We had a very productive, but still restful weekend. The major accomplishment was getting the back part of the pasture fenced using electric fence. Hopefully it will work and will keep the goats in. We’ll know for sure in a few days. Also got about seven loads of laundry washed, hung out on the line to dry, folded and put away; with all the rain we had last week, I didn’t get any laundry done during the week. There’s little rain in the immediate forecast so hopefully we can get some garden work done this evening, well, I’ll work in the garden, Wally will mow the lawn. The spring crop all but bombed out and it’s almost time to plant early summer vegetables so I don’t want to screw that up. I managed to get up a little earlier this morning than I have been getting up so hopefully I can get the chores done and get to work on time. The new general manager starts today. It will be interesting to see what, if any, changes take place. I’m sort of thinking that there will not be a whole lot of change. Having the two days off seems to be what I need to recharge my batteries enough so I’m not so ragged going into work so maybe it won’t bother me so much.
I’ve received numerous calls from people wanting to buy dairy goats. I’ve turned them all down. I just get the feeling that we should hold on to what we have and see what happens in the future. Things just don’t seem right to me and I don’t want to let go of what we’ve worked so hard to get just because it’s a bit inconvenient to milk eight goats and one cow.
I rode Rosie on Sunday and had a good ride, but my muscles are complaining a bit this morning.
I best get back to getting things done so I can get out to milk and get things done so I don’t have to run like a fool to get to work on time.
Until later …
