Five Facts Friday - 02/22/2013


1.  I won one of the door prizes for the Boost My Blog Party hosted by Nancy and Lisa last week! YAY!! This sweet, handmade heart tag is waaay too nice to go on our big ol' outside dog Buddy so I put it on my keychain where I can enjoy it. Thanks ladies for hosting the party, I discovered a LOT of wonderful new blogs to follow and picked up some wonderful new Followers too! :)

2.  I won some other lovely prizes on recent blog giveaways that I need to mention...some heirloom tomato seeds from Kateri, two lovely bars of goat milk soap from Millie, a beautiful metal sculpture cross to hang from Michelle and some handmade soap from Michaele. (Edited to add) AND a beautiful colored pencil drawing from TexWisGirl of a sweet little nuthatch! I also received an unexpected Christmas package from Kristina, a Pay-It-Forward package from Susan and a handpainted tile from Marie. Thank you all and I'm sorry I'm so late in acknowledging some of you. Blogging buddies are the BEST!! :)

3.  It has snowed three times in the last two weeks here! The storm this past Wednesday gave us almost six inches of snow, the most we have seen in the eight years we have lived here. The moisture is always welcome!

4.  Our cat, Ruby, snores. Sometimes so loudly that I can hear her in the other room! ;)

5.  I'm still getting almost three quarts of milk a day from my goat. It will be two years at the end of March since she kidded. I guess I'll just keep milking her until she starts to dry up! I hate buying milk from the store.

Marie said...

Love your 5 Facts! Boy, you were one lucky gal getting so many things from fellow bloggers recently. And the snow...I knew it had snowed there more than once, but you really have gotten a LOT! So awesome! The cat snoring is really funny, too.

Congrats on your winnings. My parents winter in Apache Junction, AZ say there were even some snow flakes there! It seems like it has been unusually cold there this winter.

Sharon said...

I love that your goat is still giving milk after two years. Maybe a goat should be next on my homestead list?

A Quiet Corner said...

Congrats on all your treasures! Next week I'll put mine to good use!...:)JP

Goodness, you need to go to Vegas because it seems you are on a lucky streak right now! That's a lot of prizes. I love blogging buddies :)

Crazy that you've gotten a lot of snow lately! Like you said, I guess moisture is always welcome :)

That's a lot of goat milk! I didn't know you could milk them for that long. Good to know!

Lin said...

My cat snores too! What is with that???! Like the husband isn't bad enough?? Criminy.

Heather said...

Wow you have gotten some amazing goodies recently! It keeps snowing here as well...but since I live in Maine I guess I should expect it :-)

I would love a goat...or two! I used to raise pygmy goats for 4-H when I was younger. Of course now I don't really do dairy (unfortunately since I seriously love cheese!). Do you mainly just drink the milk? Or do you make other things like cheese? Would love to learn more!

Michelle said...

I enjoyed your 5 fact Friday. My cat doesn't snore,but she loves to purr "LOUDLY" in my ear while I am trying to sleep.

Sandy said...

You have scored some great stuff from fellow bloggers lately it seems! Good for you. I was wondering how much snow we got down there....6"...WOW!!
