Our family's homesteading adventures in the mountains

Eggs

The past couple days have felt like Spring around here.  Spring on the farm is an exciting time.  Does kid so there is a fresh supply of milk.  Chickens start laying.  Two days ago we found a bunch of eggs in the nesting boxes.  The chicks we purchased in the fall are laying!   Here is a link to a fun post Drew put on his blog.  It is a funny video of our rooster.

Our dining room table

Our dining room is a bit odd shaped so when it came to looking for a dining table, nothing out there really fit what we were looking for.  We also needed one that was large.  So we decided to make our own.  It is square and fits 8 people easily – more if we squeeze a little.  Brian did the bulk of the work with some help from the boys.  I think it turned out great.

Fun projects for baby

When we lived in Houston Katy and I were part of a Threads of Love group.  We crocheted edging on fleece blankets and made matching hats. The blankets went to the NICU at a local hospital.   I decided it was a perfect thing to make for our new baby.  I even made matching booties.   The second blanket is flannel on one side and minky on the other.  I also made coordinating burp clothes.    The last project is  nursing cover.  They sell for $35-$50.  That price is out of my budget so I made one.  I spent $7 and 30 minutes.  I am hoping to get a few more things made in the next few weeks.
