All of our Indian Runner ducks are growing up and have yet to start laying, but they keep the yard lively with all their laughs and conversations and they certainly are not afraid of a turkey, chicken or puppy! They are so entertaining!
So, I am happy to say bring on Autumn, let the leaves fall and the cool nights turn into cool days too and the softness of the sun just warms your face as the cooler breezes bring chills to your skin. Let the nights come earlier and the warmth of a glowing fire warm our hearts and our home. Bring on apple peeling and pumpkin pie making, big pots of soups and hearty stews to feed our family night after night. Let the greens turn to grays and browns and bring us those stunning leaves of reds and golds and yellows that brighten the dull sky landscape. Let the pine cones drop to offer amazing garlands and fireplace mantel decorations. I will once again drag out the jackets and sweaters and boots and another season will be upon us leading us into winter. I am ready for fall and I am excited that it's almost here!

We are very excited to have our new babies. They will be very spoiled in no time and we will be able to start working on milking the goats to start making our own cheese. I am very excited about that!

We have some adorable puppies that have finally hit 8 weeks today and are ready to look for their forever homes. However, I am so attached to these little puppies I'm finding it hard to let them go. Never before have I had trouble with finding puppies homes after breeding dachshunds for years. These little babies really stole my heart! These little puppies are a gorgeous mix from a full blood chihuahua and a Westie, they are the cutest puppies I've ever seen. Apparently, they are considered a "designer breed" called Chesties! I thought I would share how cute they are with everyone. I am going to miss them terribly when I finally give in to letting them go! :(
They love to play outdoors and will play until they pass out!

Well, it took me longer than I wanted to, but I finished my painted sofa project. I am very happy with the results. I took an old faded upholstered sofa and painted it and now it looks like a brand new sofa. It's pet smell proof and will wipe clean easily. I can't stop staring at it, I just am amazed how different it looks.
