Playing on rocks with the dogs, Studies in progress, and We are expecting!

“We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.”

George Bernard Shaw

I've done a few tulip studies and have a cat study going but they are rough and not ready for posting.  Why tulips when they are out of season?  Tulips are my favorite flower but I never see them planted, only in Publix supermarket, so they are always out of season for me :( (most fleshy/bulb  flowers don't survive Florida's harsh sun nor like the sandy soil). I'm working on some new ideas, slowly, too slowly.  

In other news,  my goat Phoebe has been bred and if all goes well I will have my first kid/s in late January's chill.  I'm excited about the kid and about having my own goat milk.  It all seems like it should be so natural and easy, but this new experience will involve a number of challenges.  My other doe will be bred soon too.  Once I have my own milk I think we will invest in a small fridge I can dedicate to aging cheeses so I can go beyond the fresh ones.
