Magical Broom??

"Uh, Mom? Look out at the barn and tell me if you see a broom handle sticking up and moving around," my son said this morning.

Sure enough the broom handle was sticking out the barn door and moving around. Ha ha ha ha!

The culprit? 

I thought for sure it was Rue.

But it wasn't.  That brown fur I saw moving about, at the other end of the broom, was Peanut.

According to my son, who went out to take care of things, said the goats had a "hay day" in the hay.  I guess one daughter will be cleaning up a mess after school.  Maybe she'll double check the gate latches better - ha ha ha!

Now that the goats are taken care of, I need to figure out how to get better.  

We need to finish the goat shed, move all the porch furniture to the barn, and stock the porch with fire wood......I am out of breath just thinking of the work that needs done and the fact I am still coughing.  If fact, three of us are coughing badly.  

Thank goodness it's Friday.  I hope to have extra help from the kids this weekend.   However, my son is now feeling the sickness too.   I am afraid it will be the sick helping the sick.

Dang girl, hope you all can kick this thing soon! Glad the broom had a logical explanation, even if it wasn't a "good" one! ;-)
