A New Start

Well, I've been meaning to get back into blogging - so here I am.

I won't try to catch you up on the entire past year.  Suffice it to say:

- My girls are older and are both driving now
- The goats had LOTS of babies and we eventually sold them all.  So we went from 4 does to 12 goats and now we're back to 4.  And yes, we are in the midst of breeding season.
- We took another cross country camping road trip (5 weeks worth) to California and back and I got to ride a mule down into the Grand Canyon!  Boo-Ya!
- I'm on a hiatus from singing for a while because my voice is really giving me the blues.
- I still have brown hair (stop laughing)
- I am working on becoming stronger and more flexible even though I am old.

Today is Thanksgiving, but we celebrated yesterday with Grammy, GrammaJ and the Uncle.  It was a lovely day.  I love Thanksgiving!  I also love the day AFTER Thanksgiving because it is one of our 3 yearly "Pie-For-Breakfast" days.

Today I was a Hobbit and had TWO breakfasts.

Then I went outside and did tons of lifting and hauling and moving stuff to prep the goat pen and supplies for snow.  I burned so many calories that I'm just SURE I'll need at least one more piece of pie.  Heh-heh-heh.

Then back to lowish carb por moi.  Stronger and More flexible.  Remember?  Pie is not so helpful with moving toward those goals!

Actually, I have a cold and I'm uber tired right now.  So I'm resting up in preparation for shopping tomorrow.  No, not black Friday shopping.  Just regular Friday shopping which GrammaJ and I do every, you know, Friday.  Still, I know THEY will be out there, so I'll need a good night's sleep and lots of delicious coffee before I venture out.  Pray for me.  ;-)

It was lovely to see your post show up in my reader -- and lovely to have the chance to catch up with life in Groovyville. Prayers heading your way for strength, courage, and steady nerves as you make your way through the crowds tomorrow. Even if it's just routine for you, the ravening hoardes are sure to be out. Maybe plan a stop or two for pie and coffee.

Wishing you & yours all the blessings of Thanksgiving (including plenty of pie)!
