A little goatie post…in the middle of a tough day.

My family is spending unexpected time in the intensive care unit of the Abbott-Northwestern Heart Hospital in Minneapolis this week with my Dad. What do you do at times like this? You walk through the deep waters knowing the One True God has promised that they won’t overwhelm you and that He will walk every step […]

A year of gradual progress on the Home Front….

NOTE: I started this post several weeks ago….but like so many things on a farm (even a little pretend farm) interruptions HAPPEN! So, better late than never? Enjoy the pics of warmer days:) We’ve been on the homestead for a year now as of September 29th. Natural to look back and see what has been […]

New career in the plumbing business…

Our kitchen sink drain has been leaking…..there are so many outdoor things that need to be done before winter that I really didn’t want to bug Larry to work on this. So I just let it leak into the garbage cans and emptied the water with the garbage. But I was a deer widow last […]

The dangers of a Library Basement Sale……

An hour and a large box later….. Next job……sort into “keepers and sellers.”… Photograph, research, catalog and post all the “sellers” to my etsy […]

Pickles and other chemistry experiments…

The first year garden crop is starting to produce. Got the ground tilled a bit late due to life’s challenges and unforeseen detours. But it still did surprisingly well. Lettuce and spinach etc was last to go in and now looks like this: I KNOW, did that backwards like many things this year. Oh well! […]

Green tomato rescue….

Another lesson learned the hard way. Who knew chickens loved tomatoes? The hens spent weeks strolling the garden, only eating the bugs. It was great. Natural bug control! Then…..one day……I found this: Couldn’t see deer tracks, so blamed the bunny rabbits.  I grieved a bit. Last time I planted a salsa garden in the community […]

The priceless love of a good dog…

The Priceless Love of a Good Dog… At first her name was Daisy. She spent most of her time in a too-small dog crate. It wasn’t her fault that she may have grown bigger and stronger than her family could handle in their apartment. So she found herself without a family….on display… hopeful…lonely…. confused. Until […]
