It been 3 years since I first opened a Word Press account and I kept wanting to move the blog over, but never had the energy to learn WordPress, I was comfortable with Blogger.. But we are looking to expand our online options, so I am taking a crash course of trial and error.. If you notice we have a domain name as well… You can find us at BlessedLittleHomestead.com or BlessedLittleHomestead.org. I would love any and all input and advice as I try to settle in to our new home.. so now to the journal
On The Homestead
I am discouraged with the homestead. I feel that we aren’t progressing in any way. Funds have been extremely limited and it seems the more we try to become self sufficient the more dependent we are becoming upon others. Two steps forwards, three steps back, you know. The good news is Black Betty had what those in the birthing community would call “rainbow babies”. She gave birth to twins on July 7th. A little boy and a little girl. Black Betty enjoys being a mother.. More so than Fiona. Not that Fiona isn’t a good mom, Black Betty seems to be more patient. It could very well be that Black Betty is older..
The goats are quite adorable..
The chicken experiment is not going well.. We have purchased two set of two week old babies, both being massacred within a day or two by two of our dogs. We have tied them up, and double secured the coop, but the dogs still got loose and got in.. It is my feeling to get rid of the dogs but my family opposes that decision.. So for now we just have one rooster who is missing his tail feathers and two dogs who live tied up..
