March Goat Milk Soap Thank You Pack

On this bright and beautiful March day, with green grass sprouting, the world is full of new things, and good news.

As I have been saying, and I am far from being an expert, I think we will see our economy on an upswing. I developed the attitude to not worry. Why worry? Worry does not change a thing. Well, let's back into that, worry does change our happiness. It does change our demeanor. But worry does not change the circumstances that led to the problem. And, as I have been saying, I encourage everyone to be creative, if you feel you want to be, start that Etsy store, fire up a website, promote your hand-crafted products in a farmer's market, or start a small business. You will be in the train car on the down side and you will be in the front car on the swing back up. For about a week the "experts" have been reporting that the economy is strengthening. I am not worried. I do hope people begin to rebuild their lives, however (those that have lost jobs and homes). But whatever it brings, be happy, do not worry.

On this bright and beautiful day it is good to see the animals outside, enjoying the sun. Occasionally stopping to munch, as Aleecia is in this photo. But more often I see the girls kicking up their heels and playing chase across their lot. Carefree worry-less animals!

And on this bright and beautiful spring day I am announcing a package on the way to Florida, destination Casa Hice. A random pick of commenters on this blog resulted in pulling Alix's name from the hat. Thank you, Alix. Her package consists of one of her favorite scents, a lilac based soap, and a lilac goat milk lotion, very fitting for spring. I see my lilac bushes are budding out green today, and I cannot wait to smell their scent in a month or so! I agree with Alix, a very nice scent.

Thank you everyone!

The Nubian in this picture reminds of our sweet Nubian doe named Nikki, we'll miss her dearly! Isn't it gorgeous outside.

Jennifer, thank you!

Amy, Aleecia came from a reverse spotted nubian doe (light brown and tan).

Yes, it is gorgeous outside. We are being spoiled!

The leather chest in the previous post is a treasure! And your goat looks a lot like my Jacob sheep, now that they are all shorn....

Uplifting and encouraging post. Thank-you!

We in the Pacific Northwest are in for a deluge....but we need the rain , so that is a happy thing, however, your weather does make me yearn for spring.

I agree about not worrying. And I know that sometimes that is hard to do admist all the problems.

Aleecia is adorable.

The rain has finally subsided here in SC, now if the temps would just start rising a little more, I'll be happy.
