Simple Woman's Book Club February


Title: The Complete Homestead Planner

Author: Cynthia Bombach

I read this book in/on:  Kindle Edition

My personal thoughts on this book: 
I will admit, I have not carefully read every single page, I have however, thoroughly skimmed through it, as it is a planner and I needed to start using and implementing it right away.  I absolutely love this planner, we have chickens, ducks, goats, cats, kids, and garden all here on our 1 acre homestead.  We plan on adding rabbits and a few more chickens very soon, as well as moving the ducks to the garden area.  Cynthia Bombach has invested her time and sweat into making a planner for her and her family that would make things go smoother, and thought that since she had not found one ready to use she would share hers with others.  What a blessing this planner has already been and we are not even into March yet.  I have taken the information that pertains to us and added it to my monthly planner, then I choose "chores" or jobs and transfer them to my weekly planner, which is also my daily planner.  We do not have all the animals listed in her planner, nor do we have large farm equipment, but should we every acquire any of these, I can adjust my planners.  Things get very busy around here this time of year, it is seed starting time, then transplanting, then kidding the goats, sometimes small but very important things like shots or stocking the birthing kit, get over looked, Cynthia's book will be a huge blessing to us.

This book even has a "Look inside" feature

A favorite quote from the book

Not really a quote, but she encourages us to remember to make time for fun.

I don't have a picture of the book, as I got the Kindle Edition, but this is one of the reasons I invested in it.
