Do you know what tomorrow is?

It's my dad's birthday! :)

This was another busy day... Two of the three calves we got in the barn last night were doing better this morning and the other was about the same. I'm not sure how they were tonight, as I was working in town.

One of our goats kidded today and had twin bucklings. I'll try to remember my camera one of these chores so I can get some pictures of our 6 kids!

We sold the milk cows today in Napoleon. I'm glad I had to be at work while the sale was going on, as it would have been pretty sad to have to see them being sold.....

I'm also glad that we still have one cow here that we're milking (by hand) and feeding the milk to our two and a half bottle calves. (I say two and a HALF, because one very young heifer had a baby recently and she doesn't have enough milk for it, so we're feeding half a bottle to the calf twice a day.)

I'm tired tonight and my thoughts are not flowing smoothly together, so perhaps I should just wish you all a good nights rest, say a prayer, and go to bed.?! I had planned to do a couple Award/tags tonight that I received recently, but that will have to wait for another day...

So, dear friends, "Good night!"

For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds has come.

I like the quote from Song of Solomon. And am very thankful spring follows winter.

Dear Cora,
I agree with Kimberly about being glad that Winter is finally over. Also, I too am glad that you didn't have to watch the sale as I know that you would have had a hard time watching Sadie go.
Isn't it wonderful that the sun is so bright this morning? Maybe it'll dry off now and we can get back to the garden. :)
Hugs,
Mom

Oh more kids!! How nice. We just had two lambs born this morning. I have not seen them yet but have been told they are so cute :D
I'm sure that it would be sad to see your animals sold. . . at least you still have one left :)
Did you sell all your milking equipment too?
I like Song of Solomons 2:11 & 12.
Well I need to get going too. Grace and I are picking wild edibles to sell at market tomorrow. We never have sold any before so we'll see how that goes.

Happy birthday to your dad! :-)

I like that verse. Someone should tell it to the weather around here...
