I've started writing about my new status as a woman homesteader going it alone. I just posted today about their encounter with an old housemate - Thumper. My little flock will be a routine topic and bring me so much joy on a daily basis. If you'd like to stop by and visit, please leave comments and let me know you stopped by. I've met some of my favorite friends from blogging and forums like this one. You can find me at http://angelaupnorth.blogspot.com P.S. My 6 girls are giving me 6 eggs per day now as temperatures in Beaver River Valley plummet to -11 this February 3rd morning. So glad I caught on to what they needed in this bitter Minnesota winter.
