Today is #tuesdayonthehomestead and I had considered playing along with @whisperingmoonhomestead to share what my typical Tuesday looks like, but I didn't figure it would be a particularly exciting day.
It all started out as just another #tuesdayonthehomestead... egg gathering, shit shoveling, planting, weeding, harvesting, breaking up a chicken fight, refilling the duck pool, doing dishes, baking, cooking, homeschooling, you know the drill. Work. Then our best cat Atticus who had been missing for almost three weeks returned home! Pretty much everyone thought he was dead except me (we have a lot of predators around here) because I always dream of our pets when they die and I didn't have such a dream of him. He's still a baby, just 10 (our last two cats were 18 and 20). Cats are a useful homestead addition -- in the time he was gone, despite having two other kitties, the amount of mice around the property escalated. This little dude surely earns his keep as a hard working mouser. So glad to have him home!
Go check out @whisperingmoonhomestead if you'd like to play along.
