I haven't written in such a long time and I've missed it..  I had a rough fall with colds settling in my chest and as it goes I've had one from May going into June.  As of today it's been four weeks.  The bronchitis is gone but I just can't get my voice back.  Everyday my voice is get stronger but still just not a hundred percent.

Daughter and husband have purchased their first home.  So we have been slowly helping them move in.  We have all decided to move the animals over to the new homestead since they have ten acres now.  So setting up pastures, fencing, coops and so on is taking some time.  Especially since hubby and son-in-law both are very limited physically.  What has help us are the grandchildren.  They are all getting so big.  Number one grandson will be thirteen next month.  I can't believe it.  I remember the morning he was born as if it was yesterday.  Before I digress too much let me get back to our update.  We've moved several of the ducks, chickens and turkeys over.  Not all because we will keep a limited amount with us.  Don't want to run to daughters everyday to get eggs.  We've set up the pig pens and they will be there later today.  We are still working on clearing pastures for goats and looking for the right spot to move the rabbits.  They will take just a bit longer to move. 

As for the gardening that will happen here for the most part.  We have, because land was limited, gotten  creative with container gardening.  This fall will change that.  With animals over at daughter and son-in-laws, all that well fertilized land will become a huge garden.  For the first time I really feel we will be able to live from our backyards.  Daughter will have several fruit trees, grape vines, berry bushes, figs and olive trees.  That will give us more of a variety then I had room for and not just veggies.

Daughter and son-in-law are also talking about putting in a pond or two and stocking them with fish.  I'm really looking forward to that.  We'll have to wait and see what they decide to stock them with. 

So that's it for today.  I'll be back very soon with more updates.  As always, have a safe and blessed day and most of all be careful.
