If spending the night with goats, sheep and alpacas at the end of the year is any indication of how the new year will go, then I'll be living in a barn.
The fireworks started when it got dark. The people down the road do this twice a year. New year's eve and July 4th. The goats were literally terrified, running around like they didn't know what was happening. The sheep and alpacas ran to the back yard. I had to go out there and give them hay to keep their minds off all the noise. Poor babies. I hate fireworks. Really hate them. People just don't realize how terrified animals get. This is when dogs and cats get so scared, they run. And keep running. And then get lost. Terrified and now lost. If I wasn't outside with my goats, they would have bolted through the electric fence and kept running. But I was with them, hugging them and talking to them. They were all fine and went back to the barn when it was all over. Then it happens again in 7 months.
Our 2 grand daughters have been here since last Thursday. We have done nothing but go, go , go. We have shopped and shopped some more. We go to my mom's this afternoon for turnip greens, Hoppin' John black eyed peas and rice, ham and corn bread. Yum! Can hardly wait.
I'll take the girls to get their hair cut Saturday. I am getting mine cut too. Time for a change.
So since March 7th, 2015, I have lost 47 pounds. Then I just stopped a few months ago. I was holding at 202 for awhile. Then a friend called and said she found Lay's Biscuits and Gravy potato chips at Walmart! OMG! That was when my sister was here for the holiday markets and I was too busy to go. She went to Walmart and I asked her to check on the chips. They had a whole bunch of them. So she got me 6 bags. Yes. 6 bags of biscuits and gravy chips! They are so good y'all. And I ate all 6 bags. I am over them right now.
So my goal in 2016 is to get down to 160 pounds. By my birthday June 5th. I can do this.
I also want to concentrate on my fiber studio. My ex SIL's girlfriend is a graphic designer. She's going to help me get a website for my studio up and running. And I want to open it as a little shop too. So I have a lot of work to do here. Lots of wool to spin!
I had to order a charger for my camera, since I can't find it. Anywhere. I swear, stuff just disappears around here as soon as I put it down. But if I find it, I'll put it by a plug in so I won't lose it again.
I hope the comments work, since I haven't gotten any in awhile. I've had lots of people looking, but no comments. So I just wonder if people are not able to comment or just don't have anything to say. Just wondering.
So happy 2016 to you all! I hope and pray this year will be wonderful for everyone. And do something nice for someone as much as you can ok?
