New lamb!











One of our Ewes had a lamb on Tuesday. Anna went out to feed the sheep and noticed her lying on the ground. We didn't really know she was even pregnant!
In lieu of gifts the proud mother requests alfalfa hay and sweet grain.

New chicks



One of our hens has been sitting on 4 eggs for 24 days. A yellow chick hatched yesterday and a black one hatched today! They are so cute!

Hammered Dulcimer










I recently bought this hammered dulcimer off of a listing I saw on Craigslist. It is a Masterworks 11/12 model. I don't remember the first time I wanted to learn to play this instrument, because I had never seen one before! I have seen people who play them on It has been fun figuring out the scales and playing a few tunes.

Bunny wall art

Elizabeth has been making these bunny wall hangings recently. She wants to sell them at the Farmers market booth we have during the Summer. It seems somebody is always making something around our house!
