This blog is a journal of the simple living on a small 2 and a half acre farm. The ups and downs. The good and the not so good. Adventures of Hidden Haven animals and some of my own. The sharing of our frugal, hardworking, attempt to be as self sufficient as possible. Please stop by often as we love company!
A rainy cool day with lots of work done with my soap business. Now that night is here, the rain has stopped and the sky is filled with stars. I made the rounds and all the animals are snuggled down for the night. The outside lights are on to make checking on the goats during the night easier. The inside lights are off and the oil lamps are lit. Its so nice and cozy sitting and reading by the light of the oil lamps. There is a nice fire in the stove and the tea kettle is resting on top waiting for me to make a cup of hot tea. The house is nice and quiet as the TV has been turned off all day. My goal is to wean myself from TV. I use to have it on all day just for company as noise in the background. Today I got more done as the TV didn't distract me. Tonight I am going to start reading on the books I have had forever . So a nice quiet night is a blessing to me. Of course if one of the girls decided to go into labor and deliver a new doeling that would be an even bigger blessing!
