The rains have finally stopped! To bad they are coming back. I am sooooo over being wet! I am so tired of the temp patch I did on the critter shed leaking. But we took advantage of the nice days this week to dry out.
I really enjoyed being able to spend more time with my flock and harvest seeds. The sound of the migrating Sand Hill cranes are echoing in my ears. They are migrating this time of year and while their return always makes me sad that the snow will fly soon, they are so beautiful to see. We get thousands of them during this time of year and again in the spring. I am much happier to see them in spring! LOL
We also picked up building materials this week, so we can start reroofing the critter shed! I am so over the moon happy about this. Too bad we will have to sit out a few more days of rain before we can begin.

|You see this woman? If you knit or crochet, you need to know this woman. Her name is Lindsey and she owns The Yarn Garden. This is the magical place where my hubby disappears to from time to time, claiming he is working late. While some men may lie about going to the bar, mine lies about visiting the yarn shop. Trust me, I count my blessings, because if this is the worst thing he does, we are good, like sooooo good. But back to Lindsey…. Her shop is packed full of the most beautiful yarn, like ever. She likes to work with small producers and folks who use natural dyes. You cannot help but fondle things in her store, because it is all so soft. Yes, my hubby fondles things in her store and bless her heart, she lets him. But back to Lindsey… She also writes the most beautiful patterns. Thanks to her and her monthly Seed Club, I have an amazing scarf and hat for this winter! She does ship, so don’t let location be a factor when looking at her stuff. You will thank me for hooking you up with my hubby’s yarn dealer, cause, psssst, she had the GOOD stuff! If you are local and a woman, (sorry guys, it’s a girls night out kind of thing) Tuesday nights are knit night! And even though it is called knit night, you can totally crochet. It’s a fun night to hang out, girl talk, and work on your project or get some help. And if you do go visit Lindsey online or in real life, tell her the truck driver’s wife sent ya. Yup, in the yarn world, that’s my name LOL|
|The darn black squirrel in our tree is going to drive poor Heidi the Homestead Hound nuts. He actually taunts her. I’m not joking. He knows just how far her tie out goes. She sits like this every morning, just dreamin of getting her paws on him…..|
|There was a split second where I imagined all the ducks wearing these, |
but then I remembered I would have to catch them first……
