A good way to start off the New Year with a good cuppa Lyons tea.


The pellet stove got cleaned and its going and the wood stove is going..  It’s a cold day with colder temps, below zero on Friday.  We are expecting 12-18 inches of snow over the next 36 hours.  Lots of snow to get rid of.  The bird feeders are full and they are stocking up and the sheep must feel the storm coming as they are eating more hay.


 We are ready for it and tomorrow when the winds pick up I will close them in the barn.  With the  high winds during the storm I don’t need a barn full of snow!


Chris left today with Lilly Pad,  and we started a new website before he left, it won’t be up and running till February when he comes up again.  It will be called Whispering Pines Farm Old Thyme Shope, where I be selling all my products online.  I am working on some primitive things and of course the old stand bys, soap, wool and salve.   This winter I will be making primitive signs to sell too.  I am very excited about this, My old website was so difficult, most times I couldn’t even get on it to make changes.  A new adventure for 2014.

This old house

The masonry people left their sta ging up and it causes ice problems.  I had asked them to take it down but no luck so far.   Now with the snow I am very concerned.  I will give them another call tomorrow and let them know that at least the wood  planks should be removed.

Seed catalogs are coming in fast and furious, I really don’t need to buy too many seeds this year, what I am looking for is  pasture seeds to improve the land in back and for the chicken area.  I am also going to order some oat straw and plant an area of that for chicken nests.

Hope you have a wonderful day and many thanks for reading my blog.    Carole
