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.

Little Hunter

Last night most people stayed up late and slept in this morning...but for us New Years eve means going to bed early because New Years day marks the opening of late doe hunting in this area! Today was the start of a great year ahead and we were all up at 5am to get Bryan and Henry out the door for some deer hunting.
It was a long day for them and no deer were spotted (partly because of an irrational man driving his very noisy truck into the field scaring off all of the deer). It was also extremely cold! When they took out the door this morning it was 6 degrees! Yes, I stayed inside by the fire! After the morning hunt they came home for lunch and a nap for Henry and headed back out for another round...much warmer this time, it was 20 degrees but I was still in by the fire!
By the end of the day they were both exhausted, but excited to have some dinner inside where I successfully brought the living room temperature to almost 90 degrees (thanks to the wood stove).
Win some and loose some...all in a days hunt!
