A Visitor

We have a friend staying with us for a month to learn homesteading skills and have fun!
She has been here three and a half days and so far she has:

  • Milked a cow

  • (Helped) shear sheep

  • Peeled logs

  • Planted in the gardens

  • Experienced our hand wheat grinder

  • Got a sour dough bread making lesson from Theresa

  • Made a batch of soap with Annie

  • Learned some wild edibles

We've also been having a whole lot of good fun! We've been playing:

  • Volley Ball

  • Badmitten

  • Football

  • Concentration

  • Bluff

As well as going on a 8+ mile bike ride, playing in the creeks and on the lake shore and having a late night slumber party every night.


  1. What a wonderful opportunity to learn hands on what a homesteader does. I bet she is also having alot of fun while learning!

    God's Blessings,

  2. Great! Sounds like great fun for Jules and for you.

  3. Yup, sure is a blast! Oh and by the way I DIDN"T make soap with Annie, I watched her toil and labor and I didn't even do anything. :)

    Sure is cool soap though...well thanks for the post Mary. ;)

    Sitting next to you,
