  Beautiful weather
After weeks of rain in December, we're drying out in January. It's feeling like Spring instead of Winter.

  Gardening season is approaching.
Way down here in southeast Texas, our temps stay pretty mild and we're able to start planting and transplanting in mid Feb. There is a risk of one more freeze but it's worth the risk to get started.

  Cold and rainy
With today being very cold (at least cold for our area) and rainy, I bet the goats will have babies today. Ugh.

  Days mixed up
With the holidays, I got my days all mixed up. I thought it was Sunday two days ago. Today, being Sunday, I'm ready for the week to start. I still can't believe it's a new year.

  Time for the lights to come down
As much as I love the Christmas season, I am so ready to get back to normal. I like leaving lights and decorations up because we always have a NYE bon fire party. So, it's two days after the party. It's now time to take it all down.

  Happy New Year!
Wow! It's 2015. I know it's so cliche' to say but man, time goes by fast. It's like yesterday that we were prepping for Y2K. hee hee. All that prepping then certainly set the stage for the beginnings of some great self-sustaining life skills.

Great pic! This reminds me I need to get back to Mary Jane's farm - I've missed all the farm girls there!

  Does he walk on a dog leash? Our son's show pig did until she got 300 pounds and wanted to go where she wanted to go.

  Welcome Back! Love the picture of the pig in your truck :-) You have many of the same interests as myself. We also raise some of our own food to can/freeze/dehydrate. And harvested our first chickens recently for the freezer.

  Big Texas Hey Y'all!
It's good to be back to the forum. I've been away for some time due to caring for my ailing mom. I was away so long that my profile was inactive. So, now I hope to visit often and see what's going on with all y'all.
