Christmas Stocking Swap

William took his grandson Will on a all weekend boyscout camping trip. William's son Ray and his son Wayne met them there and from everything I heard they had a great time. While they were gone I cleaned the inside of the semi, did William's laundry, raked the pens, made some soap and cleaned house. William came home today in time to trim the goats hooves, unpack and put away all the camping gear, pack his truck and head for Oregon. This has been a busy few days. One really bright spot of the weekend was meeting Deb, Russell and their daughters Abby and Sara. I had never met them in person even though they live in the area. Deb and I met in the blog neighborhood so it was really wonderful meeting her and her family in person. The girls fed the rabbits and goats carrots and visited with all the animals. We enjoyed their visit and look forward to them coming back as they want to learn to milk!!

Mommy Kitty and Baby Kitty are getting really spoiled around here. I think they are here to stay unless I find a really good home for them.
I am doing the Christmas stocking swap again this year. If you want to join the swap leave a comment. I will give everyone their partner November 3rd. The stocking can be handmade, store bought or one of your own that you have left from past Christmas'. Fill the stocking with items that you think your swap partner might enjoy. The price limit is $10.oo but you can fill it with handmade items, baked goodies,etc. You don't have to purchase items. I will try to give partners of the same country so you won't have to pay alot on shipping. You have to get your stocking mailed in time for your partner to receive it before Christmas. Hope you will join us! Last years stocking swap was lots of fun.

Oops, wanted to say you can partner me with someone from the States too, it costs just as much to send a parcel to someone here in Canada! lol Go figure! xox

Peggy, I thought you'd like to know that when my daughters came home they immediately took a bath just so that they could use the soap that you gave us!

We had a blast and are looking forward to seeing you again.

Peggy, I am trying to order soaps from the Etsy site and I am having some difficulties... do you see two orders by me? If so, can you email me at and we'll get this straightened out.

I just read about your Christmas stocking swap on PEA's blog. I would be interested but unfortunately, shipping to the US is quite expensive from Germany. Do you already have other participants frome Europe? Do NOT count me in yet, I still have to think about it!

Best wishes, Anita
