  1. You just wanted an adrenaline rush from my buggie. <bigcheesygrin>
  2. Awww... my siggy that Pixie made me is gone. Such it is with change, I guess.
  3. AWWWWWWWW.... Thanks for the Happy Birthdays! Has been crazy busy around here. 10 new baby goats out of 4 new mamas--yes, first timers, in the last week. Been busy, busy getting babies on the milk bucket and getting the mamas used to milking. They are all doing really well. Thanks AO54G for dragging me in. I miss this place. HOME!! <3
  4. DD and I had such a wonderful time at the first gathering. Memories of such super people that we'll never forget. <3 No such thing as *vacation* with the goats now. Will be busy milking and breeding and markets. Someday I'll find my way *home* for a visit. Hope everyone has a wonderful time making forever memories.
  5. I see more of *those* looks from women than from men when it comes to selling my goat milk soaps/lotions. Women are much more... forward about their opinion of it being 'weird'. I've had some right down rude comments. And I've seen the look directed at their husband. If a woman approaches my soap and is interested, her husband just kinda stands there and waits while she makes her purchase. If I point out our men's scents and he's truly not interested, he just smiles and shakes his head 'no'. But if a guy approaches the soap, I've seen wives roll their eyes and glare. If he starts asking about

    Oh, I'm soooo sorry about your loss of Abby. I remember so many of your posts about her. Such a wonderful gal. (((()))) Yup, I figure if the *work* and *cost* bother me, then I'm not ready yet. When work/cost seems irrelevent, then the desire for the dog itself is true and I'll be ready. It was 6 yrs after I lost Greta before I got Gracie. Making sure that I'm not trying to *replace* them is also an issue. Rottie's are soooo different that I have to make sure my *expectations* are in the right place.

    Sadie the dog

    Sounds like time for some basic obedience. I keep *thinking* about getting another pup. o.O It's been over 4 yrs since I lost Gracie. I miss having a dog in the house. The training and playing. But then i think about the work and the $$... and maybe I'm not ready and I better wait.
  8. Well, dang! Got my hopes up. I have a Toyota. The air doesn't work. It does have spiders. Are spiders attracted to Toyotas for some reason? LOL Anywho... was thinking *maybe* it was a recall to get air fixed. But... nope. My Toyota is a Corolla... 1997. ROFLMBO At least I don't have to worry about some arachnid popping me in the nose with my own airbag.
  9. Farmer's Market this morning. I really don't like October markets, but regulars miss ya if ya don't show. It's there last chance to stock up on product til May... or pay shipping. Flea Market is slow too. We do "The World Famous, Largest Outdoor Flea Market in the MidWest, SHIPSHEWANA!" <imagine an anouncer on a lousy speaker barking that out... every hour> LOL Anywho, we are down to one lot for October. We did our normal two this last week and it wasn't worth it. Too many festivals and fairs going on. Got home and *observed* Ojie (aka: Sugar Plum Fairy that I mentioned in another

    *Home* work.

    Nice to see you, too, MomM. Annarchy, I would LOVE a hottub. Someday. Well, I don't feel like I got much done today. <sigh> Once I made the mess in the soap room, I kinda gave up on that. Will cut the H/V Biscotti tomarrow and see how *bad* it really is. May be more *ugly* soap for the bulk basket. Ah well. I did a *bit* in the kitchen. Not much, just took care of some clutter. It's still *organized chaos* around here. LOL Mostly worked on more soap. Straightened out my wrapped inventory (in the kitchen), sorted and reboxed my unwrapped inventory (upstairs) and labeled and wrapped 1
  11. Pregnancy indicator? Why milking? I've never milked does from the time they're dried up until they freshen. I've heard of others who ease out a bit if they udder up too much, but the only time mine get real tight and shiney is within 24 hrs of kidding. Sometimes I'll milk out colostrum, about half, to make the doe more comfy for pending labor and give me time to heat treat. My gals usually start to udder up 4-6 wks before kidding, but don't get *full* til the day of.

    Well, I always figure when having a list of things to do... to do the one you want to do the least and get it over with. Soooo... I made the Honey/Vanilla Biscotti soap. Now I remember why I use Black Vanilla FO from SGS instead of Vanilla Lace FO from NDA! I could barely stir in my shreds! Thin oatmeal? HAH! In less than 2 minutes, I had a bucket full of soap that was like oatmeal that got forgot on the back of the stove for DAYS!! I had to scoop and smoosh into my molds (3" pvc--18" tall). What a MESS. Soap splattered all over the soap room. GEESH! What kind of mess can I get into nex
  13. I wish I could hold jrs over to kid as 2 yr old ff. I always end up with a dry yearling, which is fine having just one, but can't afford to wait 2 yrs to see udders. I love my 2 yr old ff being so big, but even yearling ff catch up by the time they're 2. I'd love to have Jan/Feb kids as they grow out so nice, but I HATE milking before March (would prefer May-LOL.) Have too hard of a time getting rid of whethers born after March and don't like the way summer babies grow out. Too many problems with worms/cocci. So I compromise and breed EVERYONE to kid in March. Jr does are all 7 months old and

    Thank you. I'm very proud of how far we've come with our stock and our breeding program. It's my favorite part of the job. The part that I consider *Fun* and not *Work*. If you'd like to see pics of all my gals and guys, feel free to check out my website: www.lunamojo.com. Website building/updating is NOT a favorite part of my job. But I did just update my Buck, Doe (Sr and Jr) and Breeding pages about a month ago.
