Boxes and boxes

Moving is stressful and doing it with a farm full of animals and a baby is even more difficult.  We are however on the home stretch of this whole process.  Our house has sold and so we are just waiting on a closing date at this point.  We have not yet found a new farm to go to yet which is stressful but I have faith that it will all work out.  I have figured out mostly where all of the farm animals will stay in the event we have not been able to find a farm before we close.   I am very much looking forward to this time next year when I hope to have many cute lambs hopping around the farm.img_7385

Wonderful

Jeff and I took the dogs and our daughter snowshoeing the other day! I don’t remember the last time I went snowshoe. The woods were beautiful and the dogs loved being out of the house! This is the kind of winter activities I love so much better than slogging through snow with bales of hay!

Well we are still here, perhaps a bit chilly but we are here. Our farm has been covered in a deep blanket… I mean smothered by a layer of snow. Normally I am all for branches covered in a liberty layer of white and a clean fresh snow to make fresh footprints in however not now. My chickens have chosen to stay in their coop for three weeks now meaning I also haven’t had any farm fresh eggs either. The horses and sheep have also preferred to stay in their shelters as well. Henley and I have been hiding in our house as well as it’s really just to cold to do anything outside. Cabin fever has reached a critical level here at the farm and I’m sure my husband is wondering how we will possibly wear all the things I’m knitting up. I hope all of you are stay safe warm and dry as well!
