Hay!

Finding a good source of hay is a huge weight off my mind.  It's one of those things that has been difficult and troublesome in  past years- either we got stuck trying to get out of the other farmer's driveway, or the hay was expensive or not good quality, or just a really far drive, or I call people and they don't call me back.   It was not very smart on my part to keep putting it off because of my fears of it being difficult, however, I did put it off until the situation was critical, as in "We need hay in two days".

But thanks to Craig's List, I found someone selling hay just 13 miles from home, and though they couldn't deliver, I went and picked up 11 bales in my new minivan, and then went back again for another 11 bales.  There is plenty more if I need it.  It wasn't snowing, or raining, we didn't get the car stuck, it was good hay at a super good price, and my older kid helped me. The van is a complete mess and my back is hurting, but the sheep are happy.

    1. My back is doing ok, but it took me over three hours of vacuuming with the shop vac to get the hay out of the car! Next time, more tarps!

I have been working really hard to get the kitchen finished this week.  You know that kitchen project we started last summer and then it sat...
