A Busy Weekend
Friday the 2 boys that have been helping us around the farm came to spend the weekend with us. They moved away and we hadn't seen them in a few weeks. Saturday morning I got up early and fed the chickens, ducks, geese and rabbits. William and the boys did the other feeding, milking and chores. They dropped me off at the craft fair at 7am. The fair was a little slower than last fall but I think its because more people shopped the yardsale outside. A couple of my friends said they came by and only saw the yardsale and didn't know I was inside. William came for me early as we had a couple of goats that were sick and he wasn't sure what to do. Came home and gave them some medication and did the evening chores. We built a fire and roasted hotdogs and marshmallows. Ended up with several kids from the neighborhood showing up for supper. Sunday morning I started early getting ready for my friends Gerda and Christine. They were coming for lunch. Gerda is the lady we tilled and planted the garden for and became fast friends. While getting lunch ready for her visit Brent and Erin dropped by with Erin's mom and aunt. Had a lovely visit with them and then had a nice lady with her son and daughter stop by to meet Diva and the other critters. After showing them around and introducing them to everyone at Hidden Haven I went back to finish lunch. Gerda and Christine showed up before I finished. William was in the shower so I showed them around until a customer came. Thank goodness William was able to finish the tour with them while I sold some soaps and other things. Finally got lunch finished and sat down (without my shower) to visit with Gerda. I just love this lady. She reminds me so much of Ms. Fran. After seeing them off we had the family that found Wild Thing come to visit and see how he was doing. They will be coming back in a month to take Wild Thing and release him near their home in the woods. Did evening chores, took the boys home, came home and ate leftovers, had a shower and got a surprise visit from Brent and Erin. They brought two cute little piglets. We are going to raise the pigs for them. After getting them settled in and making plans to see Brent and Erin in a couple of days I came in and crashed. The weekend wiped me out. Today I felt drained but am heading for bed and looking forward to a new day tomorrow. Things are still rough for us but each day is a blessing. Just got to accept God's timing and not be so impatient or untrusting.
