Not sure if we have had any sun since May 1st! It sure feels like we have not. It’s grey, overcast and damp. The good part of this has been that we are getting a little of the rain that we need, but in-between, we have not seen the sun. Complain, complain, grump, grump. It’s been really bone-chilling damply cold at work, probably because the heat is already turned off!
Well, we are getting there, but I suspect that one day soon we will wake up and it will feel like summer, and we will walk around complaining that we had no spring… just winter into summer. That’s Maine, for you!
But the days are flying by now. We are waiting on the next two goats to kid, one next week, and one the week after. Pippi is due next and she looks big as houses! We are calling her ‘Saddlebags.’ Poor thing is waddling, but she still finds the time and energy to boss the other goats around at the feeder. Pickles the yearling is the next up after Pippi, and I am hoping that she has a single. (Pippi has never had a single, she just keeps popping out those twins!).
And so it goes. 28 work days to go :*)
