Everything on the farm is pretty good. I am trying to sell my 13 ram lambs I have available. I have contacted our butcher, posted on craigslist, as well as contacted our customers, so hopefully I will be able to sell them pretty quick. I did not take the ram lambs out in time, so at least some of my ewes were bred early. So hopefully they do not lamb in three feet of snow or something. But when it comes to farming, you never know what might happen. We don't have any chickens but the laying hens right now. We have got a lot of replacement hens now, so the total of the flock is about 53 chickens. Hopefully we will have lots of eggs to sell at the market this summer. Eggs seem to sell like crazy. It seems like their was an egg shortage at the markets last year, probably due to the hot summer. We'll see how it all pans out this year.
Things are going relatively slow right now, but we are trying to enjoy it while it lasts, as soon there will be lots going on. I am looking forward to the grass growing again. Even buying my hay in round bales is expensive. Round bales tend to be cheaper then square bales since they are easier t handle (just spike them with a tractor and move it). Hopefully I will do a better job planning my grazing this year and have more stockpile available to graze in the winter.
Mary's birthday is tomorrow. She will be turning 5. It hard to believe she is turning five already. It just goes to show how time flies.
Our family has had quite a bit of car trouble recently. Papa's truck had stoped running a while back. He was able to sell it for a relatively low price. He started to use our old van, but then it stoped working (even after taking it to the dealership to get several hundred dollars worth of repairs done on it only a few weeks before). After several challenges to find a decent vehicle within his price range, he finally found a nice little Subaru Forrester. It works great, so we think it should be good.
I have been getting into fingerpicking on the guitar recently. For non-guitar players reading this, fingerpicking is just that, picking the guitar strings with your fingers instead of a plectrum. This allows you to do more things at one time, such as playing a low note and high note at the same time. I thought I would give you a recording of me playing one of my favorite hymns. I hope you like it. If you do, I would love to take your requests for another song to do. Well, here it is!
For all of you Praise and Worship/CCM fans out there, especially those who play guitar, this is a hilarious video on the subject.
Well I reckon that is all I have for today. I like comments, as it helps me to know someone is reading. So feel free to leave one.
Thanks for reading!
