I’m finally starting to come out of my Christmas sugar coma and thought it might be time to post something. You think I’m exaggerating, but no, I think I ate more treats over the last three weeks than I have in the last three years. Gross. I’m hoping I’ve learned my lesson. Good thing our garden is still producing treats of the healthier kind.
The animals are doing great. The goats are as fun as fun can be, and we’re looking forward to babies this spring. We were a little worried about how everyone would get along with our new set up, but it seems to be working. We even managed to introduce the baby chicks into the adult chicken run without losing a single bird — in case you didn’t know, chickens are mean to each other. Hen pecking is real — often to the death.
So that’s about it. I sure am looking forward to 2014. We’ve had some pretty big projects hanging over our heads for the last several years, but it feels like things are finally settling down. Here’s hoping that the economy can limp along for just a little bit longer. It would be nice to have a little peace before the poop totally hits the fan. How’s that for a Happy New Year wish.
