What Do You Think?

No its not me (I wish). William said he would build me a milking ramp if I found what I wanted. This one would fit in with our homestead look and serve the purpose. Besides I don't think William likes me tying Miss Diva up to his boat! This has been a good day on the homestead! I took Ms. Fran to the doctor and she is finally taking medication for beginning stage of Alzheimer's She seems to be okay with what the doctor told her about it not curing just slowing things down. I hope it works! I spent some time working in the garden beds, raking leaves and cleaning the dog lot. I also made several batches of soap with new fragrances. I cooked a big pot of pintos, fried some potatoes, made cornbread and cole slaw. Yes, it was just me but I make plates for William and freeze them so he can take them with him after he comes home. He has a fridge and microwave in his truck and likes having home cooked meals. I have been cleaning and picking up things the kittens have knocked down. They are into climbing and have decided I am a good climbing post and sleeping buddy. I was hoping to take photos of them. I got a new cord for my camera William got me for Christmas but I can't get the photos to download. The old camera is such a disappointment after using the new one. Will have to take time to set at the computer and figure out what is wrong. We finally got sunshine around 4PM and it actually warmed up! Tomorrow is suppose to be sunny and warm but rain tomorrow night. I am fine with the rain as the veggies and flowers are doing so well. I can always do inside things.... Like make more soaps!! My 5 year old granddaughter called to tell me she had lost her first tooth today at soccer practice. She told me that you had to put the tooth under your pillow and the tooth fairy came. I ask her how much money the tooth fairy would leave and she told me $100! I heard her mom in the background saying VERY loudly I don't think so!!! I am so blessed with my homestead, family and friends. Have you counted your blessings today?

I get warm fuzzies reading your posts. Everything sounds so idyllic (but I do realize it's all hard work--don't get me wrong!). What a wonderful life you have carved out. And for grandma to make her own soaps and milk her goat, etc. How perfect is that!
