It was a lovely, Fall day...

The boys and I spent part of the morning putting the rest of the electric wire up around the corn field. Now, someone just needs to figure out how to get the water-tank over there... :)

At noon, Andrew helped us load up 26 goats in the stock trailer before he left to help Stan again for the rest of the afternoon (they got done with the corn today and will now move onto sunflowers). Several of the goats we're selling are weathers and then the rest are does that were not good milkers, or doelings that we just didn't want to keep as we needed to downsize. We kept 10 does/doelings and have 2 bucks, so our current herd equals 12! I don't think we've had this few goats for many years! Mom and Jacob delivered the goats to Mandan and then made a trip to Sam's Club to stock up on some supplies. They got home after dark.

This left me home alone (Dad was hauling grain today) to get the house cleaned up (although Mother did clean the bathroom before she left) :) and the supper made. I went out and dug some carrots and potatoes from the field (yes, they're still out there!) and added them to a roast. Next, I sliced some apples, put them in a buttercup squash and made a caramel sauce to pour over the whole thing. Yummy! There was laundry to do too, plus I got a phone call from Helen (owner of the daycare I've helped at in the past) and we visited quite a while, and she asked if I could help on certain dates in the future. I'm looking forward to that as I LOVE being with little children! They're just so full of life and fun. :) Plus, her business is in her home, on a farm, so the environment is very homelike.

We ate a late supper and are now heading for bed as we're all pretty tired.

It was lovely outside today, though a bit crisp and Fall like. We're just praising the Lord for each nice day!

Hey Cora,
I'm thankful you had such a nice, however busy, day. :)

It's really rainy here, and cool out. But not snowing... yet! :)Supposed to get the first frost of the season.

Yours Carra
