Just a note that I am still here! I can't believe it's been a week since I last posted! I've been meaning to blog every day, but I've been so busy that I just haven't had time... I always plan on doing it after evening barn chores, and then find that by the time I'm done with all of that, I'm too bushed to write coherently. Shame on me.
I'm actually supposed to be outside doing the evening milking right now (it's 7:45pm and the cow is bellowing!) but I'm waiting for a gooseberry pie to come out of the oven before I go. Wouldn't want to burn that delectable dessert now would I? ;)
In a span of a week, what's happened? Oh good heavens... You wouldn't believe it. My new Salatin-style chicken tractor was just finished today (such a beautiful beast it is, too!), I sold Heidi (I know, I know... You want the story on that), am getting a new goat on Saturday (quite unexpectedly! I honestly wasn't goat shopping at all!), sold Snickers and Frodo, tore down an old building on the 98 acres with the help of friends and family, sold almost all of my herdshares, got an offer to be a farm manager for a nearby 20 acre parcel (have no idea if I'll take the folks up on the offer yet, but I think it's cool that I was asked), and there's still the milking chores! Whew!
So yeah... I have some serious catching up to do around here... I'll try and get that done soon!
