New Cria and Furniture

It's been over a year since I've been able to share one of these with you!  This is Phabian.  He was born last Friday while I was gone.  The new owners are ecstatic.  Even though I have sold all my alpacas, 16 of them are still here while the owners build fences and everything else involved in having livestock.  They come over every day and care for them, and I've acquired some wonderful new friends.  They are also the amazing MICE that have done such wondrous things for me.
This is my old living room, before new windows or paint.
Last week, I wandered into a furniture store to waste time while I was waiting for an appointment.  I found, much to my delight, the couch that goes with my crazy, asymetrical chair.  It was on sale for half price, so how could I refuse?
But wait!  There's more!  Act now and you can get two for the same great price!  Yes, it's a sectional.
Hard to get the entire room, but you get the idea.  Yesterday, when returning from being at the Market all day, I had totally forgotten about my new furniture.  When I opened the door and walked in, it was such a delight!!!  I feel like Cleopatra.
My friend C has been gardening in my field this summer, and this is what I get to look out on.  It's been a rough year, with flowers not coming on until mid to late July.  Now it is September and they are at their peak, yet starting to droop in the hot weather.

I need to get ready for church, and then this afternoon will have to unpack the car from the Market.  Guess what I forgot to take yesterday?  Fiber to spin!!  You always forget at least one thing, but that takes the cake for me.  So, I had to knit a hat.

Hi Linda, it is so good to “see” you and hear how wonderfully your life is going. You are truly blessed, which I know YOU know. :-) Congrats on having the fun of a new cria, your crazy brother’s wedding (he looks like he belongs in MY family, LOL. Is that a wig or his real hair?) And of course, I am so glad you have found the company of T. May it go well for you two. I think of you often, fondly. Hugs, Cathy
