Read until the end to hear what she did with the piglets last night!
You should know in the very beginning of this story how proud we are of our 1 1/2 year old free pound puppy.
Matt and I have always loved and owned dogs. But as we started the adoption process, we re-homed our St Bernard and decided to wait until everything was done and our girls were home and adjusted before we got another.
Side note: I praise God for that glimmer of wisdom we had and the seed in our minds that said it wouldn’t work to keep him in our home. We quickly came to learn our sweet Ayana was terrified of medium+ size dogs.
After we got home, and after working with her to overcome her fear we discussed getting a puppy for the family at Christmas time. We knew we wanted to adopt a mid-sized mutt with black lab in it because Matt’s childhood dog was a wonderful black lab.
Then, last spring, my friend messaged me, “we can’t take care of this puppy we adopted from the pound, do you guys want her?” My brain said, “you wanted to wait until Christmas!” Then my heart said, “but she’s perfect!” Matt picked up Sarah, named her, and surprised the kids with her. Ayana immediately liked her and pet her (which was still a big deal back then). 🌟my story is too long for Instagram, keep reading it in the comments🌟
Butchering day once again means a freezer of plenty and pots of bone broth simmering away! We've already sold 10 and 8 more still in the field waiting to be harvested tomorrow. :) big thanks to @nate_staskiewicz for helping out otherwise this would have taken forever! #farmlife#pasturedchicken#raiseyourownfood
I went out to spend some quiet time in the garden before the kids get up. Instead I found this naughty chicken wandering around where she's not supposed to be. The fox are watching, little chicken!
I chased her around a bit with no success until she decided enough was enough and put herself back. Crazy bird.
Now I'm back in the house breathing in one of my favorite oil blends to get me back to that Zen state I was looking for to begin with. Serenity is super good for that. (And even better is the fact that today I ordered a bottle of Serenity and they threw in a bonus bottle of Lavender! I'll get you the deets if you want some!)
