We just returned from our one week up in the U.P. I read 3 and 1/2 books and knitted socks. Needless to say it was so relaxing I am having a hard time getting back to reality. I think that as of today I have done about 25 loads of laundry! I hope to get more vacation pictures posted, but I have to put these up. The first one is about 9 years ago, the second is last week. Same place, same family. I want to cry. Where does the time go?

We have tried for a year and a half to breed our heritage breed Royal Palm turkeys, with no luck. We tried both the incubator the last two summers and letting our 3 hens just sit on the eggs, but nothing seemed to produce any results. We made the decision a couple of weeks ago that this probably was going to be the last summer and the turkeys would find a place on our Thanksgiving and Christmas table this year!
Imagine my surprise tonight when I was working out in the yard and glanced in to check on the turkeys and there was a teeny-tiny new one running around in the coop!
Mama is extremely protective and chased after me when I went in to check him out.

Yes, my life has become so interesting that I can get a blog post out of t.p. I just ordered 2 commercial sized t.p. dispensers for our bathroom...and I am excited! Think about this though, how many times a week do you have to change the roll? Here with our big family it is a lot! I think I may have just found the answer to true domestic happiness. I let you know how it goes.
