January 2019

January was a pretty laid back month here. We enjoyed the long evenings gathered around the wood stove, slaughtered one of our pigs, set goals for our homestead and made plans to help us accomplish our goals in 2019.

John David helped our neighbor build two chicken tractors in early January.

We moved the little piglets from their paddock at the front of the property to the barn with the yearling pigs.

Laura helped daddy move the pigs – this girl loves riding in the tractor!

The sheep are all at the barn for the winter, enjoying their cozy quarters and hay.

One of the exciting things for January was completing our driveway. When we moved here, the driveway was incomplete and we weren’t sure exactly where we wanted the driveway to go. We finally decided we wanted  a circular drive in front of the house. We’ve enjoyed having gravel, especially during this wet, wet winter. (This photo is before the gravel was put down – I don’t have a good ‘after’ picture.)

A delicious hot breakfast. We love breakfast so much that we have breakfast for dinner at least once a week – it’s delicious and everybody in our family enjoys it.

Weston was very proud of this omelet. The 5 (yes, 5!) eggs were from his chickens and he made it all by himself.
