Lots To Do But There’s Always Time For a Walk With the Goat

It’s the time of the year when the work outside dies down but there’s still plenty of work to be done in the house to get it in shape for the upcoming holidays. We made a day of it cleaning house and shampooing carpets. Of course all work and no play makes for a dull, boring day so we made time for a walk with the goat.

A Celebration of Five Years on the Homestead!

We’re celebrating 5 years of being here! The weather was so nice that we spent most of the day outside. The kids were installing speakers in Brooke’s car, Michael and I were changing up the fence by the barn, and Miley was trying to get her airplane to fly. We ended our day with a bowl of chili, Halloween cupcakes and fun conversation.

Oh No! Our Turkey Got Injured!

One of our turkeys got injured so we treated him. Giving a turkey a pill is a little more difficult than it seems. It was election day so we went to town, had lunch together and voted. Discovered the beans revived themselves and produced a whole new crop… looks like there will be one more round of canning to do before the growing season is over.
