Blame It On The Moon
They say a full moon brings on all kinds of crazy things. We have had a beautiful full moon here and a couple of owls enjoy calling to each other makes it even more enjoyable. I could blame my bad cold on the moon but we all know who really gave it me. William came home with a very bad cold and I finally got him to take some cold medicine. Getting him to take any medicine is worse than trying to give a child a shot! He started feeling some better except for a bad cough and still getting tired easy. He decided he would take a load to Oregon for his company and we rushed around cleaning out his truck and repacking it with warm clothes, snow chains, etc. He left and but left his cold behind for me. I have felt terrible all day. I fed and milked this morning then came inside and rested for a while before going back out to water and rake pens. I came back in and rested before going to post office and pick up chicken feed. Came home and rested before mixing feeds and doing the afternoon feeding and milking. I came in to rest a few minutes before watering. I have had a bowl of soup, a hot shower and taken some cold medication. I am now going to lay on the sofa while dozing and watching TV till after Survivor then I will go to bed and hopefully sleep all night and feel better tomorrow. I have a ton of soap to bag and tag for Saturday. I am going to the craft fair even with my cold. I am really looking forward to my first craft fair and to meeting some new friends. Have a wonderful weekend, stay healthy and count your blessings. I will be back to goat stories and photos soon. The goats don't even want me sneezing on them so are being easy with me. That won't last long and they will be back to their wild adventures.
