Not my alpacas.....
Sadly the two adorable animals in my title image are not mine. I borrowed the image due to it's cuteness overload factor. I will soon be a part of the alpaca industry, one way or another. I'm a full time music teacher, so no, I won't be wearing overalls and carrying a pitch fork any time soon. But, through the awesomeness of alpaca farmers in my area I found a farm where I can board animals. I'm going to a seminar tomorrow to learn about the industry and will be looking animals for possible purchase next weekend. I can't friggin wait! I only recently learned about alpaca farming, right after I got into spinning my own yarn, which was about a month ago. Since then I've gone from being fascinated to wanting alpacas more than I've ever wanted anything else before. So, tomorrow I learn more about alpaca farming, and hopefully in the next few weeks I have a pic of my own animal posted here.
I'm a dog walker and dog trainer (now), among other things. I teach a little music part time too. I'm also a knitter, a spinner, and I'm very committed to fitness. I'm married to an amazing man who is supportive of all of my projects, especially my new venture into alpacas. Oh, and I'm also a huge fan of Lost, the tv show on ABC.
Spoilers ahead, if you haven't seen the most recent episode of Lost, don't continue reading. This week's theory comes to you courtesy of The Transmission, a Lost Podcast available on iTunes.
Locke was not Locke long before we realized it. As far back as season three. Back when he blew up the submarine, and had those interesting verbal sparring matches with Ben, Locke was really the anti-Jacob.
