It’s been a rough couple months. Lots of shit going down. Lots of mini “oh my gawd, what the hell am I doing?” going down.
Anyways, we have been fully moved in for over a month and a half. Things keep going awry and we still have lots to do….And I’m new at this…..And I’m a procrastinator….you can imagine that this is not the best of combinations, right? And we’ve been having a ton of water problems . *sigh*
But our cows are home (well new home). They spent the summer at a friend’s farm so we could knock them up. We have 2 miniature jerseys. Elsie and Daisy are little hellions. Escape artists….bullies….I love them with one breath and then curse them with the other. Elsie ATTACKED A and me when we were in the pasture checking fencing. I THINK she was trying to play with A but didn’t realize she could kill a 7 year old girl with her force. It took a half hour to get out of the situation. Thank Krakken I had my walking stick with us. That’s how I kept her away from A. Elsie battered my body though. The next day I felt like I had been run over by a car, not just a cow. I almost made her into hamburger at that point but I knew my mother would kill me. Now we don’t enter the pasture without our spray bottles and walking sticks. They hate water sprayed on them! Oh and Daisy has escaped 2x in the past couple days. No idea how. We come home from work and she’s just casually chewing grass in the front yard and gives us the run of our lives trying to get her back in the pasture.
The 3 female goats that are supposedly pregnant? We were told one would give birth around the beginning of November but nope. NO KIDS yet. This is upsetting. But the goats are adorable, ornery, and kinda wiggle their way into your heart.
We are loving our horses! Becoming quite attached. Ginger loves goldfish crackers. Thunderbolt is really affectionate.
I’m becoming such an outdoorsy gal! Okay, not really….I do it because I have to. Haha!
We have been having mice problems….I HATE MICE. Soooo imagine my happiness when my daughter’s cat Teesha caught a mouse in the house. (Lots of rhyming…I’m at Dr Seuss proportions of giddiness) I knew she was good for something!
Ugh I’m a little fatigued and irritated at myself for not posting in so long….so I’m going to end with this random photo of my daughter dressing up to go eat at Subway. Ha I love her!
