Fiber goats for sale

4 natural colored and 1 Pygora goat does for sale.
All must go together. Including the older matriarch.
Contact us at eweifarm @ for our customer's
contact information. I did not ask a price. That is strictly
between the buyer and the seller.
These are nice goats that have been great mothers,
with beautiful fiber. Life circumstances have changed
for the owners and they need to rehome these girls.

Life is full of good and bad

I've been saying a lot lately 'If it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all!' I am so glad with my eternal life I don't have to rely on luck, but God's grace. If I had to rely on luck to get me into Heaven, or even works, I'd fall WAY short!

This week we got hit by lightening. AGAIN! It was not a direct hit as this strike affected my neighbors up on the hill as well. It could have been much worse if it were not for the expensive surge protector that we bought after the last major lightening hit.

We were watching TV, when BAM! lightening struck somewhere in our area. The sky lit up and the TV sparked. A repairman from TDS Telecom. came out late yesterday and replaced our WiFi modem, the DVR (with all 8 of the Harry Potter movies recorded on it 😢as well as a dozen new recorded shows we've not had a chance to see yet), and the 3 HDMI cords. The only damage to the TV thankful is 2 out of 5 ports for the HDMI are fried. As is the HDMI port on this computer. Thankfully, I still have my monitor and this computer can go either cable or screw on connector. (I do not remember what it is called.)

So, we did have some luck in not having to replace the TV and the computer, but I will need to buy another $80 surge protector at some point.

I am walking more and more, even though it is still very painful. I am thrilled to be on 2 legs more than on 4 wheels. I still use the chair around the house, mainly because the foot and ankle still swell a LOT. But, I do walk when I get the opportunity.

I won't be walking a lot this weekend though. I will take the chair with us, and I will use it instead of the cane when I have to walk somewhere. This weekend is the 30th VT. Sheep & Wool Festival. I am hoping that we have sales like we've had the last 2 years. With me not working (19 months and a week at this point), every penny helps to support the farm.

Next weekend is the 35th annual Wool Arts Tour. We will be in our usual spot in Deering, NH at Spinner Farm. This could be our last year vending at tour. Leslie and Steve's farm is for sale, and if the new owners don't care to be a stop, we will be done. This is the only spot with indoor booth spaces. I am getting too old to be setting up and taking down an EZ-Up twice during the weekend. As well as setting up the booth and tearing it down again. But, I wish them lots of luck finding the right buyer for their farm!!

Apple Pie Crafts Fair

This was a first for us. Usually I'd be at the Wilmot Farmer's Market, but another vendor recommended that I'd really want to do this. I am glad I did. And, I am most thankful that my friend Katherine Balch from Sew Unique agreed to vend with me. She, and later her husband, did all the heavy lifting. The farm made enough to buy 9 bags of grain. Thank you to all who purchased from us!!! We will be back next year!
