When I Close My Eyes, All I See Are Baby Goats...

Exciting News!!!!!

The Baby Goats Have Arrived!!!!!

Last Wednesday and Thursday we witnessed the birth of our first goat kids!

Fiona gave birth to a singlet doeling whom we have named Celeste.

Like mother like daughter; don't they look identical?

Fiona is a proud and very caring mama!

And, the next morning, dear Amelia gave birth to triplet boys! All spotty and sweet.

We have named them Jupiter (Joop for short), Zaphyeer and Still working on the littlest one's name as he looks just like his mama and we have been ill-mannered-ly calling him 'little Amelia'. Not a very masculine thing for a buckling (;

Zaphyeer and 'no-name' testing out their legs.

Jupiter is a big boy....moon spots and all!

Beautiful and perfect...still wet behind the ears. Look ma, I can stand! (:

All are doing very well and happy and healthy! What a joy! I'm hooked on Nubian goats! When I close my eyes, all I see are their little velvety sweet heads! (: Too much fun~

I Come In The Little Things...

I come in the little things,
Saith the Lord:
Yea, on the glancing wing
Of eager birds,
the softly pattering feet
Of furred and gentle beasts.
I come in the little things,
Saith the Lord:
Not borne on the morning's wings
Of majesty,
but I have set My feet
Amidst the delicate and bladed wheat.
I come in the little things,
Saith the Lord. Amen.

-Evelyn Underhill

This beautiful little poem is compliments of Bethany Tudor's (daughter of Tasha) book, Drawn From New England. It has always brought tears to my eyes. It is beautiful and real. The little things. Don't forget them, for they are what this beautiful world is made up of. And, all too often, we overlook the little things until it is too late, then they are gone from our world.

Make room, and time, for the little things.

Etenoha - The Feminine as Art

Etenoha: Our Mother, the Earth. The feminine earth name of the Native Americans. The Lakota call her Ina Maka.

This is a small peek (with just one eye, mind you!) of an artwork in progress. I am not going to divulge her completely until all is done. I apologize for the graininess of the picture...I must invest in a scanner.

May you feel the ground beneath your feet and rest peacefully under the stars as our seasons shift from Winter to Spring in a few weeks time.

My First Blog Award

I am very pleased to announce that I have been graciously awarded my very first blog award by Jenny of Sheepy Hollow Farm. The goal of the Liebster Award recognizes creative/crafty blogs with less than 300 followers and shares them with others.

Upon accepting this award you agree to:
1) Blog about the Liebster award & reveal your 3 blog picks;
2) Let the recipients know that you chose them;
3) Copy & paste the blog award on your blog.

Thank you ever so much to my dear online friend and kindred spirit, Jenny of Sheepy Hollow Farm. Jenny loves all of the same things that are dear to my heart and raises sheep and goats too. Stop on over to her site and take a look. She is one busy, creatively inspiring woman!

Part of the Liebster Award denotes that you recognize three other bloggers who have outstanding sites and have under 300 followers. So, on that note, I pass the Liebster Award on to:

Julia Guthrie at East of the Sun, West of the Moon. Her artwork is magical and she has a splendidly inspiring website!

Maureen Anderson and family at The Fullness Thereof, Hearthside Farms. If you are looking for 'get your hands dirty and get back to basics while living a charmingly beautiful life' tips...this is the place to be!


Marqueta, at a site so beautiful, feminine and gracious, it looks to be straight out of the pages of an old Victoria magazine...Sweete Felicity.

Please have fun looking at all these lovely, inspiring sites. And, thank you for taking time to stop by and enjoy a word or two here!
