Thanksgiving Coming

Novemer 21, and Thanksgiving is next week. It is all coming so fast! Since we are having a BIG gathering here, I am very much looking forward to it. I am not stressing, either, because I am really asking everyone to bring food. The variations are amazing!

I pray for pretty weather!

Get ready for 2012!

Okay, so our candidate didn't win. God is still in control. All I can say is he better do a good job, 'cause in 2012 we will have a WOMAN IN OFFICE! GO PA-LIN! NO MORE SIN! GO PA-LIN! (Can you come up with any other slogans?)

Hopefully, everyone who reads this (all three of you?) - ha - will have voted! I woke up my DH (dear husband) this morning before 6:00 am and said "let's go vote"! I guess I was kind of ready to go. It will be interesting! God has many great things for us in our future! I DO know that for sure! Do not lose faith!

Here are some pics:

Lucy is doing so well. I am thinking of breeding her soon. She is up most of the time, but just laying down here.

Here is Martha. She was born in June of this year, so she is almost five months old. She looks great! But almost too much like a deer. Since we live ON A HUNTING CAMP, I told Gary I was going to have to put a hunter's orange vest on her and paint on it: I am a goat! Anyway, I will probably breed her before the end of the year.

This is Lucille! Isn't she GORGEOUS! She really has the most desireable qualities, I believe. She has such beautiful brown "moon" spots and is very healthy. She has become so sweet and friendly. I don't know if it's because she is pregnant for the first time (I hope) or if she is just getting more used to me. (She was born here, but not bottle fed. Then she stayed at Jimmy's for a little while.) Even Gary says she is nuzzling up to him for the first time. Well, if she is pregnant, I think it happened on Daniel's (my brother-in-law's birthday), the 11th of October. This will mean a March birthing. Nice time.
I have more exciting news: I now have a farm name and a herd name:
We are COUNTRY LIFE DAIRY FARM and our herd name is COUNTRY LIFE. I am registered with the American Dairy Goat Association. This means that my name "Country Life" will appear before my animals' names that are born here. So, Lucille will be "Country Life Lucille". I am next going to have to make a goat farm blog. This will be for my dairy goat business. Will let you know about that!
Have a great day all!
