Well, I truly sucked at getting goals done for 2014.. It started good but life got rough..
Raither then focus on what I did not get done.. how about we have a look at what did get done!
A new Partner entered my life, Caleb joined the farm, Brandy Girl officially became the hubby horse. Caleb is working hard at being the OTHER man in my life. I attended my first horse clinic and also went on my first pink cancer ride, it was the first time I have ridden with hundreds plus horse and rider teams.
We added in a new Ewe.. Polar Ice
A new Ram.. Whiskey Jack
On the pig front, we added in Apple and Ella
We also added in some new rabbits, and hatched chicks and ducklings and of course adorable lambs..
and last but by no means least, Sunny D joined the farm..
We had a amazing garden year.. very productive
our new raspberry patch surprised us with a very reasonable first year harvest, the berries were outstanding!
We grew sweet potatoes for the first time..
With all the new during the year came loss.. some expected in the sense of regular farming life, and some hovering on the edges, due to health or age related issues..
My beloved Step-Dad Ken passed away in the fall, pretty much taking up the fall in terms of hubby running the farm and myself being out with my mother..
However on a critter note, it was a very rough year indeed, we lost much loved pets this year, more then I would have wanted in such a short time..
Our sweet munchkin passed away on her 14th year with us..
Our beloved lily also passed away at the age of 14 and half, I will be honest, I knew I would miss her but its felt more then I expected, while Sunny has to a point filled the gap that munchkin left.. the miss piece to my hound family is very much a wound yet.
We did not get the work on the house done near to the degree wanted, we did not get many things done due to ill health on my part mainly..
But we did get a few fun things done.. hubby was published again, did interviews on the radio about his writing etc
And I made it comic-con to meet and get my photo taken with a favorite actor of mine while most know him from Lord of the rings for me… Lord Vacco from Riddick and Judge Dredd! O YA!
Cheers to all my readers.. 2014 is almost behind us and a new year is coming..
