Hi Friends!

I am taking a few minutes to say 'hi' to all of you loyal followers. LOL, or to the occassional follower.:)

I have been very busy these days. I am still working full-time and it has been quite the challenge these last few months. I know many women work full-time while having a family and are doing just fine. I, on the other hand am not doing so well. It is extremely hard being gone for 8+ hours a day while having seven children at home who need me. I am not sure how long my working will last, only God knows but I will for sure let y'all know what happens.

We are gearing up for spring on our hobby farm. Our hens are definitely ready for spring, they miss being outside. Our dog Honeybelle has a new friend to play with, Savannah. She is our new 8 week old Black Labrador. She is cute and will make a good friend for our Honeybelle. We will be receiving 28 chicks the end of March to add to our 5 hens for eggs. My children are thrilled about it! Having more laying hens will be great because we need a lot of more eggs around here than the 3-4 we are currently getting daily. We are also considering getting a couple of milk goats or a Jersey heifer for milk. Being able to provide as much of our needs from our property is our greatest desire. So, I'll let you know what we decide.

I hope my NSM followers are doing well, and staying financially savvy. We are in the process of paying off some more debt and have built up our food pantry back up to six months. This next month will be quite telling for our future...I pray it will be in a positive way.
