Spring and New Life
Spring was always a new beginning for the farm. It was usually when I tried to time my angora bunnies to be born, although not always successful because of the Michigan weather(It's snowing here today). New chicks also became part of our spring agenda. Well, as you can see our first batch of bunnies was successful and next week I plan on heading down to the feed store to pick up 4 or 5...or 6 chicks for egg layers. We brought 5 hens with us to the lake and I'm now down to three thanks to critters getting into them.

I have been working on some special orders lately that I finally finished after months of working on spinning and an epic yarn dyeing fail I finally got both hats complete and shipped. I made the first one for a dear friend of mine and a few weeks later she contacted me complaining that she couldn't keep her husband away from it and would I please make one as a surprise for him. They both turned out beautiful and were much loved by both of them.
I talked to our neighbor here at the lake house and she is talking about bringing her two little goats from the farm where she keeps them to her little lake house yard. I was giddy. I might have scared her a bit with how much. But it just helped me realize that if you can figure out how to grow where God has planted you, you don't have to give up those things that make you happy!
