Friday Follow-Up

This week:

-- We had a dusting of snow after Christmas, and then winter hit in force: cold, cold weather that looks like it will last for awhile. I built a "new" hay feeder for the goats using materials we had on hand, but I'm not happy with the design and will rebuild it when the weather is warm enough.

-- Every year on New Year's Day I write down an inventory of our animals, fruit trees and so on. This year I added the number of hay bales on hand as well. We're still in good shape hay-wise this year.

-- This week's posts were Flogging Roosters and Seven Most Popular Posts of 2014. Was your favorite post on the list?

-- I'm updating my homestead goals, both short-term and long-term. So many projects are on my to-do list that it makes me dizzy. But how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time, and that's how we accomplish projects too: one step at a time. I just wish I could stop adding new projects to the end of the list!


My hope is to inspire you, and to encourage your homesteading plans and your dreams of a simple, self-reliant, God-dependent life. You can follow me at:

  1. I think if we didn't have a long project list, we would get bored, Kathi. Happy New Year!

    That made me laugh, Fern. You're probably right. One of the things I love about my life right now is that it's never boring.

  3. I guess you will never slow down with your continual list, but what would you do if you didn't have all of those things to do? I would do more quilting.

    Quilting sounds like a wonderful idea, Terry! I haven't done that in a really long time. Thanks!
