Back Again

I don't know why I have such a hard time keeping up to date with my postings, but I do.Since I last posted I have had back surgery in September, my palomino Quarter horse died Oct. 1st, got a new kitten Oct.2nd., had to have my little Angora goat, Houdini put down the day before Christmas because of Kidney stones.
I'm not working at this time. I was working as an LNA at the Sullivan County Nursing home in Unity, but got done there last February. Now I'm at home tending the animals I have left. I have 2 horses, 3 Angora goats, one Shetland/Icelandic ewe, 4 dogs and 2 cats.
I have been taking horseback riding lessons from Spinner Farm in Deering every Tuesday morning.
Wednesday evenings I have a group of ladies that come at 7:00 pm and we spin or knit ,enjoy snacks and each others company.
The first Sunday of every month it's off to Newport for the Sugar River Spinning group , the second Thursday of the month is for knitting at the Fiber Studo with the Needles & Shuttles Fiber Guild, and the 3rd Tuesday it's knitting at the Antrim library.
At this time I'm trying to get prepared for the NH Sheep & Wool Festival, where I have a booth. So it's lots of dyeing, spinning, knitting,etc.
Monday,I will be looking at another horse to see if it's suitable for me to ride.
