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.

1.1.11--Happy New Year!

It's a cold one here today on the little farm, but the sun is shinning. The birds are mobbing the feeders and the cats are worn out with watching. I've got black eyed peas with ham simmering on the wood stove (as well as a piece of chocolate chip bread warming for a snack) and plan to enjoy them later with some cornbread. It's just a quiet day here and am doing a few things I enjoy along with the regular chores. I hope to make a felted scarf here in a bit--that will be my creative project to start the year off right. Hopefully I can get a few posts worked up--I've got lots of stories!;-) From Christmas treats for all the critters to the trauma of taking six cats to the vet at once for shots.

Hope you have a blessed New Year, filled with kindnesses to you and from you, joy in the simplest of things and peace for you and all of yours!

Happy New Year, Tammy! I took three cats to the vets once and it was an experience I'll not repeat. It was Eddie and his sisters but they'd been in separate houses and not seen each other for a month or so and they'd totally forgotten they were related. Oh, the growling and hissing...I can still hear it.

Cats and vets, what a joy! May you have a very Happy New Year, and have the joy of many loving animals around you.

Six cats to the vet, at once?!
The year HAS to get better than THAT!

Your pots are so pretty and so are the cats. It is all a picture of tranquillity. I feel for you with the cat vet journey! I took my Patch on Friday, just one and that was traumatic. I always feel such a heel even knowing it's for her own good.

Vicki, I can imagine that Eddie and his family are an opinionated bunch anyway! ;-)
