Good-bye 2015

31 Dec

I can’t believe 2015 is done.  It’s certainly been a wild year with lots of highs and lows.  Now the sun is setting on it forever.

I am looking forward to an exciting and more free-flowing 2016.  The weather could improve a bit to make me happy, and I want to see the completion of my garage project.  We also still have some fencing improvements to take care of.

Of course, I’m already planning for next year’s pumpkin patch.  Since it’s the middle of winter, I have no new pumpkin patch picture, so here’s a random goose picture instead.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year.

I’ve been hanging out and taking pictures of the birds a lot lately.  Don’t worry.  The goats are all here and doing well.  They certainly warm my heart on a cold day.

Winter Hobby

29 Dec

Well, the horrible weather we’ve had means I’ve spent more time blogging in the last week than I have in ages. I’ve enjoyed it, but I do have things I need to get done outside.  I’d be much happier if this break had been filled with days that were 30 degrees and sunny.  It also means that I’ve spent a lot of time on another winter hobby: birdwatching.

Now I just want to replace my horrible distorting picture window with a better quality one.  Someday…
