And you could hear the crickets chirping…..
Personally, I enjoy the sound of the cricket and find them to be very peaceful.
It’s good to take time to enjoy them, right?!
That being said…here’s a quick catch-up and a promise for more elaborate posts on a lot of these things in the coming days…
Chicken Coop is getting an addition already…(we neglected to think about rainy days and shade at the start…and we may want to add a hen or two, you know)
Madeline’s client list for her egg deliveries keeps growing!
Started our adventures in beekeeping
Taking a stab at growing mushrooms this year…shitake’s and wine caps
I took a wonderful series of HomeGrown Lifestyle Classes through the ISU Extension.
Been enjoying these two little vibrant bursts of sunshine every single day!
Madeline built Berkley her first ‘workbench’
I let the ‘baba’ go on way too long after breastfeeding….but oh how she loved it.
We’ve been building a lot of interesting things.
Nature is a natural hangout.
yep, we are still lousy with the ‘selfies”
Our flock is getting double the love — worm digging has been quite the sport.
Uncle Rory went to Paris!
We went to the House on the Rock!
I’ve weaved a lot of things over the years…leather coats, tubing, paper, mini-blinds…and now, finally, a proper basket!
We’ve been working on our learning / resource center
There has been an explosion in the population of tadpoles and they’ve been a hoot to watch grow.
Our garden is filled with an assortment of heirlooms and we are slowly starting to enjoy some of them. Oh look…the basket I made!
Madeline has gotten very competitive with her gardening efforts…she seems to think all of her produce thus far is larger than mine.
We had a pretty rad egg dying contest using crayons and natural dyes…Dee’s Egg Won…crack and all.
And I must now end at the pictures with snow in them because that is really starting to date things….
Cheers my friends to precious time and how quickly it goes by! Love and hugs to all of you who stop by. Consistency is a beautiful thing, but to keep things interesting….so is a little unpredictability from time to time. What have you been up to?
