COLD TEMPS-CATS-BARN CLEANING-YARN COMING IN A FEW MONTHS

2 01 2015

HAPPY NEW YEAR

I was happy to see the year 2014 go.  It wasn’t a particularlly good year for me.  2015 looks very promising.

BURR ITS COLD

With high temps in the 20’s and winds its mighty cold out there.  The house is staying warm with oil and lots of wood.  I have been keeping the wood stove going all night which means waking up a couple of times a night.  It’s worth it not to have frozen pipes

The cats seem to be handling the cold well.  Sammy especially finds the warmest place quickly.

BARN CLEANED

Chris and Charlie cleaned the barn today.  They did a great job.  The sheep and Elliott were anxiously waiting for it to be finished.

 Carrots, and apples were waiting for them when it was done.  Great job boys, a huge help to me.   Later this evening Chris and I wormed the sheep.  It’s an easier job where there is two people.  We also bought another loom down which I will be selling.  Lots got done this week.

WOOL AWAY

I called Green Mountain Spinnery this week and next week I will be bringing the almost 50 pounds of wool up to be spun into yarn.  Its Sally and Lucy’s wool and will be the first time that I have had their yarn spun.  Green Mountain now accepts lower wool weights so now there will be no more shipping costs.  It’s a short 45 minute drive for me and right off the highway. I love doing business locally.

I hope you have a wonderful New Year.  Many thanks for reading my blog on this cold night.   Carole.
