Fresh Homemade Bread

All summer I make fresh bread to sell at the farmers market. I enjoy making the bread, I love the smell of it. I love grinding the wheat. For some reason once Farmer’s Market is over I go into vacation mode and stop baking. 

Last week I made bread for a friend. I made one load extra for my family. Then I saw my baby girl staring at the bread.  I then realized that vacation is over and my blessings need homemade bread. I normally bake 8 loaves at a time. I know that one loaf will be eaten fresh out of the oven. Another two or three in the next few days. 

This week I realized that winter is the best time to bake and warm the house.

Rescue Cats

When you live on a small farm you must have a cat or ten. We choose three. All of our animals our rescues. We have Stinky (the yellow one) who came to us from a friend who could no longer keep him. Then we have two shelter cats that came to us last month. I am so grateful to those who volunteer at the shelter. These are the sweetest cats ever.  I encourage you to always look at your shelters for your new pets. 


Turkey Legs

love sharing how we save money feeding our big family. One of my favorite tricks is buying things like turkey and hams during the holidays and saving them for a everyday meal. This week we found turkey legs on sale for .99 cents a pound. One leg will feed two people. The boys can even pretend they are eating dinosaur legs. 

How do you keep stocked up when feeding a large family?

Volleyball Time 

I am so grateful for my dear friend Bobbie who took these pictures of my girls.  We are super excited about this volleyball season, 


No More Co-Sleeping

It has been a wonderful four years. After four years my baby boy has decided he can sleep on his own in his own bed. He has all his amimals (animals). His only concern is that I do not have a amimal of my own to sleep with. I reminded him that I have daddy but he still wants me to have a amimal. 

  Why do they have to grow up so fast? So for now I will check in on him and his amimals and then wait for my morning snuggles.
