Happy Friday all, come on in and have a sit-down.
Things here on the hillside farm sure have been damp! Yesterday it poured like nobody`s business. We are now watered up to our goatherding keisters but the ducks and geese are enjoying the rivers in the yard! Since it was such an ugly day yesterday I figured it was time to get my pre-kidding prep done.
Towels washed, dried and folded. Check. Kidding box tidied and fresh supplies placed inside. Check. New bottle of iodine for new belly buttons. Check.
Goat kid family pool. Check.
Does ready and willing and quite preggers. Check sort of.
As of today they`re all standing about looking at me and Mister looking at them. Oh but I know the games they play all too well! I know when I least expect it-KABLAM! Kids will be hitting the ground faster than you can say 'I was just down here ten minutes ago and only left to pee!'They are wily. Don`t let thier innocent looks fool you.
Last night was Miss Yodeling`s FFA banquet and award ceremony, so we creeped and crawled to CVHS in the deluge. The food was delicious and we shared a table with some family friends and thier daughter, who happens to be one of Miss Yodeling`s best buds.
So many blue jackets! Fills my old farming heart to see so many young people taking an interest in agriculture so it does. Miss got a nice certificate for saying the FFA Creed and public speaking.
And not to be outdone by the FFA feast and fun or the rain I am pleased to say my waterfowl ladies hit 100% production this morning! 3 ducks + 2 geese =5 fresh eggs!Way to go my web-footed lovelies!
Oh! And one more small tibbet before I go fold my wash. Yesterday Mister found his tape. You all remember the tape don`t you? The one that was yellow and called 'Crow Revelry'? The one he and I spent two hours ripping and tearing for just a week or two ago? That tape? Yup, he done found it yesterday morning. You`ll never guess where. Nope, although I did want to put the missing tape there during the mad game of search and no locate. The exalted and holy yellow 'Crow Revelry' tape was lying on the living room shelf under a pile of his hats. Uh-huh. The same hats I vaguely recall asking him to place back on the dryer weeks ago. Oh the look of sheepish male guilt that crept across his face when he discovered that tape.
Not that I am the type of wife who would EVER say I told you so snookums.
Once more, since it is so danged much fun, we yodeling goatherders are joining Verde Farms in thier Friday Farm Friends blog hop! It`s a real hoot and much easier to do than clog dancing whilst yodeling!
