Another week in the life. It’s getting warmer, slowly, and of course that means MUD! That will be the new complaint flavor of the day from now until June, I am sure.

I do feel as though we are ready for the goat kids. My birthing kit is waiting on the table with the clean towels, the molasses is at hand, and the clean jug in the greenhouse is all set. The waiting is truly the most difficult part. Waiting and watching those goatie bellies and woo woos morning, noon, afternoon and night for the signs of impending labor.

We have also sold our breeding sheep and are trying to make a date with the buyers for the pickup. It’s definitely one of those ‘my schedule doesn’t correspond at all’ with theirs. We are all so busy, it’s a little crazy. As much as I am going to miss those wonderful girls, it’s time to make more room for the goats :*)  We are poised to streamline how things work on the farm and I am really looking forward to it!  But for now, we wait.
