It’s Wednesday, and you know that means a quick up-date so we can get to choir rehearsal. Wanted to talk about a few things from the weekend. Sometimes it’s funny how the days run together, and I have a hard time remembering exactly when something specific happened. I have to think about what else was going on to keep the happenings in their proper position. Let’s see how I do. Chances are, I may have talked about this, but, perhaps not. Continue reading
I really just want to take a moment to say, “Thank you.” Thank you to all of you who follow this blog. It always surprises me when I get a notification that someone has “liked” the blog, or that comments have been posted. People follow via e-mail, Facebook page, and directly on WordPress. My Aunt Carolyn consistently like’s and shares our post -which is so sweet. I’m sure her friends wonder why the heck she does that, but I appreciate her support! Continue reading
Finally. We’re at Friday. Monday I promised you so much and I will not be able to deliver. I did take a couple of photos, Sue sent me a photo, but there isn’t a whole lot of new to talk about. I’ll sum up the last couple of days, and talk about the weekend, finish off – at the last -with a cute shot for going into the weekend. Let’s get cracking. Continue reading
Some days are just difficult. Doesn’t matter how you prepare for them or what you tell yourself, it’s just hard. We’re having a hard time with Taco-George. You know that he’s been sick for a bit and the most difficult thing has been that we have not been able to find a vet in the area that will even look at goats. Large animal doctors don’t want to deal with them, and the small animal mobile vets say they only do cats and dogs. Finally today, one of the guys a Jem’s Feed Store was able to give Sue a name of someone to come look. She’s on her way from Tucson now; we’ll see what she says. Continue reading
So sorry everyone. Very long work day- home for just a bit and then off the rehearsal. I didn’t even think about posting until just now 8:53 pm – now it is time for bed, so I’ll catch you up tomorrow.
Quiet here- wishing you a safe evening tonight and a very happy 2019!
This is fun: end of the year egg report… 2018= 8,467 eggs. That’s 705.583 dozen! That include ducks, geese, and all chicken eggs that were collected all year. Not a bad year. Here’s to more in 2019.
I want to thank all of you, near and far, who are curious enough to tune in and read what’s going on in our small corner of the world. I love to get your feedback on the blog or on the Facebook posts. You so often make my day with your kind words. Please continue to join us on the journey! I’m sure there will be many more in 2019. Until then, as always~
Thanks for reading!
Wishing you all a joyous Christmas filled with family and friends!
Does that sound like something from Lord of the Rings? Wait, I think that was King Under the Mountain. (thought I could make something of that for the first image, but couldn’t find anything that really works). The storm that was a comin’ finally arrived this morning. It poured on and off all day, and when the clouds cleared a bit Sue was able to snap a quick shot of the snow on the mountains. This is our second snow of the winter; not that it reached us. We’re at a pretty high elevation, but the snow was staying over 5,000 feet. Sure looks pretty though. Is this where we start singing “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas”? Continue reading
A little while ago, one of our sweet followers nominated us for a blogger recognition award – which is amazing! I was just blown away! I want to thank Robin at https://haphazardhomemaker.com for nominating us for the recognition. With that nomination comes a few rules, so I’m taking some time now to finally comply. Continue reading
So just a quick report on what Sue’s been up to the last couple of days. As you know, Vicente and his new flock of girls have been in with the goats a couple of days now. Today was the day they got to be let out in their new home. Sue reworked a door for the chickens because there was just too much that could go wrong with the door that we were going to use at first. There would have had to be another ramp installed, and then the goats would have wanted to jumps on it and play around with it… it was just better to create a new door that the chickens can use for in and out privileges, but the goats would not be able to use – or abuse – at all. In this photo you can see the little door at the bottom, cut into the bigger people door. It works like a dog door – and there is a cover that can be put into the guides on either side that covers the door for evening. Continue reading
