January Thaw

I had to come take a break from being outside. I got too hot. In January! This cannot be right. We are supposed to hit 70 some odd today. Just a month ago we were snowed in and today I am washing fleeces, digging in the garden, and sweating.  Amazing.

Now for the fun big news. We got a new puppy for the farm! She is a Great Pyrenees, Collie, Akbash mix. We made a crazy road trip to go get her and she is the runt.  She is super mellow and already taking her job very seriously. She is only 9 weeks old but she is still telling the neighborhood coyote pack that she is here and this is her place now. We named her Luna, as in moon. She is white like the Pyrenees and Akbash and seems to have the shorter hair. Time will tell for sure on that.

Isn’t she cute? Now to figure out how we feed a dog that will be 100+ pounds. You can help by checking out the Sponsor a Critter page.

Now back to working outside while the weather holds. We know it certainly won’t hold for long. February and March are often our worst weather months.

About littlehawkyarns

I'm a gardener that is trying to provide good food for my family to enjoy. I have two children, two dogs, a husband, four chickens, and four cats. In addition gardening I enjoy handwork such as knitting, crochet, and sewing. I'm in the process of trying to learn tatting and embroidery as well. I am soon adding more critters to the collection since we just got property and I spin yarn.
