Good morning gang, pull out a chair and we`ll have us a good catch up!
I hope everyone had a good weekend. Ours was a pretty nice, the weather has been up and down but that`s March I suppose. One day you`re out cavorting in a t-shirt and the next you`re back in your winter coat! At least Lady Spring is working her way around Ole Man Winter and for that I commend her!
I had all good intentions of whipping up a blog entry yesterday. You know what they say about that road to a certain place and good intentions! Yesterday was packed right full of running. First Miss Yodeling had a doctor’s appointment (Nothing serious just getting boosters) at 8:30. After that I had to take her to school and stop and grab some Diet Pepsi. Next to coffee, the Black Dagger Brotherhood and comics Diet Pepsi is a necessity for Feral. No sooner had I returned, let the dogs out to do their doggy duties and ran a fast check on the does then my mother-in-law arrived with her dog and one cat in tow. She had appointments for both and can`t handle Patches and the cat carrier. Into her car went I and to the vets we rode!
Now by this time noon had come and gone. We got back to the hillside farm and I see Mister`s car parked beside my truck. Curious I thought. Found out that something had broken down at the foundry and the men had been sent home. He didn`t seem very upset about it I have to say. Seems whatever broke is still broke because he got the call last night that they wouldn’t be working today either. As I type he`s down at our neighbors helping make maple syrup. So, since hubby was home little writing got done yesterday, which is par the course. I can`t concentrate well to write when my darling groom is here. Is it just me or do they seem to wait until you`re doing something and then decide they want to talk??
Then at the 7 PM goat barn check we discovered my doe Fran was giving birth to her third kid. Third! Yup she gave us triplets! This is my first set of live triplets and was I excited! She gave us 2 bucks and a doe which we named Hawke, Carver and Bethany. Bethany is the black kid!
I told Franny that she would have her hooves full with 3 to attend to. Mother and kids are doing wonderfully I`m happy to report. Apparently my ligament check of four days ago was off the mark. I`ll chalk it up to being tired. Now I think my other girl Felicia is getting very close so perhaps she`ll go today….or perhaps not. These ladies do like to keep their attendants hopping!
Speaking of which, I had best tug my Muck boots back on and trundle down to see what I can see. Oh! Before I gad off to the maternity ward I`d like to give a yodel of welcome to Rox!
So what did y`all do over the weekend??
