Spring has finally arrived….I think. The weather has started to warm and in March that means the wind will be blowing. Flowers are starting to sneak up out of the dry ground. We also have baby goats arriving! On Sunday we had a dam (mom) deliver triplets. The larger 2 are doing great! The smallest one had no muscles strength in her legs, just not enough room inside for stretching! Because she couldn’t get up and nurse for the first day or so we have had to bottle feed her. The boys helped. I’n not sure mom will take her now, she is still pretty small and wobbly on her feet. We may have to bottle feed her for awhile. She has stollen they hearts of the family. We will need to give her a few days and make sure she will make it then we can name her!
I was mopping the kitchen floor last week (a kitchen floor that I hate) and the word PRIDE appeared in my head. I can’t seem to get it out, so I am going to blog about it.
Definition of Pride according to Merriam-Webster Dictionary:
1: the quality or state of being proud: as
a : inordinate self-esteem : conceit
b : a reasonable or justifiable self-respect
c : delight or elation arising from some act, possession, or relationship
2: proud or disdainful behavior or treatment : disdain
3a : ostentatious display
b : highest pitch : prime
4: a source of pride : the best in a group or class
5: a company of lions
6: a showy or impressive group <a pride of dancers
I think I'm speaking about the self-esteem. It doesn't matter what you have, how nice it is (or isn't). We all need to be proud of ourselves and our belongings. We work hard for what we have and we need to hold that close. Don't let things fall apart around you, keep your head up, keep working and the self-esteem/self-respect will be there.
Here it is…my first official blog post. This is something I have wanted to do for awhile and haven’t had the courage to do it. I have decided to grab 2011 by the horns, so here we are with an early start! I didn’t choose the banner photo, however, I couldn’t have made a better choice for a new beginning!
My thoughts for this blog are many. I want to keep everyone up to date on the remodeling we are doing to our ranch house and property. We raise alpacas and boer meat goats, I will work on showing your photos and keep you updated on ranch babies. I have become a “foodie” so I will post recipes that my family enjoys. I do have some exciting business plans I am working on…they will revolve around the alpacas and their fiber….they will also be posted here.
Please feel free to post comments, thoughts, ideas etc. I welcome the feedback.
Thanks for stopping!
