This Week's Goals

Every week is busy, but I find myself forgetting about what needs to get done or time slips right past me! For at least the Spring, Summer, and Fall, I will post what I want to get done weekly. These lists will seem a bit ambitious, but I like to aim high!

Glad I had my list, but what I got done was a bit different. My garden got tilled! So I planted about half of the garden and hope to get the rest done this week yet. The weather was gorgeous and we spent a lot of time outside. The chicken coop and run have been taking more time than planned! The yard work was mostly done by Paige and Dane which was awesome!

Last Week's Weekly Goals

Homesteading/Yard Chores

1. Finish cleaning up the yard and start on the grove
2. Help Rob clean up the three trees that fell last winter and spring (We got two done!)
3. Use the kennel panels I got and make a chicken run
4. Fix the room in the barn for the chicks to go outside  (Rob put chicken wire on the ceiling to discourage bird nests, fixed the window and doors, and cleaned up the walls. I swept the room and put fresh bedding in the room.)
