Around the Homestead

I wasn't going to call this post "around the Homestead", but as I logged on this morning two of the blogs I read have done the same thing I was going to do today. Just me and Hidden Haven Homestead. So I thought, why not, let's start a trend.

These are different then the usual photos. This is about finding beauty in the mundane.

I would love to see your "around the homestead" photos.

Great pics! And we are in the same 'water everywhere' boat with you. Keeps this up and we'll all need boats! :)

Donna. W said...

Wonderful collection of photos! My Missouri River is full to the banks... and then some.

SkippyMom said...

That was fun!

I love the pics, especially the baby under Mommy's tummy. They are looking right at you. So funny and adorable.

Peggy said...

I always enjoy your photos much better than mine. You make homesteading so exciting!

Courage peeking from under Muriel is so cute. Emma likes the dinosaur photo the best. And, um, have you seen the forecast? You might need a pontoon.

Jennifer, the horse neighbor has a speed boat ;)

Donna, you guys have been getting a lot of rain too! Our rivers are rather full as well.

Skippymom, I thought it was too cute as well. I was going for a nursing shot, but she looked over at my just as I clicked.

Peggy, I love yours! You have kids doing real chores!

Melissa, tell Emma, that the dino one is my fav as well. Are you planing on coming out Sunday? We are hoping to get to the farmstead. Saturday would be best. Give me a call and I will let you know what roads are open.

love the chicken, but that dinosaur almost made me choke. I thought it was a lizard at first. My fear of lizards (even in pics) is disturbing.

The mama picture is my 2nd favorite...My favorite is the chicken... What in the heck breed of rooster is that? I think I'm seeing that its part Polish and part Marans. Aww, heck! Lemme have a drink and ponder his parentage later. He really looks like a muppet!

That rooster is a handsome dude! And I love the mama and baby -- too cute!

Love your photos. I just had to let you know your blog is such an inspiration to me that I nominated you for the lemonade stand blog award. Thanks for your great homesteading ideas!
