Speaking of the weekend-it was lovely!
Friday brought around a decision to get a goat. Of course, the decision was spurred on by two things: Beer in an unspecified amount, and this picture from Twisted Vines Farm:
But I digress. I did not get said goat. As much as I would love a fuzzy critter crapping in my back yard, I do have neighbors, and a job. I did have some very salient points though, had my drunken decision resulted in goat-buying. For instance, I would tell my neighbors:
- He IS wearing a scarf. He is clearly a civilized goat, not like that sneaky goat behind him!
- He could be a she (I didn't check into it that much), if that were the case, there could be milk.
- If there was milk, then there could be cheese!
- I could make yarn (or is that just sheep? Hmm...it is pretty apparent that I didn't plan this out)
- If its a boy goat, then, he would be fierce and goat-manly and defend things. He could be a security goat.
- He would eat weeds - this may be the only well thought out and truthful item on here.
This list really could go on and on, but I don't know that the above holds many sell-worthy points, other than I really want a goat and will make up stories about him/her to get to keep it. So, my thought on it is this: Plan to get a farm. Its been a goal, but I think my desire to have Chewy (yea, the goat has a name, a very fitting one thank you very much!) proves that I should start mapping that out!
So...back to the weekend!
Saturday was spent crafting and resting up after a long night of goat-plotting. I went to a scrapbooking party with Sarah and Krissie (check her blog out, BTW- http://strictlystampin.wordpress.com/). Since I was way up north, I decided to hit up Smashing Rubbish vintage goods (http://www.smashingrubbish.blogspot.com), for this-a giant palmistry hand! I think it goes well with my weird painting and antique typewriter, no?
I saw it on their site and when I found out it was only $18, I had to have it :). What, you ask, does one do with a giant palmistry hand? Ummm. Well, I could see if a goat was in my future. See? I can find a reason for anything.
Other highlights of the weekend: In no particular order, or that I should be proud of:
- I may have subsisted on cured meat all weekend. Between the landjager, fish jerky and corned beef, It's no surprise I didn't feel well on Sunday.
- I took this as a sign (possibly from the palmistry hand) that I should rest all day Sunday.
- I got through the backlog of craft magazines that have been sitting on my bedside table
- I discovered the show, "Freaks and Geeks".
So, what's on tap for this week? Loretta's tonight, to meet new neighbors and have a pint; wine tasting in downtown on Wednesday; some over time at work on Thursday, and Baron-my beacon of happiness on Friday. Between these adventures, I'll also be finishing the binding on the quilt, and starting a embroidery project.
All in all, I'll call this weekend and the upcoming week a win, goat or no goat.
PS-Note: there are no good goat quotes...So insert witty goat based thought here. :)
