I went down to do chores tonight and usually I do the sheep side first, get them grain, along with the alpaca, and llama, then the donkey and horse. Break open a bale of hay and divide it amonst them all. Right now the sheep are not eating as m... Read more

Yesterday we had snow, lots of big fluffy flakes falling, it really didn't amount to much, about 5-6" but it was beautiful! Today in contrast it is sunny and warm with melting everywhere. I didn't bother to plow this morning because I was in a... Read more

I would like to report that I got up early and got things done but NOT! I tried to get to sleep last night and was still awake at 4:30 am, I really hate that. I guess I must have fallen asleep about the time I last looked at the clock. I crash... Read more

Yesterday was a sleep day, I got up way too late because I went to bed way too late, it was 2 pm by the time everything was done and I was horizontal. So I broke my 10 K step record, it was too late to get enough steps in by the time chores were... Read more

Seems like this work week has been forever, moral around here is so bad. We are losing a person at night, not much of a loss really except as a warm body to do weekends. She has been milking being disabled because she says her whole left side i... Read more

I got home late this morning, long ride home with slippery snow and some ice. The speed limit was down to 45, but it was not a bad ride, just slow. I had a book on tape playing and it is nice to relax for a while before getting home. It d... Read more

Today was kind of a failure of a day, I attempted to do the wiring for the switches, but I know there is something wrong about how they are wired, it is very old wiring and I don't like how they feed off the switch next to them, I left them toge... Read more

I haven't been sleeping the last week or so, who knows why, but it sure is a pain to lay in bed tossing and turning watching the time go by and not be sleeping. I was very annoyed at myself on Friday that I slept really late because I didn't fa... Read more

We had some snow last night, just a couple of inches but enough to stick to that darn ice. I was going to try to get the truck out of the driveway early, but by the time I got things done it was almost 10 am. I got in the truck and it drove ri... Read more

Some days things just don't go the way we want them too and today was one of those days. I had to get up fairly early to get chores done and get to my dentist appointment. I hate getting up early the first day after my night shifts because it ... Read more

I only had two productive days off this week, plus one sleep day. The first day off Friday I was lax about doing anything, I of course did chores morning and night and emptied my car of grain, but didn't put it away. I fooled around with some ... Read more

Only two nights of work this week, Monday was a holiday, I think I could get used to this, two nights is so much easier then 3 or 4 nights! We had a lot of rain yesterday in the night and it was icy on the roads in the morning going home. ... Read more
