Catching Up

Gave the boys their last injections this morning. Brown Robyn cries like he is dying when he gets his shot. Frosty Dan just looks at you with those big eyes as if to say "you don't really want to hurt me do you". Their heads are looking great and they are running and jumping and getting that sparkle back in their eyes. Diva has decided to let them nurse. Only a little and only when she is in the mood but at least they are nursing mom again. Auntie Sammi is filling in the rest of the time. William was home this weekend and was a big help and helping me change bandages and hold them while I give them the injections. We also got alot of work done though we will never get caught up. My cousin Ellen, her husband James and their daughter Josie stopped by Saturday morning for a few minutes. They are on vacation and since they were coming through Fayetteville they got to stop so Josie could see the animals. She got to hold a bunny and the baby kitten. Diva was being Diva and wouldn't eat a carrot or cookie from Josie. We are hoping they can visit again and have more time so Josie can feed and milk with me. The back deck is now a back porch. The tin roof is on and when the painting is finished on it Wayne will put the screen up. It will be so nice to sit in a screened area and enjoy the evening without the flying bugs. I can't wait to be able to sit out there and listen to the rain hitting the tin roof. Its been a week without the grandkids but I have been so busy with the goats and the kittens that I haven't had time to really miss them. In the evening I miss having them talk me into a watching a movie instead of the news. I miss scaring them after they have watched a scary movie but will see them soon. Raigun's birthday party is August 4th and I will be going up for that and stopping by my brothers for more deer meat. I have photos to post of my package from the scavenger hunt and I have a great post about the second Lumby book. This one had even more goats in the story! I will try to catch up tonight and stop by and visit your blogs so I can start the new week without being behind. Hope your weekend was filled with blessings! I will also have my give away for my blog anniverary ready to post tomorrow. Hey its just a month late!

Glad to hear the boys are recovering well and I'm sure all will be forgiven soon! lol You will so enjoy your porch with the tin roof...I LOVE the sound of rain hitting a tin roof, reminds me of camp when I was a little girl:-) You have the right idea about making it a screened in porch...we can't sit outside here after a certain time because of the darn skeeters! Make sure you read my last couple of posts...got something for you in both! hehe xox

I recall in another post you had said you would not keep any of the kittens.

Have you changed your mind now that there's only one?

Donna said...

Nubians are such drama queens. I swear, it's a Greek tragedy every time I try to drench them or give them a shot. One of them put up such a fuss after a shot that I thought I was going to have to give them the epi. Even with the milking stanchion I end up with more wormer on me than in Didi.
