Summer Projects

I’ve gotten completely out of the habit of updating since my little vacation. I think this is half due to the change in the structure of my days, and half to everything else that seems to have popped up out of nowhere all at once. My to do list went from a small handful of things, to not having space for everything on the little board where I keep my list of things that need doing.

That list includes a larger, more permanent place for our goats….. which is going up on the shady side of a larger storage shed. It is going up remarkably quickly for something being done in spare time (ha!).

There was also the first (of what will hopefully be many) Georgia Birth Network’s Birth Ball!After lots of planning and hard work by several of the GBN ladies, it went wonderfully and was well attended. I love when effort pays off.

Mellie is loving the summer. She is a huge fan of the outdoors. When she is fussy and nothing else seems to make her happy, a snack and some grass between her toes works wonders.

Goats Galore!

Meet Violet and Caiphus, our new Nigerian Dwarf kids!

They came to us from Flights of Fancy Farm in Jasper, GA. Mellie was a little skeptical when we first picked them up, but this morning she headed down the stairs and opened the front door herself to go out and see them! (Yikes!)

We picked them up on Saturday and then spent Sunday working on a shed and shady summer pasture space for them. (Picture is of the larger storage shed that’s going up, on the side of which the goat shed will be. I took pictures before we got the frame in place yesterday.)

I hope they’ll be happy in their new home!
