Every time you feel in God's creatures something pleasing and attractive, do not let your attention be arrested by them alone, but, passing them by, transfer your thought to God and say: "O my God, if Thy creations are so full of beauty, delight and joy, how infinitely more full of beauty, delight and joy art Thou Thyself, Creator of all!
- Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain

You can’t get to joy by making everything perfect. You can only get there by seeing in every imperfection all that’s joy.

Introducing Starlight

Pansy desperatley needed a friend, so yesterday I made the trip to Hibbing again to get Starlight. She's a lovely little doe with good dairy conformation. I'm really thrilled to have her. Because her owner had a vet bill with Violette (who did need her teeth worked on) she decided to sell another doe to make up for the bill. I'm really looking forward to seeing what kind of milk producing potential we've got. I'm hoping for some doe kids by spring (after I find a good buck to get them bred with). Hopefully now that Pansy has a friend I'll be able to get some work done. She just wouldn't eat unless a person was with her, and not at all by the time I left to get Starlight. After we put Starlight in with her she started eating right away. Silly girl...


  1. Critters are funny that way, huh? Our calf won't drink his milk out of the bucket if we are standing too close.

  2. Welcome, Starlight! So, so glad you were able to get Pansy the friend she needed. Now all is well on your homestead!

  3. Silly girl, indeed! Welcome to the bunch. :) They look like a happy pair. :)

  4. Very pretty! Pansy didn't have to wait long at all!

  5. Hey ladies! Yes, things are going well. Now I can get other things done. I do wish I had a video of when they met. They were really butting heads for a while! It made a pretty good thunk when they connected, but they seem fine now. :)
