Sunshine, blue skies, happy animals, plants, shovels, dirt, smiles, laughter, too many lettuce plants… ya know, all the stuff that brings homestead happiness….
It’s a rainy day on the homestead! It’s one of those days that once we get our chores done, there’s nothing else better to do than take a nap, make hamburger soup and play games.
Merry Christmas from all of us to all of you!
Miley loves shopping for the pets, so we had a special Christmas just for them….
I had an appointment and afterward did some shopping, so I was gone for most of the afternoon. When I got home, the kids surprised me…
We never sift our flour, but today we tried it and the cookies turned out much better. So we want to know, do you soft flour?
The cucumbers and tomato I planted in pots a while back aren’t doing the greatest. In fact, I was thinking about throwing them out until they started blooming.
The time has come and it’s never easy.
Today we’re making Christmas cookies! Dylan has always made the snicker doodles every year, but now he’s decided that it’s time to pass off that tradition to Miley. In this video he teaches her the fine art of snicker doodle making….
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.
Around here, most days start out with the usual morning chores and end with the usual evening chores. What goes on between those times varies greatly from day to day. Here’s a little glimpse into what one day here was like.
The weather has been like a rollercoaster lately. Just week before last we had beautiful weather and even ventured out for a walk, then last week it got really cold and we had a dreary day or two, then this week its back to being even more beautiful than it was a couple weeks ago. I guess that’s just Kansas weather for ya.
Every day is a little different for us on our homestead. Some days are pretty easy going, not much going on and others are busy, busy, busy. During the winter we usually have a lot more down time than any other time of the year.
