• Sunday, November 16, 2008 - New respect for the pioneers....
It's around 40 degrees out, and I hung a load of laundry. The dryer is broken, and I keep saying I need to buy a new one, but can't make myself spend the money just yet. Especially since our farm seems to be the windiest place on earth. A couple times I have hung out laundry, and by the time I got done, the stuff I hung first is dry. No electricity...the wind is FREE!!! See, thats when it gets hard to buy that new dryer.
We got two new hens, and some roosters, and are now getting at least 1 egg a day. Not bad for winter, and considering one of the hens is too young to lay yet. The goats are great, we had a dusting of snow this morning, and they really seemed to enjoy being out in it.
The big news is....we got a St. Bernard. King Bernie Bernard to be exact. He is the sweetest dog I have ever met. He came from a shelter, where they said he had been roaming some neighborhood for the last year. He is loving it here in our warm cozy farmhouse.
