Happy Easter!

We had a great Easter weekend, and I hope all of my friends and family did too.

Friday we had our annual Egg Hunt. 650. Eggs. 15 Kids. Talk about fun. Good food. And plenty of laughs.

Saturday was market as normal for us. Then we had a birthday party. Anna cut her hair off.

Sunday Jed didn't feel good. Poor guy. He had been up half the night. Still he was a trooper and got up and went to church to help make breakfast. I got the kids ready and headed in myself. I stayed for the second service. We got to hear Jeffery Miller speak. He is a Messianic Jew and a wonderful speaker. We were blessed to have him. After that, we went to Jed's parents for lunch and an egg hunt.

Today is Monday so everything is going back to normal. Yipee.

Spring Clean Up Is Here!

It's clean up time around the farm! A sign that spring is here. The snow is gone and has uncovered all the winter uglies. Some things lost, some things stashed just outside the door because the snow was covering everything, others left out from last fall.

The front yard is cleaned, The chicken fencing is repaired. The apple crates are mostly put away. Loads of garbage picked up. Day one is complete.

Day two will be more pick up, along with a bonfire, just to get everything taken care of. I cannot wait. This year I am planning on adding a flower bed, actually moving one, and creating another.

We also need to get the plastic on the greenhouse and get that finished off. We are really starting on building our homestead to become self sufficient. I am glad that my husband shares that goal with me. Maybe not to the same extent, but in similar ways.
