Homestead or Not?

Some seem to think you need at least a few acres to make a house into a homestead, not me!  This little house of ours is set on just over a quarter acre or there abouts. 


 I like to think that at some point we will be close to doing much for ourselves.  Of course we've only been here not quite 2 years and these things take time.  Still, weekends like this one remind me of how much we have achieved :)   I'm reminded of how much God has blessed us in this new home, regardless of other things going on.  Our pantry and freezer is getting stocked up ready for Autumn and Winter which will soon be upon us.
Fresh baby carrots from the garden



Capsicum Relish getting made & Zucchini Slice just out of the over to be frozed for lunches














Sewing and crochet is slowly taking place to send out to family and friends for swaps, birthdays, blessings and popping away towards Christmas.    In other words............. life is good, regardless of the bumps along the way (after all, without bumps, how would you ever climb those mountains and get to see the wonderful view!).

Speaking of views....... Pete and I will be heading to the Sunshine coast in about 2 wks time to celebrate our 27th anniversary staying with a couple of our friends up there and then a couple of days on our own before heading back at the end of the week!  It will be a lovely break.......... and I even have a few days off work either side of our trip away in order to tend to some things around here.    As most of you know.......... there is ALWAYS something that needs doing :)    Love and Hugs to you all,   Sharm  xoxo

mmm Those carrots looks yummy. We're going to try planting them this year, along with some other vegies we haven't tried before. I think your homestead looks lovely. Have a great holiday.

I think a quarter of an acre is definitely worthy of being called a homestead. I am so glad you liked your pressies had such a lovely time thinking them through and making them for you. xx
