celebration. We’ve made it to the other side of the heat wave, thankfully! The one advantage to the heat wave? Lots of free ranging for the girls, lots of pool time for me. I’ll take it. I’m making a huge potato salad for our cookout with lots of friendly folk tomorrow. I’ve been busy but also having lazy summer days too. It’s been nice. How are you? Do you have plans for tomorrow? In case I don’t make it over here tomorrow, have a lovely #fourthofjuly 🇺🇸 . . . . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #nikon #nikond3100 #nikonphotography #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #countrylife #rurallife #farmher #chickenlibrarian #happyhomesteading #chickensanddirt #flag #americanflag #redwhiteandblue
“Inside you're burnin' I can see clear through Your eyes tell more than you mean them to” Tiny sulphur season on the west full swing. #flyfishing #wildbrowntrout #upperdelaware #flyphishing #troutbum #orvis #dryfliestellnolies #dryfly #mayfly #gratefuldead
An adult eagle had dropped a shad into the nest, and you can see here that the young are having a bit of a food fight. There was plenty of fish for both young, and each got a share. The 3rd young is absent and presumably fledged not too far back. It was unseen, likely in a nearby tree. The other 2 will likely fledge this week. #upperdelaware #findyourpark #baldeagles #WSR50
Phone took a shit today, so I dug my old phone out of the closet. Pretty crazy to go through my old photos and messages. So much has changed, and aside from the lack of fishing I'm pretty happy with how this shithead has turned out so far #upperdelaware #forgothowtofish

My friend Cindy over at @8coolcats has a fun hashtag: #chickenselfiesundaybloopers , and she asked me to play along. Y’all, it’s HARD taking selfie with one hand while holding a wiggling chicken in the other. And then add in props 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ So I’m sharing a blooper from the first time I really tried to take a chicken selfie....and this was just a couple of weeks ago🤦🏻‍♀️ It doesn’t get more real than this! And Happy Canada Day to our friends in the north 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦 ! We hope you all are enjoying your Sunday. . . . . . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #countrylife #rurallife #farmher #chickenlibrarian #happyhomesteading #lifeonthehomestead #reallife #selfiesarehard
With today’s high near 97 and 52% humidity, a day on the river is the perfect spot to be. If you venture out today please limit your time outdoors and drink plenty of water and re-apply sunscreen often. And don’t forget if you decide to swim, please wear a life jacket. #upperdelaware #findyourpark #wearit #hydration #sunscreen #heatwave #safetysunday
River life is forever the best life. #optoutside
Sometimes you have to just get in the pool and splash. Stay cool this weekend! . . . #dogsofinstagram #poolparty #heatwave #summer #upperdelaware #waynecounty #staycool #splishsplash #trr
|| Tough bite on yesterday float trip but Ray and Adam got it done. || #floatdropguide
My dear friend Cindy (who has the patience of a saint since I’ve been a little MIA lately) over at @8coolcats tagged me to play along with Brittany @camoandfeathers for #farmherfriday . Sometimes farming, or the homestead in my case, looks a lot like this...poolside with a pizza float! I’m gearing up for the heatwave by making sure the girls stay as cool as possible. As for me, you’ll find me by the pool.

Hey IG friends! This is happening in August. If you’re local(ish) come join us. There are some cool cats, good beer, good food, and you’ll be cleaning up the river! Last year over 70 tires were pulled out of the river!! Let’s top that this year. Whadya say? . . . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #countrylife #rurallife #farmher #chickenlibrarian #happyhomesteading #rivercleanup #pigfarmink #delawareriverclub
