Confession #1: I'm not always right. (Shocking, isn't it?) :) This will be seen in the following confessions.
Confession #2: Apparently, I was wrong when I said that spring was here. We had a large storm sweep through this weekend complete with snow, rain, wind, and much colder temperatures. It snowed on Friday night and most of Saturday, creating the overall effect of a wintry January day. Our wood stove, which I had previously thought was retired for the season, is back in business.
Confession#3: Remember when I said that I could think of about 1,000 things to make with our very own backyard eggs? I may have exaggerated just a little. Or quite a bit. Our hens have started to really kick into action, and since we have 29 of them, we're getting almost 2 dozen eggs every day. That's a lot of eggs, I can tell you. And now we're scrambling (Haha, did you like that?) to find ways to use them up!
Confession #4: Well, this isn't really a confession; I just didn't want to break the trend. I have a little bit of exciting news I wanted to tell you! Yesterday we finally got the baby goats on a schedule of bottle-feeding only two times a day, once at 6am and once at 6pm. That means Friday night was the first night in over a month that we haven't had to get up in the middle of the night to feed goats. (That's as long as you consider 4am the middle of the night, which I do.) Well, I should say the first night in over a month that Isaac didn't have to get up to feed goats. There were several nights that I didn't go with him. Anyway, that is so exciting for us! We get to enjoy this wonderful reprieve for almost a whole month before Bess gives birth, and then we have to start all over again. I'm not going to think about that quite yet though; I'm just going to enjoy the present!
Confession #5: I didn't have any pictures to go with this post. Sorry! Maybe next post...
Confession #6: The last confession made me think of this: I've been meaning to do a post for a long time with pictures of Isaac milking Betty, but I haven't gotten around to it. Maybe that will be my next post. Now don't hold me to that! I'm just saying it might be a possibility. :)
