The Happyish Homestead

Something is Better Than Nothing

At least that’s what I’m telling myself about this post.

Because it’s been a while since I’ve posted.

Maybe you’ve noticed?

If you’re still there?

Spring is a super busy time around here.

Which is exciting.

And exhausting.

Mostly exhausting.

Bryce says it’s because we’re homesteaders.

I say we’re not homesteaders.

He asks then, what are we?

I say we’re just an average looking couple who has a lot of stuff that causes a lot of work: yard, grass, weeds, garden, bees, children, chickens, house, money.

{Just kidding.

We don’t have a lot of money.}

So, in brief, this is what we’ve been up to:

Harvesting honey

Eating peas, raspberries, spinach, lettuce, broccoli, and cherries.

And eggs.

Lots and lots of eggs.

Jumping on the trampoline.

Eating dinner under the grape arbor.

{Which was recently outfitted with some outdoor lighting.

And is home to a mommy, daddy and two baby robins.}

Adeline got a duck.

We made a chicken run.

{Bryce loves me, but he was tired of chicken poopy being every.where.}

Washing, hanging and folding laundry.

Spray painting and regular painting.

Dishes, always dishes.

Bennett is crawling.

Spencer is always hungry.

Meg still doesn’t know her letters.

And Elizabeth and Adeline are done with school this week.




Hiking at Table Rock









How Adeline sweeps the floor.


How Bennett is the favorite.


How Elizabeth looked as Betsy Ross.

Hope you’re having an awesome week,
