Happy new year. Have an afternoon cuppa on me. I’d like to thank everyone on this forum for all the great advice and encouragement on our new family adventure to build a homestead and mini farm for hopefully generations of my family to enjoy and keep going. Hope everyone has an amazing 2020 I know I will do my best to make it so.

Happy New Year to all also. Didn't stay upto watch a ball drop and since I woke up this morning, I think that it is a good start to the new year. Weather still a bit warmer than normal but not going to complain. No ice, no snow, no miserable cold temps. Yup, good start to the new year. Hope that 2020 is a good one for all.

Coffee is on. DH back to work. Not sure what we are going to do....I need to get some bill stuff and this and that. Tried to find someone to go trail riding but everyone is busy plus it's supposed to be windy. Split Firewood is all stacked. May just clean house and prep schoolwork.

Good happy new year morning to all. A crisp 33 at wake up but heading to low 60s and I'll take it!! A few light rain showers tonight and tomorrow...they say "scattered". I'd like to NOT be scattered upon. :D =D

Breakfast was leftover chicken breast from last night. It was yummy. Fast for this AM & went well with my coffee. Today it's back to work for me. About 4-5 hr, no big deal EXCEPT that I'm getting so in love with so much time at home to do what I need and want. :old

Bet my animals are wondering why I'm late....Oh, well.

The animals don't know the day of the week but I think they like Thursdays. I get the trash and recycle to the road by 7:30 then go do animal chores. It is usually later all the other days, at least in winter.

You will seldom find snakes where there are hogs. They will kill them, poisonous or not. When we had hogs, the snake population just disappeared. But it is an established fact that hogs will kill snakes. So that ought to make it better for your kids and their safety in the yard.

So the offer of moving into the house and having 5 acres is to "give it to you" ???? Legally and all? Will that mean that you will not have a mortgage or any kind of loan payment? If so, then figure what it will take for you to be able to survive and pay the bills. Then you and your husband can make the decision of what kind of job he needs to be able to provide for a decent living. Not having to make a big mortgage payment can really offer you options in income "needs and wants"....
