August 13, 2009

Today was another nice hot day. The piglets had all their wolf teeth cut and their shots given. It was Dave's first time doing it. Melvin the local pig farmer came and showed him how to do it. Very simple. Dave doesn't like giving them their shots. He's afraid of hurting them. Whatever happened to the great white hunter I once knew? I must have converted him!

Dave fixed the car air conditioner today and the brakes.

This weekend I have a family reunion, a Sunday school picnic and a birthday party to attend. All at the same time. What to do...what to do. I also want to can my yellow beans that need to be done in the worse way. So little time. Too bad I have to work for a living because some days I feel like I'm leading 2 lives. Oh! and it's also "the tintamarre". It's an Acadian thing. It's Saturday night on National Acadian day.

Our son is feeling a bit better about the piglet. He cried and sobbed all night last night. It was so pitiful to watch.

I've decided not to take piano lessons this fall. I just don't have the time. My heart isn't into it either.

Have a Blessed day!



  1. You know more about goats then I do! I have only had mine for a month now. I will breed one this fall. What are you doing with your milk now? Drinking it? Making cheese?
    How much milk are you getting each day? You milk both am and pm?
    My friend had a big bean crop this year so I'm getting some of hers and will pickle some of them.

  2. We are drinking it and I make yogurt and what I call cream cheese. Technically it's not cream cheese, but I use it as such. I am going to learn to make soap this fall. When Febe first freshened she was giving 5 lbs of milk, twice a day. Which is about 2 and a half litres twice a day. Now I'm barely getting one litre twice a day. Yes, I milk both am and pm.

    I didn't realize you only had your goats a month. I love having them. I'm warning you, DO NOT FALL IN LOVE WITH THE KIDS!!!!They are all cute as buttons. Unless, you plan on keeping them all. What breed are yours??


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