Fiber Roving~~June 2019~~~I feel like I am buried in spring projects outside without enough time to get them done, but it is spring/summer in Alaska, always lots to do. The wonderful weather this past weekend kept me outside moving from one project to the next, but the list doesn???t seem to be getting any shorter! I did take the goats for a browsing walk-about. It was their first walk this year, and they got a bit crazy, trying to eat, explore, and just run about, a bit of spring fever and fun ... Read Full Post »

Fiber Roving~~May 2019~~ Well shearing is done for one more year. Everyone is running about looking bear-naked, and honestly kind of funny. All are dancing on newly trimmed hoofs, and have been de-bugged too. So happy, I hope, but its done. Could not do it without the whole fam-damily, as my father used to say. Elijah and Sarah did the shearing, Alexus caught the fleece and bagged it, Oliver and I did the hoofing, and Keegan was in charge of the gates, and helped us catch the goats. We set-u...

Fiber Roving ~ April 2019~~~ Spring is here, the snow has almost completely melted, except in the heavily shaded places, my geese have been so happy with a wide variety of puddles to splash and play in. Had a visitor last night that upset them, their odd honking alerted me, it was late evening, and when I went to check on them an immature goshawk was sitting close to a new nest, I yelled, waved my arms, the dog barked and he was gone in a flash. They are laying and trying to determine where t... Read Full Post »

Fiber Roving March 2019 I think of March as the beginning of spring. Lately people have been telling me that spring is April or May or even June. Today to a good day to confirm spring beginning in March. The sun is warm and the snow is sliding off all my buildings and making dripping sounds on the deck. I have been shoveling snow for 2 days now off the deck and the side porch. My daughter was with me Friday, and she dig out the small door on the shop (where all my animal feed is) to get in...
