Well it seems Spring is finally here, or it is for the moment. Either way the windows are open and outdoor work has begun. In the last two days we have built a duck coop and a rabbit tractor, we have built a larger fenced area for the children to run and play and we have started planning where we are going to plant all these lovely plants that currently occupy my dinning area, as well as finding a place to hang our clothes line. I cannot wait to smell that outdoor fragrance that line hung clothing gets!
It has been a rough go so far with the disappointments that are renting but with our heads held high, we ignore the frustrations and go about our goals. My cookbook is coming along and I am on track for my goal to be self published by July! Also I am in the middle of trying to make a few aprons for myself and the girls as we needed some new ones! Began putting together a plan to save enough for a down deposit by Fall, which puts a smile on my face :) And well I am baking on the homestead as usual, only difference is it comes before and after outdoor chores now!
Heading off to the kitchen now to prepare a meal for my hungry bunch, will be sure to update you soon of our journey to be self sufficient!
