Every Homestead needs a good clock, and ours was a gift from my father. The beautiful grandfather clock obviously operates without electricity, and provides us with happy melodies and chimes every fifteen minutes. The strange thing about the clock is most of the time one doesn't even hear the chimes - unless they listen for them. There is no better feeling than to wake up in the middle of the night and hear the clock chime two, just close your eyes and snuggle back in for four hours more sleep.
Pictures always warm up a home, and reflect the warmth in the hearts of those who dwell there.
Every homestead needs a "country style" guest room, here are a few pictures of ours.
Mocha and Chai make sure the guest room is ready at all times.
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
