Taking some time today to try and get back to blogging, My friend Vee, once stated that the longer you stay away from blogging the easier it is to stay away, I have found this to be so true! Truth is the farm and farmhouse keep us so busy, our ewes have been lambing, we have been blessed this year 35 new babies, no losses, last year we lost 8 lambs. We decided to keep them locked up during lambing, it seems to have been the right thing to do. Yesterday, Mr P decided to give them a treat and let them roam in the front yard, they were jumping and running everywhere, I love watching the lambs, play, they are like children.
I have finished taking inside Christmas decorations, down, and packing them away! When you have as many trees as I do, that takes a while, however, when it is just the two of us at Christmas I only have one, but when the family comes home we really go all out,that is because we know that they expect nothing else, and because we love them!
This is one of my favorite photos it explains one of the reasons we go all out with family, it is a time when they can totally relax and be themselves,enjoy sitting by the fire, with a hot beverage, colorful lights glowing, either conversing with us, or just taking a nap! If I had to describe "Home" in one word it would be "Refuge", the outside world can be pretty tough at times but "Home" offers us, warmth, contentment and safety!
