This and that

J. has been sick for the last few days with a fever. Nothing else. Just a fever. Strange. This has happened before. It's hard to know what to do. Do you send him to school or don't you? I'll have to wait till tomorrow and see. The school and daycare policy is that if they have a fever they are to stay at home. If they have a cold or whatever, then they can come to school. Such a stupid rule.

Dave is bringing in the firewood. The photo btw, is of this summer when Dave was splitting the wood.

I decorated to Halloween and made pumpkin whoopie pies. Sooo good. We did go to church this morning because we were doing a special. We sang "God's bigger than that" Everyone liked it. One of my worship leaders told me that she will no longer be leading worship for the forsee able future. She is busy. She handles Sunday school and also sings. So it makes her run around like a chicken with her head cut off on Sunday mornings. So I see her point. I've been in that boat before. Taking more than you can chew. Now I have to find someone else. I'll have to take up the slack for a while though.

Febe is still not in heat. I got her and Whisper Squeezy buns. They love them! They're made by a company called Uncle Jimmy. They also make Hanging Balls. Which in turn are called Uncle Jimmy's Hanging balls. It makes you wonder where Uncle Jimmy's mind is!? Don't you think? hmmm. All these products are made for horses, but I checked the ingredients and they're all safe for goats too. I haven't got the balls yet. They are just too expensive.

It was nice enough to put the goats in the pasture today. It's been raining most of the week so they've been stuck in the barn. They were getting cabin fever.

Speaking of barn. Dave has finally finished the barn. Well almost. This is good.

Have a Blessed Day.


  1. I would like to get my goats some treats. JuJu likes carrots but Maggie turns her nose up at them. They both don't like apples.

  2. Uncle Jimmy is an American company so you should be able to find some. Or go online.

  3. Ok, what are pumpking whoopie pies? I'm imagining some kind of pumpkin pies?

    We haven't purchased any of the fun balls either, but look at them every time we hit the farm supply store. Like you said too spendy.

    Good luck getting the barn done. Our's is a work in progress. My hubby gets one thing done and just keeps moving on to the next.

  4. Whoopie pumpkin pies are just whoopie pies but instead of chocolate it's made with pumpkin and spices. The filling is cream cheese frosting. Just horrible! NOT! I can send you the recipe if you want.


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