Of course, I've been spending time cuddling Lucky Nickel. She has taken to entering the other goats' pen by deftly climbing the fence, hanging out with the other goats all day, and then when she sees me come home, she flies back over the fence and follows me like an ever-faithful dog. Fortunately, none of the other goats seem to be intent on learning her methods, so they all stay where they are. One really cold night about a week ago, Lucky Nickel was insistently bleating at the back door. I finally gave in....I think I was having a weak moment. An old pair of gym shorts provided an excellent "holder-in-place" for a diaper, since Miss Nickel is too large to fit diapers any more. She enjoyed her foray into the house where she grew up, and I enjoyed her company for a while. I did put her back in the barn at the end of the evening though.
my Etsy shop lately, so you can check them out there too! Here are some of the ones I've spun lately.
Other than that....well....I think I've just been hibernating. I should have been a bear. Something about January just seems to sap the energy out of me and make me want to snuggle under a blanket and read a good book and pretend that the white stuff outside doesn't exist. Here's hoping you've all been keeping warm this January, unless you live down under, in which case I hope you're keeping dry.
