Hi, I'm Still Here. Are You?
Well, I did it again. Moved, got a job, became a workaholic. I'm still around though. As a very quick update, I am almost finished with graduate school. Now I'm a student intern. I always thought that I would finish the academic classes and then get one job that would fulfill my internship requirements and provide an income, and my life would settle down. Nope. I have a full-time job and a volunteer internship. I keep deciding that I don't really have time to sleep and eat.
Fortunately, my 16-year-0ld daughter, Ashley, loves the animals and has taken over most of that. I have not been very productive in the fiber arts. I have finished spinning one skein of yarn in the last year, and have been working on knitting the same sock since at least December. Not even the second of a pair. And I think that my digital camera has worn out, so I don't have pictures available at the moment. We have no babies this year either ( so far, anyway ). I should at least post a picture of Cayenne, who is half llama and half alpaca. She is beautiful, but not sure that she trusts us. Cayenne came to us in the Fall. And she loves the pears from the pear trees. We had to make sure that the pears were small enough or soft enough for her to eat, since llamas have such long necks and I hear they can choke easily. She never had a problem though. Now it is supposedly spring, and the grass appears intermittently from underneath the snow. Cayenne and the goats look disgusted when snow appears yet again to cover up their pasture. Since the children have become more proficient in digital photography, computer skills, and fiber arts, perhaps I will invite them to post here from time to time. They even have cameras that work. And they are quite busy but I think they have a bit of free time.
