This site is about my life as a farmgirl, wife, mother and grandmother. We have a beautiful granddaughter and the cutest grandson. We own two farms in Craig County Virginia, leasing one and raising beef cattle on the other.
It was 14* at 6:30 this morning and has only reached 24* with the sun out now. The wind is horrid and hubby is not allowing me out of the house! I’m not complaining because the arctic air does not sit well with my lungs!
I’ve been cleaning and working in my kitchen all day and looking at some quilt patterns.
I’m also planning to finish two quilts that have been on hold for years and they’ll be at the top of my list.
Winter days like today are perfect for quilting and I don’t feel guilty for playing indoors instead of working outdoors.
I promised a pictorial today of the what kept me busy during our snow event yesterday and here it is.
The rest of the day was keeping the stove filled and the wood rack filled as well.
The snow event (notice I didn’t call it a storm) left us with one inch of snow and it got packed down during the night with sleet and rain making for a crusty top. The chickens wanted nothing to do with it so we left them in the coop and the ducks could have left their coop but decided to stick close to a spot with no snow in it! Recipes for the chicken salad, cake, bread, cobbler and pork loin marinade will be posted on my cooking page soon.
This is the blog for our little farm in Skagit county. Here we have Shetland sheep and Nigerian Dwarf goats. In addition we have donkeys, cattle, pigs, chickens, geese, and peafowl. The blog describes the weekly activities here.
