About Me

My photo
My tremendously supportive husband & I have 3 wonderful children, 1 dog, 12 laying hens, 2 dairy goats, 3 bee hives, and a 2000 sq foot vegetable garden on a small 1/4 acre lot in the city. In the center of it all is our small 1,000 sq foot house purchased in 2008 as a foreclosure that we fully renovated to host our growing family, home school adventures, and small home business (CozyLeaf.com). We have a desire to learn a path to self sufficiency finding ways to be good stewards of the resources God has given us. We want to learn to live with less as we laydown roots to our little homestead.

Warm wood stove on a cold day

Sarge loves to snuggle up by the fire! I'm still surprised he gets so close to the fire, but he sure loves it!
I love to sit by the fire with a nice cup of hot tea. There is nothing like a warm fire on a cold day!

  1. So cozy! Do the goats like the wood stove as much as Sarge does? :)

  2. We have two wood stoves that we use. Our three dogs and two cats can be found by them all the time.

  3. Erin, the goats would LOVE the wood stove I am sure...but they are not allowed in the house anymore...ever since they jumped up on the counter and ate my water bill :) That is one thing about goats, they really dont go for the food (like a dog or cat would), but they sure do go for the paper! Books are so vulnerable around Peaches and Poppy!
