Get Sh%t done ….. in a little while.

Another blog from my morning view of the world. The chickens and goats are all feed, watered, and ready for the day. Breakfast, spiced ground beef topped by the always present egg, eaten and cleaned up. Now sitting with a cup of coffee waiting for my piece of the world to get a little brighter and warmer.

Yesterday day was new turkey day. Well actually second new turkey day. A couple weeks ago we inherited a female turkey from a neighbor.

She seemed little lonely, so yesterday we drove about an hour up the road and got her a friend.

It’s amazing how big he can make himself look when he wants to.

On today’s agenda is more garden work. The structures we have two hardy kiwis growing on have started to fall apart, so I’m going to use some of the timber I took out of Sherlock’s area to redo a climbing trellis. Then I need to redo the bean teepee. We had tried to have the beans climb garden string in past years with only marginal success. I’m going to put it wood supports with wire mesh between and see if we can’t get a better crop.

Well the sun is now brightened the yard, so I will leave you with a picture of Sidda enjoying yesterday’s sun with her babies.

Happy Easter 

Happy Easter world.  Sunrise is something I get to enjoy pretty much each morning here. I hope  those who made it out to sunrise services throughout the world had a similar beautiful one. 


We added to our little homestead this week when Vivi gave birth to a buckling.


The other buckling, Shep, is two week old now and even though he was not happy when we disbudded him, has come around to being interested in us.  Or at least interested in my shorts. 


Have a great week world.

Yesterday

For the past week I’ve been coming off of the medications I take during my cluster headaches, and it has been a little rough. Yesterday though, was a very good day.

It started out with getting a  lucky double yolk egg to go with my spam, the breakfast of champions.

While eating said spam and eggs I had a beautiful sunrise out the kitchen window to keep me company.

The project for the day was to get an awning built to keep the rain farther from the goat barn doors.

I also roasted my first turkey yesterday.  No, it was not one we raised.  We had bought it before Thanksgiving and it had sitting in the freezer.  It was a 14 pounder that we got for only $3.  I will have to keep an eye out for those kinds of deals again because it turned out perfect and will probably feed us for a week.

Have a great week, world.
