WELCOME to the February 2020 "You're the Star" Blog Hop!

homesteadingWe have a great deal going on today, as it's the first day of the kids' February break. Sam's heading north to go skiing with friends, and the girls are enjoying a slow start while waiting me to finish up a few things before heading our to the workshop.

We have two Langstroths to build for a client over in Vermont, and last night, another client dropped off a top bar that needs repairing. A black bear had decided to open it up from the bottom, so we're planning on taking it apart and doing a bit of repair work.

Vacations are fun around here, whether we're traveling or staying at home. The kids know how to entertain themselves, and it's a good time to get caught up on the odds and ends of homestead living. Things like room cleaning, dog grooming, workshop organizing... plenty of choices.

Though we're not traveling far this school break, we are taking the girls to Boston to the Museum of Fine Arts, then out for dinner in Chinatown to our favorite dim sum restaurant. Enough to celebrate the break, but not so much as be an overwhelming budget hit.

Be well, and keep your eyes open. Spring is just about here:)
