Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.
Before every great undertaking, there is a time of reflection and growth, yes? Time in the chrysalis, in a way.
Well, you guys have kept me hopping this winter. I've loved every second of it, too.
I've had some big announcements on the horizon, but haven't wanted to really get them out there until I was sure of all the details.
I'm still working on some of them. *facepalm*
HOWEVER! I do have an announcement--or at least, half an announcement. Or a veiled announcement. Or something like that.
In a nutshell, Heartfire Massage will be expanding this spring.
That's right. We're growing. Me, who has adamantly voiced my non-desire to move into management . . . seems to be moving in that direction.
There are, after all, only so many massages I can do in a day. And I want nothing but the best for you guys. (Cause, y'know, you ROCK.)
But . . . the opportunity has shown itself, and it's kind of a now-or-never sort of thing.
No, I'm not ready to unleash all of the details just yet. But I wanted you guys to know that there is something really cool coming up.
So, this is just a quickie to let all of you out there know that I haven't forgotten about you, I'm still alive and breathing (and massaging!), and that I've got some really fantastic stuff coming down the pike.
So watch this space. I'll be unleashing the full details in another couple of weeks.
Oh yeah--the important stuff
I've had a number of questions about this, so figured it was only proper that I answer.
Yes, the goats are fine.
Ben is doing okay. He's still recovering from his late-December knee surgery, but he's out on the deck now instead of in our basement. I think this makes everyone much happier.
The chickens are fine. We still have three roosters that need to go into the freezer, but butchering is such a laborious pain. We're not buying any more this year (once the Three Wise Men go into the deep sleep, that will leave only two hens and one rooster), but we're going to see if we can hatch some.
So--no additional goats. No additional rabbits. Doing good with just one dog and the cat. Maaaaaaybe some more chickens.
We'll see what shakes out.
In the meantime . . .
Ya'll be well, and stay out of trouble.
As much as you can, anyway.
