Been making videos on my YouTube channel too which is both fun and a new avenue of stress. Not bad stress, I just happen to be a bit of a perfectionist and without the software or (let’s be honest) the time or interest in editing, they’re all in very real time...something both amusing and embarrassing when I become repetitive or mess up....sigh. Oh well. It is what it is 😆
It’s Seneca Acres Farm btw. If anyone wants to go laugh at me 🤦‍♀️😄 I think I’m really bad at it, but I also think I want to keep going with it. Maybe the quality will improve with time and practice 😝

I finished watching all of your videos so far. Don't feel bad that you don't edit them. The real, unedited videos are perfectly fine.

I can identify with finding it easier to write than to talk. I am the same way. But I hope you will learn to be more comfortable talking.

Regarding being introverted, I remember your mentioning it before. I fear that I may have mentioned the TED talk I am about to mention, and if I have already mentioned it, you can blame the senile part of me for forgetting. But I think you will find the TED talk by Susan Cain on being introverted helpful. Thanks again for posting on YouTube -- and on this forum, and for letting us come along for the ride. :)

Not too much going on lately. Getting through the fall prep for winter and gearing down to hide inside from the cold. Been freezing and snowing when it’s not raining... so, having lots of fun in the mud 🙄

This little feline showed up the other day and is super friendly, so I fed her. Hasn’t left since 😂 I guess I have a new cat. DH wants to call her Razor Paws since she kneads when she’s on your lap lol

A pretty view at a nearby park on one of the last really lovey days.

And, I’ve been working on some Coy wool, so I made a little collage of her being sheared to her wool being spun. Then the final product. I’m planning to give the yarn to my sister to make it into a sweater or slippers or something.

What a pretty kitty. With those white paws, twinkle toes sounds much better than razor paws. LOL LOL

Your picture of Coy made me giggle. Sheared, her spots really show up. I love the spots. The top not on her head made me laugh. Reminded me of a Poodle.

I left it there on purpose because it made me laugh too 😆

Well, I’ve been away for a while since my gallbladder decided to full on rebel against me and attack even for the horrible offence of drinking water. I spent last week in the hospital and am now no longer in possession of said organ. Phew!
Recovery is ongoing. I’m starting to feel better now, about four days later.

I am glad you are better. I had mine removed, and prior to it being removed I often had trouble keeping down food and water. Glad to have you back.

after what I went through with the knee replacements and the horrible rehab....
Holy cow! I need to get caught up on your journal. I didn't know you had your knees done. I hope you are getting around better and in less pain.

I’m so glad I ended up in the hospital when I did since my scheduled surgery would’ve been put off from yet another lockdown 🙄

Yeah, so I’m all good. Just in winter lazy mode right now. Spinning and processing fibre, playing games, keeping up with the usual housework and basic chores. Nothing too exciting.
Animals are doing good, my sheepies are looking a little chunky now (🤞lamb bellies, not hay/grain bellies lol). Hopefully we’ll get lambs around mid-March.

While I was recovering from surgery and couldn’t do any heavy lifting, poor DH had to deal with the latest wettest fall ever. My poor sheep have mud ringlets despite our attempts to keep them well bedded. The wet just would not let up. Now everything is finally frozen and I can hardly wait to get them cleaned up before lambing.
So much for the woolly caterpillar theory....at least so far! It’s only been frozen out for a week or two at this point.

Anyway, back to hibernation. Just thought I’d stop by for a sec.

The Kitty has stayed btw and is so loving, she dragged baby to the ground (aka accidentally knocked him over) in an attempt to get him to pet her lol 😍
