Freezing, Farmers, and Sewing
So what in the heck is up with the weather everywhere? For heaven's sake it snowed in Florida! We haven't had any snow here although it has snowed in other parts of Georgia, but it is freezing nonetheless. I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest so you'd think the cold wouldn't phase me. I have a theory though! I think when you live in a climate that is generally colder, you in a way get used to it. Or rather, you expect it to be cold. So when it finally warms up into the 30's from the 0's or 10's, by comparison it feels warm out! But when it was 70 degrees around New Years and then drops to the 20's, you think you're going to die! Enough about that boring stuff though.
I bring you more of my backyard:
I have passed a great milestone/anniversary this week. It has been one whole year since I've cut my hair! You're probably looking at my short hair thinking 'how pathetic', but last January I cut it all off a la Rosemary's Baby style. It was the dumbest choice I made all year, not because I don't like that look but because I instantly started growing it back out practically the day after I got it cut. It's also been about that long since I've straightened my hair, which is a break my hair desperately needed. Never in my entire life have I gone a whole year without a cut (well I've had the ends trimmed, but that's not a haircut). So whoo hoo for me!
The shirt I am wearing here is the shirt I've decided to wear when I do goat things in public, like go to the farmer's supply store. I have to blend in you know. Show up in ruffles or something and you'll get no respect!
coat and skirt- forever21

Looking back through my past posts just makes me realize it has been far too long since I've shown pictures of something I've made, so its time to change that! Expect to see some attempt at being crafty on here soon!
(p.s. the goats are good, we've begun herding them outside their pen, you know, freedom)
