Twas the Lull Before Christmas

I've been a bit quiet on the blog this week, but it isn't because nothing's going on.  It's because, like a lot of households this week, so much is going on.

We have some incredibly cool things afoot, but all I can give you right this minute are hints.  Don't you just hate that?  Sorry...

A couple of things briefly:  We have a goat.  A large, inanimate goat.  I'll tell you more about him very soon.

And 2) we're getting our own Jacob's Reward Farm Golding Spindle.  See what I mean about cool things afoot?  More information on that little tidbit soon as well.

Gratuitous critter photos - my aunt and her friend came by yesterday for a Christmas visit, with the obligatory time in the pasture with the critters. 

Bea and Asher ponder each other.

Aunt Karelin and Bea are up to their waist in Polar Bear.

Bea grew up in Chile around farm animals, and knows how to win them over.

Of course, Vanni is not a hard sell.  I think he likes you, Bea.
If you're in the neighborhood tomorrow, I think some of the "Barnies" are coming by for a bit of stitching time in the LRB, so please know you're invited to join us.  10 AM till 2 or 3 PM on a quiet Christmas Eve day with friends.  Sound fun and Christmasy?

Peace Out friends... talk to you again on Monday.  Merry, merry Christmas.

 Luke:8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
