Now that I am another year older, and this is supposed to be a big energy shift day with the full moon in Libra and a pink one at that, I am ready for all things positive! I'm also at a significant age according to astrology where big shifts occur. So, I'm ready! :-)
I am at a turning point in my business, one where I think everything is going to fall into place finally. I'm learning a whole lot about marketing, which I will be implementing over the next month or so. There is so much to learn! It's an adventure, that's for sure.
Yesterday I got a new keyboard and mouse for this computer, and wow, what a difference! I should've got this weeks ago. It's interesting how as things slowly wear out, we don't change anything till the last possible moment, when if it would have happened a bit earlier, life would be much easier. Change is a good thing, even though sometimes it doesn't seem like it at the moment. As I look back over the years, I've come to realize everything does happen for a reason, and nothing changes for the worse, only better, even though sometimes it doesn't seem like the change could have any good to it at all. But, there is a silver lining in everything, sometimes we just have to look deeply to find it. Life is journey, with every twist and turn a new opportunity for learning and growing.
I am hoping today Lily, my Alpine dairy goat, will have her babies. I have been waiting for 15 years for a kid to be born on my birthday. So far it hasn't happened. Close, but not on the day. Once was at 10:30 pm on the 10th, but that's as close as it's been. It's not looking too promising for today, either. One of these years.....
We woke up to a dusting of snow this morning, but it's all gone, the sun is shining, and I just might get out into the flower beds and get them cleaned up today! Also have 3 goats left to comb, then the harvest will be over for this year. I'm down to the best of the best now, and this year I'm downsizing even more, so there are some great goats going up for sale here in the next month or so. I'm getting way down in numbers for a few years so I can get another facet of this business going, then I might build back up, depending on what's happening in the cashmere world. I'm keeping a couple of the bucks and a handful of the does, and a couple of the wethers and sticking with that for a while. As some of my friends have said to me, "there is more to life than goats". I'm not entirely sure about that, but we will see. :-) I love my goats and can't imagine not having any, so I will always keep them around.
