And I’m geekier than before! Oh, and because I just have to ask…
Did you miss me? 😀
See? Geekier. I guess two years will do that to a person. I’ve got a new (ish) little brother who turned two recently, Sherlock’s come back from the dead, The Doctor has regenerated, a fifth Molly Fyde book is in progress, and Dust has been out since August. And boy, was that last one traumatic. A trip straight to Feelsville. You go into it like this:
…And you come out like this:
But it’s a REALLY GOOD BOOK.
I also discovered Jane Austen fanfiction. Shannon Hale’s Austenland and Midnight in Austenland in particular. I’ve only read the second one so far, but judging by how good the movie is, the first one has got to be good. I mean, just look at this:
It’s the dumbest movie ever, but it’s just as quotable as any of the original Jane Austen books/movies.
Also, we’re trying to move halfway across the country. All nine of us, along with (hopefully, if we can wrangle things properly) a few chickens, a duck, two dogs, two cats and four to six sheep. Fun, right? The process so far has been… Interesting. We’ve packed up quite a few boxes of books, and some milking equipment, sold our cows (YAY! I didn’t like those cows…) and Dad taught me and Evelyn how to redo ductwork so that, a week or two ago, the two of us were able to get all the kitchen ductwork up. As Evelyn said on her blog, Major Empowered Female points! 😉
Another big hurdle we’re going to have to jump over in the moving process though, is what to do with all the sheep we’re not going to keep. Now that lambing season is (hopefully) over, we have twenty-something sheep, three of them (Edison, Dangerous Beans, and Hermes) rams, and another two (Sherlock and Moriarty) ram lambs. Moriarty we might eat, or sell as a weather along with all our other rams, but Sherlock we’re thinking of keeping, as he is A., Our ewe Olivia’s son (Her wool is absolutely DREAMY); B., grandson of another ewe named Martha, who’s wool was WONDERFUL, and C., the son of Hermes, who also has nice wool. Therefore, good genetics all around!
Other than the rams, we don’t really know what we’re going to do with our sheep, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.
Anyway, my duck is running away from the lawn mower, Baby Matthew is carrying a bowl of something into the living room, and my computer is starting to run like a dinosaur, so that’s all, folks! But I promise to try to do a little bit better about this blogging thing. 😉
