Our Plan for a Simple Christmas

I love Christmas! It's my favorite holiday. Unfortunately, it also seems to be the one that stresses me out the most. Over the last few years though we have worked at paring down the holiday to the things that bring us the most joy. The two things that have made the most impact are choosing to not run all over creation and focusing on traditions instead of material things.

The Home as a Priority

Meal Plan: Oct. 23

Time to get back in the meal planning saddle.

When we don't meal plan we tend to lose vegetables and leftovers in the refrigerator, our meals are not as healthy as they could be, and we spend more since I end up having to run to the grocery store more often. I had been blaming a crazy summer, since summer always throws off our routine a bit, but it has been autumn for quite awhile now so I am out of excuses.

Three Lessons in Keeping a Ram

It's that time of year.

Love is in the air.

Well, if you're a sheep that is.

And if you plan on having lambs this winter or spring you are going to need a ram.

This will be our third breeding season here at the homestead and while this makes us far from experts we have learned a thing or two about keeping a ram on the property. We have mostly learned through making mistakes and I would love to share them with you so you don't have to learn the hard way like we did.
