This is the Update!

Posted on

 Hello everyone, if you read my Blogger blog you know I’ve been kinda online for almost a week thanks to our new smart phone. For now we can tether it to our computer to get a very limited amount of internet 5G’s worth period. So I will do my best to update both blogs as I can, I am not sure about posting any pics right now for 2 reasons.


First is that well… I need new batteries for the camera, the weather radio seemed much higher on the battery list at the time we got batteries last. Secondly I don’t know how much “data” I will use posting them.


Now for the updates. We have a complete bathroom as you may have seen out nice bathtub, we also now have a full sized water heater. Our kitchen is complete, we finally got the full sized sink in! We managed to get a full sized stove for free at a local free store here, funniest part about that is a year or so ago we bought a very pretty older deluxe model stove from the same company at a garage sale for $5 (the oven didn’t work). We saw it was the same brand and started laughing.


I have started my plantings, and I do hope it was not too early; however after watching my Elderberry trees sprout leaves a month ago I felt it was time to try some things. I have some cabbage plants in the ground, broccoli plants in the ground, cabbage seed, edible chrysanthemum seed, dwarf pak choy seed, red leaf lettuce seed, kale seed, pea seeds, onion sets, and seed potatoes in. The cabbage plants changed color for a couple of days but seem Ok now. We are really looking forward to some fresh greens out of the garden… soon!


Our hens are laying about a dozen eggs a day and I am trying to find ways to use them up, any suggestions? We are still currently without a car, however that should change before the end of the month (fingers crossed). We saw a older Chevy suburban for $1000 and the gent who owns it currently drives it daily. So we know it works and runs, and can be inspected. Now we just have to wait for “Uncle Sam” to pass our tax money along and we can go get it. It’s -only- down side is it’s bright red in color.


My two girls are fostering a pair of hunting labs and doing the starter training on them, and getting paid to do it. They are paid $20 a week for this, they will be saving the money for this summer when they go to see their grandmother. They are learning a valuable lesson about animal care. Daughter right before school, “…but MOM I don’t want to have to feed them right now. Why do I have to?” I think the wish they both have for all the “cute” farm animals might disappear thanks to this grins


Well that’s it for now everyone.


Be Well, Be Safe, and Blessed Be…
