Lots of things going on...

Hey ya'll,

   Well for starters,  my computer has bit the dust, so I am using the one at our local library. We have done more on our property, there will be pictures soon. We burned all of our brush, and we got our tax money back, so we will be paying a guy to get our stumps up, and get it ready for permits, and a septic tank. Right now, it looks like a bomb hit our little acre, and blew it to bits.
   I am getting 6 little baby chicks this week, from tractor supply!! I have never had chickens before, so it will be very interesting! I am very excited. I am so tired of buying eggs from the store, I feel dirty doing that for some reason. I am on my way to boycotting wal-mart!! We will be plowing 1/2 an acre in a few days for our garden, and I am going to learn  how to can our food, and make jelly this year. I already make our bread, and laundry detergent and fabric softener. I was very glad for the 2 warms days we had last week, I did 4 loads of clothes and hung them on the line!! It does not take much to make me happy!!

  I drove to tractor supply today, while it was snowing and listened to some bluegrass music, boy was it pouring! I did my best to enjoy it, cause it will probably be our last snow for the year. Well, I better go, lots to do!! I hope you all have a very blessed Easter!!



  1. Congratulations on the soon to be adventures in chicken raising and food canning. It can be alot of work but it's so worth it.

  2. chickens are fun, friendly and best of all give eggs. we are spoiled by farm fresh eggs.

About Me

My photo
I live in the mountains of Western North Carolina, in a little camper, with my husband and family. We are trying to become self sufficient and live off the land. I am sick of all the sad news on TV, the economy, and the evil world we live in, so we are trying to make things as simple as possible and get back to the basics. I think if everyone did that, and had faith in God the world might be a better place. Follow along, as we live life in our little tin can, and try to make it a home, while learning to homestead.
