Save The Little Homestead!
Would you think I'm incredibly wishy washy and indecisive if I told you I'm rethinking my plan to delete The Little Homestead on the Hill? It's ok if you do...I understand. In fact, I'm thinking that about myself right now too. Every time I think about deleting this blog completely, I feel like I'm losing something dear to me. I haven't been posting on here regularly and I have my hands pretty full blogging over at my new site The Self Sufficient HomeAcre. But it just seems wrong to get rid of my old friend here on The Little Homestead on the Hill.
So I started thinking that I'd like to keep posting more of my personal thoughts and homesteading updates here, while I post more how to kinda info on my new blog. I hope that you will visit me at both sites. You will find quite a bit of photography shared on The S.S. HomeAcre. If you like the photo above, I have a post planned for Saturday over on the other blog, where I will share some other shots of ice crystals in the morning sunlight. I have to say, I was amazed at how well they came out and I'm really looking forward to sharing!
I'd also love to have my fellow bloggers come over and check out The HomeAcre Hop that I host every Thursday and Wildcrafting Wednesday that I co-host on Wednesdays, of course. :) Last week I had a special Winter on the HomeAcre Hop that was a ton of fun, with so many wonderful posts linked up. You'll find my favorite at the very tippy top of my side bar! Stop by and check to see who won. :)
So, for anyone interested, I have little homestead updates to share: Our cat Oscar disappeared on December 17th, I suspect the coyotes are to blame; I now have 61 chickens, but the older ones are destined for the stew pot; my son Joe is back to college classes this week (he is taking an acting class and a Planning for Success class, he also is working on math on the Khan Academy online); I had a little fender bender yesterday but everyone is ok and their insurance is covering everything; I'm buying raw milk and making my own butter and yogurt; we put a grass fed beef in the freezer and I think that sums up most of the exciting stuff.
Are you enjoying 2013? Have you set any homesteading goals for yourself this year? I shared my homesteading goals here, if you are interested. :) I hope this year treats you well!
