Homestead Update

With my Grandpa here, and his hands refusing idleness, we managed to get the hoop coop finished! It was really neat watching the guys outside working on everything together, teaching my son as they went. And the Chickies love their new, more spacious home. I've been having a BLAST taking advantage of our off week … Continue reading Homestead Update

Legacy

My grandpa made a trip down to our neck of the woods to bring me my grandma's sewing machines and paraphernalia. I tell you what, initially, it was almost overwhelming, because of the sheer volume of things to explore, but overwhelming in a good way. We had a wonderful visit. Grandpa got the basement lights … Continue reading Legacy

Fall/ Winter Projects 2020

This has got to be my favorite time of year because it has all the excitement and novelty of getting out patterns and getting yarn and fabric for all my sewing and fiber crafting projects. My husband teases me for having multiple projects going all at once. And I've learned to just take that in … Continue reading Fall/ Winter Projects 2020

Homestead Update

I'm one of those ADD homesteaders... Not only can I not seem to focus on one task at a time (spaghetti brain) but I also constantly ADD to my already lengthly list of to dos...see what I did there? So I've been asking God to order my days. Following the moon cycles actually helps this … Continue reading Homestead Update

Homestead Updates

It's finally starting to slow down around here, which is great! Because it'll pick up in full force for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Baby #4, New Years, chick brooding, garden planning, and seed starting soon enough! We've really been enjoying the fireplace on chilly evenings. I can't imagine ever getting tired of it. Friday Husband of mine … Continue reading Homestead Updates

Homestead Update

Well, I persuaded my husband to light the first fire of the year on Friday evening. It was wonderful. Prior to that I had my minis help me make Swedish meatballs for dinner. Those are the moments I treasure- peacefully functioning and just living life together. I need more of those moments. Sunday I tried … Continue reading Homestead Update

Restlessness and my Remedy

Sometimes I struggle with feeling restless and bored with the mundane day-to-day operations on the ol' homestead. I think if we're honest, most people do feel that way about life at some point. But I tend to handle it in a systematic fashion that has helped me cope with my chronic ADHD need to be … Continue reading Restlessness and my Remedy

Please Excuse my Sporadic Posts…

...I wonder how many posts I've written that begin with, "Oh my goodness, it's chaos around here..." I'll look into it. That's research I don't have time for at the moment. Update with the mold issue: I haven't been back down to the basement since I realized just how allergic I am to mold. The … Continue reading Please Excuse my Sporadic Posts…

No Harm in Farmin’: Shout Out!

I'm a dreamer. A dangerous pass time, I know. But, I started thinking... The other day, my 3 year old said, "What are you doing thinking!?" I think he meant what do you think you're doing, but the poignancy of his statement made me giggle... ...I started thinking, hey, wouldn't it be cool if I … Continue reading No Harm in Farmin’: Shout Out!

Happy Holidays and other Updates

My family and I had a spectacular Christmas holiday with my husband's parents and grandmother. I have to say, it was so nice to not have to pack up the whole crew and travel. Once Flynn is with us and (God willing) the dairy goats, I don't think picking up and heading out of state … Continue reading Happy Holidays and other Updates
