So this is mostly for me. The ideas are more specific to what I want to accomplish this next year but most could fit any new homesteader. I was actually surprised at how easy it was to come up with 52 ideas.
As I complete each project I will (hopefully) link to a new post to go into more details.
I’ve been so bad at doing any kind of blogging. But with social media going the way it is I feel more inspired to update photos here. So here it is. Our new (well last September), hopefully forever, home. At least the land, we do want to build a bigger house some day.
This photo was from October, not long after moving in. It has been a lot of work to get it to an actual home. It had no power, no water, no insulation, and a whole bunch of other “no’s”. Really just some walls and a couple of windows that needed to be replaced.
So here it is today! We added on two bedrooms and a mudroom area with a second door. We now have solar, though the panels are still in need of a permanent home. We have added some friends (I’ll do a separate post for them) and a lot of snow! There is still much to do but it’s finally feeling like home.
So kid costumes are my thing. I LOVE putting together costumes usually from a favorite movie or book. This year, Remington won a bear bonnet so naturally I had to do my three favorite bears from books. First up is Paddington. The kids actually kept getting the names Paddington and Remington confused before he was born and then wanted to name him Remington Paddington. But that felt like a kind of long name. This costume is so easy. Bear bonnet (or red hat), blue toggle coat with a tag that says “please look after this bear”, a jar of marmalade, and some red boots!
I can’t wait to share our other two bears! And some big kid costumes next week! Any guesses?!?
Love this boy. Remington loves mommy, his dog, and Nellie’s hair. Is very undecided about food. Does not like when mommy “leaves” him (like to the other room) and when dogs lick him. Vacuuming is his favorite chore followed closely by sorting laundry.
