Back to Knitting

22 Jul

After ten months of spending all of my free time doing research for the cemetery roadtrip, I finally get to do something else in my evenings.  I’m back to knitting!

Because it’s been so long since I knit anything, that means Salem had never seen such a fun thing before.

Honestly, I am doing a lot of knitting right now because I’m taking a class for my off-farm job that requires me to watch twenty-three ninety-minute videos.  Seriously.  I can’t just sit for that long, so I’m knitting.

I finished the hooded scarf I was working on (I sold all of them I had).  Now I’ve moved on to a baby blanket.

We’ll see if I get it done by the time I finish the course.

Saturday Evening’s Storm

26 Apr

Well, we had another round of storms Saturday evening.  When I came in from doing chores, I saw that there was a tornado warning about one county over and heading towards me.  So I gathered up the cats and dog and headed to the soap room.

Really, Bob? That is not where you belong.

I also managed to get the car put in the garage.  I might have threatened Venus if she jumped on it because I caught her on the freezer in the garage earlier in the day (no re-creation for a photo).

Venus and Aphrodite were not happy with losing all that space to my car.

I went to make sure the kids all came up from pasture.  As I headed back to the soap room, the rain started.

The edge of the storm reaching us.

But in the time I took getting everyone in, the storm had died down a little bit.  I was sandwiched between severe storms.  It did rain a lot.

We just chilled for a bit.  I had nothing to do but play with taking pictures of the animals.

I still have the mattress out there from the last storm and checking Aphrodite.

Sky finally found a big enough bed

Rocky was the hardest to catch and bring out, but he was the most chill out there

That is not any better Bob–that’s a llama wool rug for sale.

I have no idea what Tiger was doing while everyone else was chilling.

Then I took everyone back to the house.  Well, except Bob. He decided he wanted to stay outside.

After the first round of rain.

That’s when they issued a severe warning for my area.

But we all made it through the night safely, even though Bob was rather wet when he finally came in the house.

The Last Weekend

15 Dec

Coming up will be the last weekend I’m open in the soap room before Christmas.  We’ve been working hard to keep it stocked.

New tote bags plus restocking the goat feed totes.

Mom brought out some painted goose eggs that she hadn’t brought before, and she made more snowman goose egg ornaments.

I got around to making goat milk lotion.  I guess that’s another good way to use up my goat milk.

By the end of the weekend, I had made six different scents.

Honestly, we are so full in the soap room that I can’t find a place to set my cup of coffee out there.

Heading out to the soap room with my cup of coffee to get to work.

And I’m already thinking about later this spring and even next Christmas season.
