Sneak peaks, surprises, and boys named Lola
Well, it turns out I haven't been being as productive as I'd like to be, but I suppose I'm getting there. My problem is never a lack of ideas, it's quite the opposite...too many ideas and plans! I can't stick to one thing long enough to plan it through all the way. I will come up with something, research it for ever, and then move on and have to start all over when I come back to the first idea. I need to be more organized and carry a notebook around for when I think of new things I guess. I've been working on a few new ideas for the shop, and here's a few pictures of one of those ideas! I should have these feather clips up in a couple of days, so keep your eyes peeled. I really like these because they're just hair clips so they're really easy to wear.
And now, on a more serious note, we discovered something earth shattering today. Montgomery is a girl. The people we got the goats from told Patrick the blue eyed one was a girl and the brown eyed a boy, so we just never gave it a second thought. I thought maybe goats were like kittens where it's hard to tell when they're younger. Well we finally studied some diagrams today in my goat books from the library and discovered, oh no, the differences between male and female goats are extremely obvious. Ha! We were about to take Monty in a few days to the vet to get 'his' pre-surgery shot (you know, for the boy kind of surgery). I almost wish we hadn't have found out until we were at the vet, because they would all be rolling on the floor with laughter. So yes, Monty is a lady. At least we didn't find out Lola was a boy... a boy named Lola would never be taken seriously.
