Oh Boy! A Little Bit Of This, A Little Bit Of That...

And so last night the 2010 Winter Olympics ended, with from the little that I saw was one of the nicer, least weirdest closing ceremonies that I have watched. All ready I am missing the games, on my way home today I was thinking "I can't wait to get home, grab some food, coffee and the remote to watch some Olympics." Only to remember that they are no more (well, at least for the next two years). Then the next thought was to think about the sports that I missed such as Luge and the very little bobsledding that I go to watch. But then there was the skeleton that I was able to watch for the very first time, now that was something!!


The rodeo starts tomorrow, and with the start of the rodeo is the start of me being in the house very little for the next three weeks between working there, enjoying the livestock show, markets and church. I shall be out of the house every day of the week for the next three weeks, and I am all ready sick of driving thanks to spending well over four hours in the car today.


We had another goat kid today. Nothing out of the norm, if you just think of it as a kidding, except in this case it was slightly out of the norm for two reasons--1) Sweetheart (the does' name) had quads!! A first here! and 2) I get to keep one of the does, which means I will own my first LaMancha. Which my mom is happy about after four years of saying Nubians are better I finally and succumbing to the charms of the 'Manchas. lol


Let's see, is that all? Well, that's all that I can think of except for if it keeps raining we will very soon have to build an ark as it's been raining (or snowing) almost every single day for the past week and a half and I can't walk from the trailer to the house without soaking the hem of my skirt six inches (all right so I am exaggerating, but I couldn't help it as that line from "Pride and Prejudice" popped into my head.)

Yup, that's all for now. Everyone have a great week!!

"Her hem was 6 inches deep in mud I'm sure!" heehee That's what I was thinking when you said it! Gotta love pride and prejudice!

Soooo, I am guessing that since you will be super busy the next few weeks that we can expect a decrease in the amount of posts you normally post? Sadness... I hope you have a great couple of busy weeks though and that they aren't too stressful!!

Our La Mancha is going to kid any minute! :) (That's what the girls have been saying for the last week and a half.) How do you tell she is in labor? Because, going by all the books' instructions, for the past week she is "going to kid in 12 hours!!!" and then we wake up the next morning to find just a fat old pregnant goat. Quite frustrating! :) -Rachel

Sarah, maybe. I won't be working in the mornings so I can post then, but I was also thinking of doing guest post from my sisters and parents, so we will see how that goes.

Rachel--E-mail me and I will see what I can do to help you half way across the country. lol (Something tells me there are people who read my blog who wouldn't care to read about goats in birth.)
