finally friday stay local club

this weekend i’m going to be a part of the stay local club. no pentwater, no cross state flea market trips… i don’t think. just staying home or at least close to home and working around the house. tonight joe has to work so i’ll probably be at the shop a little later working on […]

backyard work

this week the heat has been absolutely sweltering. we put a portable ac unit in our bedroom to keep the air circulating but our room is lofted so it doesn’t stay that cool. however it’s cool enough to making sleep somewhat comfortable. i’m looking forward to next weeks 70 degree temperatures for sure. this past […]

mind your own bees

don’t tell the other animals this… but keeping bees might be the most fascinating thing we have going/growing on the farm. you guys they are absolutely insane creatures. the more i learn about them the more obsessed with them i am. the other day while working out in my garden i noticed that a bunch […]

weekend recap where there’s smoke

Happy Monday morning I smell like smoke and campfire. Let me back up. I smell like my bee smoker? Back up again, yesterday I went out to check my bees and they were so pissed off I literally got stung through my bee suit. Yea that can happen. It was most likely because I had […]

finally friday beach time

32 week baby goldfish

now these weeks are really starting to blur together. it’s crazy! as much as i’m ready for little goldfish to be here i just need to stay in there cooking for 8 more weeks. the longer he/she stays in there the stronger it’s heart and lungs will be for the “real world”. it’s been crazy […]

farm life update

so things have been going a little… off on the home front in terms of our animals. there are moments where you feel so on top of the world and have super hero strength like when you successfully help two ewes lamb and one has twins! and then there are times you just put your […]

new garden

we are about 90% complete with putting in our 2017 garden. we worked our butts off this past weekend getting everything tilled up (thank God for my dad’s tractor) and getting the soil ready. i picked up all my plants from the greenhouse up the road who so graciously started my seeds for me. knowing […]

finally friday baby albers

yesterday was another long emotional day for joe, me and baby goldfish. yesterday we had our meeting with the pediatric surgeon that would be doing the surgery on goldfish once he/she is here. it was a very surreal experience because i think we were both kind of hoping that we would go there and it […]
