Welcome to the Homestead Carnival #97

Welcome to ElCloud Homestead and ElCloud Homeschool.  We're glad you're here.  It's been awhile since we had a tour of our home, and we've moved to our farmhouse, since we last took an ElCloud Homestead Tour.

While we're here in the driveway, let's look into the garage and see the makeover projects going on inside.  8 year old J has his 4H woodworking project going on in there.

You can see our garden over there behind the house.  We're still planting our seeds.  Steve's been busy tilling the unplanted portion of it this weekend.  We weeded the peas, potatoes and onions on Friday.  Let's see what others have in their gardens:

Come on up to the backdoor.  You can see our guinea hen and the 14 Ameraucana hens there in the side yard.  Speaking of chickens:

Now that you're in the house, you can see our kitchen.  It has some lovely vintage charm ... with cantaloupe colored counters and an avacado sink.  The ancient stove is really cool looking, but persnickety at times.  Everyone's been busy in their kitchens, too.

Grab yourself a drink and let's move into the dining room.  My kids usually have craft supplies all over the table.  With Father's Day just around the corner, maybe your house looks the same.

The living room is right here, connected to the dining room.  If you need a break, you can make yourself comfortable in the rocking chair.  It's great for rocking babies, or yourself, to sleep.  Speaking of babies:

Don't mind Steve, he's busy at the computer over there on the other side of the living room.  He's working on our budget right now.  If you're looking for some budgeting encouragement, this is for you:

Oh, do you have to go now?  I'm so sorry ... we didn't even get to look at the chicks in the basement, view the flowers that are blooming outside, or peek into the bedrooms.  I hope you come again another time, so we can talk some more. 

Have a great week!
