End and Begin

The ending of the last chapter... Divorce. Sold land.

The beginning of a new beautiful life. Wonderful man in which we have most everything in common. Same dreams, same goals. Soul Mate.

Robert and I have begun our journey together. 

 
As I stated, the land I have owned the past 5 years has been sold. Too many memories, maybe "bad luck";  just ready for a new start to the life ahead with Robert.

We have ordered the building which will be our Tiny House!!! My dream for 7-8 years is finally coming true!! Robert has had the same dreams. 

 

I know God brought us together for many reasons. Some I will go into throughout our journey. Some are personal.

I will be blogging through our days of building our tiny house building into a home. How I have cut back on *things*, things we will do without, compromises we make to live tiny. 

Be sure to subscribe. Sit back and enjoy our exciting journey!

Found a new app!

I am so excited! I found an app that lets me post to my blog using my phone! No more jumping through hoops, downloading photos to my computer then posting. 

This makes me so happy :-)

A Family Cow

I have been thinking, for quite some time, about getting a family cow. I am pretty set on the Jersey breed, mostly due to first and foremost, wanting to have fresh milk. Second, meat.

Another reason I would like to have a family cow is to help with the grass/weed control mostly in the corral, but also in some other areas of the place.

I have found four (4) books available on Amazon on this topic. The one from 1976 I have read so many wonderful reviews about, but there are new ones in the arena, which also have great reviews.



Here are the books to which I am deciding between which to order:

     

Has anyone read any of these? All of the ratings on them are pretty much equal.

There is one more, it is pre-order with no date, so that one is out of the question.

Do you have a family cow? If so, what breed? Any advise?

Not only am I interested in a family cow for the fresh dairy products, but I'd also like to be able to butcher a calf/young cow for meat. I have read that the jersey breed is a good fit for dual-purpose. Do you agree?

Thanks for any information and advise! Have a wonderful Sunday.

Day of Firsts

Today was quite a day here on our little place...

Started out with the first real harvest. I have picked a few items here and there over the past several days, but this was the first *haul*.


Then upon returning from town, picking up the children, we found that Maybelline has hatched her first baby!


Finally, I made the first batch of canned goods of the season this evening. It has been 2 years since I canned anything. Jalapeno jelly!!! It was pretty much a "have to do today" or the jalapenos would have ruined. I had a few I had picked the other day and added them to the ones today to have enough to make a batch of jelly. We love Jalapeno jelly!


So it's been a very busy day here at Eason Acres; just the way I like it!

Who needs a treadmill?

When you have a push mower and over an acre of land to mow???


Honestly it's not so bad. We got a self-propelled push mower (my choice) and it runs so well, I nearly have to run (actually a very brisk walk)! Great exercise for me, though. Felicity learned to mow this week, so having the two of us work together makes the job go quickly.
