As 2016 draws to a close and we look forward to a new year ahead, let's look back at all that happened this year. Whether it's a project finished or a lesson learned, reflecting on the past year always shows me God's goodness and mercy.
very egg-cited! I blew out that first egg and added it to the bowl of two previously-blown first eggs, one from our very first flock in Michigan years ago, and another from our childrens' americauna hens. -- I helped hubby as he finished building our almost-free metal shed. I'm a good ladder-holder. -- Also in January one of the buff orpington pullets was injured in a freak accident.
October marked the beginning of my regular contributions to the Self-Reliant School website. I hope you'll stop over occasionally and read my articles as well as the many posts from others that you'll find there.
Our very first great-grandchild made his way safely into the world in November.
As always, the years bring both blessings and burdens. We've continued dealing with hubby's health concerns, but I am thankful he's still here. We said goodbye to a loved cat and dog, but are thankful that we shared their lives for as long as we did. We are blessed by the addition of a new baby in the family.
I'm thankful for another year at Oak Hill, and I'm thankful for all of you who are following along on this crazy homesteading journey. Thank you for your comments, your encouragement, and your prayers. Here's to many more adventures ahead!
