Updates from the Homestead
Well the countdown continues!! My son will be on leave and arriving home on Saturday! Everyone is so excited to see him. The painting is coming along well and should be done very soon. And we have been enjoying some beautiful days here in the
Yesterday the temps were in the upper 80’s! I loved it.. but I know it won’t last as those are more like July temps than May! But what a blessing to be able to enjoy them now! The kids and I spent the afternoon down at the pond. Jacob with his usual creativity made a raft.. he found scrap plywood and then got all the life jackets we own and tied them with rope onto the plywood and it worked!
Dinner last night was rib eye steaks on the grill.. yum! We have been very happy with the cow we bought the meat has tasted delicious! The night before we did burgers on the grill.. yum on those too!
The girls came home last night! I actually ended up going to bed before they arrived, I had been up since 4:am and was just beat.. so I will see them this morning when they wake up. I missed them and will be happy to have them back in the house again.
Today more painting is on the plans plus laundry and organizing. I have some things to go through in my never ending quest to keep up on stuff around here.
Dinner for tonight will be something really good that I will figure out here soon! LOL.. I need to sit down and work on a June menu.. oh and get a June menu calendar made and put up on my site!! I almost forgot.. if you use my calendars.. I will try and get it done and posted today!
Here are some pics I took yesterday of the pond and the kids having fun…
Here is a pic of our pond:
