The good Lord blessed us with a gloriously beautiful day today and I just wanted to take the time and stop to thank him. I am so thankful that amidst all of the cold and snow God decided to remind me of what the days to come are going to be like. It is like that in life at times also. Sometimes just like winter we feel like the hard times are never going to end and then spring starts to show it's pretty head or the bad time we are struggling through finally shows a glimmer of hope and we feel rejuvenated. Remember dear friends that God is always with us in the good times and the bad, the winter and the spring and he loves us and will never forsake us.

Blessings to all!!

Stuck insede

I would like to say that I have been busy as a bee the last 2 weeks but that would be a lie. I have been quite the opposite. I have been sitting on the couch most of the time. And just like the little goat in the picture above I felt stuck inside. We have been getting one snowstorm after another and I am starting to feel like winter will never end. I know that God is in control and we have to go through each season but I have to admit I am getting a little impatient. Another reason I have been stuck inside is because I had surgery on my right hand for carpal tunnel. This was my first surgery ever and I did not realize how tired I would be and how hard it would be to do everything one handed, especially with my left hand. Thankfully I got my brace removed yesterday and I have a little more freedom with my hand. In 2 weeks I will be getting my left hand operated on but I am thankful to God that I have 2 weeks of being able to do a little bit more, like taking a shower without having to cover my lower arm with plastic and duct tape in order to keep it dry. I still cannot lift anything with that hand but it is nice that it is not in that heavy brace.

The baby goats are doing wonderful. We lost one so we are down to 10 now and they are all healthy and happy. It was very hard on me losing the one, I love them so much and he was such a sweetheart but sometimes that is life on a farm and we have to accept it even though it was heartbreaking. The little one in the lower picture my daughter has become very attached to and she named her Turtle. My daughter can go out in the pen and call her by name, it is really cute. All of the babies will be for sale in a few weeks but we will enjoy them and spoil them while they are here.

And last of all but definitely not least my husband bought me this Excalibur dehydrator for my Christmas/birthday present. I was so excited!! I made banana chips in it and I am looking forward to being able to use it alot more after I have 2 good hands.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Blessings and hugs to all!!

Happenings on the farm

One of the reasons I have not been posting lately is pictured above. I had carpul tunnel surgery on my right wrist and it is hard to type one handed but I have missed sharing with everyone and I have some wonderful things to share with you so I just had to take the time to type a post even if I have to do it one handed. We have had some hard times here on the farm. First my daughter got sick with mono, I felt so bad for her. She felt so awful but thankfully she is feeling better now and being a big help to me while I am recovering. After my daughter was better my grandma got sick and ended up in the hospital for a couple days and I spent most of my time there while my dear husband had to fend for himself. Thankfully it ended up not being serious. And now I have a brace on my right hand for a few weeks and after it heals I will be getting one on my left and I am thankful to God for giving my doctor the wisdom to fix my hand.

On a happy note before I got my surgery I was working on making these beautiful hats. Aren't they cute? They are also very warm and comfy.

And on an even happier note the picture below shows one of the best and cutest things that has happened here on the farm.

Hugs and blessings to all!!
