Let's Catch Up!

I have been MIA lately!

So I thought I would catch you all up on what is going on!

Our kitchen window is finally here...after a month of waiting and delays...
it was finally installed.  So now we can move on to counter tops.
I have our two carrara slabs on hold waiting for the fabricator and
the sink is on its way.

still need to figure out some kind of tiled back splash but we are finally moving closer to completion.
Lord willing, it should be done by Christmas.

Found this little Chippendale shelf.  It had this awful gloss mahogany finish but I
painted it a grey/blue green color and my husband put a back on it
and now it is our little drink station.

The 50th Birthday went off with out a hitch...a good time was had by all!
(love those galvanized stars from Sweet Salvage)

3 out of our 8 chickens are molting...they look terrible and
of course they start the week before we are one of the
stops on the Phoenix Tour de Coops!

The meaties are getting big...
This is the pen we built for the Nigerian Dwarf goats we are going to share
with three families...but they won't move in till
after the meaties go to "freezer camp" the week between Christmas and New Years.

All the beds are FINALLY planted!  Just in time for the Edible Arcadia Tour.

We finally finished installing our fencing and gates, so that the free range chickens
would stay out in the back forty.

We had a true farm to table Thanksgiving

that was enjoyed by friends and family!

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Look forward to hearing and seeing what is happening in
your world too!


  1. So excited you got your windows...Love the new drinkies shelves, so cute...everything is looking gorgeous...well except for maybe the molting chickens which are still sweet if a little raggid around their edges....So glad most of my girls are over that now.

    I am looking forward to see an after photo of the window and see the counter tops in place.

    Blessings Kelsie

  2. How much land do you have on your property, Caroline? You are using it very well!

    I am always interested in what you are up too!


  3. Bwaahaha! 'freezer camp'... that gave me a good ol' belly laugh right there!
    Caroline you are such a funny lady...
    everything looks great not to mention very active.
    My chickens have had a molt yet...haven't had them too haven't got a clue how that will go.

    Shared goating...sounds interesting to; you'll have to give us an update on the process and how it works out in your neighborhood.

    take care, Pat

  4. I am so laughing "freezer camp" what a riot. The cows up the street go on boat rides, busy animals in the US. I've been in a turkey stupor for the last two days but loving it. I can't wait to see your window in and your kitchen finished, you must be so excited! Nice to see you back!


  5. Hi Caroline,

    So glad you are back. I enjoy your blog and seeing what you and your family have been up too. Very busy. No wonder you haven't had time to blog. Don't you just hate destruction/construction? But it sure is nice when it's finished.

    PS - Happy late Thanksgiving
