Crazy busy world

I’m back home. I eventually found my front door after buses, cancelled flights and a shared car hire back to Northern CA. The shop is alive once more, as are my dye pots, and the big list of emails to reply to… I will get to yours soon, I promise! Also to catch up on are the ever changing tasks of life – the chicks are bigger, plants are growing, and summer is coming!!

I find I always have a new kick when coming back home from being away a while – I have a new spark of enthusiasm and drive. Today I am focusing on completing all those niggly annoying little jobs whilst I feel so good, and I’m organising, organising, organising. I’m enjoying feeling successful and productive at this moment.

This increase in activity might also be for another reason : I have come home to a crazy busy life. Work on the farm is increasing at a rapid rate – Mister and I are goat dairy farmers. We are coming up to kidding season [we bred late this season] and that means milking, lots of little mouths to feed, and too few hours in the day.

As I go to join him out in the pastures I am hoping that initially it won’t affect my work here. I have a rough plan for the rest of the year and will continue to update my products, release new patterns and yarn collections as usual, but I have a feeling the blogging might slip a little. What else might it mean? Lots of cute pictures of baby goats!.. I’m pretty sure you’re not complaining.

And so begins May…



  1. Welcome home, Annie! Life is most definitely full at chez annie-claire and it all looks wonderful. If you need any help (remotely, of course), just give a shout!

  2. That’s a lot of goats! You have my dream thing going on. More goats than I might do, but lovely life. Busy but fulfilling I bet! Have fun getting your groove back on. 🙂

    • thank you, i will! sure it can take the wind out of you, but like you said, its one most fulfilling thing I’ve done with my life yet… and then there is knitting 🙂
