Merry Christmas!

I couldn't let the day go by without wishing you all a merry Christmas.

To make it a little merrier, here's a link to a recipe for homemade kahlua.  Thanks to Lisa at Lil'fish studios for sharing this link last summer. I've been making kahlua ever since.  I do worry about the people in the liquor store think when I keep buying quarts of 151 proof Everclear. :-)

And my Lady Slipper is in full bloom, it opened up completely on Dec. 21, the winter solstice.  A sign of good things to come this year!

Trying to Keep up with it all

Sorry to have been so negligent about posting on the blog again.
So much has happened since I last posted:
* The one year anniversary of Stan's passing on October 17th (thanks to all who remembered me)
* Removal of the big willow that was damaged in the June thunderstorm (thanks Alex, Doob and Mike for cutting it down)

* My neighbor's church group, from Trio Community Church, installed new windows in my house on October 27th (Those people were amazing! Not only did they put in the new windows, they raked the yard, cleaned out my barn and fixed the chain link fences that were damaged in that June storm.)

*  Sold some of my favorite Shetland ewes to a new shepherdess, including good old Hattie (thanks for giving them all a good home Alissa!)
*  Put the Finn ram in with the girls and noticed that the burdizzoed ram lambs are just as horny as he is, oh-oh;
*  Taught a nunofelt scarf class at Creative Souls in Anoka (thanks Dawn!),
*  Wrote a grant application and spent Thanksgi…
