Busy With...

Garden – daily playing in the dirt.

Fencing – yeppers, with dear son’s help we expanded a goat pen and repaired one of the fences. (Totally by ourselves, proud as punch we are. Aches and pains where we never thought aches and pains would be but we did it.)

Cooking – dear son home = someone to cook for.

Spring Clean Up – tree limbs and branches, trash blown in from who knows where during the past week of storms.

Animals – Officially on baby watch now. New kids to arrive within the next 3-4 weeks. We may (that is a big maybe, the guys say this every year but none have ever arrived) be adding 2 bottle calves within the next week.

Fiber – sorting and washing fleece, soon to be carding.

Family – Dad and Sister are doing better. Mom now going to respiratory therapy 3 times a week

I'm glad your family is doing better, but I am sorry to see your Momma is having to have therapy.

What a wonderful post!! I especially like the "proud of yourselves" part on the fencing. Seems there are a million jobs and not enough time, but I understand the enjoyment of it all. Bottle calves??? I do that too with the goat milk. Boy do they ever grow!!!

Your life sounds a bit more smooth in this post, and that is good to hear. :)

Always something to do, and a lot of hard work, yet it is fulfilling.

Take care.

Congrats on the new pens, and I'll be thinking good thoughts for all the babies! Sorry I haven't been around as much as I would like ... crazy here, as you can imagine. But thinking of you!

Sounds like a wonderfully busy time. I always love when I have the right amount to do to be busy and enough time in between to enjoy the company of those also working.

Have fun having the son home!
