Cleaning up messes
Friday, August 26, 2016      15 comments

We had an intense training session on how to use a grain extrication tube and grain vac to remove persons caught in grain bins. It is a very common and deadly situation and too many farmers have died in grain bins when they enter to knoc... Read more
And the goats are gone
Monday, August 22, 2016      19 comments

It was relatively easy to move the goats out of the barn as one of the younger nannies took the lead and everyone else followed right into the trailer. The young vet sorted them in the trailer so it would be easy for him to unload them ... Read more
We finalized our decision with the goats
Sunday, August 21, 2016      19 comments

The newest vet is the area was willing to look at our goat herd and buy the goats we did not wish to keep. I spent most of an hour accessing the various nannies and chose those I wanted to keep and then DH and I helped catch the young ... Read more
Farmers Market update
Saturday, August 20, 2016      21 comments

Well. for all the hoopla about the weekend and why everyone would be having great sales at the market, DH found out differently. He was to stay until 5 pm. Not so bad but when the downtown parade started at 10 am, the crowds left, never ... Read more

I made Maxine mow the lawn
Thursday, August 18, 2016      14 comments

Since Maxine is such a good helper and has so many great ideas for staying busy, I put her on the mower just to see what she could do. Pretty good and she even fed the grass clippings to the neighbor's goats. I had a stove on the pickup ... Read more
Maxine on steroids
Wednesday, August 17, 2016      19 comments

It felt like I ran the Boston Marathon in just under 6 hours today. I started work extra early and was on the go the entire day. We had planned an evening meal with the next door neighbors but I made 2 batches of noodle dough before we... Read more

Making plans
Monday, August 15, 2016      19 comments

Although there is so much going on in the office, I made sure to tell SIL that we need to pick a day when his youngsters can come to grandma's house and learn how to make noodles too. I am sure the 2 of them will love it and AJ is sure t... Read more
Teaching another tradition

DH and I have been thinking of new ways to teach the GC some family traditions. Today we decided to let the local GD help make homemade noodles. I had the dough ready when they arrived and we talked about what we were looking for in a go... Read more
Pleasanter past times

Today DS was gone to the farmers market and it was a great day to clean house, do laundry, rummage through some of the closet to find things that need to be donated or discarded and just enjoy the quiet. An older couple came from Washing... Read more
The great chicken roundup
Saturday, August 13, 2016      22 comments

As long as I was working, it was fairly safe. What could happen? The phone would ring, I would have some service work to do. Piece of cake. I had a few clients in and most of their requests were easy to handle. But I had this ONE pers... Read more
