New piggy pictures and my drysink redo :)

hmm, what can we find in here?
What are you looking at?
Meet Petunia and Petals....oops, just discovered it's Porky, lol :D

Good morning!! The sun is shining, it's a little cool today, fall is definitley on it's way. Before we know it, it will be time to start up the woodstove to stay cozy warm at night. Which reminds me that I need to cleanup the woodstove room and paint it before we start using the woodstove. So much to do and not enough time! Today is the first day this week that I am on my own, My daughter Alexis was sick on Monday with a sore throat and swollen glands, and it wasn't Kaedyn's day to go to school, than Tuesday Rhys was home sick, than yesterday Alexis mussed the bus and I had a flat tire and couldn't drive her school, so I had 3 kids home...and I got nothing done, lol. Today, I don't know what I am going to do, putter around and clean and maybe try some crafting, or just sit outside and enjoy the animals and sunshine :) As you can see, my husband completed the pigpen last night so we tested it out this morning and the piggies love it! They are already trying to dig in the dirt around where the post were put in, lol, so I have to keep a close eye on them. I need to get myself a pair of farmers coveralls because every time I go in to feed them, they come running at me and get me with their dirty noses and my clothes don't look so great, lol. I love having the pigs, they are like dogs, coming up for a pet and following me wherever I go in the pen. I don't know how it will be when they get up to 250 lbs though, it could be interesting to say the least. Well, I thought I would pop in and say hello and hope you are having a lovely Thursday! I will be on later tonight when it's quiet to check in on everyone!

Hugs, Trish


  1. Love your drysink redo Trish - it came out great! Can't go wrong with black! And those piggies are so sweet - could it be that they've already grown since you showed us pictures? Nah...can't be! They look so happy in their new "digs." Yea for hubby! Sorry about the sick kids - hope you don't catch it!! Happy Thursday! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  2. Hi Robin, yes they have grown since last pics! They were 40 lbs when we got them almost 2 weeks ago and now they are probably just over 50 lbs. They are really strong too, lol. Thanks for the sweet comment on my drysink, my hubby actually agreed with me on the color black :) Have a wonderful night!!

  3. Beautiful!!! The dry sink I mean;) I just love black. All decorated for fall and all. Good job. -Steph- oh ya, cute piggies too.

  4. Your drysink is beautiful! I love the black and your decor!! Those little piggies are soooo cute!! Have a great day! Hugs, Lecia
