Room or Stall?

Maya has been wanting a horse since we've moved back to the country and since she can't have Mr. Lonely. So an artist we know made this beautiful picture on a huge canvas and then dad made it like an actual stall door in Maya's room. Totally cool right?! It looks great and Maya loves it. There's even plans maybe in the future to make it like the door can open and then have shallow shelves in there (her room is on an outer corner so we can't make an actual small closet thing like we wanted). Always creative around our house. Can't wait to do the upstairs and share the photos with y'all!

Mamma had a Cow

Mom went around the house waking everyone up this morning saying that we had a calf, the only thing I hesitated for was the camera. The long awaited moment came. Our beautiful Jersey mamma, Mollie, just had her calf this morning. Oh it's so sweet and beautiful! It is a bull, at least that's what we can tell. Dad picked him up to see his weight, and he's about 35-40lbs. Healthy, and big. He has big brown eyes, he's light brown, and sooo soft. There were 9 people watching him stumble around, hear his first noises, and then watching him milk, and all 9 were going "awwww!" I can't believe that Mollie finally dropped him! We were so excited. Because he is a bull then we have pre-decided to sale him, but until then I'm sure that all 9 will make a bond with him - his name is already Sanders- Dad held him while we all got to touch and feel the little one, luckily Mollie wasn't too over protective. (That is a huge change if you have seen the very first post about her!)
Enough talk, here's the precious photos!

Isn't he precious?!

Honey on the Farm

This summer has really been great. Learning all sorts of lessons on managing money, taking out loans, and getting back profit (that right now, goes right back into the bees!).
This is one of my jars of spring honey. Beautiful, light, and oh it tasted so good. I was glad to start building up a clientele. Some close friends in SC and as of right now, I even have some people interested and buying from 2 different states! Clearly excited about that seeing as they aren't family members, or even close friends.
Going to make it through the winter and then make and even bigger push next spring and summer. See what we can come up with.
I currently have a $700 payment to make, and I have about $200 of it, counting on God seeing as he's the one in control of the honeybees and gonna see what I can do about the other $500. Just faith and trust, He will provide.

:) Honey anyone?
