An AMAZING Opportunity!

Wow - this just blows my mind! It is the chance of a lifetime for a fiber lover, animal lover...anyone who would love to have their own herd of Angora goats. Susie from Martha's Vineyard/Hudson Valley Fiber Farm is hosting the most incredible giveaway I have ever heard of. You have to write an essay detailing why you would love to have your very own small herd of Angora goats. Make sure to include why you think you deserve them and what facilities you have to help care for them (how many acres of land you have, etc.). Did I mention that she's also throwing in a custom-made run-in, courtesy of Sand Creek Post and Beam?! To get all the information, check out Susie's blog post HERE. Just in case something happens to that link, it's Hurry!! You only have until September 16th to submit your essay!

If you win, make sure to send me lots of pics of your new furbabies! Don't forget to thank a vet!

September already?!

Holy crap! I can't believe it is September already! Labor Day is on Monday, and that practically marks the end of summer. Quite a bit has happened since my last post. The hubby had his ACL surgery on August 27th. All went well with that, but he was in a LOT of pain. Luckily, it is starting to feel better. His physical therapist says that his knee is healing very well.

We also got word that one of the pictures we submitted to the Anatolian Shepherd calendar of Pasha is actually going to be used! How freaking cool is that?! If you want to get your own copy, go HERE. They are only $20, and the proceeds go to a great cause.

Lets see, what else? Oh, I finally finished that second mitten for K. I just have to take pictures of them. I finally started B's hat. Instead of going to mittens after her hat, I think I'm going to do Iz's hat first. I also might look for a pattern for a scarf that has a place for hands, rather than making mittens for the girls. I'm not sure yet...guess we'll just have to see what kind of magic Ravelry holds.

I'm also looking for a job. I applied for one that I really want, but I don't know if I'll get it or not. Hopefully I'll finish my coursework with M-Tec by the end of next month and can start doing transcription. At this point I'm just ready to be making some money!

I think that's everything for now. Don't forget to thank a vet!
