More photos below. . .
(This was the first one.)
© FarmgirlFare.com, where nobody around here likes getting knocked down by a sneezing and snuffling cold (least of all me), but snuggling up under a heavy vintage quilt (the second one), rereading a favorite novel by a dear friend, slurping homemade chicken soup, munching on a forgotten hunk of mocha brownies I found buried in the freezer, sipping from endless steaming mugs of herbal throat tea with honey, and listening to the gentle sounds of rain tapping on the tin roof definitely all help.
So does spending much of our time in the new house (new photos hopefully soon!). Yep, we really are getting moved in, though I'm still blogging from my little office in The Shack. I'm going to miss how much louder (and to me, cozier) the rain sounds when there's no insulation between you and the tin roof (who knew?), but I definitely won't miss the rain that's falling through a large scary hole in my office ceiling and plunking into a plastic red dishtub next to my chair.
P.S. The donkeys are only locked in that corral at treat time to keep the sheep from launching an attack.
P.P.S. Since I've already almost polished off the brownies (it was a small hunk), I'm baking up a batch of my favorite whole wheat chocolate chip raisin cookies (in the new kitchen!) because chocolate cures everything, right?
