Some Odds and Ends

With the three weeks of steady rain here in Northern California and some personal stuff going on, we've not been able to travel like we had planned so.... here's some fun stuff to look at until we head off to Chico next week to hang out at the Sierra Nevada Brewery for some tours and tasting.
Weather, goats, birthdays, zydeco, a movie, breadmaking, a new tool pegboard and a 60 year old guy running.... Lots to look at...enjoy all the photos.

Looking our our front window, south, with the rain clouds coming.

We've got some Groucho Marx disguises so we can go to the brewery multiple times during the day...hiccup.
Now...for the REALLY fun stuff...
Kim offered to help out with a local goat farm. She spent the day feeding over 50 baby goats (called kids).

Sarah, the owner, milking some momma goats. She makes goat milk soap which Kim LOVES.

So tiny. Kim picked them under her arms to feed them. She called them "her footballs".

It was also Kim's birthday in February and my Dad's in March. I got Kim a handmade rubboard from Louisiana and we took Dad out to breakfast for his 89th birthday.

Unwrapping the box.

She was so not expecting it. You can see how much fun she had playing it in the video below. Oh, and notice we still have our artificial tree up.


We bought a Breadman breadmaking machine at a garage sale for $2 !! ...and watched in amazement as the bread got mixed.

KIm is praying for it to Rise, Rise, Rise!

Clever way to hold it in place while I secure it to the wall.



For the first time in 5 years, I stayed in shape during the winter...zooooooom.
