Here and there

We’ve been everywhere.

Enjoying violin lessons, today will be our third lesson. We’ve spent countless hours practicing at home.

We went to my favorite place on earth (well because my sheep aren’t here yet, someday 👏)

I brought home the Christmas version of monopoly and now we all have our own set.

We spent the day at Pine Point in Scarborough Maine last Friday. The water was perfect and the sand just right for building. Our spot on the beach wasn’t overcrowded and the weather was sublime. What felt like an hour was really four and it wasn’t until tummy’s started rumbling for something other than the snacks brought along, did we finally pack up and go in search of dinner…and then ice cream (Bayley’s chocolate raspberry truffle is amazing and highly recommended.)

We’ve been at our own beach where I’ve been working on this ten stitch baby blanket.

For my little nephew due next winter.

And then we have been home

Making chicken sausage from laying hens that went into the freezer last fall, after many failed attempts they were just too hard to eat, so we tried another approach and I must say, they are delicious. I am thankful for this because we had 20+ hens in the freezer and short of feeding them to the dogs, we had no idea what else to do.

Now they will feed us through the winter and continue to keep us from having to rely on the grocery store.

We’ve been in the back pasture moving the 15 remaining laying hens, the rest have found new homes on other farms. We now move our coop on wheels once a week rather than every other day.

What have you been doing to fill your summer days?

Happenings

I'm not saying that summer is coming to an end soon, but the signs of fall are rapidly approaching.

From the leaves changing to the cool weather to the insane amount of acorns everywhere.


We have been harvesting lots of goodies from our garden!

I've actually spent three days away from the farm this week:
We spent a much needed day at the beach

I went with my best friend for her hair and makeup test for her upcoming wedding
(No pics until after the wedding sorry)

Friday was the long awaited craft fair, I didn't have much to offer but my bosom best friend had enough to fill our table


My empty little side

Very thankful that my super talented friend had more to offer.

I am still finishing up items for the bachelorette party that happens THIS weekend! By finishing up items, I mean doing every knitter and crocheters favorite thing…weaving in the ends. I am very excited to share what I have been working on, it really has been a fun project.

Have a great week folks!
