Windswept Acres

I'm a city girl turned country dweller, with more miles on me than I care to admit. I share my life with my writer husband and three dogs, none of which were planned (including the husband. Yeah, sometimes good husbands just happen to people!).

We've completed building our goat barn, and have two happy, healthy kids frolicking in the goat yard, as well as our herd queen. Fresh goat's milk, cheese and goat milk ice cream next year. Yay!

¸¸¸¸Friends¸¸¸¸
A friend is someone we turn to
when our spirits need a lift.
A friend is someone we treasure
for our friendship is a gift.
A friend is someone who fills our lives
with beauty, joy, and grace.
And makes the whole world we live in
a better and happier place.
~~Jean Kyler McManus~~

Hi! I haven't heard from you in a while. I hope all is well.
Actually, you came to mind a few days ago. I'm looking for a new homestead...further from the city...and I saw a listing for a house on Windswept Road. emoticon
Best wishes!

Hey ..good to hear from you..my chicks are doing good..I lost two of them..but that is why I always get a few extras. I think I got some of the Araconda's in my straight run..I know the pullets are all light brown..so they will proably be a mix of white...cream eggs. I had a hen once that laid a pink egg..always..I knew it was her's by the pink..sometimes brighter than others..but always pink.
We had turkeys last year..won't do that again..they got mean..so they got gone!

Did ya get any rain...this last snow was so wet & heavy ..hurrah & thanks!
we are set for more later this week! thas ok with me!

headed to bed now..my fridge..well the freezer part took a dump this AM ..had to throw a bunch of stuff out ..will get a service guy in tomorrow to look at it. Dern thing is less than 5 yrs old..wouldn't expect it to go bad so soon..but oh well.

a cuppa tea..a warm shower & a soft bed..sounds good right now!
