Spring has sprung! — 6 Comments

  1. Susan Ingle,

    Wow, I remember the little orange capsule in the margarine containers and my sisters and I also used to fight over who got to squeeze it into the margarine and turn it yellow. Memories…… We also did a lot of camping and fishing all during my childhood; something I never grew out of.

  2. I too love hearing about all the goings on at your homestead. I especially enjoy Hondo and his antics. you guys have sooo much energy and strength it amazes me! Thank you for sharing your lives.

  3. Always a treat to see the latest projects at your place Jackie and Will. Great story about the shingles adventure. Love those apricot blooms! Still waiting for our orchard to bloom here in Gregory.

  4. I too love Spring. It’s a time for renewal and the joys of rebirth. I feel privileged to watch the transformation of your homestead. You are constantly moving forward and it’s a wonder to see.

  5. I seem to remember that you live in Minnesota, and today you mentioned Grand Rapids. Our family lived in Illinois, but every summer we took off for Itasca County and Spider Lake, outside of Grand Rapids, where Bass, Crappie, Muskie, and Walleye were waiting for my Dad. First we stopped in Grand Rapids to get groceries before heading out to the Lake and the cabin waiting there for us. Us kids fought over who got to massage the little dye dot into the margarine…it was very foreign to us and quite exotic! LOL You live in a wonderful corner of the world and I have the fondest memories of our time spent there.

  6. I know this is probably the busiest time of year for you,but you need more time for your blog. I have missed it.
