Sunny Afternoons

Everybody loves the bright afternoon sun we get here in our new place. There's always a jockeying for position on the coffee table, couch...

...even the bookshelf, which is popular enough we've added a little piece of carpet to one of the shelves for kitty comfort.

Lila puppy (our possibly-permanent houseguest) looks up expectantly, hoping we'll move the sun around to the couch so she can get comfy. All in due time, puppy, all in due time. :)

Happy Cows, more milk?

It makes sense, really. A cow that doesn't feel like "just a number", produces significantly more milk in it's lifetime than a cow that's shoved in a stall and basically ignored.

So cows, like people, like to feel noticed and appreciated. :) It leads to more productivity, which is good for both businesses AND people (and cows!). Good stuff all around!

Read a little more about it on CNN.

Merry Ukrainian Christmas

Things still haven't gotten to what one would call a steady, regular pace here in our new home - I hope to reorganize in the new year and get back to regular blogging updates! Sorry it's been so long!

Had a lovely haddock dinner for Ukrainian Christmas eve - haddock encrusted with parsley, served with roasted garlic on the side. Yummy!

Krystos Razdayetsia everyone!
