Harvest Thyme Homestead has grown out of a love for the simpler times of life. Its roots begin in a belief in one's self and that in time, the harvest of one's hard work will create a place called home.....with a few sheep, goats, chickens, cats, dogs, 2 miniature horses, & 3 alpacas added in for good company & fiber.

Saturday's Hang Outs
Today was my day to hang out......actually I am avoiding grading papers. But I have a very good reason because my priority was to "hang" my new ladder that my super Dad made for me. I had to do a lot of whining, complaining because he built one for my mom and not me, and then I had to point out the fact that I was his first born & the first one in the family to go to college & get a BA & MA and that I work so hard.........you know the guilt trip stuff.
But it worked and I have new ladder to decorate in my living room!!! If you bigify the picture you can see all the sheepy stuff I have hanging on it.......no dust because its new!! I love these decorative ladders.......I think they add character to a house!!!
Even the farm animals were content to hang out today.......this is a nice family picture of the J-Crew (with a LaMancha head peeking in:)
T.J. my super friendly Black Cotswold ram was content to hang out in the sun & snow! Bigify the pic to check out the curls on that fleece!!
Chickens were hanging out catching a few rays of sun in the coop!
And of course Dixie was hanging out in the fresh dump of manure because that's what dogs love to do and then they try to kiss their owners!!
My next guilt trip will be to see if Mom will make me a new heart for the garden fence I went to put up this summer........I like the weathered look!!
