“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

It’s been… a bizarre week. Our mild, yet pleasant, summer gave us an early dose of winter when we were blanketed with an inch or two of snow on Thursday night. I ended up having to intervene for my poor tomato plants and covered some of them with quilts while harvesting the others early. (I may or may not have been grumbling a bit while I harvested…) We are supposed to get back up into the 80s this week, but that’s Wyoming for ya!

To top it all off, I nearly accidentally grabbed a rattlesnake while harvesting the ‘maters on that chilly afternoon. It was curled up trying to keep warm, and I didn’t see it until it was way too close for comfort. Thankfully it was too cold to pose much of a threat!

And, don’t forget this is the LAST DAY to grab your copy of the Ultimate Healthy Living bundle. If you haven’t grabbed yours yet, promise me that you’ll at least take a look to see if it’d be a fit for you? It’s such a spectacular deal that only comes around once a year, I’d hate for anyone to miss out if they want it!

Onto the Barn Hop!

“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

I’m a little shocked at how quickly summer turned into fall this year… I have rather mixed feelings on the topic too. Don’t get me wrong, I am crazily excited for chai tea and sweaters and cozy days inside, but I also know our Wyoming winters are very, very long, so I don’t want to wish away the carefree, barefoot summer activities too quickly!

And hey– I have a spiffy little opportunity for you today. As many of you know, I’m a big fan of eBook bundles–and I just-so-happen to know there is a pretty spectacular one in the works. And, I also know of a way for you to get it for FREE. Crazy, huh? All you have to do is go here and input your email address. You’ll then get information on the next step sent to your inbox (no purchase required). Basically it just boils down to encouraging 10 other friends to do the same, then you get the bundle for free. Pretty nifty, huh? (And it’s 100% spam-free. Promise.)

I heard a strange chirping noise in the barnyard last week, and was thrilled to find a little yellow chick contentedly hanging out with his mama in the sun. It’s a treat to watch how she cares for that baby–all the old sayings about “protective mother hens” certainly have it right!

Finding the little yellow fluffball was especially comforting after losing four of our other hens to a predator earlier this week (I suspect it was a fox…). The circle of life on a homestead can be both brutal and beautiful at times…

  “Cultivating the Homestead Community”

Ok… fine. I admit it: “Taking is easy” isn’t my strongest trait… And unfortunately, it’s not my husband’s either, so we make quite the pair! Last week, we decided to take a rare “day-off” mid-week to head to town to run some errands, but somehow we found ourselves mysteriously building a fire ring in the front yard after we got home a few hours later. I have a batch of homemade marshmallows made up (recipe coming to the blog next week!), so let the campfires begin!
