My life is so varied; always has been. Lately, I've been splitting my time between school (Kutztown University), work (where I teach), home, farm, and occasional short road trips. I don't get many chances for those, unfortunately.
Kutztown provides lots of inspiration for teaching. They have a student exhibit of recycled works on display right now...coincidentally, exactly when I'm teaching that unit in school. I'm enjoying their over-the-top solutions:

We've been battling pinkeye this last week. My poor little doe Faith went out to be bred, and may have carried it home with her. While she's unaffected, 4 of our older does came down with the affliction, and had to be separated from the herd. I've been giving injections, applying ointment, and hand milking those girls all week. Poor things! Our two senior citizens, Dolly and Jazzy have been hit the hardest. There is improvement, though. And we've finished the course of antibiotics, so only time will tell.
These girls weren't affected. Neither were their appetites!

Meanwhile, back in the goat pen, our calf Pumpkin is having an identity crisis.

Then there's home. When I'm not reading, grading, or writing, I still love my kitchen, especially now that Peter has finished the new counter and back splash. I'm bringing in the last herbs. Hobie helped with the peppermint.
