This Week on the Homestead. 01/12/20 - 01/18/20. Our weekly diary post of the happenings around our home.
This has been quite the busy week. In addition to Christmas, our two youngest children had birthdays this week. That makes for a lot of cake, cookies and presents.
We had a few storms come through this week. According to our rain gauge we had around .9 inches of rain this week. We even had some lighter rain which is good because it doesn’t all run off down our road.
The prior owners had a bird feeder and a platform for a quail block. This week I finally put food there to see if we could attract any birds.(more…)
This week has been really busy due to work and church meetings. Our oldest son has started playing the flute in the church orchestra at our new church. This is a good thing, but can be a bit time consuming.
I was able to get some really nice sunrise pictures one day.(more…)
In the past I have done a weekly post called Wednesday in the Garden. It was more for myself to keep track of how the garden was doing. I hope that people enjoy the pictures that I put up along the way.
Now that we are on a much larger property I am expanding the concept. This will be about what we see and do on our property as a whole. These are going to be things that possibly don’t warrant a full post of their own.
This was our first Thanksgiving here in Arizona and this house. We are very thankful for what we have. This house is giant and our yard is beautiful. There are so many opportunities for us.
The morning after Thanksgiving we had quite the thunderstorm. There was even a tornado warning for a short period of time. Our rain gauge only showed around .6 inches of rain, but we also got a lot of small hail. These pictures and video where taken using a flashlight since it was still dark.(more…)
