A whirl wind of a life, that's what we are living.
 Busy, busy busy.
New baby, extreme weather that jumps around, Christmas shopping, and visiting. Yes, my oldest son and his girlfriend are home for a visit.
We are going to be having a new little goat in the near future. One of our Boer does is bred, she would be the one who was chosen to keep the separated buck company and this is how he repays me! Please pray the weather stays mild.
Our decorations are going up! it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!!
The bows are on the gate and it looks so pretty. I hope to go get pictures later today.
Have a wonderful day!
What are your plans for your Christmas baking.
 I am thinking shortbread are needed.

Is anyone else in a snow storm. I am! Ahh I am so not cut out for this winter driving...
It has snowed on and off all day. I guess it had to come sooner than later but ahh!!!
I did start the ice rink today but now you would never know it, I can 't see it at all.
Life here has a great way of being stressful. You can be sailing along and then bam life knocks you back. I kind of feel like climbing in a hole or covering myself over with a blanket and then crawl out when it is calm.
I have been working on a Christmas stocking for my oldest son's girlfriend it is coming along quite nice. I will post a picture soon.
Our female Alpacas are so enjoying their new spot, they are absolutely loving  roaming around the acreage. I have never seen them so happy, my Dad thinks it is because they can look down on the property. He says they feel like they are in Peru.
Well I hope you all stay safe tonight. Have a wonderful  evening.

I had a very nice visit with my niece and her two kids, she is down for a bit visiting. Yesterday we "My Mom, My Niece, My Daughter and My Self" went to Kamloops as my daughter had a Doctor appointment. It is so annoying that we can not have babies in our town. Less than two weeks to go!!!
Then I have been running around with hockey. Last night was picture night and we lucked out the weather stayed nice.
We have been battling it out with our bull...but...I think we are winning. I will let you know when day breaks...
Well have a wonderful day!

A Warm, Cozy home

Since the dealership is taking it's sweet, bloody time with my truck...We could not do hockey last night, no real hardship for me. However my boys do really love the darn sport.
 Anyways, yesterday afternoon to early evening we actually had time to do some work, time to do some farming.
 We had many, many bags of wonderful wool, amazing fibre. The fibre was so amazing, our dogs found it and loved it too. Ruined, most of it!
We loaded, and loaded some more a huge tractor load. Then we used a giant bulk bag to clean and fill full. We raked and cleaned the barn. We lost the goat, that snuck out on Hyacinth, only to find the goat in the chicken house eating their grain.
During this whole cleaning frenzy we did not see one mouse. A month ago they would run in front of me, pass right next to my feet, climb up walls. You could actually here them scurry at night. It was horrible.
Well, we have been raiding war on them and without sounding to cocky, I think...I think we might be winning.
