I’m back…

A lot has happened since I posted last.  My husband and I took a driving trip to California for my cousin’s wedding.  We bought a tractor we have yet to acquire because the John Deere in our town is less than customer oriented.  We have had a baby lamb escape our less than mediocre fencing and get hit and killed by my cousin in his giant pickup.  We have decided to possibly adopt one or two kittens from our local humane society to keep our one and only cat, Cooter, company.  We have 113 baby chicks (Cornish Rocks).  Another hen drowned in the stock tank leaving us with 11 banties.  This weekend we hope to clean our lots (with our invisable tractor), build our new lots, and release our anxious rams out with our ewes.  A few will be held back to grow a bit before being bred.

Sorry I have been away so long.  I am going part-time at work, so my time here will be limited.  I will try to pop in from time-to-time.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
