Happy Valentine kitties!!

Our cat Cleo had her first litter of kittens on Valentines Day! Three all white babies, they r too cute!  It was strange, she had the first one around 5 am and then a whole 13 hours later she gave birth to 2 more, which is very unlikely for so much time to pass in a cat delivery. But luckily they all are alive and healthy so far!! The boys are thrilled and I am glad they get to experience it! 
Cleo is being such a good momma cat and she is taking great care of her babies while purring all the time, she loves to show them  off , she's a proud momma.
Country livin has been such a fulfilling experience and everyday there is something new for my family to enjoy.
Our chickens have been laying a lot of eggs, and we have been selling them to family and friends, its a neat feeling be a part of something like raising them up from tiny chicks to producing eggs!!
I'm excited to plan our garden for the spring......and raise veggies and fruit ...I guess u could say to all of this to "fruition" :)

Homemade Rosemary Mint Fabric softner

I found this recipe on pinterest today and had to share, looks easy and will go great with my homemade laundry soap!! A friend of mine said she makes her own and it works great and costs only $1.50 a batch.
Anything to keep my grocery bill down and feel good about making it on my own!!
Homemade Fabric Softener Ingredients:
6 cups water
3 cups white vinegar
2 cups Suave Rosemary Mint Conditioner
* Directions:
1. Mix water, vinegar, and hair conditioner in a 1 gallon container; stir. Do not shake it; it will cause foaming.
2. Use the same amount you normally use in a rinse cycle or spritz it on a wash cloth and throw in dryer.
