Life on the Farm

Life on the Farm

Hello friends! I wanted to stop in and let you know about all the happenings here on the homestead. Grab a cup of coffee and let’s chat! First and most important, most oh-my-goodness-no-way-yes-way-whaaaaat is… ::drum roll, please:: WE ARE GETTING A COW! A real live […]

Down the Back, September Edition

Down the Back, September Edition

 Warning, this is a picture-heavy post. Sometimes I like to just walk around our land and snap some random pictures. It’s neat to be able to look back and see the evolution of it all, as everything changes to fit our needs and situation.   […]
