Well here I am late again with my blog, can I blame it on Basketball Season?, or my computer that ended up in the shop for two day? Four games this week not counting a two hour drive to one on Saturday. We have had fun though so I am really not complaining. Oh, and is our weather beautiful or not!! 60 plus the last few days, so during the day we have been super busy trying to catch up on the farm. The one thing we have had this winter is lots of wind!! Our woods are full of limbs that we need to get picked up, plus two big trees down. (Anyone need fire wood?) We spent four hours just working on fences one day this week, sore?, wow I wasn’t sure I would be able to move the next day, but everything is secure once again so my cows won’t roam. We have a fairly new neighbor that gets a little upset if a cow gets on his lawn. He always figures it is my cows, but I have found my cows standing in the barn when he is sure one of them is on his lawn. I’ve had long talks with the cows explaining that they need to stay home and they assure me they aren’t going to roam because I feed them too well J.
We have some new additions to the Knox family, besides a beautiful red-headed Great Granddaughter!! One of Jamie’s goats had triplets yesterday. They are so cute, unfortunately they cannot be with their mother so they are living in the basement of their house. That has something to do with a disease that the mother has that is transferred in her milk. Bottle babies are fun, lots of work, but I feel so sorry for the mother. They will only breed her once because she is a beautiful goat and then keep her for a pet. I keep telling them they could have 13 goats before summer because two other healthy goats are due in the next month. Sending a picture of “Georgie” the one female of the triplets.
One other interesting thing happening in my life is a new “non-diet” I am on. I have a friend that asked me if I wanted to do this with her. Mostly we want to be healthy, not skinny!! Then another friend joined us. We e-mail regularly, which seems to make us more accountable , and weigh in each week and set goals. We all feel better because of healthier eating and exercising. I took a 30-day walking challenge on line two weeks ago and haven’t missed a day yet. First time I have ever been committed to exercising, so thank you to my two very good friends!!
Off to hop on the treadmill, then outside to work in the barn. Have a wonderful spring!!
