Winter on the farm is a time to prepare for Spring and Summer. These last couple of weeks I have lined out goals and tasks. Ordering of animals and seeds need planning now. Discussing what to expand and what to change is happening. Our goals entered the realm of wanting to make money, and not wanting to go into debt while doing it. There are exciting new things coming. We give our plans to God and ask His direction and provision.
Schooling the children is going great. We have all adjusted to the new system of workboxes. We all LOVE them too. I really can’t believe how well they work. It’s like a tiny piece of the plan that was missing before. Everything is much smoother.
Our mama goats are pregnant too. I am so excited to see the new kids in April. This is Poke A Dot, looking like a blob. Last year she was three times bigger than Agnes and had less kids. She also seemed the most miserable of the two. Animals are just as different as people are in regards to pregnancy. It’s pretty funny to see the differences.
I made breakfast that took time. This is one more step for me in getting my booty back into the kitchen more. We are finally settling into the old ways. These are pancakes smeared with apple butter and topped with real whipped cream. Yummy.What has your week looked like? Have a great weekend!
