My mom came over to where I work this afternoon and helped pick the apples that Paula said she didn't want/need. Johanna helped for a while, and sat on the blanket with Tracy Jo and ate an apple for a while, then played ball..... Tracy Jo just sat and watched and cooed and smiled, then we took turns entertaining her when she got tired of just sittin'. When we had all of our apples, they seemed a burden, but now that they're all put up and gone, it's nice to have apples again. My mom finally got to meet Paula too, when she came home from work. :)
When we got home, we juiced some of the apples for supper, then enjoyed the swiss steak and baked potatoes my mom had made for our supper. I started some bread sponging then, as Andrew had said this morning that he'd need bread before tomorrow morning to make his lunch with.... It's rising in the pans now, so maybe it will be done when Andrew gets home from combining?
My dad and Jacob have been working on the combine again and just about have it ready to go, they think.
Last night, my dad was the last one to get to bed, and he was just heading for bed when he looked out the patio door and saw one of our neighbors' goat bucklings on the deck. Our neighbors came and got him right away when my dad called, even though it was late. Then, this morning, there was another buckling in with our goat herd. SO, they came over again. Those goats sure can have a mind of their own at times!
