We invited Grandma and Larry Pop over for a special Valentine's dinner cooked by Chef Josiah. He made teriyaki kabobs. They were spectacular!
In the end, I got my wish and "Blondie" was spared. I wanted him because I've always liked "tall, cool blondes" and he reminds me of my husband ;) Within a week, Michael added 5 more laying pullets to the flock. So now we have one rooster, two old hens and 5 young pullets. We have seen one egg in the two weeks we've had them. Waiting, waiting....
It is a lot of work to rebuild this thing, but thankfully Michael has the know-how and it is definitely cheaper than getting a new camper!
Don't let that angelic smile fool you, she is into everything!
Rina decided she wanted to improve her skin with an avocado mask at lunch.
So blessed to have doubled the size of our swing set when some friends of ours friend gave us theirs since their kids have out-grown it. We have a lot of kids visit and now it feels like we have our own park on the homestead.We plan on staining it all one color when the weather gets nicer so it really will look like it all belongs together. This will get many more years of use on Mission Rd Homestead.
As I write this, we are coming up on Easter. As usual, I'm a month behind, but I keep plugging along. Life is so busy with a baby! She is now walking and 10 1/2 months old. Spring is a busy time on the homestead anyway. Glad she is walking so she can come outside with us more. What a joy and delight she is to us all!
As we move into Resurrection Weekend, let us all take time to ponder just what the Lord has done for us. "For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life" John 3:16 (HCSB). Let those words of life truly sink in. May we never take them for granted!
