What a beautiful day it was today. The weatherman was wrong….again…..but it was beautiful! Snow was falling on our trip out and I felt like I was in the middle of a Norman Rockwell painting it was so beautiful. I took a minute to capture a couple of pics once we were to the truck and driving the 3/4 of a mile to the road. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
The girls and I made our trip to town to stock up on things we may need and check the mail. I am not much for going to town but have to say today people were even more friendly than normal-could it be the season? I spent half an hour talking to a lovely older gentleman in he post office who spent the tie telling me about the area 40 years ago and being the history buff I am I wish it could have been longer.
Dear hubby met us at the parking area to help haul in the bounty from town and pick up the things I lose on the trail. Yes I get lost in thought and am tooling right along and don’t notice when 20 pounds of potatoes exits the trailer, thank heavens he doesn’t have his head in the clouds too!
The guys had a good time today with the females all gone, they hauled water, cut wood and watched the pig antics. Pigs that are supposed to be such smart creatures sometimes do the silliest things. Today Sir Hammington being the nosey creature he is decides sniffing the shovel that is leaning against the electric fence-would be a grand idea. He of course gets shocked and does a flip, squeals and runs off. Charlotte who is standing there witnessing this and who herself is well versed in electric fences then decides that maybe she should see if it really does shock and repeats the same silly moves. I guess the smart pig theory has just been proven wrong.
Still no goat babies, I can tell you I am getting antsy waiting. According to the dates I have down, the appearance of both Bubbles Jr. and Bella they should have had their babies by now. I guess it’s a waiting game as I have explained to them numerous times I am tired of waiting!
Not much else to report but will post as soon as we have some cue little goat kids on the ground but for now I think I will put on my warm coat, grab a cup of hot coffee and go spend a few minutes watching the snowfall on my little piece of paradise. I believe its time to go Thank God for the many blessings he bestowed upon this family today.
