Today, i thought I would just share some of the list of projects and plans for the homestead. Sometimes it seems pretty overwhelming. But it is just like running a 100 mile race-one step at a time, one foot in front of the other. We will eventually get there. These arent necessarily in order exactly.
Hire pest company for bat removal and sealing up the attic.
remove and replace all insulation.(which is full of bat poo)
Replace rotted sill on foundation.
investigate cracks in foundation
repair, or maybe replace, front porch. (Rotted boards)
paint complete exterior of house
Repair plaster ceilings and walls and remove wallpaper in interior of house.
paint complete interior
repair broken windows
replace casement window
Dig up and replace sidewalk
Dig up and replace driveway
tear down old shed
refinish wood floors.
Add another bathroom
build garage and barn
Fencing for horses and goats
start the garden space
Remodel duck shed for goats.
plant fruit trees
add screen porch and deck.
plant berry bushes and perrenials
get more chickens
get rabbits and cages
Some of these things are major, both in expense and effort.
some are smaller. We have lots of work ahead of us.
This weekend, we are hoping to sit down and plan out some of these things. Having a plan of attack helps to stay focùsed. We need wisdom to know how to proceed.
Weather today:about 22 this morning, some sun, snow squalls and wind.
Wildlife:all the usual suspects at the birdfeeder
Training:push-ups! I am only up to 30. Goal is 100.
Thought for the day.
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
(Glad to know this one for sure!)
