Catching up!

It has been for ever since my last post but I guess you could see that. It is not that I have not been blogging, I do that daily but just reading everyone elses fun blogs. I found a great blog or should I say blogs today. Sage, a farmgirl friend from Mary Janes Farm (I will try to link to her if I haven't forgotten how) has the best blog. I feel that we should be sisters, I guess we are farmgirl sisters!! She gardens and cooks and hangs her laundry outside to dry and so on and so forth just like me. I just don't feel that my life is interesting enough to bore all of you.

I am not working outside the home anymore for a few weeks now and loving it. My dh is also happy now but not at first. I had a job offer today doing home health nursing and he said "You did tell them you did not need a job didn't you?" Well I called them back then and told them "No". I am too busy to work!!

My farm is hopping now. I am milking Saphira and that is a lot of fun when I can keep her from kicking over the milk pail!! About 1/2 gallon of GREAT milk a day! I also have a 2 week old baby calf, a Jersey bull calf that is on the bottle. It takes a good chunk of time with twice daily milking and bottle feeding and then I have the other 3 goats and 20 chickens, 2 cats and Frankie.

BTW Frankie is doing really well now. He occasionally gets wore out and will sort of stumble but will rest a little and be ready to go again full blast. Dr Mitzi said she was really proud of us helping him out and not giving up on him like so many folks usually did.

I have really been working a lot outside in my flowers too. The veggie garden is just getting started, just getting warm enough. Oh yeah and did I forget to tell you about the mowing!!!! We have so many little obstacles and hills and gulleys ands obstacles and buildings and more obstacles. Needless to say that is what consumes one day a week!! It should all be pasture for the animals. Oh yeah and I always keep trying to get my old wringer to work long enough to wash a full weeks wash to no avail as of yet. Maybe tomorrow weather permitting, we just replaced a belt this time, we will soon have a new machine if we keep it up. Of course I have the new set of W&D inside but they are no fun!!

I have done a little sewing a couple weeks ago. 2 pair of really cute wide leg capri/gauchos, a pair of wear around the house shorts and some milk straining cloths. I have many more projects that I wish to do someday, oneday, anyday,,,,please,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

I will take pics.

My mother got her arm hung in one when I was four and it was just me there with her. It broke her arm too. I have heard people talk a lot lately of getting long hair caught in it. Mine is fairly short now, good thing right?
