We enjoyed a few sunny days intermixed with snow storms and below zero temperatures.
Valentine's Day was fun; I got President’s Day off and only had to travel to Lincoln once.
We got some big projects either finished or started at the farm and still got to enjoy some of those lazier cold days when we couldn’t work outside.
Seedlings are starting to sprout indoors and I am sure if I looked, I could see the same outdoors as well. It was a very good month.
As for March - there are only a few days left before the drawing for the free bars of Goat’s Milk Soap – so if you haven’t entered be sure to do so.
I was quite flattered to see that Catherine Friend, the author of a book I just love called Hit By A Farm, who also has the blog Farm Tales, stopped by my blog and entered the drawing.
Thank you very much for all of your entries and nice comments. I wish I could send everyone a bar of soap. I truly do.
We are anxiously awaiting the Madison County Bird and Animal Auction coming up this Sunday. I just love this auction and have bought and/or sold every year since we have been in Nebraska. Just to give you an idea of what is available; here is a list of the pre-consignments:
Items called in early include:
This is just a teaser list, as it is only a small fraction of what is actually sold on sale date. It really takes a lot of will power on my part not to buy all I want to. Believe me, I have been there. The worst thing I can do is come with a horse trailer. This year I am only bringing a truck with no topper in effort to prevent myself from hauling home any hoof stock larger than can fit in a large dog carrier. I don’t have a husband telling me “no” and I have myself and my kids telling me “yes” and this can lead to excess in a hurry!
Well, in the beginning of this post I mentioned only having to go to Lincoln once this month and guess what - it's today. So - see you all when I get back.
