A visit to the homestead, and lots getting done....


Wellll- Hello There!!! 
 & Ging Ging Says hi too!!! 



Got a couple visitors to the homestead on Monday..  :)  My two older sisters- Tammy & Caryn- came up to visit- and hang out..  Tammy of course- has a blast with the critters every time she comes- and of course- Ging Ging - especially - loves to greet new folks..  She's quite the greeter- I say!!!  And will bray and hollar atcha's if you don't come to visit too!!! 

Now- how can ya resist this face??  lol..  What a ticker she is... 

And- Tammy took some more pics of our homestead - in progress I might add..  Waiting on some more of that green stuff to shoot up...  We're working on the out buildings- lots of rustic wood to put up still, and lots of gardening and landscaping to do yet...  Oh my!!!  Just so much to do- and so many hours..  But- I think we're gaining...  ( wink wink )... 



And here's just some of our eggs- from our most colorful wonderful chicky poos- below..  They're really producing good now- and are so much fun to watch..  Will probably add a few more to the crew this summer- as we just made their roost and their run bigger..  Working on snazzing that up to the primtastic level- as we speak as well.. 

Remember that time thing??  lol..  Just so much to do!!!  Lovin' all of it though....  





We are turning the tin shed- chicken house- into quite the rustic piece- I do say..   I cannot wait till all that tin is moved- and put on the outbuildings we've been working on- and our front awning...  We'll be painting all the tin, a rust brown red - and our house roof too..   And- I'm going to be planting wild grapevine and all sorts and varieties of climbing vines- everywhere I can!!!  Love vines..  More projects for our summer fun- however- I do have my hubbs to do the high level stuff- while I can plan out the on the ground stuff..  Done deal- works for me..  lol...




And...   Don't think all I do is play outside and visit..  ha ha..  I just got done with yet another huge group of club kits- and they're all packed and ready to head out the door today..  All orders - as of this post- are caught up to date- and I'm on to my next endeavers..  Lots and lots of fun stuff coming atcha's...   Will be sure to post more about those soon!!! 



Well- I'm off to check on the horses- then get a much much needed nap..  Then off to tackle another day!!!  The weather is getting nicer and nicer- and I don't like missing not a minute....

Have a Happy!!! 

Blessings
Niki
