Our weather these days has been a touch schizophrenic. There is a saying in North Carolina, “If you don’t like the weather, wait an hour.”
From our devestating ice storms, to 70 degree weather, to high speed winds and back to sleet and snow, our weather has been swinging from one end of the spectrum to another.
Leaving the hospital yesterday morning, my car door was frozen shut. I am so hoping the weather begins to trend to warmer over the next few weeks. Even though Spring officially starts on Thursday, Mother Nature seems to have plans of her own.
The Big Farm barn has been ordered, and we are all anxiously awaiting the arrival of the materials. We decided to go with a kit barn, so all of the materials will be delivered and a builder will put it together on the property. The barn placement is all staked out and is much easier to visualize now. We are all so excited to see what the barn will look like all put together.
This Friday, we are welcoming a furry little addition to our homestead family. This little guy was found abandoned at a local vet office and has become the unofficial mascot for the office. He is a silly rabbit who loves to be cuddled and pouts when he is put back in his cage.
If you have any name suggestions, I would love to hear them!
The coming weeks bring a busy work schedule (you are surprised I know!), but also a few mini vacations. As the Big Farm blossoms into existence, I plan on enjoying a few getaways, since this will be harder to do once we have a bustling farm to care for.
In a few weeks I will be going with my parents and two of my necies and nephews to the Mother Earth News Fair in Asheville. It is a huge conference for homesteaders and farmers. They have exhibits, lectures and all sorts of fun events. I am super excited to absorb everything I can over the trip.

Until next time…
