1:32, am.

Remember this little character?  He works well as an alarm clock too.

And, he’s got me thinking I’m a mother of a newborn again.  Except my newborns didn’t get up as much as he does in the night.

For the two nights we’ve had him, it goes like this, more or less.  Whine, pee, poop, eat, pea, poop, drink, play, sleep.  At the following times:

11:09 pm

1:32 am

3:05 am

4:56 am

Here’s what I was doing last night around 1:32 am. 

Watching Shadow attempt to warm up to Oso.  Oso growls.  Shadow whimpers, tries to growl back.

Shadow retreats.  Hides under the little wooden table to his right.  Fears Oso.

And, if he weren’t so darn cute, I’d be REALLY mad that I’m up at 1:32 am cleaning up after him, feeding him and watching him play.

With those blue eyes, he’s really going to be a hit with the ladies.

About The Goat Cheese Lady

I am Lindsey. At first I was a city girl. Growing up, the closest thing I had to farm animals were a cat and a cockatiel. In 2009, Herbert (my husband) and I bought our first milk goat and I instantly became an urban farmgirl, attempting to balance city and farm life..before I knew “urban homesteading” was a thing. That’s when we began The Goat Cheese Lady Farm, hence The Goat Cheese Lady blog you’re visiting now. After moving to the country in 2014, I embarked on life as a rural farmgirl. We continued teaching farm and cheesemaking classes, raising more goats and began construction on our cheese creamery. But life had other plans and in 2017, we decided that, due to financial and health issues, we had to close the farm for business. No more classes, no more creamery, a lot less milking. We went back to off farm jobs, I as an Occupational Therapist, Herbert in construction with his business, D&A Home Remodeling. At that point, I made a silent promise to myself that I would corral my entrepreneurial mind and focus on a job for a year. Well, it has been a year and I am back. Not to classes, cheese, soap or lotion, but back to writing. I love it. I’m not sure where it will lead me, but that’s where I’m starting. I’ll continue to write as The Goat Cheese Lady for now, and whatever the future holds, I’ll let you know. Our two boys are 14 and 11 and continue to be louder than my sister and I ever were. We have two dogs, Montaña and Flash, a cat, Jumpy, a flock of chickens and three goats. Yes, we still have Lucy, the goat who helped us start it all and was milked by over 1,000 people. She’s retired but still the boss. Chocolate provides enough milk for our family with some to spare for the dogs. Soccer friends, school friends, coyotes and mice are frequent visitors. There are way too many flies and every so often we see an owl. I’m glad you’re here. Sometimes you’ll laugh out loud, other times you’ll be inspired to appreciate the small things. My hope is that, over your morning cup of coffee or your afternoon work break, you’ll enjoy the antics and inspiration that are my daily life. Lindsey
