Times are uncertain. This COVID-19 scare has us all taking precautions. Our state and local authorities have advised that we stay away from public places. It’s recommended that we practice social distancing to flatten the curve of new cases.
For RancherMan & me, that may look different than other folk’s social distancing. Come along and see what a day on the Homestead looks like during this time.
I usually make plans for the day and work towards implementing them to keep things running smoothly. And then things change. Wanna see what a day on our Texas Homestead is like?

Whelp, here we are at the end of 2019. This year has been filled with firsts for me. I finally got an Instant Pot and learned to make IP Cheesecake (YUM!) and even easier IP Yogurt. I also got a bread machine & learned to make a 2-Lb Honey/Oatmeal Loaf. RancherMan’s favorite!

D’ya ever wonder what it was like to be on a Texas Homestead? I thought it would be fun to share… Here each day offers something new. Some days we’re focused on land maintenance like mowing pastures or repairing fences. Other days we might focus on bees, the garden or the cattle. But this week we had one day in particular that ended up being a very challenging day for us.
The temps that had once cooled nicely had made a wicked resurgence. On this day between the heat & humidity it was supposed to feel like sweltering triple digits. So RancherMan & I decided to work the cattle early in the morning while it’s cooler. That’s when everything went south…
