I was finishing up the last touches on a sweater/cardigan that I was making for Ronnie for Christmas when I started to think how our Christmas have changed since we started living the homesteading life.  Oh yes it has changed quite drastically and I like the change.

My sister-in-law looked at me and said "Why did you start doing it?"

It was the day after Thanksgiving, at my husband's family get together, that my  sister-in-law  handed me an article entitled "Food for thought: Natural not always better" written by John Stossel.

You know when you are growing up you hear so many little sayings and you never really question where they come from.  That is, until you own a goat, then you don't have to question where the saying comes from but you know where it came from.

You know that feeling you get when your kid is graduating and part of you is ready to see them go and the other part is sad because it's "your baby"?  Well, that's the way it is when it is time for the little goatlies to go to their new homes.
