Homestead Happenings 2/5/23

Illness Strikes Again! Morgan was so kind to give me her illness over Christmas and now a month later I've succumbed again. Truth be told, I don't take great care of myself, as I try to take care of everyone else first. I'm trying to be better about it, but..... Saturday Shane's friend Alina took a few of us out hawking. Most things have been pretty quiet around here otherwise. Just trying to rest and get some laundry and dishes done as I go. The lambs are doing great, the adult sheep are doing great, the chickens are starting to amp up laying, and I'm about to get going on garden plans! Enjoy! Amy

Happy Imbolc! This is the Celtic celebration that spring is on it's way while winter is phasing out. Shane and I made pancakes and eggs for breakfast, I'll be cleaning up the kitchen and making a Blackberry Cobbler later this morning/afternoon, and for dinner I'm making a Shepherd's pie from a recipe found in the Outlander cookbook using ground lamb Shane's brother gave to him. It's good to see if we like it before filling our freezer full of it I guess haha. We also had a great woods walk last week. Enjoy! Amy

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving or at the least a great few days off! FYI - There's only 5 calendars left for sale! It's been a fairly quiet week (with it being a holiday weekend) but Dorothy the Chicken Coop had some changes. We did make it down to the creek and for a quick trip to Raven's Rest as well. Enjoy! Amy
