Lucky us!

We have a new tenant here at Dream Come True Farm. In my herb garden I have a little pond with a solar powered pump which attracts many a frog. Well, for the past few days I have seen one in particular coming in and out of these boots. Today he posed for me so I could photograph him. He has moved into the boot which is filled with moss so its the perfect palace for him to live in. I hope he stays. Maybe he'll tell his friends about the one that's available next door to him? Or maybe he will take a wife, or a husband? I guess I will just have to watch. Im glad he's here.

Strawberries, strawberries, strawberries! mmmm

Today Mike is off from work so we went outside to pick strawberries which grow along side the farm shop on the hillside. We struck gold! A few had little tiny bites out of them, Im not sure if it was birds or one of the many chipmonks that live here in the stownwalls. Whoever it was we don't mind sharring as long as they leave us some. So Im going to sit and enjoy a bowl before my day begins.

New fibers!

Well, Im back to spinning. I have been a bit lazy lately. Kind of on vacation. Mike was off for a week and had a few day adventures and a camping trip! Now some of the newly shorn fibers have arrived from the mill to be spun and I can't wait to get started. i just love the natural colors of the these alpacas. I also purchased some beautiful dyed sheep roving at the CT Sheep and Wool Festival that needs spinning. So there will be more yarns added to the all ready full shop and some to be listed on Etsy. So check back for the yarn updates. Im also waiting on a new batch of almond and honey soap to cure!
