Just Surviving

No posts lately because things have been pretty rough around here for a while.  I got the goats settled in a temporary pen, but was unable to get the larger pen setup because apparently this entire pasture is rocks with a couple inches of dirt.  I could barely get the t posts in for the temp pen.  So far, it doesn't seem to be a problem for them, since they prefer to hang out in the goat house on cold days anyway.

I decided to make a run at the costume market again for Halloween this year, which wiped out October, then I temped as a supervisor at my former place of employment for the holiday season.  Things got hectic when I found I was expecting again, my health went down hill for a bit, but we are climbing out of the first trimester hole, trying to get some motivation going again.

I'm planning out my Spring course of action for the pasture, even though I'm going to be getting bigger by the day.  I'm hoping to have my Dad come up with his tractor and auger attachment to get the pasture in good enough shape that I can maybe think about adding chickens before May.  Gotta get back on track!

These are my girls!  The twins are Princess Leia Organa and Queen Padme Amidala.   The other with my toddler(to show scale) is Kara "Starbuck" Thrace.  I'll post some more recent pics soon...
