No Pictures or Interesting Post Because..

William got to spend the night at home last night since they couldn't unload his tanker. We had alot of projects to talk over. We did the feeding and milking and headed out at 7AM this morning to meet Megan (my daughter) to pick up my grands Quintin and Gabby. So we and she drove 3 hours to meet and then 3 hours back to our homes. I am so glad the grands got to visit afterall. William had to go back to Greensboro tonight so he could have his tanker ready to be unloaded early in the morning. The hired hand has a sore throat so decided to spend the day in bed. The people that own a row of houses in front of our property decided to have someone come in and cut all the big pine trees. When they cut the trees some limbs feel on our electric fence. The noise from the cutters equipment spooked the bucks that were in the fence that no longer had electric to it. Leonard got out and went in with the does. We weren't home so didn't know he was in with them. The hired hand was sleeping in his camper and didn't know. I come home and have to get him back where he belongs. Have no ideal if he bred one.Let the cutters know they need to clean the limbs off the fence NOW. Do all the milking, watering and feeding goats while the grands feed and water the chickens, ducks, geese and rabbits. Harvey is sitting in his stroller letting me know he is unhappy as he has been in a car seat most of the day and he doesn't want to sit in the stroller. The grands are wanting supper so a fire in the firepit and a pack of hotdogs and s'more makings solve that problem. Harvey gets mashed potatoes and corn before a bath, bottle and bed. The grands are out playing ball and I am trying to clean the mess around the house. Had visitors and sold some soap. Have 3 orders I need to get packaged so I can mail them tomorrow. Have eggs to clean and put away. Grands to get settled for the night. So no pictures, no adventures of Hidden Haven because I need to get off here and return some phone calls , walk the electric fence and get ready for tomorrows adventures which I promise will include pictures of the 3 Amigos and Harvey. Hope your day was a good one.

Okay, I am exhausted after reading all you had to do. Wow, Peggy, you work hard. I don't know if I could handle all that. But I love reading about your adventures. : )

Wow Peggy!! I am very impressed with you. You handle this stuff so well! Ok maybe you don't feel like it but those grands are learning from you that they are strong and can handle this stuff! If they can handle farm stuff, they can handle anything life can throw at them! I wish had had more time with a grand mother like you! Maybe I wouldn't have a defeated attitude a lot of the time!

Good morning Sis:-)

I'm so sorry for not having visited in the last couple of days but I've explained why in my post this morning. Today is a new day, though, and I've been missing my blogging buddies so here I am:-)

Every day is an adventure at Hidden Haven! lol I don't know how you ever find time for yourself, sis, you're always so busy. But I know how much you love it:-)

Harvey is such a little cutie, look at that adorable smile of his. I'm sure it melts Grandma's heart every time! hehe

Hopefully your electric fence is now working again...if Leonard did breed one of the does, bring the babies to the guys who were cutting down the trees! lol

Love ya sis! xoxo
