NEWS – Turning a Corner

NEWS!  In this case is stands for North, East, West, South.  Direction!  It’s something I’m struggling with lately in regards to my blog. I’m in a rut and I feel a bit lost on which direction I should take my blog.  I want it to be in a place that makes me happy, because ultimately I need to be happyContinue reading “NEWS – Turning a Corner”

A Moment of “Oh No” Turned Around

I decided to start taking horseback riding lessons.  Last Saturday the girls had a make up lesson so I was able to get back into the saddle after 9 months of not riding.  I had forgotten some of the saddling details, but felt more comfortable in the saddle than I had previously. Monday was a regular lessonContinue reading “A Moment of “Oh No” Turned Around”

RVing and Living the Homestead Dream

While our upcoming RV adventure is exciting, there is still a big part of me that can’t let go of living our homesteading dream. What if we were to tow a chicken coop with some chickens for fresh eggs every morning?  Of course it’s doubtful chickens would lay eggs in a coop traveling down theContinue reading “RVing and Living the Homestead Dream”

Every New Beginning

I have a home to take care of.  A home that includes 4 kids, 1 husband and 3 dogs.  I homeschool, which means part of the day is spent on school work and planning homeschool related activities.  I also spend time searching real estate listings for a home in the country.  Something that is the rightContinue reading “Every New Beginning”

Mom, Can I Have a Baby Chick?

This was the question Naomi asked me recently. We’ve had discussion about the animals that will one day be on our little farm and hae made it clear that a coop will be built (if there isn’t already one in place) and baby chicks will be the first farmyard animals to grace our homestead. We haveContinue reading “Mom, Can I Have a Baby Chick?”

Our Christmas Gifts to Us

Recently, hubby came home from work and wanted to talk to me about our homesteading dream.  As he began spilling out all of his thoughts I sat there thinking, “He’s right.”  Yes hubby, I said it publicly – You are right!  🙂 We’ve been waiting for the perfect moment. We’ve been waiting for that perfectContinue reading “Our Christmas Gifts to Us”

Should Have Known

When I was a little girl, the church we attended had a toy farm set.  I loved playing with those toys.  I would set up the fences, carefully place all the farm animals where they belonged and pretended to be the farmer. Guess I should have known that one day I would want my ownContinue reading “Should Have Known”

Yes, We Still Long for It

A homestead that is. Land in the country.   A house, smaller than the house we currently inhabit. Animals.  Farm animals that serve many purposes for our family. A view.  I want land with a view.  Not a view of flat lands and prairies where I can see for miles and miles, but hills.  Mountains.  ObstructedContinue reading “Yes, We Still Long for It”
