After terrible lighting storms off and on all night today has been very nice. I milked Miss Diva early and she didn't even stomp her foot at me. Fed all the animals and then headed on a 2 hr drive to Lexington (NC). Picked up my antique wash stand that I am going to use for a sink in my bathroom with a vessel bowl. I picked up an old wooden cabinet with a thick butcher block top that I am going to be putting into my kitchen. Brought them back so Wayne my wonderful handyman can get them sanded and stuff so they will be ready to go in the house. After he finishes painting the outside he will be helping me rip out my kitchen and bath and redo them both. Sharon and I had lunch and did a little thrift storing before I headed back home. You would have thought I had been gone a week for all the animals were about to faint from hunger! I went from the truck straight to feeding these poor neglected creatures before I even went in the house. They all have full bellies and are relaxing while I get things done inside. I found out after dealing with all the traffic that I like my homestead. I like not having to leave it every day for a job. I like that I have sweet animals and nice gardens and good neighbors. If I never had to leave the homestead again I would be happy. God really gave me a special blessing when he brought me here. Hope your blessings are special too!
