So Glad Its Dark!!
I have been going since 6am this morning. After feeding and milking I soaked and scrubbed all 3 of the goats hooves! They got pedicures and all enjoyed them except Diva. She did not want me to soak or scrubbed her hooves so I gave her a snack to occupy her. William saw beginning signs of hoof rot so I wanted to nip it in the bud before it developed. After their pedicure I treated their hooves with some stuff the feed store owner's sister recommended. She's a vet. I can't remember the name at the moment. After their treatment I raked all the hay they had scattered and stomped in their pen. Got the whole pen raked and then burnt the old hay. Put down fresh straw in the stalls and sprayed for flies. Moved on to the chicken and duck pens. Raked them and burnt all their straw. Bleached and refiled all the water buckets, bleached the roosting poles. Bleached the nesting boxes and put in fresh straw. Have 3 hens sitting on eggs but they love stealing eggs from each other so have to divide them back out so one hen isn't trying to cover all the eggs. I set out more tomato plants. Weeded the cabbage and lettuce. I picked some lettuce for a salad for supper. Made a trip to the post office to mail out some packages. Caught the last of my teen roosters. They are going to be dinner for some families down the road when they get a little bigger. Gave Diva her vitamin E. Making sure she is healthy and happy when its time for the babies. Did 2 loads of laundry. I really need to get my washtubs and hand crank wringer back out. Thats how I do laundry in warm weather and its been warm here lately. I started on the camper but only did the bathroom. Decided to take it one room at a time. Got all the trash out of the dodge van so I can haul it off tomorrow with the other trash. Mixed up some miracle grow and watered all the grape vines, flower and veggie beds. I came in when it got too dark to work outside. I just love being outside all day! Now I really need to dust and vacuum the living room. I hope each of you are enjoying your day.Don't let it pass by while you are watching TV, playing on the computer or just doing nothing. Live each day to the fullest! We only have today for so many hours and then its gone. When your today is gone will you be happy with what you did with it?
