It’s been a while.
How are you?
I’m here, still ruling the roost at the Village Homestead. I’ve been up to a bunch of things, and I want to fill you in.
For starters, I started an herbal skin care business. I love using herbs that I grow myself, and I was making all kinds of balms with them last year. So many people told me to go into business and I said “Yes! I’m doing it!”
So I did it, and it’s been really good. So good that I even got up the courage to apply to be a vendor at the farmers’ market, and I was accepted!
What else is new? My girls are 9 and 10 years old. We have 13 chickens. Five of them turned 4 years old recently, and the other eight 2.
I’ve got 2 beehives, and I think they both made it through the winter. One definitely did, not completely sure about the other one, but I’ll know for sure when I got out and visit them next week.
My old house is still a big, beautiful old house. She needs a lot of love, but we give it willingly.
