Happy Memorial Day

Hope everyone has had a wonderful day. William has been home so we spent the day trimming goat hooves,worming and building a milking stanch. A young guy lost control of his car last night and took out our mailbox and sign post. His father talked with William and is going to pay for us to replace everything. We went to Lowe's this evening and purchased new mailbox, posts and materials. William will be out early in the morning putting everything together. I spent the evening in the soap shop and will be delivering local orders tomorrow morning after milking. After trimming the dwarfs hooves we milked the 2 does. We have been weaning the babies. Its different than milking our Nubian's but it all worked out. We did our holiday grilling last night. We had a lady truck driver friend that was visiting Wendy come over and we grilled steaks. Had the usual fresh salad, baked potato, garlic cheese bread, watermelon, cantaloupe and chocolate cake. Tonight we just picked up a hotdog while out at Lowes. We both are dragging tonight. Had a busy day and another one tomorrow. I hope to take pictures of the goslings swimming but have been so busy I haven't taken any pictures. This past Sunday was my family reunion. William was on his way home and I was busy with the catering thing so didn't make it. I hope to get up to the mountains in June to visit family. Just don't seem to have time to go anywhere lately. Everyone have a blessed week!

Sounds like a great weekend Peggy:) Glad you got to spend some time with William. I hope the young man wasn't hurt at all? It's good to see his father taking charge on the fixins though:)
Hope you make your family visit coming up. It's always nice to take a break once in a while when you can.
Blessings,
Regina

It is too bad you missed the family reunion. I know these family occasions are important to you.

When I made my pass through Western North Carolina, the Wisteria was in full bloom. It was a lovely occasion. I hope to possibly return this Fall.

I hope your young neighbour learned a lesson. He got away with something. Hopeful he has learned to fear the automobile a little. A new post box is a cheap price to pay for the lesson.

Oh sis, I'm so sorry you had to miss your family reunion! I know how much you love being with family. It's understandable how busy you are, though, you have so much to take care of. Your holiday grilling sounds delish...you have the same tastes I do in food! hehe xoxo
