It is Saturday, right? 😉 With me home and Brian on four 10’s it gets a little confusing.
Let’s see what’s new.
I’m in the midst of painting our living room, to be followed by painting the kitchen. I found my dream couch on craigslist yesterday so my Mom and Kent and I drove down last night and bought it. This is one project that I hope I actually get around to posting pictures of. The room transformation is pretty amazing. I keep walking in there and just sitting down and looking at it. Taking the time to pick the perfect paint color really paid off. I love the way it looks.
I finally finished canning applesauce only to be gifted with another box of tomatoes. Our garden is still producing tomatoes, too. We do need more pizza sauce yet so I just keep putting up as much as I can. Our freezers are overflowing. I need to update my freezer inventory and start cooking with more variety. I did a menu plan this past week for the first time in a long time and that was time well spent.
It’s a busy time on the farm. We have more cattle and sheep then we’ve ever had before. We’d like to downsize some for the winter. We’ll see.
I have some good post ideas for the week but am not promising to actually write them out. As I just shared with my friend Jess @ A New Leaf I go back and forth about whether I should continue to keep this blog going. It hardly seems worth it if I can’t find the time to blog more consistently. God keeps nudging me on though so I keep trying. The biggest issue in my opinion is the wide range of topics I write about. It’s a rare reader who wants to hear about farming, Tot School, God, and menu planning, ya know what I mean? And I don’t really want to narrow down to one focus because that’s not my life. I’ve been kind of trying to post about certain topics on the same day each week so readers will know when to pop in for what they like. Any other ideas?
Actually, if you are reading this, could you somehow let me know you’re here and maybe chime in with what you’d most like to read about? I know there are a fair amount of people visiting the blog that never comment. I could really use your feedback. Post ideas are welcome! I once asked on Facebook what I should write about and although there were a lot of good ideas I can’t find that page now.
I have an idea for an ongoing series of articles… but I’ve never successfully completed any series here on the blog. I always slack off and quit partway in. I’m just going to keep praying about it for now.
What’s up in your world this week? Can you give a girl a little feedback today? Thanks in advance!
