Cool, crisp air...

It was a moment of rejoicing when the guys got the air conditioner fixed this morning! It had broke last year at the end of the hot season. So far this year, it hasn't been too terribly hot without air conditioning, until these last couple of weeks, of course. Fans are nice, but A.C.s are cool! :)

Dad and Andrew worked on hay again today while Jacob wasn't needed there, so he stayed home and mowed, and mowed, and mowed the lawn. Mother had several sessions to do at home here (her uncle and aunt from SD came this morning...), plus I'm sure she did other things as well. I worked at the nursing home again...

Those were the highlights of the day.

Oh yes, one more thing Andrew and I did this morning was to catch our 3 bucks that had broken into the does' pen and to put them in a different pen. Hopefully we caught them soon enough so we don't have baby goats arriving in December!

Now I will leave you with a quote, (a Dutch proverb actually,) one that made me smile:

I can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses!

That's beautiful! :) Glad you caught the bucks... hope and pray all is well there.

One of our new doelings (about 3 months old) escaped into our buck pen a month or two ago... but we don't believe she is pregnant. It could happen... but it would be awful in a kid so young.

Well, be blessed.
