Gorgeous Gemma Joins Jack

Posted on: Sunday, August 21st, 2011 in: General

This event has been in the planning stages for almost a year.  Today, after nearly two months of eager anticipation, Gemma (or Gem for short) has finally joined our menagerie. We first met Gemma when she was just four weeks old – very cute even then, as you can see from the pictures below.  There’s […]

It All Happens At Once

Posted on: Sunday, November 28th, 2010 in: Crafts, General, Pigs, Sheep

Yesterday was the day of for everything to happen. My car was getting a new motor, hopefully no more oil leak. Richard has very kindly offered to put it in for us, and even found us a very good deal on the now one. Thank you Richard. Our new little piglets were due to arrive […]

Being Creative While Recovering

Posted on: Thursday, July 29th, 2010 in: Crafts, General

This winter has seen me needing to recover from a couple of injuries that have kept me a little limited in what I do. One was a broken rib and the other was a sprained hand. Both these injuries restricted what I was able to do outside, so I have been pottering along as best […]

Out with the Old

Posted on: Friday, January 1st, 2010 in: Chickens, Cows, Crafts, Garden, General, Homeschooling

The new year is here and now is the time to take stock of the old and reflect on what may or may not need changing. First the unavoidable, the schoolwork. We managed to finish up all our themes from last year and so will be starting a new theme when we start up again […]

Three Years Have Passed

Posted on: Wednesday, September 9th, 2009 in: General

Today it is three years since we moved here! It is a beautiful spring morning, the sun is shining, the birds are singing, all those spring things are happening. Looking back, we have come along way in the preceeding three years. We love this lifestyle, something that many can’t cope with, but for us it […]

That Time Again

It has been a while since anyone has written anything on here, so time for an update. We are still patiently awaiting the arrival of Daisy’s first calf. We are all prepared for it with the milking bay functional, and Daisy willing to go in and eat in there. We have calcium in case of […]

Birthday at Zion Wildlife Gardens

Posted on: Friday, January 23rd, 2009 in: General

This year we took Samantha to Zion Wildlife Gardens for her birthday – she had been asking for quite a while, and it all managed to work out this year. As we expected it turned out to be a bit of an expensive trip (especially with the stuffed toys and t-shirts that we purchased after […]

Time to Take Stock

Posted on: Tuesday, December 30th, 2008 in: Cows, Garden, General, Pigs

As a new year is about to come upon us, it is time to take stock and see how close to our goals we have reached. The garden is starting to crank up for the summer harvest, and we even got our first crop of beans for the year. We eat alot of beans, so […]

Taking Stock and Starting Again

Posted on: Thursday, August 14th, 2008 in: General

In three weeks time, we will have been here for two years. In two weeks it will be spring. Now is the time I have been looking at how we have been fairing especially over the winter. We have not done too badly for beginners at this really. The animals have come through an especially […]

From Fiction to Reality

Posted on: Thursday, July 17th, 2008 in: General

Sometimes things happen that leaves you wondering. We read funny stories in books and wonder how someone would think of it, or if anyone would be dumb enough to try it. And yet we have one of those stories ourselves. A recent conversation we had reminded me of this event that happened a couple of […]
