Stupid trick of the day

I told Wally I’d run an errand for him today and while I was out doing that errand I planned to run a few of my own.  I did a good bit of house cleaning, then cleaned myself up enough so I’d be reasonably presentable and headed out to the car.  Got in it and […]

Soggy!!!!

It is disgustingly humid here.  We’ve had rain almost every day now for at least a week.  I am not complaining, really I’m not.  I’d much rather have it rain than not, but it’s soggy and oppressive.  I’m in the middle of trying to get the house cleaned and I took a quick break to […]

Using up the goat milk

I am getting way more goat milk than we can use so I’m trying to find creative ways to use it up.  Of course Basil is drinking it.  I am feeding him approximately 22 ounces three to four times a day, but that hardly puts a dent in the milk the goats are producing.  I […]

Fern’s back!

Used her to put the sheep up last night and she was back to her usual self.  I dosed her with Lycopodium about a week ago now.  Lyc is a slow, long-acting remedy so it doesn’t surprise me that I didn’t see improvement right away.  While we were heading out, Rose was doing her best […]

Monday, Monday, Monday

I feel sure I am in a dream and I’m really not sitting here at 6:11 AM with the whole day ahead of me, a whole day without real, paying work that is. A few jobs for which I am qualified have come up recently.  Lowes has a real estate paralegal position open.  Another title […]
