End of November on the Homestead

It was another rather quiet month at our place. We had a bit of snow here and there, but for the most part the weather has been unseasonably warm and dry. We have a fire in the wood stove most of the time to keep things cozy warm indoors. And I do love that it gets dark so early these days.

Here are a few images from the end of November on our happy gentle homestead. {smile}

A few more tidbits from this month...

My dear hubby and our boys were not successful in harvesting a wild animal for the freezer this hunting season, though they did enjoy all of the time they spent together trying.

Our chickens have apparently begun their winter hiatus from laying eggs. We don't use artificial lights in their coop, so we will likely have to wait for the increased daylight hours of springtime for egg laying to pick back up again.

We are discussing adding to our goat herd, if a goat or two (or three!) that is a good match for us becomes available. It would be fun to milk goats again, I think. It has been a long time since I had any, but goat milk has always been my favorite.

That is about it for homestead updates as this month comes to an end. But you won't hear me complain about it being rather quiet around here... and there will be plenty of excitement once the snow flies, I just know it. {smile}

Joyfully...
