•••• Winter Wonderland ••••

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!

Lazy Days

My little girls loves to play in he floor in the mornings which works out well for me!  This gives me time in the morning to eat my breakfast and get some much needed caffeine in.  This morning I am also casting on a new project to take with me on vacation next week.  Eventually today we will have to go outside as I am hoping to get the chicken coop cleaned out today. 

What are you waiting for?

I had the most wonderful birthday yesterday spending quality time for myself.  My wonderful mother in-law watched my beautiful baby for me giving me the day off.  I had a lot of time to think about the past years up and downs and what I had learned from them.  Last year we made the decision to finally jump in and buy the farm.  We no longer wanted to wait to have our farm and start our dream.  Shortly after finding the farm we ended up buying we found out we were pregnant with our wonderful little girl.  Although my pregnancy had its many challenges and was by no means easy I made a human being.  Let’s just talk about that for a minute I MADE A HUMAN, isn’t that amazing?  I never thought in a million years that being pregnant would be so hard or that being a mother would be so amazing!  Shortly after our baby girl was born we lost my father in-law.  Sam was one of the best men I have ever known!  He was kind and caring and acted like I had always been part of the family from day one.  I will never forget all the things that Sam did for me he was amazing.  All these things added up to make a roller coaster of a year.  What was the biggest thing that I learned?  Your bucket list should never be a bucket list… It should be your To Do List.  life is to short to wait to do the things you dream of.  Don’t dream your life away grab the steering wheel and live it.  What are you waiting for?

P.S. I also learned to knit and it’s amazing, I am a knitting genious!

Time Well Spent 

I have started packing the house which is extremely stressful, I took this opportunity to learn something new.  I have started knitting!  I started with a hat then for my next project I decided on some nice relaxing…lace.  Right, so a giant lace blanket may not have been the most appropriate stress relief.  I have ripped out the same row twice now so I moved onto working on the fabric basket tutorial to take a break.  This basket is turning out very nicely  and I can’t wait to post the tutorial!  I also got to meet the farmers that I am get my wool sheep from today, my future sheep are very cute and very large.  I hope everyone is enjoying the spring weather!
