Be careful of what you wish for.

Be careful of what you wish for because sometimes you get more than what you wanted. After my mini-meltdown on Sunday missing my former right hand chore helper, Gel, I wrote the girl whom I had sent Rex to over the winter. Wally and I traveled to Virginia to pick up Rex who is an […]

Rain

Last year we had the driveway scraped and more asphalt put down. It has done well until we had the past couple of days of storms. That goes to show how long it’s been since we’ve had a “gully washer” type of rain fall. More is forecast for Wednesday. I don’t like that the driveway […]

Missing Gel

I think I may just be overtired or something but on Sunday Wally and I ran into someone who brought memories of Gel flooding back. I’ve passed by his grave on several occasions over the past couple of days and his loss stabs me in the stomach. I actually feel physically sick this morning. It’s […]

I need to skip this week

Not that I want to skip any second that I’m alive but to think about dealing with losing an hour’s sleep and dealing with temperatures in the low twenties. Not liking it. Glad the goats aren’t due to kid for another week or two. Soon – this is what I’ll be seeing! I am excited […]

The Best Laid Plans

The best laid plans don’t always work out. We intended to work on the siding of our new barn on Saturday but it was cold and Wally’s hands were hurting so we elected instead to clean out the ShelterLogic so the goats could use that during the pending snow storm. It wasn’t just a matter […]
