Getting Record Book Done & We Smell A Skunk!

4H record books were due and since we like to procrastinate as long as possible, we had to spend a good portion of the day getting Miley’s done. Then of course, a skunk comes around at the time we need to go out to do evening chores… good thing the kids were willing to go out with me!

Took Time To Catch a Few Pokemon

Started out the day with the usual chores and work around the homestead. Got the kefir grain packaged up to send out to the winners of our giveaway. After our stop at the post office we took a little time to catch a few Pokemon since they’re pretty scarce where we live.

Venturing Out Of Our Comfort Zone

It was another busy day on the homestead. Between a turkey getting injured, to way too spicy enchiladas for supper, to breaking out of the ole’ comfort zone in the tomato patch, there’s never a dull moment around here.

We Had A Turd Floater… Quite Literally

It was one of those days… tons of rain, in fact we got a turd floater, quite literally. Lightening fried our internet modem so we had to get that replaced.. But on a brighter note, I got lots of canning done, got my fall cucumbers in, plus we made time for a little fun.

Pulling Cucumbers and Skipping Rocks

Just another day on the homestead… all the usual chores, got cucumber plants pulled and the bed ready for replanting. Summer time is passing quickly so we made sure to get in some swimming and enjoy the evening with a walk to the creek.

Moved Turkeys To the Coop

It was long over due, we finally cleaned out the coop and moved the turkeys out of the house. I think they’re happy to finally have more room to run around.
It was actually a fun day of work. Work doesn’t really seem like work when you have a little helper that provides good conversation. 😉
