Like a walk through the country side living on a small farm is full of daily surprises, sometimes wonderful and amazing, and other times puzzling and sad. I hope you will walk with me as I live out my dream of living on this tiny farm. You will come to know the dogs, cats, Shetland sheep and chickens that make up this farm and what goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Come and join the journey with me.

...and I am terribly proud of her and all that she has accomplished over the last few years. Check out this link where she was interviewed by the local T.V. station for her efforts to live frugally. It takes a moment to load, but is a very interesting interview.

We often benefit from her frugal-ousity and a few weeks back she handed me a sack with several good brands of toothpaste, shampoo etc. I was very tickled! At Christmas this past year, she gave everyone stockings, well, stuffed, with all kinds of sample products (good stuff too!!) she had gotten over the year. It was incredibly fun to rummage through it. I also got to try out samples of several products I had been interested in.

Here is a big, and well earned CONGRATS to you Tessa!
(I will likely be an absentee blogger for awhile, so please bear with me. My Mom just had open heart surgery and we are all concerned with being with her. Things have gone pretty well so far, but she has a rough road in front of her for awhile. Please keep her in your prayers.)

Don't forget to take care of yourself while you're caring for your mom. Let your animals refresh your spirit when you need a boost.
