A post that Shaye did recently on her blog, The Elliott Homestead, rang so true to me and it has been making me think about my own priorities.
You see, I am a full time mom, a full time nurse, and currently a full time graduate student. There is just not enough time to be a homesteader at this point. Well, there is not enough time to be a blogging homesteader.
With that being typed, I must put the homestead on hold. At least the blogging portion, not that it ever really got started. We still have the chickens and ducks and plan to get a couple more in the spring. We may even add raised garden beds in the spring. But I think that is all. I would love to get 2 turkeys, but we shall see. There will be no bees in the spring, like I desperately wanted. There will be no grand raised garden beds that will provide us with all our produce. There just is not time right now.
I must devote the next 8 months to my schooling, family, and work. Like Shaye let the cloth diapers go, I am letting this project go...for now. It shall not be forgotten. I may even do a quick post here and there, but most likely not.
So, ttfn, my friends...
