Drank more coffee. Ate some gingerbread warm with butter. And a couple of cookies. Put all the Christmas lights on. Then sat down here to write a bit.
As an end of the year musing I thought I would let you know "the rest of the story" as Paul Harvey used to say. When I left you last, I was looking forward to giving some spinning lessons to a woman. I did just that, as best I could, with the result of her becoming enthusiastic enough to go in search of a wheel to practice on. After the New Year I hope to get together with her again.
In August I had mentioned that I thought the hen we call "Baby" was becoming an egg eater. Well, after being very vigilant with collecting eggs and getting her to stay outdoors as much as possible, the egg eating pretty much stopped, so we kept her. She is still the odd chick out. There appears to be something wrong with her that the other hens know about (and I do not) as they shun her all the time. Since early summer she has had a rock hard abdomen which is not the norm. And as far as I know, she has never laid an egg, although I must admit to not always knowing which egg comes from which hen. At any rate, her unusual condition doesn't stop her from doing all the normal hen things, so I just keep an eye on her and life goes on.

We will see if I continue this blog in 2013. I began when it was suggested that having a blog is a good marketing ploy if you are an Etsy seller. However, only one of my Etsy sales could be linked to this! So I am not sold on that concept. The thing is, it gets habit forming. Well, time will tell. Meanwhile may you all have a Happy, Healthy and Blessed New Year.
