The battle of the minds-Ode to BESSHAILE
Friday, September 02, 2016      16 comments

I love reading BESSHAILE'S posts when her left brain and right brain have conversations, choosing sides and arguing the virtues of each opinion. I am having one of those days. The left brain is saying to just pack up and go to the Sta... Read more
No fluff today-just a surprise
Thursday, September 01, 2016      14 comments

I followed my usual morning routine and saw that my life and health agent was at the office early. Very odd. I walked in and he was dressing in a T-shirt, khaki shorts and sandals. I remarked that it must be dress down Friday but it was ... Read more
Cleaning out the refrigerator and a pail of fluff
Wednesday, August 31, 2016      18 comments

Interesting mix of topics which I will address later. The day went quite smoothly. SIL was in and he got a lot done as well as I. I have plenty of letters to get in the mail and lots of filing to do and I was pleased to accomplish both. ... Read more
Two and a half hours
Tuesday, August 30, 2016      17 comments

That is how long it took DH and I to catch and crate the chickens. It would have gone faster if we didn't have to reband some of the chickens. Those little plastic bands get caught and pull right off. At least they are easier to put on t... Read more
Change of plans
Monday, August 29, 2016      14 comments

Since all of the bantam breeds of chickens are never outside in the dirt, we did not have to wash any of them tonight. DH can spot clean at the fair, if need be. We will go out early and crate the little ones first and save the larger on... Read more
Washing chickens for the State Fair
Sunday, August 28, 2016      18 comments

Yes, we do have to wash the chickens for the State Fair. You put special shampoo in a 5 gallon pail of water and dunk the chicken up and down quickly, then dunk them in clean water to rinse and put them in a clean area with wood shavings... Read more
A clean house-the kids are coming
Saturday, August 27, 2016      18 comments

I knew both of the younger sons and their spouses were coming and I really needed to sweep and mop after DH left for the farmers market. I kept the washing machine and the dryer running so that the laundry would be done before Sunday. It... Read more
Cleaning up messes
Friday, August 26, 2016      17 comments

It is a shame when people are so quick to push mistakes off onto others just so they can come out on top. One of our farmers is making a big stink for his mistake in reporting his acres in two different agencies incorrectly. Now he and ... Read more
A very full day
Thursday, August 25, 2016      15 comments

I worked hard on my own today to get as many crop summaries mailed as I could beside the routine service work. Home to mow the lawn, mix up a double batch of noodle dough and then spent 45 minutes with DH, catching and banding the last... Read more
Cleaning the barn
Wednesday, August 24, 2016      16 comments

The first room of the "long" barn has always been a tad bit messy but tonight I decided to organize all the chicken crates and peach boxes that we use as nest for the hens that want to sit and hatch eggs. There were so many scattered aro... Read more
Special firemens and EMS meeting
Tuesday, August 23, 2016      20 comments

We had an intense training session on how to use a grain extrication tube and grain vac to remove persons caught in grain bins. It is a very common and deadly situation and too many farmers have died in grain bins when they enter to knoc... Read more
And the goats are gone
Monday, August 22, 2016      19 comments

It was relatively easy to move the goats out of the barn as one of the younger nannies took the lead and everyone else followed right into the trailer. The young vet sorted them in the trailer so it would be easy for him to unload them ... Read more
We finalized our decision with the goats
Sunday, August 21, 2016      19 comments

The newest vet is the area was willing to look at our goat herd and buy the goats we did not wish to keep. I spent most of an hour accessing the various nannies and chose those I wanted to keep and then DH and I helped catch the young ... Read more
Farmers Market update
Saturday, August 20, 2016      21 comments

Well. for all the hoopla about the weekend and why everyone would be having great sales at the market, DH found out differently. He was to stay until 5 pm. Not so bad but when the downtown parade started at 10 am, the crowds left, never ... Read more
Ready for farmers market
Friday, August 19, 2016      16 comments

DH and I have spent the last 3 hours getting ready for farmers market. It is also Riverboat Days so the crowds should be huge. It will be a long day for both of us. I will be housecleaning and then meet him and a couple who we have bee... Read more
