I must be getting old because I didn't even make it to midnight last night.:) I tried my best to stay awake but 11pm rolled around and my eyes were awfully droopy so I walked myself to bed. Oh well, maybe next year.
The new year started off with none other than cleaning out all the stalls. I had the task of shoveling poo poo and laying down fresh bedding while my huth-band took down all the outside Christmas lights.
He also began building a pen for Petunia our soon to be mama pig. We bred her to Hamlet and we're hoping for a big litter because the piglets will be ... well.... dinner. We are also considering downsizing our goat herd and purchasing a milk cow this year. I LOVE the goats and I LOVE goat milk soap but we're not drinking the goat's milk, I only make soap and cheese with it so we really don't need four does, we could have two and a dairy cow and that would make more sense.
Okay and let's be honest, I really just want a cow. Every farm needs a dairy cow right? And since our little family easily drinks a gallon of milk a day, this might be a good solution to our dairy needs.
All in due time I suppose.
I haven't done much painting/crafting lately as I was so busy with making Christmas gifts, and I feel the need to do something, sooooo I think I'm going to sew new slip covers for the pillows on our couches. I have it narrowed down to these two fabrics. What do you think?
My friend dropped her son off for a play date with my son and look what she brought me! She picked it out because she knows how I love Americana decor and stars. I have the best friends a girl could ask for!
Well I'm off, the huth-band is going to bed early so he can go hunting early (imagine me rolling my eyes) so that means I get the remote! Hallmark Channel here I come.
Goodnight all, and linking up here today. :)
