Don't forget to leave a comment on the post below for my give away. Today William and I have been married a great big 6 years! In some ways it seems like less and other ways it seems like we have been married forever. He will be home tonight so we are grilling steaks and I am hoping we will be able to listen to the rain on the tin roof of the porch if the thunder I hear is a indication. To celebrate our anniversary and his birthday (the 30th)William bought a motorcycle. He isn't home very much now so imagine his bike won't get many miles on it. He is giving me money to go shopping but I am going to enjoy having all day tomorrow by myself. He and the couple who help us are going to pick up the bike and I will be all alone here to just relax and enjoy the day. That will be the best present! I went to my favorite thriftstore today and had my buggy loaded with items (will take pictures later and add). I had several vintage children books from 1940. Fairy Tales, Bedtime Stories, and even some Trixie Belden. Had several mystery books for me, some vintage glass hens on a nest that I collect. Some pots and bowls for my soap shop, some breakfast bowls, couple of serving spoons, a wreath and a picnic basket. When I got up to pay, Donna the manager told me Happy Anniversary and wouldn't let me pay for anything! So with the money I saved I just had to stop by TJ Max and pick up a few things.

I have let the chickens, ducks and guineas out to roam around the yard. The geese refuse to come out. When I went in the pen and herded them out they made such a racket and turned right around and went back in the pen. Guess they don't like freedom. Fred, the turkey is now in the peacock pen. I have a young mate for him and didn't want the chickens and roosters scaring her. She is still too young but Fred is spreading his feathers and strutting his stuff. Since his last mate was Ginger I am going to name this one Ethel. They seem to like being in the pen with the peacock and my polish topper hens.

I really must do something with Dan and Robyn. They are getting all of Diva and Sammi's milk and not leaving me any! I was trying to milk Diva and Dan was reaching through trying to nurse her. They are so tall now that they have to lay on their tummies to nurse. They are as tall as Sammi ! I am going to start locking them in their stall at night so they can't get to the girls and then let them have the milk all day after I get the morning milking.

Hope each of you have a blessed weekend!

Well Happy Anniversary! You too spend so much time apart, whenever you are together you must feel like newlyweds!

You had me going for a moment when you wrote what I thought meant William was only 30 years old. That would explain the motorcycle!

Have a lovely weekend.

PS. Count me in on your draw. it would be nice to win something once before I die. Will your goat soap wash of the smell of pigs and cows?

Peggy, I just wanted to stop by and say hello, it's been awhile since I've been by. Boy how your little family has grown, they are all so sweet! I've enjoyed the visit :)

Happy Anniversary, Peggy (and William too) - what kind of bike did he buy? with the money he gives you, you could always buy yourself a helmet and a Harley D. leather jacket and become a pillion just like me..
I can't believe how big the boys are getting, it will be so sad when you have to sell them, specially Robyn :(
