That’s kind of what this post feels like. While it has been almost a week since I have posted, there hasn’t been one big thing to post about. We did travel to Wisconsin last weekend to celebrate Christmas with my extended family there. It is always too short a time, but it is so good to see everyone. Normally we visit Wisconsin twice a year, once in the summer, and once before Christmas. This past summer with our baby being born and moving into the new house it was just too busy a time to travel so unfortunately we didn’t make it. However, that made this trip all the more special. Seeing how much all of the kids have grown and matured over a full year was really fun. I truly value time with family, and try to visit as often as possible and learn what is going on in everyone’s lives. I know I fall short of these goals, but I try.
My next big goal in the house, the installation of the wood stove, hasn’t progressed any further. I need to get a fire lit under me, pun intended, and get moving. I am hoping that with Homestead Mom having some time off and my dad being around a little I might be able to make some headway in getting that moving.
I hope to do a review on The Backyard Homestead Book of Building Projects book. It is a book with 76 projects for many areas around the home. I am looking forward to trying many of them soon. I also recently saw Fed Up, a movie that talks about the cause of the obesity epidemic in our country. I thought it was really good.
Other than that it is homesteading as usual. Keeping the animals comfortable, fed, and watered and trying to plan projects for the winter and next spring. Hopefully something fun soon. Until then…
