A Good Weekend

This past Saturday I turned 43....  No celebrations or parties~ just a nice quiet day at home,  which for me is a perfect way to spend any day. 
I did splurge on a few things for myself.....  Hubby took off from work on Friday so we could run some errands together  and along the way I stopped at a neat little fabric/quilt shop that just opened in Knoxville.

And the warmer afternoon temperatures mean you will find the sheep enjoying the shade.

Although occasionally they wander outside to have their picture taken....

Our little garden spot produced a bounty of greens...  I fixed what I could and put the rest in the freezer. They are now too tall for us to eat, but we will cut them down and feed to the sheep and chickens.

We've already made a dent in our hay supply, and we still have a long way to go before spring.

My egg-laying girls have …
