Howdy folks! Just popping in to wish you all a Happy New Year! And to share our Homestead goals for 2019.
I have just sent out my very first email newsletter! So if you have subscribed to it, some of this will look very familiar. 🙂
If you haven’t subscribed to my email newsletter, please do so here!
These are current articles on the blog that are things that relate to what you can be doing now in your garden or on your homestead, or getting ready to do soon!
This past year brought a lot of changes around here! Last January, my oldest daughter got married! Seems like she was just born yesterday! How does that happen?!? Anyway, we are very happy for them and it has been fun to have a son/brother join this family of mostly girls!
Than my hubby got laid off after 23 yrs on the job right after July 4th. That threw us for a loop and was completely unexpected. Needless to say, it put a huge damper on things as we sorted out what came next. He got a new job in October which we are very thankful for. We had been used to having him work from home, but now he goes into the office, so that is quite a change.
I also went back to work part time working from home and I am now working for my old architectural firm doing some CAD work for them. I had to catch up on the latest software for that, after being home for the last 20 yrs, and spent August doing that training and started doing work for them in October.
My middle daughter started her second year of college last fall, and my youngest is a senior in high school this year. Crazy to think she will be graduating so soon and that we will be empty nesters!
In February, I finally launched this blog! I am having fun with it, but boy is it a lot of work. There is so much more behind the scenes stuff that goes on to make it work, you wouldn’t believe it unless you are a blogger too. I am glad to say I spent a lot of time last year figuring out the basics. This year I hope to add a lot more content.
As always, please feel free to reach out to me if you are struggling with something in the garden, with your food preservation efforts, and/or raising chickens related. Those are where I feel my strengths are, and I am happy to help! Plus, it may give me an idea for a blog article! The easiest fastest way for me to respond is if you reach out on Facebook or Instagram as I am on them many times a day. Sometimes my email doesn’t get seen right away. So if you haven’t yet, feel free to follow me on my Facebook page or on Instagram.
OK, well I seem to be blabbering on, so I will wrap this up. Be sure to watch the blog for a couple new articles about pressure canning coming up within the next week or so.
Again, thanks so much for reading! I really appreciate it!
Wishing you all love, peace, happiness, kindness and a productive New Year!
