I find that time is one of those crazy things. It is always slipping away and I never seem to have enough of it.
The last few weeks have been a bit hectic for me here at the U.H. (Urban Homestead). I had to organize a roast beef dinner large enough to serve 200 already this month; and whew am I glad that is over and done with! It was a lot of work but it raised over $1200. Then I have been spending a bundle of time out in the garden. I am not complaining though. Our family was fortunate enough to have someone gift us about 50-75 strawberry plants from their organic family farm. I stopped counting after I reached 50. That was a whole day affair of digging and separating the crowns and planting. Thankfully the weather here has been quite lovely though and that day of planting was enjoyable. However, very exhausting.
Last week Jade and I whipped up the ingredients for some vanilla pie sugar, finished our aprons for our farmgirl apron exchange and then finally I had my favorite time of the month…Farmgirl Friday! Where Celeste showed the other girls how to make homemade laundry soap and were given other helpful tips on green cleaning! Well for this week…so far with the help of my dear hubby I have repurposed our old deck steps into a border for a raised shade garden, we have almost finished the interior of the new chicken coop and I have done a ton of laundry (where it all came from I have no idea). So I haven’t been trying to neglect you all the last couple of weeks. I have just been too busy to sit and think a bit. Although, my goal this week is to try to figure out how to better manage my time here on the homestead. Maybe I will make a list. Maybe!

P.S. I will post the recipe for the Vanilla Pie Sugar and the Laundry Soap soon!
