I haven't had internet service for almost a month. Now we got it last Friday. Expensive, but it's working great so far. Way faster than the old internet service we used to have! I also got a new "refurbished" computer with Windows 10 on it. I had Windows 7 before, so this is taking some getting used to! There are all sorts of differences, some of which I haven't figured out yet.
My horse Lark is doing great. I can hardly wait till the snow is gone and it warms up so I can really start riding her! She is such a pretty girl.
We keep getting warm spells followed by cold snowy spells. Our road is pretty narrow as usual for this time of year. At least this year all the neighbors are working together to keep it open. Tomorrow I will be going out and clearing out the turnouts again. We had quite a storm last Thursday with about 8 inches of snow. Then it got down to the single digits, so I didn't go out on the atv to do any plowing. It is just too cold for me to do that any more. Tomorrow it's supposed to be warmer and sunny, so I will be able to go out without freezing to death. The road is 4 miles long, and by the time I'm heading home, I am really cold, even when it's warmer out. I put on as many layers as I can and still be able to move, so I'm warm for most of the time, but the last mile I always get quite chilled. Good thing the house is nice and warm! I huddle up to the wood stove and warm right up again.
No babies yet. The first ones are due around the 25th of March. Hopefully it's warmed up and the snow is gone by then! It's going to be interesting what comes out this year. Jimmy the Boer/Nubian buck I have, got out and bred more does than I realized back in October. So there is going to be an interesting mix of Cashmere, Boer, and Nubian kids out there. Could be a good thing, or not. We'll see! Might end up sending some to the auction as meat goats.
I've taken up weaving! I got a rigid heddle loom for Christmas. I am really having fun with it, and am making all sorts of fun things. I will be launching a Spring Collection in my Etsy shop in March. All sorts of good things will be available! Stay tuned!
