    She got a deal on that, lol. When I posted the ad for the goat I wasn't sure she was bred - but within the week or so interim I started noticing a growing belly and a change in her udder. I told the lady when she bought her that she "might" be bred but no promises. I should have trusted my gut and sold her as bred for more money! But it's not all about the money - this was a wonderful home and the Nigi does deserved that. :)

    I'm going to really try to get some more seeds in the ground today. I'm suddenly all fired up to get it done! The weather the last couple of days has been nothing short of spectacular! I've had the windows open for several days now and am loving it!

    I MADE BREAD!

    It's been decades since I baked bread. But it's just like riding a bicycle - it all comes back!
