Doors for the kitchen cabinets

For the first time since March, we made progress on the house this past week. My Dad has been working on making the kitchen cabinet doors. Thursday, on Thanksgiving Day, we decided to put some up. We got three up. He has several more doors that he has made that we need to put up. […]

Fall on the homestead

It’s been a busy fall on the homestead. I’ve spent much more time on the sheep than I have the house. As we spend less and less time outside as the temperature drops, we’ll probably have more time to spend working inside. I learned very quickly that doing chores in the dark is no fun […]

Sheep on the lam

As a shepherd, it has been an education and sobering weekend. I have gained a lot of knowledge but realized that I have a lot more to learn. I was excited to go to the Common Ground Fair this weekend as one of Maine’s leading experts in Katahdin sheep was giving several presentations. Since I […]

Enough of these thunderstorms

I have enjoyed nearly every aspect of my new house. It’s in a great location, there are some amazing neighbors, however they are not too close, and there is plenty of grass for my little lambs to eat. Despite not being finished, I love the house itself. There is one thing, however, that I vehemently […]

Summertime on the homestead

Sisters for Maggie and Molly

It has been just over three weeks since I got my two little lambs, Maggie and Molly. After having them about a week, my Dad thought that a pair of little white lambs would be a great addition. So, I was on the lookout for a pair of little white Katahdin ewe lambs. I mentioned […]

Introducing Maggie and Molly

I have been living in my new house for close to five months now, and I’m loving every second of it. There are still many things that need completing, but just being here this spring has been such a blessing. It is a gorgeous place to be in the spring. There were times that mud […]

Meeting my lofty expectations

I’ve had really high expectations for the loft. It has taken a long time, but we are finally closing in on finishing the loft. The biggest thing remaining was the doors, which were completed over the past week. There is a lot of storage on each side with living space, a small bathroom, and closet […]

Finally – all my possessions at my house

It’s been another momentous week as I continue to settle into my new house. For the first time in many months, nearly all my possessions are under one roof. Until the beginning of this week, I still had a room full of stuff at my parent’s house. Later this spring my whole family is going […]
