Happy New Year

Hello to my faithful blog readers. . . Happy New Year to you!

Yes, I know, I am a week late. Last Monday we had a party, as usual, for New Years. We had a great time. Before the party though, some of us had started to get sick. After the party, the Happy New Year sign was still up, except that the N in "new" had been torn down. So it says, "happy ew year". That accurately describes our new year thus far. Kind of funny.

Thankfully those of us who were sick are all on the uphill side of things... for now. Praise the Lord.

Last year was really an unexpected out of the ordinary year for me and my family. Our whole political involvement started a year ago, and that really was a huge part in a lot of what we did last year.

On the farm side of things, we had 110 kids born on the ranch and many lambs, bunnies, chicks, a donkey foal and whatever else that I am forgetting.

For the most part, things are going good though. Kidding season is scheduled to start in about 2 weeks, and I am certainly looking forward to it! We bred the does at very close intervals, so once kidding season starts, I don't think we'll be getting much rest for a while.

Take care!
