Growing Up

14 Aug

Zeus has always been a cute little guy with his spots and blotches.  He still has them!

Although, they are not as pronounced as when he was little.

Love the silver triangle.

But he’s also growing up.  Do you see it?

He’s growing a beard!

Soon it will be time to get him away from the girls and put him in with the big boys.

His mom and sister will certainly miss snuggling with him when I have to move him.

Still Busy

3 Aug

I never seem to find enough time to get things done around here.  I just learned the date for the August market that they are doing in State Center.  I’m going to try to get some of the totes made to take and sell.  I’ve gotten a start.

I also decided to put pockets inside some of them.

I have a big stack ready to be turned into totes on my dining room table.

My sister also brought me a couple of new ones–pig and all flock!

I’m still making soaps.  I did another five batches:  Moonlight Pomegranate, Full Moon, Kentish Rain, Fresh Linen, and Fierce.

I still have another nine batches I want to make.  Of course, these will have to cure, so they won’t be ready until the one market in September.

I still have other crafty projects that I wanted to try, but I’m pretty sure they won’t happen this summer.  I have gourds to craft with and llama fleece to do something with.  But there just isn’t time between scooping buildings, regular chores and those extras that seem to be filling my days right now.  I’m still giving Aurora extra feed.

Dolly is also getting extra care yet.  Her eyes are still pure white, so I did give her another gram of copper.  I was afraid to wait.  Hopefully, that will start helping her.

Dolly

Just to make it more fun, Dolly busted out (okay, she snuck through the panel where I had to cut Annie out last year) and went to pasture all yesterday.  Poor girl was exhausted when she got back, and the tight, tight skin on her overly full udder had popped–not what she needed.

I have her shut back in now, and I did half milk her out to keep it from rubbing anynmore.  I guess this might start to explain how time goes so quickly.
