Morning coffee

It’s a perfect morning to read outside while the chickens make their loud clicking noises to each other the chicks are chirping, the birds are singing, my oldest two are still sleeping and my youngest is running around in his underwear #mylittlehomestead🐐🐓🦆🐇 #thisulgybeautifullifeilive💕 #joysoflivinginasmallhouse #joysoflovinginasmallhouse #smallfarmlife #smalltownlife

04.01.2020 Our little homestead

Everything that is happening in the world has got me thinking, and doing something that i have wanted to do for a very, very long time. I want to try and live off this small part of the world that we live on.

We are renting the small property that we live on and it is surrounded by fields with cows, so how can one not be inspired to start farming as well! Since we are renting there is not much we can do to the land, and really why would we since this place we call home is not really ours. But rabbits, chickens, and a garden, now thats something that we can do, that is something that we can move with us when the time comes, that is something that can grow when we grow.

I have had rabbits in my life from the time that I was 16, ever since than I have been in love with this small animal and have never wanted to be without 1 or 2 or 9 in my life. Am i going to have a hard time when it comes to… how do i put this nicely… to process it, to put it on our kitchen table and share a meal with my little family? YES!!!!! I am most likely going to cry, and I’m already wondering WHAT ARE YOU DOING! But than i look at my kids, i look at what is going on in the world and i want to make sure that when times are hard that they have the knowledge to feed themselves and their families. Please don’t worry these rabbits will be WELL loved until the time comes. They will be 4H project animals for my little clover buds, they will help teach my children love, how to take care of something, have more responsibility.

So please join me, in this time of learning, i will be honest with my stories and i hope to make you laugh and cry with me in this thing called life.

~ more next week, thanks for stopping in!
