Another day.

It is with deep regret that I must inform you of the demise of my dearly departed vacuum cleaner. He passed away today at 10:42 a.m. of an undisclosed illness at the young age of 16 years old. He was brave right to the end. His sucking power will be greatly missed. :(

Ugh, now I have to find 100$ to replace mister vacuum. I knew his days were numbered, because he was losing his sucking power and some days he would give out these noises that I can't put into words. So just take my word for it.

Well we survived hurricane Bill. It was more like hurricane wimp. I've seen more wind at work with the guys. We had about 15 mm of rain and hardly any wind. I guess I should be grateful. It did break two branches off our poplar trees. The goats are happy about that!

I dewormed Febe for the second time today. You have to deworm them once then, again in 2 weeks. I dewormed Eve and Whisper for the first time today also. They are not fans of the dewormer. I can't imagine that it's all that good.

I picked our blueberry bush clean tonight after I got home from grocery shopping in town. (Town is 45 minutes away) We used to have half a dozen bushes laden with blueberries, but the heavy snows and old age took their toll on the bushes and now we have one left. We've planted more but it'll take years before we can reap anything from them. I noticed that my hibicus has flowered in the back yard.

The piglets are going outside now. It's so cute!! Momma has a watchful eye out for them, but they just run around. They are getting so big.

Well that's it for tonight. Hubby just got home from picking up his sister and her husband at the airport. They're home for a few weeks on vacation.

Have a Blessed Evening!


  1. What kind of animals did you de-worm?
    I have a love/hate relationship with my vacuume cleaner. Most often hate. I should just spend the big bucks and get a good one.

  2. My goats. Some people say you shouldn't deworm them, others say you have to. I go by the people that have had goats for 20+ years. They say deworm twice a year. I noticed Febe (the matriarch) was having clumpy poops. That usually means worms, because she was fine other than that. Now she's got nanny berries again. No more clumps! lol!


We love hearing from everyone! Please leave a comment even if it's just to say hello!
