I cut the grass this morning and then went over and cut Fran's grass and cleaned out some of her flower beds. Her daughter is living in her house and is in a wheelchair so can't do alot of things. I finished planting my herb garden and mulched it. I also planted more green beans and melons in the big garden. Spent some time with the new goats. They are slowly warming up to me and letting me pet them. Blinkin is giving Nitro and the boys a hard time today. Poor guys were just enjoying the sunshine and made the mistake of looking at Blinkin. She gave Nitro and Frosty Dan a hard headbutt to their side. They were so shocked they just stood there and looked at her. Blinkin just tossed her head and walked off . She is older and pregnant so think her mood swings are going to keep the boys on their toes! I know when her ears are sticking out she isn't in a playful mood and just feed her and walk away. I don't want to mess with a moody goat as I know I would never come out ahead. Sold 6 dozen eggs today. The chickens are giving us almost 2 dozen eggs a day so have plenty. We are so blessed to have fresh milk, cheese, eggs and veggies from right here on the homestead. Living a simple life is living the perfect life in my eyes. Have a blessed weekend!!
