The 2013 Farm Catalogs have started coming in the mail.
You can spend hours browsing through them making list. There is always the practical list of the things you really need and then there is the other list, you know the one of all the things you would love to have but don't necessarily need.
The Hoegger's catalog was especially fun to look through.
Wish List of Soap Making Supplies, Cheese Making supplies, New Milk Buckets, Cream Seperator, and the list could go on and on. Now to narrow the list down and order what we really need with a few wants thrown in there.
It looks like tomorrow will be a day to take inventory of what we have and what we will need to order to make sure we have the lambing and kidding supplies we will need come April.
I think January and February can be the hardest times of the year in Michigan in regards to the weather. You have short days and it is cold.
I think the catalogs come at the perfect time so you can dream of warmer, longer days with the excitement of new lambs and kids and the other things that come with Spring.
I am also determined to make soap this year so I will be looking through and seeing what I need to make that a reality.
Who thought that getting a catalog in the mail could spark so much enthusiasm.
It must be January!
