Homestead Happenings December 16 – 22

My weight loss journey continues….. but I’m a little disappointing. I have lost 60 pounds so far but this month at my doctor’s visit….. not a single pound. I lost inches, which I know is all well and good. It means I am building muscle, but I was still disappointed.

The wrapping has begun! As gifts start to trickle in, I have been busy wrapping. I wrapped the gifts I bought, hubby bough, that my Father in Law sent….. I feel like a wrapping machine. Thankfully no paper cuts this year!

So what made me smile this week?

Heidi the homestead hound is so egg-cited!!! After a long drought, the hens are getting back to business! It’s been ages since we’ve gotten more than one egg a day!
Christmas came early for the homestead kitties! Don’t know what to do with your Amazon boxes? If they are big enough you can make a totally rad cat playhouse! Ask Nate! He is loving his new fort, despite constant raids from Ginger who is delighted with all the little holes I made that she can reach in and smack her brother through 😂 The paper packing material from the box is also great fun to sit on and hide under.
So cute, so fluffy, so evil 😂 This squirrel has been taunting Heidi the homestead hound for awhile now. It knows how far her chain we let her out to go potty on is. It sits just out of reach…. It is always around, on the fence or the neighbor’s roof. One day Heidi sat like a statue, waiting for it to come closer, but this is one smart squirrel 😂 I’m thinking we need to name the squirrel so I can yell “hey __fill in the blank__, leave my dog alone!”
Let’s play a game of “who’s box is it anyway?” Yup, hubby and I both ordered off amazon and two identical box showed up today 😂 We have no idea who’s is who’s and they both are Christmas gifts for the other person. That’s what happens when you share a prime account and forget to change to “to” portion when ordering!
Yes, I have officially lost my mind! I went to the store to pick up something I had ordered and ended up walking out with this bad boy. I think it is purr-fect for the holidays!


Remember to take time out of your busy day to find your own things to make you smile!
