Years ago I came home from work and my bride was
repainting the family room
It was not the "RIGHT WHITE"
Now in our bedroom she is painting the trim and when I peek in she says
"I don't think it's the RIGHT WHITE"
 I panicked with only a little bit of trim painted
Our bedroom is about 20 by 20 so that would be tons of repainting the baseboard and trim all around the ceiling, window, cupboard all our best interest

I begged her to let's go to the store and find the RIGHT WHITE
with a new shower curtain in the bathroom it was not the
with the theme of the year of finishing projects I did finish the trim and bead board in the bathroom
My bride painted it the RIGHT WHITE
What I have learned
When you decorate it's important that the colors are right
It's important you love the color ...because...well
I won't tell you how long ago it's been since I came home 
to the right white in the family room
I understand the "RIGHT WHITE"
R----I----G----H----T !  ?

Wow, it's almost February ~ where did January go?

Farmer Dave blogged about projects

I never had a "New Year Resolution"

Maybe I do this year ~ small batches ~that's what's on my mind

Now we are both retired ~ empty nesters ~ life is different

Everything we've done ~ large batches

When we raised sheep ~ it was large ~ large batches
Two breeds ~ two pastures ~ keeping rams where they belong

I still am cooking in large batches
You know ~ when all the kids were home ~ their friends
Our mother's at the table  ~ but now small batches are ok
I love to bake in large batches ~
I don't know if I could in small batches ~ I could try

Moving my ggg grandfather's house ~ that was a LARGE batch

We've been working on a new website
We will have two on-line stores (small batches?)
One will be First Friday's
So I am telling myself small batches
Not like the eBay days when we put large batches on for sale
Small batches are ok
Maybe some months just a few ~ maybe more

We are thinking of getting sheep again ~ we both miss them
We are thinking what breed ~ we loved both our breeds
Suffolk ~ Naturals
Small batches Audrey ~ SMALL BATCHES 

Oh and by the way the website is finally here
We are hoping you like it
We love to share our country life ~ in large batches!

                        Love, Audrey Ann
