“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

What a gorgeous weekend!

We’ve been keeping our poor piggies locked up in the barn for the last several weeks, due to the continual snowstorms and cold temps. But thanks to the gorgeous weather we had over the weekend we finally turned them loose in the garden, and they were ecstatic!

I don’t think I’ve ever seen two happier animals. Rooting, grunting, rolling–I love knowing that they are getting to live as a pig should. ;)

This hop is hosted by The Prairie Homestead, New Life on a HomesteadWeed Em and Reap, and The Elliott Homestead.

“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

Yep… We went from 70 degrees one day, to a snowstorm the next… That’s spring in Wyoming for ya!

But it’s all good–now I just have a little more time to focus on the indoor stuff before I totally neglect my house-chores while I play in the garden all summer. ;)

And–a really quick reminder of a couple really sweet deals that are almost over:

Until tomorrow (April 15th), if you sign up for a wholesale essential oil account, you’ll get free oils AND a 30-minute phone consult with yours truly! I’ve already been talking with some of you on the phone, and it’s been a blast. (Not to mention the oil freebies you get!)

AND, you know that super-awesome-amazing-cookbook I’ve been telling you about, (the one that showed me how to make those mouth-watering braised short ribs I posted last week)? Well, tomorrow is the last day to preorder it for a sweet price on Amazon–so don’t miss out! (affiliate link)

 It’s coming… I can feel it! 

I can’t deny the feeling that spring is in the air. The Prairie Kids and I have been spending more and more time outside cleaning up the yard after a the long winter, and making plans for flower beds and the gardens. And yes, I fully expect at least one more hefty snow storm to hit Wyoming, but that’s OK. That just means greener grass to come. :)

And I have an exciting announcement for you– this Friday, April 11th, at 2 pm MST (4 pm EST), I will be hosting a free webinar with Dana Dow of Bloom Doula. She is a doula by trade, and fellow essential oil enthusiast who will be offering her best tips for using essential oils during pregnancy and labor. The spots are filling up fast, so don’t miss it!

“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

 Something miraculous happened this week…

I went into the feed store and came out with only TWO baby birds. Not 15… Not 35… Just two.

That’s right–I went in, bought two turkeys (destined for the Thanksgiving table, come November), and that’s it.

It was a massive exercise in self-control, and they said it couldn’t be done, but I did it.

Now, that’s not to say that I won’t be driving back to town to potentially bring home more chicks… But let’s just take one day at a time, m’kay? ;)
