more alpaca yarn!

Life at adagio alpacas continues to be hectic! In the last couple of weeks we have done so much! We welcomed our wonderful au pair (oh wow, why didn't I do this before!?! My boy is so much happier and so much less mummy guilt about working!!!). We attended the Australian National Field Days and had some wonderful alpaca friends from Keiana Lodge staying here whilst they were exhibiting as well as some family!
Today I felt like it was Christmas or my birthday! When I went to the post office my yarn was waiting for me! We had sent to Fibre Naturally off Tux's 2012 cria fleece and Julie's 2012 fleece to see how they came back and I'm so pleased! I can't wait to start knitting! Now I just have to finish the vest I'm knitting so I can start something new! Will I be that patient? Probably not!

It has been exceptionally busy around here, I've returned to work after 4 months leave and it is taking time for us all to adjust to the new routine. My return to work also coincided with the start of daylight savings on the long weekend which was a difficult co-incidence for my 2 year old. It caused some major disruption to sleeping patterns for quite a while. Hopefully life with settle down a bit for a while!
Dusk was just so beautiful here that I grabbed the camera and took some photos! I found out that we can see the sun set over Mount Canobolas from our veggie patch, someone's tree must have come down so that we can now see through! Unfortunately it didn't photograph well. 
My Father-In-Law has been busy mowing so with the warm weather our lawns look amazing!

Gorgeous golden, butter wouldn't melt... Right?

From the look for Bartok you'd think that butter wouldn't melt... Right? Wrong! 
The dog that looks at me when getting into the car to go to the park and refuses to jump into the car because its just too hard to jump that high... can manage to break then scale the fence to escape into the paddock! 
Caught! I saw him do it this time and the fence is now fixed again!

Pullet needs to move out!

It's been funny having this chick living in my bathroom but it is nearly feathered enough to be outside overnight and I can't wait!
It seems the food is tastier around the back...
It is also looking like this chick is a pullet, contrary to my initial guess, no sign of a comb or other likely rooster signs. I'm quite happy about this since it really was hens we were after! Now we just need to source some more.. I think I'll invest a better incubator before I attempt to hatch chicks again!
