This and That!!






Will try to get a quick post in this morning before the day begins. Finally finished all the items I had entered in the fibre section at the Llama Conference and got RH on the road to the Conference. He phoned after he got there and said one of the fleeces I sent they could not find.....I said it went out to the truck in your hands...now they were all in the same bag for goodness sake...so whatever happened to it it happened after it went into the truck. Have not heard from him since so it could have been a mix-up somewhere. Got the donated scarves finished, got a picture of the red one finished but forgot to get one of the last scarf. I am here at home llama watching, we have about ten llamas and a couple alpacas that are all due to have their babies any day, so far nothing. We had two days of record breaking heat and thought for sure the babies would all arrive at once. Finally got a good picture of the little boy llama a few days ago, he now has a name..."Paxton" and thanks to Valli and her suggestion that I name the little girl "Posie" she also has a name. Yesterday it cooled off a bit, they are doing a controlled burn in the mountains and we are getting the smoke around here so was glad for the breeze yesterday but the wind went down last night and smoke moved back in so woke up with a foggy head and sore throat, is supposed to be windy again this afternoon so hopefully it will blow away. when it was so hot I went downstairs and sorted some more llama fleece to card and spin, I spun a skein to enter in the fibre show and want another skein to go with it to have enough for a scarf, but did not get back at it yesterday. My little rose bush just keeps blooming, I bought it thinking it was one of those miniature roses but it just keeps growing and blooming, now the problem is to manage to keep it over the winter, I have been putting out mouse seed to get rid of the mice but I do not think it is doing any good as they are still running around and I think they are undermining some of my flowerbed...grrrrr!! What to do...what to do!! The garden is shutting down slowly, we had a bit of frost so things are just touched. The potatoes are great this year, will have to get the fibre out of the cold room so we have someplace to put them...and we better get them out of the ground pretty soon or I will not have to worry as I see the moles have moved into that area. Just can not win around here with the predators, is a constant battle to keep my animals and gardens safe. Well I can hear I am being paged from the barnyard so better get moving, have the window open and the goats are calling me...also the resident rooster is doing his thing too...lots of crowing going on for one rooster. He is probably hungry too!!
Well!!!! After I wrote this post this morning I tried to send it and it would not go, tried a couple more times today...would not go....I just tried again... and all of a sudden I noticed the the little box was not checked beside do you except etc. I checked it and everything is ready to go.....now if I could just figure out how to move the pictures around and not just dump them all in.........someday.

Very beautiful potatoes. Sorry you had to miss the Conference. The weather has certainly been quite something.
