Bye Bye Poop

I just went out on the deck to take pictures of Hedda and the hat that I just finished ↓ and look who's here with their tractor. That's Ben and his dad, Dave, here to haul off my winter's worth of alpaca and horse manure. ♪♫♪ EEE HAW ♫♪♫ I'll bet they just went home to get their skid loader. See, I'm telling all of you that life is good and those worrisome things will get taken care of. Aren't I so fortunate to have friends to help me out? I'm reasonably sure that he won't ever see this post, but Thank You, Ben - again and again - for all the things that you quietly do to make my life so complete.

And here's Hedda on a post of my deck posing for an addition to my Etsy store - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23614025. I do enjoy knitting hats and they sell well around Christmas. The fall that I quit smoking, let's see, 3 years ago, I think, every time that I wanted to pick up a cigarette, I would pick up my knitting needles instead. I think I made about 30 hats in September and October.

I love the hat. It looks great.

BTW, you might want to fix the link for colorful yarn. It isn't working.

What a pretty hat! Love the colors and it will definitely make someone cheery during the winter. :-)

It's so wonderful to be blessed with friends like that. Especially ones who don't mind dirty work. ;-)

How wonderful to have all your poop gone! Wish he'd come over to our place and get some. lol. We keep meaning to start selling ours, but life keeps us so busy...

Love the hat. Great colors!

Love the hat, Maple. I make a million of them, too, for my farm store.
Hey, you have great neighbors. You know how we get rid of our poop? I post on Craigslist. Free alpaca poop, you haul. They come out in droves. In fact, we just sold our manure spreader since we haven't used it in 5 years.
