Good afternoon my shop. Homestead Creations. It was a very busy winter as my family open Homestead Creations. A local craft and gift type shop in town.
With winter(we are hoping ) almost over finally we are excited about spring and summer.
Another snow storm is headed our way tomorrow night into Saturday and we are all hoping that is it, Old Man Winter has been evicted,,its time to get out of here.
Looking forward to starting my seeds, planting our garden, working here in the shop and at the racetrack I cook at.
The farm is still alive and kicking, I cant remember when I wrote last,, but we still have goats and turkeys, chickens,ducks, guinea hens, rabbits and of course Bob the Horse. Looking to raise lambs and maybe a couple beef kritters and pigs this year and that will take care of the veggies and meat supplies.
At some point I will get to where I will learn the art of spinning and using my own wool, and have the time and talent to make cheeses and yogurt.. I miss not having homemade butter from my own cows.
My aim is still to be self sufficient and raise everything we can possibly raise.
I finally am able to start making clothes again. Now we have 3 grand children living with us again and I see summer clothes being made.
I know the children are asking for animals of their own ,, which is awesome,, Never to young to learn to be responsible.
We are all itching to get outside in the sun,, to have the feets of snow melt away. To bask in the sunlight in a t shirt. Evening walks at dusk...
Hoping this year we can get the buggy back in shape and go for rides. Some day to have a covered wagon and come to town,, how cool will that be.
The children will be just beside themselves to finally get to ride in a wagon.
Just wanted to check into see how you all faired the winter. I am getting the web site back up and running now I have the shop to add to it.
Have an awesome day..
Be blessed and a blessing
Hugs and prayers from Homestead Creations and Ledge Hill Farm
