How's it going?
Well that's the question I've been getting a lot since we sold the animals.
Tickety boo.
That's usually my answer.
I miss the goats a lot...a lot.
I miss not having fresh milk at any given time.
Store bought milk..well....bites.
And I'm always running to the store to buy some.
It's weird how you take for granted what you have until it's gone.
I honestly didn't think we drank all that much milk.
Boy was I wrong.
I don't even drink it, I just use it for baking (which I now have time to do) and for my cereal.
But it still goes faster than I expected.

I actually enrolled in the Master Gardener's Course at Dalhousie University
and got my email that it starts tomorrow! Ack!


Since my body still thinks it has to get up at the crack of dawn, I'm going to let it think that.
And that's what I'm going to be doing for an hour every morning...studying.
I never thought I'd hear myself say that.

We are slowly getting into a new routine with no animals other than chickens, dogs and cats.
It's weird going outside and hearing....birds chirp.
The roosters don't even crow all that much anymore.
It's so quiet...some days I love it. Some days I don't .
I still putter around the property wondering what I have to do.
Oh yes! That's right.
I have laundry to do. And lots of it!
That didn't stop....ever.

I'm gearing up to make my famous apple butter for the upcoming craft sales. 

Fire and Ice Hydrangea

I went to our local apple orchard and bought 6 bushels of apples.
I'll be busy soon.
I'm also busy making soap, soap and more soap.
I had time to decorate for fall this year.
I like it.
We have a helper coming next week.
Her job will be taking down the fencing.
The helpers we had the last 2.5 weeks brought in all our firewood.
That was awesome!
Well that's all for now
Have a Blessed Evening
