The Eights - a break from lambing posts!

I saw this on the Goats in the Garden blog and I thought it looked like fun, so I did it! Feel free to do it on your own blog if you'd like! I had to modify the last category a little bit.

Hopefully I'll be blogging soon about KitKat's lambs, but until then, here are some lists of 8 things.

8 Things I’m Looking Forward To
1. My parents visiting in May!
2. My exams being finished for this semester
3. Seeing which of our young fruit trees planted last year bear fruit this year
4. More time for gardening this summer because I’m not taking any classes
5. Finishing building our new barn.
6. Finishing the new fencing for our pasture layout
7. Spinning roving from my very own sheep
8. Being finished part-time law school (in 2 years)

8 Things I Did Yesterday
1. Cuddled with the new lambs, especially Bramble, because she’s so little!
2. Cuddled with Luna
3. Collected eggs
4. Enjoyed a 6-course meal at our local culinary school’s gourmet dinner series
5. Sat for 5 minutes with Scrimshaw and Sketch, 2 of my favorite hens, on my lap, in the sunshine
6. Walked around the garden to look for spring flowers and found miniature irises blooming
7. Completed an assignment for one of my classes
8. Made egg custard with some of my extra eggs

8 Things I Wish I Could Do
1. Have more time to spend in my garden
2. Build a beautiful grape and rose arbor (one of these days...)
3. Buy more land so I could have more sheep
4. Have more time for hand spinning wool
5. Live closer to my parents
6. Resist the temptation of eating too much pasta
7. Rescue all the farm animals that need to be rescued
8. Grow zone 7 plants in my zone 5 garden

8 Shows I Watch (I have changed this to 8 shows that I used to watch or have watched in the past, since I do not watch any television now)
1. Boston Legal (haven’t watched it in about 2 years though)
2. Desperate Housewives (liked it at first but then it just got too silly)
3. Ground Force (but it wasn’t as good after Alan left)
4. City Gardener
5. All Creatures Great and Small (when I was younger and it was on PBS)
6. Party of Five
7. Antiques Road Show (off and on)
8. Are You Being Served? (off and on)

I am so intrigued!! I'm now on a mission to contact any local culinary schools to see if they have similar offerings!

I'm going do one for sure this is a fun one! I love that you can just sit and enjoy your animals... Isn't it better than therapy

When I first saw the title to this post, I thought it said "The Fights." I wondered what your little darlings were up to!

Hooray to no classes this summer! I bet you're gonna have some FU-UN! Hey, I live in Zone 7b...what kind of plants are you wishing you could grow? Maybe I can plant some for you to grow vicariously.

I keep thinking about Are You Being Served, and the older woman with Nobody around me knows that show, so I can't reference it without risking social ostracism.

Miss Chef and I are volunteering at the Farmers' Market tomorrow, so I will check on the shirt prices and email you...eventually... :)
