We're getting there


With winter seemingly right around the corner things have been super busy and, as much as it pains me to write, I am looking forward to the snow and the cold. Chuck has been working like crazy on the foundation. The picture is from last week, he is actually almost done, and then the flooring and before you know it we will have an addition.

The farmers market is almost over, which has been wonderful this year. I sold some canned peaches, and pickles, and homemade frozen cookie dough. The most popular flavor was my chocolate chip caramel surprise cookies. I can't even make a regular chocolate chip cookie anymore without there being complaints that there is no caramel in the middle:)

The lambs have all been slaughtered and we are enjoying the meat. Last week I rendered lard from the pigs. I have not used it yet but I am excited to try it. I will let you all know how it turns out.

The kid is now 3- how time flies. She can't wait to have her own bedroom, and really neither can Chuck or I. It is amazing how small the house feels already, knowing that more room is coming sure does not help.

I am at the end of my 7th month and boy is time really flying with this pregnancy. We have our homebirth midwife that we have been meeting with and so far everything is good. When the first kid was born we were living in my dad's house, indoor running water and electricity, this one should be interesting. But the midwife and a friend who will be our doula are up to it. I am excited and looking forward to the new baby, but I am glad we still have time.
