Little Things


This evening's post is a random list of little things going on here this week.


1. We got a surprise a few days ago when our goat Feta gave birth to twins: Fontina and Manchego.  After losing two of our older goats in the past month, these babies were such a pleasant surprise.


2. We've been picking up our grandson and hanging with him one day each week.  He is definitely a bright spot in our gray winter days.


3. We had more ice and snow here this week, which gave the kiddos another 2 hr. delay.  As you can see, the snow hit the upper mountain ridges while the valleys got the ice.


4. I realize I'm coming late to the game here, but my husband got a trial Amazon Prime membership, which means Downton Abbey is available to us for free.  Oh my gosh, I can't believe we went all these years without watching this.  It is now the favorite evening drama show of every big person in this house.


5. After coughs, fevers, and sore throats last week, we have now moved on to a stomach virus.  So far two of our little ones have been camped out on the loveseat next to "the Bucket."  Yuck.


6. This actually feels like a big thing because the carpenters finished our kitchen renovation yesterday!  I'll post no more pictures of this though until the new Amish-made corner hutch has been delivered, and I've put everything back together again.  But I am so happy with this fresh, bright room.

7. I'm sure you noticed that my blog has a slightly different look.  I wanted to make more room for the pictures, and there will be plenty more of those coming next week!  I hope this change is easier for you readers to view and not quite as "busy."  I'd love to hear what you think.

  2. I like the new layout and color changes here. The coral and blue is much easier on my eyes. :)
    Your kitchen is just an amazing renovation. It's such a big room and now it appears very airy &
    fresh. I can't wait to see the Amish made hutch. We have a few Amish made pieces that are lifetime treasures. I'm not sure where you are but I'm not that far from Whispering Pines in Spring, PA.
    Those Goats are adorable. And the names? Cheezy. They look to be a good size for newborns.
    And your grandson has great cheeks. He's so cute.
    Enjoy your day!

    1. Thank you, Monica. I enjoy getting feedback from my readers. We are in the midst of Amish country here too---black top, yellow top, and white top. If you're familiar with the Amish, you know that's how we refer to the different sects. These goat kids were a good size, and they're from a fairly small doe. It's always such a relief when they're born bigger, especially in the winter time. This is our sixth year of having goat kids born on the farm, and we're starting to run out of cheese names. We're now moving onto lesser-known foreign cheeses that are harder to pronounce. Many of them will end up with nicknames, I'm sure. Have a good weekend.
